Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

Thursday, September 28, 2006

SLIPS, BRAS AND PANTIES, OH MY!


Put your eyeballs back in you head, men, this is not a see-through skirt.

They're just prints (of panties) on skirts that are all the rage with young women in Japan.

Supposedly the rage is coming to America, according to an e-mail circulating on the Web.

OK, so the skirts are not unlike T-shirts with rippling abs printed on them that some men wear here at the Shore.

But what do these skirts look like from the front? And, where do we draw the line for appropriate daywear?

Would any woman out there actually wear them?
It does get rid of the VPL (visible panty-line) problem.

I love them. I wonder if the larger sizes come with cellulite?

Absolutely horrible!!! But if you have a nice ass, go for it. I think its offensive.

We'll immediately know something about any female who would wear them in public - they don't care what anyone thinks about them and they don't have much self respect. I doubt they'll catch on here. Then again, I never thought the day would come when I'd see live model commercials for bras on TV. Thank God the commercials for sanitary products are still using illustrations. They are still using illustrations, aren't they??

These skirts were all the rage in Sodom before the entire population was turned to salt. Pass the shaker, please.

Apparently, it's an urban legend:

I went to an all girls High School. Our gym shorts(bloomers) were more "modest" than that.Once we had a fire drill and we all were mortified that we had to go out on the sidewalk , 50th street in NYC opposite The Waldorf Astoria, with our gym outfit. Now "Anything Goes" according to Cole Porter!
P.S.
I hope those who wear that have CLEAN underpants.What next-no

As usual, deception is more tittilating than reality.

It could be worse, at least she is wearing normal undies and not a thong! If it is "that time of month", what's next? I'll leave it at that! And worse yet, it could be a man wearing it!

It'd be great to wear in the produce section of the supermarket (by the bagged salads section}..think the spinach e coli scare is over, eh? The next design could be a piece of toilet paper hanging from it!

Or, to get back at your kids for poor behavior, wear it to the next sporting event or better yet, back-to-school night!
