Grandpants is a devious pair of pants that corrupts its wearer. Grandpants Murphy is the only known successful symbiosis with Grandpants. This iteration of Grandpants is an aggressive dissident of President Kardashian and Science Man, so much so that he established the task force TMZCobra to fight their efforts.
Lore Text: "Forged in the dusk of the Cold War, the pants were imbued with a mystic mistrust. It is said these pants transform their bearer into a supernaturally deceptive creature, something beyond the sum of their parts. It is within these polyester confines that a man finds himself cruel and twisted, a puppet of the pantaloon. Evil Grandpants Murphy Esq. is but a victim of this sinister stitching and seam."

Fooling Brian into preparing for an episode about tDCS, only after the cold open does Grandpants reveal the true nature of the episode.
