Worldwide pants.

Sweet Betsy From Pike
Folk Song
c. 1870
Oh don't you remember sweet Betsy from Pike,
Who crossed the wide prairie with her lover Ike,
With two yoke of oxen, a big yellow dog,
A tall Shangai rooster, and one spotted hog?

Well Ike and Sweet Betsy attended a dance,
And Ike wore a pair of his Pike County pants ...

I'm not one to overly romanticize the past -- I like living in a world with more flavors of ice cream than strains of smallpox -- but I think we can all agree that the tradition of every county having their own pants should be revived immediately.

That would be so awesome. Just image: me at a party, chillin' with my homies, some young punk in low-riding jeans pimp-rolls over and gets all up in my grill, saying, "yo, what up wit the tan khakis, grampa?" And then I'm all like "best be steppin' -- King County pants repraZENTS!"

Then that must mean I'd be wearing the Cecil county overalls with a rebel flag on the ass pocket (where it belongs, of course)...Hee-Haw!!!
