The Call of the Pants


pants.pngBecause the world needs more things with pants, and because I promised to write more posts with pants, I bring you pants.

    1. These crack me up. Reminds me a bit of a conversation thread on h2g2 where people changed the words ‘love’ or ‘heart’ in song titles to ‘knob’ (though I think your pants titles are much cleverer). I was surprised to see that it’s still going after five years – well, up to last July anyhow.

    2. Gaurav-
      Thanks! I’m glad I could share these pants with you.

      jen-
      Nice pants.

      az-
      I hadn’t seen the knob bit before. But it’s pretty funny. Even without pants.

      panted maypole-
      I love the Walt pants. (And your pantsy pun.)

      Nerevise-
      Tolstoy sure could have written a lot of words about pants.

      Dragonfly-
      I’m not familiar with those books, but perhaps I should be. Thanks for the pants tip.

      Jen-
      Sometimes I just run with the pants.

    3. How about?
      The curious incident of the pants in the nightime.

      Wuthering Pants

      The god of small pants

      The Satanic Pants

      ( that’s it for now. my brain can’t come up with clever enough plots yet. maybe later.)

    4. I’ve just found your blog, following a link from Azahar’s site and just nearly fell off my chair laughing at this pants post. Good thing I’m wearing loose pants, or they might have split!

    5. Oh and I should have added that this post is particularly funny if you’re British, because pants to us are not ‘trousers’ but the garment worn under trousers!

    6. erica lee-
      Lovely pants.

      truce-
      Oh, it’s nice to hear that I made you laugh. At whichever type of pants you prefer. (And thanks so much from stopping in!)
