“My feet are soaked, but my cuffs are bone-dry! Everything’s coming up Milhouse!”
I think the importance of having dry pant cuffs is severely understated on the article about this quote on Urban Dictionary. It refers to this event as “unimportant.” Let me tell you, Urban Dictionary, for anyone who has never lived in a place that it perpetually rains six months out of the year – Saarbrücken, Germany, just to pull a place out of the air completely at random – it might seem like dry pant cuffs are unimportant. The truly initiated know differently. There are very few things that drive me to the brink of insanity quicker than a wet pant leg slapping against my cankle.
