But it is real:

Amendment would have saved plumber pants

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (UPI) -- A pair of Florida state senators briefly attempted to amend a bill barring students from wearing baggy pants to create an exception for plumbing students.

Sens. Dave Aronberg, D-27th District, and Carey Baker, R-20th District, submitted an amendment to the bill sponsored by Sen. Gary Siplin, D-19th District, that would exempt plumbing students from rules barring students from wearing their pants too low, the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times reported Wednesday.

"For some, it's a sign of quality … a good housekeeping seal of approval. For some others it's a sign of a job well done," Aronberg said. "This only opens the door just a little crack."

Baker added that wearing tight pants could be a health issue for plumbers that could lead to "gastro-intestinal distress, hypertension and even stroke."

The amendment was withdrawn.
