In my limited experience, when it comes time to actually have the kid, you won't be wearing jeans. I'm guessing you won't be wearing jeans when you conceive the kid, either, except possibly as ankle warmers. Either way, it isn't likely to make much of a difference, methinks.

Unless, of course, you are using your jeans as an impromptu IUD, which raises a whole host of other, much more disturbing questions.

And you thought it hurt when the brass rivets on your Levi's got jammed against the outside of your hips...

...sort of like ethnic cleansing equates to washing your genes. Then again, is that the same as laundering your money?

I don't know. I've never met you. Go with your instinct on this one.

Nothing could make the world safe from you having children, Randy. For humanity, please, cut that lil thing off and become a eunuch.
