Strap yourself in for a question from Finn:

I recently watched your Great British Questions series (awesome). i couldn’t help noticing the mouse in dungarees standing outside the cheesery.

Answer me this: why does it become socially unacceptable for males to wear dungarees past the age of three? It’s annoying as I think dungarees are the coolest clothing item ever, but if I wore them at the age of thirteen I would probably be put in a circus, put in a mental home, or possibly both.

Come come, circuses would go bust if the entertainment they were offering consisted of 13-year-old boys wearing dungarees.

By all means, readers, go to the comments and explain to Finn why this twist of sartorial fate is thus; however I think the more pressing mystery is why anybody over the age of three would WANT to wear dungarees. Pregnant women, I give you a free pass; everyone else, why would you wear a garment that makes you LOOK pregnant (regardless of your gender and relative waifishness), plus forces you to undress every time you go to the lavatory? Why? WHY????

    Wait, dungarees are overalls?? I always thought they were jeans. Okay, now I have to go back and re-image all the British children’s books I read as a kid.
