President Johnson on the phone ordering pants: Mentions his nuts, bunghole

October 11, 2007 09:18 AM

Here's the transcript of Our Classiest President, LBJ, on the phone ordering pants from Joe Haggar.

LBJ: Now the pockets, when you sit down, everything falls out, your money, your knife, everything, so I need at least another inch in the pockets. And another thing - the crotch, down where your nuts hang - is always a little too tight, so when you make them up, give me an inch that I can let out there, uh because they cut me, it's just like riding a wire fence. These are almost, these are the best I've had anywhere in the United States,

JH: Fine

LBJ: But, uh when I gain a little weight they cut me under there. So, leave me , you never do have much of margin there. See if you can't leave me an inch from where the zipper (burps) ends, round, under my, back to my bunghole, so I can let it out there if I need to.

I know you're wondering: Is there audio?  And the answer to that my friends is yes.  It's rather incredible, to say the least, that this conversation was recorded for posterior posterity.

I do like that he carried a knife though.  Someone should research who the last President was that carried a knife regularly.  There was a time when all American men did--my Dad still does.

HT: Althouse.


This is hilarious stuff. LBJ was a rather course fellow, wasn't he?

My dad and most older male relatives also used to always carry a knife. Hell, even I did for awhile (despite being a left-leaning Democrat) until you started getting searched at many places to gain entrance.

I consider a knife a tool, and you never know when it might come in handy. (Not talking about against people, mind you.)

Don't mention your bunghole if you're getting fitted for suits at the brooks brothers downtown. I learned that lesson the HARD WAY.
