This post is not interesting*

January 13, 2010


I feel honored, in a way, to be able to make this post. To be able to, in some small way, advance the sum of human knowledge. I won’t pretend to be the only person who knows this. I won’t even pretend to be he first person who knew it. But there is something deeply satisfying about figuring something out for yourself and knowing it to be true. Perhaps even being one of the deep, eternal truths.

So, without further ado, I give you this: The more belt-loops it has, the better the pants.

Currently in my closet there are pants with 4, 5, 6 and 7 belt loops. Arrange them numerically by loops and you have arranged them by quality.

I would like to think that one day I will own a pair of 8 loop pants, and I shiver to imagine the poor wretch who’s belt is supported by 3. So, while I would not recommend judging a man by his pants, feel confident in judging a man’s pants by their loops.

*though not particularly interesting, it does contain two easter eggs.

    Are they both links? I only found one. And thank you for my later departure time from home. 😛


  2. Brad Said on:

    And I did not know that about pants. If I wasn’t so late for school already, I’d go to my closet to count belt loops.


  3. Lauren Said on:

    As a young girl I always dreamed I’d marry an 8-loop-pants man.


  4. Beth Said on:

    I can only find one, also. And the pants thing…I’ll be counting loops on Harold’s when I get ready this morning…

    But the one. HA!


  5. Kristi Said on:

    Can’t find the pop-up phrase. I LOVE the pants-link. That is a hoot!

    Some people don’t count the loops; they just invest in something called suspenders.

    Fouund the other link. Very funny Lloyd. My son just got a pair of Lego pagamams from that genre.

    This post is very interesting! I never knew this!

    I have a shirt with 3 sleeves that I bought at a discount store…I thought it was an irregular…but now!


  8. Peggy Said on:

    PS I might have found the 2nd link…but it doesn’t have anything to do with legos! Did I find it?

    The 1st one is hilarious!

    (sniff, sniff…) I found no easter eggs.

      Spoiler Alert! 1. -- Click on the comma after “To be able to,” in the first line. 2. -- Hover your mouse (don’t click) on the line “without further ado”. 🙂

    If I make you a pair of pants where the the waist band is one BIG belt loop, what will that mean???
