Glenn Beck, Bruno, and Dogs: Ten Best Lederhosen Models

It's that time of year again -- there's a chill in the air (in South Florida, that amounts to being able to go outside without being instantly vaporized by the sun), kids are back at school, and our thoughts turn to Oktoberfest.

The traditional attire of Oktoberfest is lederhosen for the guys, dirndls for the gals.

These short pants are traditionally made of leather and were used for everyday wear by hard-working Bavarian men and boys. Now, they're broken out for Oktoberfest and for when Hollywood needs a good laugh.

We found ten of the best lederhosen models -- from Glenn Beck to a pug dog -- we're counting them down for your enjoyment.
