Fancy-Butt Jeans Blamed For Scratching Furniture, Says Nebraska Capitol

Caretakers of the capitol building in Lincoln, Nebraska, have noticed scratches on some of the Statehouse chairs and benches and are blaming “fancy butt jeans” for the blemishes. Chairs and benches around the Capitol are nearly 80 years old, and the wood and leather upholstery are suffering damage, according to Bob Ripley, Capitol administrator.

One of the trending fashions is jewels, buttons, shiny rhinestones, crystals, and basically half a jewelry store sewn into the back pockets of denim jeans.

Between 500 and 600 school children visit the Capitol each day, and Ripley recently told a group that if they are wearing “bedazzle bottom” jeans, they’ll have to stand while in the Supreme Court.

Caretakers have had to repair the benches in the court at least a couple of times in the past 12 to 18 months, and the bling-bottomed jeans are to blame.

According to custodians and administrators, it’s a fad that can’t go away soon enough.
