Cruising phenomenon (Words, Sayings, and Slogans)

"What? Like you're being cruised?"
"Yeah. Remind me which color bandana I was supposed to wear that says I'm straight."

"Cruising" is the act of seeking a partner for sex in a public place. It's illegal, of course (everything fun always is), but that only means people had to think up a clever way to signal other "cruisers" to their status. The rigorous bandana color-coding system is too lengthy (and too frightening) to go into here, but our advice to Wallace: do not carry a bandana of any color in one of your back pockets. In fact, steer clear of tucking anything into your back pocket if you want to keep guys from checking you out.
