Levi Strauss was squatting around a campfire with a brand new pair of riveted jeans. He was asking the cowboy companions how they liked the rivet reinforced jeans. The Cowboys said they were fine, but they would automatically remove the one in the crotch area. Mr. Strauss was confused as this seam took most of the strain during work, and that seam was most likely to split. The Cowboys said it was because of the "Hot Rivet Syndrome." The Cowboys explained that squatting at a fire as they were, that particular rivet would heat up and burn a particularly sensitive area in the male anatomy. Shortly, Levi Strauss leaped up and went screaming into the night. Yep, he was a victim of the Hot Rivet Syndrome. He enjoyed the rest of his trip and when he went back to the factory, immediately ordering the crotch rivet be removed from the production of his famous jeans. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
