Harlem Dude Invents Gadget To Prevent Pants From Sagging

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A New York man said he has invented the perfect fashion accessory designed to keep low-riding pants sagging at just the right level.

Andrew Lewis, 43, said his invention, which he calls `Subs,` fastens around the waist like a garter belt and holds onto the pants via expandable straps with clips at the end, the New York Daily News reported Thursday."


Even thugged-out rappers don`t like to look like a fool with their pants on the ground. This gadget just might be a hit in the urban community where it`s de rigueur to look like a clown with pants hanging half-way down your butt. 

But on second thought the morons who wear sagging pantaloons could care less how ridiculous they look. They might use the gadget as a slingshot, but they won`t use it to hold up their pants.

The inventor claims that sagging is a huge problem in his community (Harlem). It doesn`t speak very well for a community when sagging pants are an endemic problem. If it`s true that drooping trousers are a big problem in Harlem, that`s an excellent reason to stay the hell away from that part of New York City.

What we really need is a gadget that will pull a man`s pant up to his chest, Urkel looks less nerdy than a nincompoop with saggy pants.
