- September 2006's item of the month from Mr. Store. Its in-store description:
- The Moxiousest pants ever! Various thiefly enchantments, and a 5% discount at NPC stores when worn.
- As stated in the Mr. Store description, the "5-Finger Discount" enchantment equates to a 5% discount at NPC stores.
- First prize in The Raffle House on January 24, 2008.
- This item is one big reference to actor John Travolta and his work:
- "Up your nose with a rubber hose" was a common insult used by Vinnie Barbarino, John Travolta's character on the TV show Welcome Back, Kotter.
- "A race car in the red" is a partial quote from Travolta's character in Pulp Fiction, the full quote being "Right now, I'm a fucking race car, all right, and I'm in the red. And I'm saying, I'm just saying, that it's fucking dangerous to have a race car in the red."
- Travolta also starred in Saturday Night Fever, a movie involving lots of polyester outfits. The position of the pants in the item image (one leg straight with the other one slightly bent at the knee) is reminiscent of the quintessential disco pose that Travolta has on the Saturday Night Fever movie poster. However, it is worth noting that the image was not originally created for this item, but is simply the image for the Knob Goblin pants, horizontally flipped and with "shining" lines added around the edges. So this "pose" matter may be the result of a coincidence. Of course, it is certainly possible that, of the existing pants images, this one was utilized for the "disco pose" reason outlined above.
- Battlefield Earth, another movie in which Travolta starred, was universally panned, apparently even by the creators of KoL.
- The style of the entry, and the pause before the unintegrated movie reference, is similar to that used in Stephen Colbert's "Better Know a District: Hollywood" segment.
- '5-Finger Discount' is slang for obtaining items through shoplifting.
