I was just happy to understand what the hell everyone was going on about.

holy crap! I found it!

from Urban Dictionary.com

6. pants

Not good, not up to the task, not true. Originally a UK schoolboy slang expression: "a pile of pants", presumably the equivalent of dirty, smelly washing. Later spread to adults and abreviated.

"It doesn't work. It's just a pile of pants!" or "I don't like that group. Their music is pants" cf "balsa" and "a piece of balsa".

It's English - brought to you by the same folks who call a bathroom a "loo." Go figure.
