I currently live in Costa Rica and went to a mall today to grab some food, see a movie, etc. Walked inside a random decent-sized chain clothes store (like a mini-Macy's) and I couldn't believe they actually sold diesel. They were a few years old, although new, and had about 3 or 4 different cuts going for about $20 US. Compared the tags to the ones I own and other tell-tale signs of fakes but were legit.

And yet...there's about 2 other brands sold here that are ghetto diesel rip-offs. Same back stitch, same coin pocket badge, etc. The "fakes" were selling $5-10 MORE.

Go figure. And every girl down here wears jeans without back pockets, just try to picture that one.

Maybe they need to show the world what their mama gave them.

Trust me. It ain't pretty and it ain't flattering, even for those of you who like a little more ba-dunk-a-dunk.

LOL! Yeah I know exactly what you are saying, at my high school all the ghetto women apparently wear these jeans called apple bottoms but its really quite nasty because the only way their bottoms would resemble an apple was if you gave the apple steroids.

You know her too? I met her when I was in El Segundo, looking for my wallet. I think I left it there.

I have to admit, I am an apple bottom fan. My girl wears them and it make her junk look that much better.

BTW I love the way "Ghetto" is used to refer to black culture. So instead of saying black women, you can just say "ghetto."
