Memphis, TN - A Memphis middle school principal puts a pop culture "twist" to his "no baggy pants" policy.
If students’ pants are sagging a little to low, they’ll get “Urkled,”...meaning “Family Matters” TV character Steve Urkle and his signature style. And all it takes are a few zip ties...
"You slide it over. Take out the remaining slack, and it's almost impossible to get it off," said the principal, Bobby White.
“I thought it was a joke - until I got Urkeled. All the girls will laugh and they'll tell you how ridiculous you look,” said one 7th grader.
They even have an Urkel photo board for all to see.
One teacher says he was Urkling up to 80 students a week. But students got the point and in five weeks, that number dropped to 18.
