Humpday Afternoon Diversion: LBJ Wants His Pants Let Out

By Chuck Sudo in Miscellaneous on Jan 19, 2011 9:00PM

This clip is years old and has add video added in so many variations, but it's still a classic from the moment we heard it on Nightline fifteen years ago (Steve Dahl had a field day with this tape when it was first released). This is a dicatphone recording of President Lyndon Baines Johnson talking to the Haggar clothing company about customizing a few pairs of slacks for him, in decidedly non-Presidential language.

But LBJ is spot on about the pocket fabric. You don't want your knife and change falling out. (Language, NSFW).
