    Wrong trousers Gromit.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Ha! Perhaps they should also be rinsed in a honey truck for that 'authentic' smell and look.

    See the problem is I change out of my filthy jeans BEFORE going out.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    Hey, I have some of those; but, at least I have the shirt to go with them.

    A little blood on the shirt, too.

    I think that some of us here could take this to the next level. I could buy a crappy old camper and set it at the front of the ranch and charge wealthy millennials to stay in it for a week for the "ranch hand" experience. Their week long stay will include an opportunity to repair and/or paint fences, trim trees, cut down weeds, and muck stalls. For an additional charge they can get an upgrade that includes brushing and washing horses. Yet another upgrade will include tractor driving instruction and the opportunity to put out hay. All guest will recieve a mesh back "trucker's" cap with the Moon Ranch logo along with a framed picture of them sitting on a dirty tractor. I could even set up a gift shop to sell real work cloths and boots since skinny jeans don't allow much flexibility. I know several people here have ranches or farms and we could turn this into a chain.

    This summer we'll be having a special "building a haybarn" event. Call and make your reservations soon as spots are selling out fast.

    They already have places like that. There's a zoo up here that for $100 you can. E a zoo keeper for a couple of hours you get the privilege too shovel s**t, and water the animals and for an extra $40 you get a shirt.

    These are absurdly stupid, but will probably sell like hotcakes. But the guy who came up with the "Pet Rock" idea was a genius.

    There are a lot of places you can shovel that stuff for free.

    I'm not so sure this wasn't a publicity stunt, to be honest. Or maybe I'm hoping there really isn't someone in the world dumb enough to spend $425 on dirty jeans. And if there is, I'm pissed off that I wasn't the one to come up with selling dirty jeans for $425.


    The news clip that I watched this morning said that the dirt was synthetic. It was paint and plastic so it wouldn't come off.

    That's it then, I'm allergic to paint and plastic
    I can't buy them, then
    bummer.

    Besides it wouldn't make a mess for Clean to clean up. :fiddle:

    HONEY, YOU'LL NEVER BELIEVE WHAT MY NEW GET RICH QUICK SCHEME IS! I'll start selling my wife's and mine dirty jeans from working out at the ranch. We'll wear them for a week, spray with something so the dirt, poop, grease and grime don't come out post them on eBay for $350.00 to $500.00 depending on how dirty we can get them. I figure the ones with cow and horse poop on them ought to go for an easy $500.00 and maybe $750.00 a pair if I can find someway to retain the smell!

    Heck what's y'all think I can for a pair of real cowboy boots with cow and horse poop on them for??? Now those could be a gold mine!

    My brother and I were dressed in nice jeans, mine were white, and a good shirt. We went with him to the ranch and to my uncle company was free labor so we ended up moving irrigation pipe. Red sand from the country near Ottine,Texas doesn't impress your mother on your white jeans. Just sayin....

    Then there's bottled water. That one was a winner.
