On a Saturday night in the late 1970s, a sophomore at a
New Hampshire college put on a pair of new jeans and
went to a party at a frat house. By midnight, he was
profoundly drunk. On a trip to the bathroom, the bathtub
looked so cool and inviting that he climbed in and
promptly passed out.
The next drunk to use the bathroom thought this was
From the bathroom door he yelled, "Hey! You gotta see
A handful of partiers crowded in around the tub.
"He must be really wasted."
"Next time, remind me to sleep it off in his bathtub."
Then the only girl in the group said, "You know, it's a
shame he didn't think to fill the tub first."
Everyone looked at her as if she were out of her mind.
"Seriously. If you wear new jeans and soak in them in
the bathtub, they shrink to the shape of your body. They
look really good."
One of the guys said, "Then let's do this guy a favor
and shrink his jeans for him!" He plugged the drain and

With the type of seriousness only drunks can summon up,
the little group stood and watched as the tub filled.
When the water was chest high, they turned off the taps.
"He's going to be so grateful in the morning," the girl
said as everyone filed out.
About noon the next day, one of the frat brothers
staggered out of bed into the bathroom. The fiat's
houseguest was still in the tub.

the drunk's face, but still he got no response.
"Look, you gotta sleep it off somewhere else. People
want to use the shower." He shook the guy; the body was
"Oh shit!" he exclaimed.
The frat brother called 911. Minutes later, a crew of
paramedics with their paraphernalia crowded into the
"He's dead, isn't he," the frat president said.
"Yes he is," one of the paramedics said. "Who put him in
a bathtub filled with water?'
"One of the girls who was here last night said it would
make his jeans shrink to fit his body."
"Yeah, it did that," the paramedic said. "The jeans
shrank so well they cut off his circulation. It killed
Variations: In an alternate version of this legend, a
young woman dies when she purposely soaks in a bathtub
filled with water so her jeans will be as tight as
possible. Another variant claims that the woman does not
die, but is mortified when the police and ambulance crew
have to cut her out of her too-tight jeans.
