Ants In Your Pants: A Very Real Hazard

This sounds way worse than the old "Icy Hot in the jockstrap" trick. On Wednesday, Dallas Cowboys fullback Lawrence Vickers left practice -- accompanied by a trainer -- with some unknown ailment. As it turns out, the ailment was actually ants in his pants. Fire ants, in fact.

During a play, Vickers said he felt a stinging sensation below his waist.

"Fire ants got in my pants," Vickers said. "I was freaking out. Oh, ants!"

"I was trying not to squeeze myself in front of women out there," Vickers said. "I wanted to pull my pants down and run inside, but I couldn't do that. When those ants get close to those testicles, there ain't no laughing about that."

Not only were the ants a nuisance -- and that is such a mild term -- but he was also allergic to them. That really seems like just about the worst kind of day at work.
