We all know the quote: “What is it you want, Mary? You want the moon? Just say the word and I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down.”

Except that in this case it wasn’t from It’s a BeautifulWonderful Life, but at a competitive debate at Emory University in Atlanta. Professor Bill Shanahan, debate coach at Fort Hays State University, KS, apparently misunderstood the “it” in “pull it down”, and dropped his pants:

“The video shows Shanahan explode into a feral, expletive-laced tirade. The debate coach was caught on tape jumping around and gesticulating wildly before bending over and pulling down his khaki shorts, exposing his underwear. The tape was posted on YouTube Aug. 2 and had over 88,000 views by Thursday.”

Update: original video removed, new video is here.
