What started out as a joke by Borat has, sadly, turned into a tragic trend in men's summer fashion. This nut-wrenching piece of swimwear known as the mankini is something of a cross between a sling and a neon "V" for victory. Are these guys wearing them for comedy, or do they really like the look? Pictures of guys in mankinis will invariably make you wish men the world over were a smidgen more self-aware.
