Huh?

Remember when Bugs Bunny would be dressed up as a girl?

What do you get when you dress Elton John like a girl?

Sir Elton John

If you didn’t know, this is Billie Jean King.

Underwear Utopia

I heard a Seinfeld bit on the radio the other day.  He was telling a story of how his favorite underwear was no longer being sold by the New York department store he shopped.  The punchline was “we look for the same qualities in our women as our underwear, a little support and a little freedom.”

Excellent point.  But this reminded me that I was due for some new skivvies.  I don’t share the same sensibilities of Jerry Seinfeld when I comes to my underwear.  I have many different styles from boxer to brief, but I do prefer the hybrid boxer/brief.  I prefer cotton.  I don’t have a brand loyalty either.  I have tried Hanes and Fruit of the Loom.  Both have surprised and dissapointed.  I think my decisions were mainly economic and I chose the cheaper of the choices.  I have never ventured out to the Calvin Klein or Hugo Boss brands.  Those seem too “pretty boy”.

Side note: Shopping for underwear requires us to view the package (not the “package”) but rather the front of the packaging.  Do we need the male model?  Hetero men only need the clinical construct of the product (as shown in the image above).  It’s a bit off putting to see the guy with the abs and his unnatural shaped junk aimed at us.

Exhibit A:

I digress.

[dramatic music]  I have found my new love.  I have found a boxer/brief to end all searches for underwear.  If Costco sells these in a 24 pack, I shout to the heavens.  What is it?

“Gold Toe”.  Yes.  You have seen the brand around the socks.  They are a bit more expensive but way worth it.

Here is a link where you can “try a pair”.  https://tryapair.amssupport.net/Public/OutofStock.aspx

The waistband is super comfortable and the ass and boxer parts don’t confine.  It’s the perfect combo of cottony goodness and craftsmanship.  KUDOS GOLD TOE!!!!!

Here is a pic of me trying them on.   … just kidding.  If you clicked on that, that’s not me.  It might be Pauly Shore but I am pretty sure it’s that douchebag Anthony Weiner.

Buying underwear (guys know what I mean) is something of a crap shoot.  Yes, the packages lists M, L, XL and most times a waist size but we have all bought something in our range to find out they don’t work.  Hell no do we try on underwear at the store.  Who does that?  Do chicks try on underwear at the store?

Wanna know what I am wearing right now?    😉

 

Equal Time…

Last week Robert Reich posted a video that offered his view of what is wrong with the economy.  It was well put together but it left some doors open for debate and fact checking.  Ironically he mentions the concept that those with the money have the power/influence by using a video and website funded by George Soros (MoveOn.org).  Here is the link to the article:    http://front.moveon.org/scribbling-sharpie-illustrates-the-truth-about-our-economy/

I digress.

The Breitbart site (Big Government) posted a piece that did a good job of shedding some light on the counter argument.  http://biggovernment.com/lmeyers/2011/06/19/whats-wrong-with-robert-reich/
