There are a lot of crimes of fashion Cat would like to see banned -- formal shorts, leggings, muffin tops -- but she can't cosign actually making the punishment for bad style on par with real crimes.

Lord knows the resulting exposed thong and pubic bone are a bigger affront to humanity than guys waddling down the street with their boxers exposed.
