Upon entry into the Royal Enclosure the dress code stipulates knickers.

Have a team of men at the gate checking everyone adheres to this strict etiquette with under-car bomb detecting equipment.

       Is that a bomb in your knickers?

       Damn. My mirror has a crack in it.

       I'm sorry sir, but I cannot let you into the enclosure in your kilt...

       does confirmation of the fact that one is wearing undergarments automatically guarantee admittance to the royal enclosure?

       In my experience removing them usually precedes admittance to the royal enclosure, but maybe that's a bit rude.

       In the link: Is that guy on the escalator wearing knickers, too?

       I'm confused - cars at Royal Ascot must wear knickers?
Is this something like the myth of the Victorians putting "skirts" on piano legs so that they didn't show their ankles?
Is Her Maj offended by the sight of unclad catalytic converters?

       //does confirmation of the fact that one is wearing undergarments automatically guarantee admittance to the royal enclosure?// - I think you'll be expected to wear more than that, and also pay a lot of money for a ticket.

       Unless of course you're Royal yourself, or a horse (or in some cases, both).

       But entry to the royal box has always been the preserve of the few.

       // the preserve of the few //   

       Can you spread it on hot buttered toast ?

       That particular preserve was [benfrost]'s idea.

       is this much of a problem, have people been "going commando" at ascot? C'MON DOVA, COVA YA' BLOOMIN' ARSE!

       //Is that guy on the escalator wearing knickers, too?//   

       [Ling], I'm not sure, but don't you think it looks like some kind of new synchronised escalator line-dancing?
theleopard, Jun 23 2008
  

       Um. Camilla? No thanks. Don't want to know.
