In 1979, a television show about two country-bred cousins, Bo and Luke, called the Dukes Of Hazzard first aired. One of the main characters of the show was Luke’s sister Daisy. Daisy Duke was famous for wearing her short denim shorts, which caught on and became quite popular. So popular, in fact, that the short denim shorts look has become known the world over as Daisy Dukes, whether people know that it’s from the show or not.
Today, we are thankful for Dukes Of Hazzard creator Gy Waldron. Without him, and without that show, we wouldn’t have these lovely ladies wearing these lovely Daisy Dukes.
