Defective Automatic Trousers

(Thanks to Janice Gelb)

UPDATE: I once wore a pair of these trousers (the Air Force pilots I talked to called them "go-fast pants") when I was taken for a ride in an F-16. It was an unforgettable experience, in the sense that when you throw up that many times, you remember it. Here is my account.

It's the wrong trousers, Gromit!

Were those yours, Dave?

Swedish forces investigators said it was "very likely" that the deadly trousers were to blame for the incident.

funny, that's the same line i gave my mom in high school after a particularly entertaining friday night.

*waves @ Claire*!

nice bumpin' into ya!

expando-pants...I could use a pair of those...

geesh, siouxie, what am i? chopped meat cake?

My wife would probably smack me if I called her a "Strick-jocky".

"dammit, Q, these pants were designed to eject themselves at the right moment, not me along with them! I had famous double-agent Alotta Meatcake where I wanted her, activated the pants, and now she's dead! Oh, and Stockholm was destroyed by the plane."

*snork* @ CG!! didn't see ya there!!

so sowwwry ;-)

removes invisibility cloak. can you see me now!?


*jumps up and down for joy!!!*

*waves @ crossgirl!!*

It's all fun and games until somebody has a trouser-based disaster!

the ejector switch...perhaps wishing to rid itself of old-school fleshy control and fly free..

one letter, just one letter

(a dirty mind is a terrible thing to waste)

"This was a purely trouser-based disaster."

That's the same story I tried!

Wardrobe Malfunction?

The moral of the story: be very careful as to where you pop trou.

cg - I sooooooo wanna hear the details of that high school incident.... ;)


Dave, I remember reading that...hysterical!

jumps up and down for joy!!!*

wishes someone would jump up and down for me...

i went to school with a girl who was known as miss "go-fast pants". wonders if that's where they got the name from.....

*OK - and for the boys, too*


So a wardrobe malfunction totals a $30M jet plane. The SA Air Foece has purchased a lot of these multi-role jets, I reckon they should insist on a re-design.

Trouser snakes on a plane.

*snork!!* @ Stevie

The joke that will NEVER die....

I think the ladies of the blog need a trampoline for all that jumpin'..

Maybe they could use the go fast trouser in the boyfriend trouser ad...

anything you can do I can do better.... No you can't...yes I can...


Is that a rocket in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?

*snork* @ Mad

*snork* at mad!!

Oh my god, I so could not ride in one of those fighter planes. I guess if you think back to that it makes your air travel problems seem incrediby fun.
