Ingeniously aspirated cool suit   (+25, -2)  [vote for, against]
puff, puff

As you walk around in this suit, small bellows in the heels of your shoes puff air up your trouser legs, keeping your legs nice and cool. A small vent in your pockets lets the air out.
A secondary air supply goes from your heels to your trouser waistband, blowing air into your shirt.

"Inventer Creates The First Air Conditioned Suit Last summer was so hot that it inspired the first “air-conditioned” suit, a queer arrangement of tubes supplying a breeze through the whole costume from bellows fastened to the wearer’s shoes." [Klaatu, Feb 17 2005]

The halfbakery software saw the "pirate" in "aspirated" and decided that this invention would be great for pirates. Aye!

Yarrr! There's a stiff sou'westerly a-blowin up my trousers. Reef the hem boys! Haul away!

When you lift your foot to take a step, fresh air comes in through a valve in the heel?

Wouldn't that lead to a trailing miasma of jocksweat? Would these pocket vents be filtered or non?

Arr! Bringing comfort to Shanks' Pony and, with the appliance of a little duck tape over the air vents, Inflato-Pants!

Could this be developed so the old gag of a jet of air lifting a woman's skirt could be self-induced?

[Hoping for someone to do a nice illustration....]

I wonder if this is how Emanuel Swedenborg first thought of the hovercraft?

Sounds like Frank Herbert's "Stillsuit" from Dune.

Will the shoes have a snorkel intake for walking trough puddles?
-- 2 fries shy of a happy meal, Feb 17 2005

...and a filter for walking across sand. Nothing worse than knickers full of sand.

Baked in 1939 <link>

Nice link, Klaatu. You're not allowed to call anything queer any more, of course.

I remember watching "shorts" at the Saturday matinees at the Sellwood theatre and this guy would always be on. He "invented" things like the air-cpnditioned suit and pull-down shades for eating grapefruit without getting juice in your face. His name was "Professor [something]". He also invented a "dunker" for your morning donut, to dunk your donut in your coffee.

...and, he was rather "queer".

Thar she blows!!!

I like this. It would hopefully eliminate the static cling that causes my work pants to attach irritatingly to my legs. [+]

It's like that picture of Marilyn Monroe, except of a man instead.

[tekym] wouldn't fabric softner fix that?
-- Sabriand, Feb 18 2005

Klaatu, would that be Wilf Lunn perchance? (link)
-- DrBob, Feb 18 2005

[DrBob] I remember Wilf Lunn as a youngish guy on Vision On in the 70's - I doubt he was around in 1939!

As Henry walks down the corridor at work, his every step is accompanied by a slight inflation and deflation of his collateral buttock, and a soft "hisss hisss" sound. The only explanation we can think of - Henry is passing gas.
-- robinism, Feb 18 2005

1939? I was responding to the anno about Saturday matinees. I somehow doubt that Klaatu was going to the pictures in 1939.
-- DrBob, Feb 18 2005

[Sabriand] - I've tried, it doesn't work. Not for long, anyway.

calling one's own idea ingenious [-]
-- Voice, Nov 03 2013

(Eight and a half years after this idea was posted I feel compelled to admit that the title - and in fact the whole idea - was hastily contrived to shoehorn the word 'pirate' into the title without actually using that word (so as to (a) appear clever, and (b) avoid contributing to a passing fashion for pirate-themed ideas). This was during a brief period on the Halfbakery in which ideas with the word 'pirate' in their title would have the 'for' and 'against' votes shown as 'arr' and 'narr'.)
