New pants.

Everybody loves new pants.

Why wouldn't ya? They're new. They're pants. They're new pants.

Everybody loves them.

So anyhow, yesterday I buy some new pants. New jeans. I get home wash them and then try them on.

And then I say to Wifey: ::tugging a little loop on said pants:: "What's this thing for?"

Wifey: "You put a hammer on that."

ME: ::thinking to myself:: 'why the heck would I want to hang a hammer on my pants?'

Turns out I bought something called 'carpenter pants'....and with my skills at carpentery it's a wonder I haven't been wearing these for decades. Planin' and a sandin', stainin' and a hammerin'. Night and day. I work with the woods. I'm a maker of things. A carpent.

Everybody loves the carpenter pants. New carpenter pants. Love them.

You're wearing carpenter ants? Good grief. The oddest things are in fashion these days...

You bought Karen Carpenter's pants?? Aren't they a bit tight?

"How can I have any sympathy for someone who was skinny enough to be buried in pleats?"

(A joke Joan Rivers said she really, really wanted to use after Karen Carpenter died, but held off out of respect.)

If I were a pair of carpenter pants
And you were a pair of ladies,
Would you marry me anyway?
Would you have my baby?

Are they leather carpenter pants? For the more 'discerning' carpenter?
