So am I the only one stuck on how many ways one could end speech with "in my pants"?

Was hoping for more though! Quite a short list! I did NOT know about Gonzaga though. That changes things a bit!

Hehe, this would be great if it was real! Woodrow Wilson was the 13th president of Princeton, not the founder. Quick fact checking on other stories shows equivalent nonsense... great way to spend some time though

Uh... I went to Johns Hopkins for undergrad and also took grad classes there and worked there for 6 years. There's no such thing as "Baby Talk Day." I don't know about the rest of these "facts," but the JHU one is certainly false--at least during the time I was there (2002-2012).

Now that they've been pretty much established as fictional, can someone mock up a tabloid picture for them? XD

So, my fellow students, we come here to work hard, to learn, and to struggle our way to the top. For those of you who came to party, I warn you, there are no parties on this campus, only in my pants.

  • Now go do great things...in my pants.
  • When you're off making a name for yourself, remember fondly the times you've had...in my pants.
  • You can accomplish anything you set your mind to, even if you're dressed...in my pants.
  • Also, if anybody owns a blue Honda Civic, you left your lights on...in my pants.
  • I'm at this point contractually obligated by the university to say...in my pants.
  • Ich bin in my pants!
  • So remember those words, for they were first spoken by our founder N. Meipants.

I attended George Washington University in the '80s and practically none of these things were true there, except for streaking through the men's showers - in my pants.
