To Get Rid Of Baggy Pants, School 'Urkels' Students (VIDEO)

In Memphis, Tenn., middle school principal Bobby White has introduced a comical policy to keep students from wearing baggy pants, WMC-TV reports.

Inspired by 90s T.V. character Steve Urkel, White and the staff of teachers use zip ties to transform each pair of baggy pants into a high-waisted nerdy pair. For students, being "Urkeled" is an embarrassment that administrators hope will change their clothing choices.
