'Pants on the Ground'

The Nipply Origin

1/18/2010 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who inspired "General" Larry Platt to write "Pants on the Ground" wasn't just a gold-toothed trouser sagger -- apparently, the guy was also a big, bottle-sucking baby.

Pants on the Ground: Click to watch
The limber, 62-year-old went on "The View" this morning where he rocked out another rendition of the "American Idol" instant classic -- and revealed that he observed a droopy-bottomed person sucking on a baby bottle when he was inspired to write the song.

Platt's revelation could only mean 2 things -- either the pants-wearer was a grown man in desperate need of a belt ... or Platt wrote a song about an infant.

. Anyone who doesn't believe this is not a toady fabricated and produced American Idol production is naive. And ABC was booked before this guy was even aired on American Idol.

He will be on Oprah shortly. Two weeks. With Simon.

Whoopie, why don't you bring back Stepin Fetchit? You can have him entertain with this guy. I guess it just depends what you call entertainment.
