A Tribute to Harvey Korman

The younger contingent of the Mythbusters was doing an investigation on blue jeans myths. One myth suggests that if you wear your jeans in a hot bath for 6 hours in order to get the perfect fit those jeans can shrink and cut off the blood supply to your head and you could die. So Kari (can someone explain to me why I get so many people coming here looking for Kari Byron of Tory Belleci in the buff?) went to see a doctor to get an expert opinion on the viability of such a myth. She's chosen an MD who has the perfectly trustworthy grandfatherly look and she asks him if the myth is plausible. His response?

"Well, it pains me to say yes because I love tight jeans."


  1. Seriously? That's a plausible myth?

    Oh, and American Gangster? TOTALLY worth the eight bucks to get a ticket. I would have liked to have to work a little harder to "get" it, but it was a WICKED long movie and I didn't even notice. SO good. (oh, and add Cuba Gooding, Jr. to the hot people from that movie, please. He was a total psycho asshole loser in the film, but he was a good looking psycho asshole loser...)

    Well, if you're going to be a total psycho asshole loser, I think being hot in so doing is really key...

    Sorry, got distracted.

    Can you imagine SITTING in hot water and jeans for hours? THIS is a myth? Actually, come to think of it, I've heard that one - way back when tightest jeans - like the ones we tapered and did up with pliers - were "in."

  3. Russell Crowe, yes! In Gangster and the tight 70's jeans.
    I wouldn't have missed it for the world!

    And in the 80's, yes, we did do this.
    Remember shrink to fit Levis?
    Am I the only one? Joe! Where are you?
    "Can't even take a shower with a beautiful women without wearing your jeans?"
    They felt like paper when you bought them.
    And after a good bath or shower... like you had them forever.
