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,
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.
