We tend to hate anything the words "paper bag" can be attached to. Except actual paper bags, obviously. They're free to call themselves that, with our blessing.
These shorts don't even LOOK like "paper bags" to us, though. No, these have a different problem altogether, because when we look at them we don't see "cute shorts": we see "OMG, I had a total bathroom emergency, ruined what I was wearing and was forced to quickly fashion myself a new pair of pants out of toilet tissue."
And once we've seen it, it can't be unseen.
