No pants / Becky Johnson

No pants / Becky Johnson

Dates: 1997 January 13

Report by Brigham Young University folklore student Becky Johnson, who collected information from Catherine McArthur. According to the story, a guy on a date when sick tries to pass gas, and poops his pants. He attempts to buy a pair of pants without her noticing, on the pretext of buying a sweater, and gets as far as throwing his pants out a restroom window before discovering that he has been sold the sweater and not the pants. He improvises with what he's got and escapes unseen.
