They invented pants because spending the whole day on horse back chafed their chaps.

Humans are easy to stop. You just need a little bit of fire, maybe some rope. Perhaps I've said too much already.

Without my pants, where would the party be?

Pants are easy to stop. Scissors.

They're useful for riding, but overall, pants are no fun. They're one of things people can legitimately blame on white people pretty much exclusively, and we have no defence. We took the pants thing waaaay too far.

Scissoring gets messy.

If girls never wore pants, then skirts wouldn't be as awesome. But yeah, that's really all I got.

People almost never ride horses anymore.

So the question is no longer why pants were invented, but why are we still wearing them?

I'm sorry, I have to stick up for pants. I prefer everything snug and organized, rather than flopping loose in the breeze. You can take your robes, togas, utilikilts and whatever else you might have as a substitute for pants and stuff them where the sun don't shine.

This headline is obviously propaganda by the Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen
 
2014-06-12 08:47:14 PM  
What are these "pants" of which you speak?

In England, pants are underwear, as in 'panties'.

We had a similar article and headline last week, but I like this headline better.

Upholstery. Don't leave skid marks on the sofa. Put your f*cking trousers on.

Has to be the most retarded tag, dumbest headline, and most uninteresting article I've ever seen posted on Fark.
 
2014-06-12 08:51:56 PM  
One things the Arabs got right is those robes they wear.  Those just look comfy.

F*ck you! I'll wear pants when they pry them on my cold, dead legs.

Trousers. Put them on.

I use to not mind pants, but these days the minute I walk in the house they're off and cozy shorts are on.
 
2014-06-12 08:58:57 PM  
I don't get the hatred for pants. I'm a woman so I'm not even expected to wear pants, but I do anyway because I prefer to. Jeans mostly.

I live on Kauai and haven't owned a pair of pants in years. Daughter came over last year to get married and I HAD to go buy a pair....they just felt weird(the pants, not the daughter)
 
2014-06-12 09:01:44 PM  
Meh. This thread is a load of pants.

Yea, but do you talk to your pants?

RTFA. They were invented by Chinamen, not by Whitey.
