If jean shorts are jorts, and jean boots are joots, and jean shirts are jirts, what is "jeans" a contraction of? 🤔

@directhex It's recursive: jean jeans.

The recursion gets really brutal when you consider a jean jacket is a jacket.

In such brutal recursion we guard our language with inherent paradoxes to crash the class of computers that make good Star Trek villains immediately on introduction to the Fediverse. (Proactive meme paradox generation is a spell of protection.)
