Frosty Knobbly Knees

The wearing of shorts in inappropriate climes:-

The Scouts: tottering, squatting, struggling to survive in damp undergrowth somewhere on the outskirts of Melbourne during its thriving winter.

Charles Hawtrey: walking the frosty English countryside in Carry On Camping (1969).

The two young killers in the Michael Haneke film Funny Games (1997) – they’re also wearing thin soled sandshoes without socks – politely murdering the owners of holiday homes in the chilly Austrian lakes region.
