The web is abuzz with pants. With so many people writing about pants these days, I’d be letting them down if I didn’t put up a post about it.
I bring to you: This Week¹ in Pants.
First, I’m pleased to report that the “in my pants” music meme is alive and well (and not just in my pants). Dee of On the Curb is the latest to report in:
- Dee: Lonely People in my pants
- Mary: Dancing in my Pants
- Magpie: Thursday Thirteen In My Pants
- GirlGriot: Party in My Pants
- Painted Maypole: A Little Pants Music
- FatBoyFat: Music in my pants
- Rima, whose musical pants started this run: Sunday Funnies In My Pants
- Sally and De also participated in the comments on the sound of music in my pants
You, too, can have music in your pants.
And wearing pants elsewhere…

And would you believe that the realm of pants extends even beyond the blogosphere? I scoured the headlines for news of pants around the world. Here are some of the top pants headlines:

¹ Okay, fine, so many of these posts are older than a week. But “This Fortnight or So in Pants” isn’t nearly as catchy as “This Week in Pants.” I mean, just check out the acronym: TWIP.
