Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Tucking in at all. Be loose people!

I'm curious about this: What do the rest of you think is worse, stains or holes?

My logic is stains are worse because they convey uncleanliness, whereas holes convey "poorness" (don't know how to word it). My sister insists holes are worse than stains because someone could have left the house with a clean shirt and gotten it dirty without a chance to change, whereas a person with holes in their clothing almost undoubtedly left their house knowing they had holes in their clothing.

I have tons of holes in various pieces of clothing, but I still wear them. A few of my sweatshirt's cuffs are basically hanging on by threads at this point, the rest is pretty much fine, so I keep it around.

Um, maybe you should place a comma in there...

Well... if you're people, and you be loose, you become loose people anyway. So, I suppose it works either way.

I like wearing my shirts till they fray at the edges - you know - when the little threads hang from the edges, and you have holes where your armpits are... ventilation for summer!
I think my friends called it "Thread Bare"...

If you want, you pay...
But, if you need, you pay more!

I had a T-shirt in college with some unknown Japanese or Chinese characters on the front. I wore it a lot until I passed an Asian guy who started snickering. I threw the shirt away, yet I still wonder what it said...

Slacks and a T-shirt, almost as bad as an oxford with a tie.

Poverty is a better way of saying poorness. And when I think of stains, I think of something embedded in the fabric. Not just a splash of ketchup. Stains indicate someone doesn't take care of their clothes and it just looks grungy and disgusting.

Holes in the armpits...big ones. I can't get my husband to get rid of a tshirt he got when we went to our first concert together, even thought the armpit holes are almost as big as the armholes.

But, I still wear most of my woot shirts though they all have these tiny little holes in the front near the hem...I have no idea why they form, but I can't get rid of Fire Swallower just because of a little hole.

I'm such a hypocrite ;)

I think stains...however, upon reflection, picturing my dad and all his pants with holes all over them...I'm not sure which is worse. My dad has money, they make a good income, but he insists that the pair of shorts with nearly obscene holes in it is "just fine" to wear out to family dinners. My husband usually is a messy eater and always has stains on his shirts. Financially, it's hard to keep up with replacing them but I cringe because they convey he is just a filthy person - which isn't true. He just can't walk past a sample of anything without SOMEHOW spilling it down his shirt. I think all the guys in my family need major makeovers...

I lived through the '70s. Too many unbuttoned buttons -replete with gold chains and anthropoidal chest hair- brings back painful memories.

Your fingernails puncture the fabric when you pull the shirt down.

Holes are a sign that the garment has been loved.

And many of my favourite people are loose people. Still, my inner grammar nerd is a little mortified...
