Next time you are late for an important meeting, feel free borrow Canadian MP Pat Martin’s excuse.
The Member of Parliament was not in his seat for a crucial vote, and when asked by an opponent for an explanation, replied by claiming his underpants were too tight.
The constricting garment — purchased on sale from a department store — were a couple of sizes too small and thus prevented Martin from “sitting for long periods.”
Watch the video for yourself (the hilarity begins at the :30 mark):
Do you think it’s a valid excuse? Let us know below!
