28 May 2007

I just took my bra out of the freezer [More:] in case anyone remembers or is curious. It wasn't bad, but I guess I didn't have to wear it home - I took right back off. Actually, if I hadn't soaked it first, it could be a beat the heat tip for summertime.

Umm, there was a slumber party in IRC last night and I hazed myself. Apparently certain mechazenettes deported themselves poorly in adolensence.
I'm still curious about why you did it, but I'm glad you tried it. It's not really a trick you're supposed to play on yourself.

Speaking of tormenting people with underwear. A coworker that I worked with many years ago sewed her husband's fly shut for April Fool's Day. It's a good gag if you have a male partner or friend that pees through the fly.

Yeah, guys like me and jonmc who admit to peeing sitting down wouldn't have even noticed that one... I'd check my old underwear from when I was living with my crazy ex, but none has survived this long. (TMI)

It was more like an experiment than a trick, mudpuppie. I had never heard of such a thing, and I understand the world through experiencing it. So, like, what if some thirteen year old comes crying to me that people put her bra in the freezer at the slumber party? Now I'll be able to tell her to toughen up. Part of my preparedness plan.

(obviously not a parent)

Heh. That reasoning is awesome.

Heh. I have a pair of boxers that are sewn up in front. I needed to wear them on stage without pants. The costumer didn't want them back for some reason...

I am completely confounded.

But whatever you're talking about, I hope it was fun.

I'm glad to see that it's not just me who is totally confused.

No, no, there was this thing, that (ahem) mudpuppie and occiblu said, that the first one to fall asleep at a slumber party had their bra soaked and put in the freezer. This sounded like madness, so of course, I did it. (Had back up bra, also have braless clothes).

Wait, what? It's a prank?

Gee, I read "I just my bra out of the freezer" and thought "Aaaaaaaaah, good summertime tip!"

Fresh dry panties, chilled in the freezer an hour or so, can make a scorching hot day bearable. Aaaaaah.

I feel I've said too much.

If i could figure out a way to keep iced pads in the base of my bra cups i would.

Wait, there's actually men who use the fly on tighty whities? Or are you talking about boxers, LoriFLA?


When I worked in a park district concession stand in high school, I had a t-shirt that I repeatedly threw in the freezer and then thawed out on hot days. It was amazingly soft by the end of the summer -- I think the ice crystals tenderized the cotton. (Good thing it was a heavyweight t-shirt or it probably wouldn't have survived.)

Um, I do. Am I in the minority on this? I've always assumed most guys use the fly.

I can only speak for myself, of course, but back when I wore tighty whities I just pulled down the band. Much easier access that way, vs. the intricacies of the Y-front. Especially if you've had a few beverages and/or are in a hurry. All of which was obviated by the switch to boxers.

Wow. Shows how much I know. I always thought that's what the flap was for.

Oh well.
posted by mudpuppie 29 May | 00:37
Oh yeah, that's exactly what it's for. Just, y'know, not a very good design. Boxers are far superior on that front. And all others, too, as far as I'm concerned. Except support, of course.

Why am I discussing underwear on the internet? Now I'll never be president.

I'd vote for you, bmarkey.

Huzzah! I'm back in the hunt!

Running on the boxer vs. briefs ticket will give a whole new meaning to the phrase "support your candidate".

My fellow Americans and for our purposes here, you are all my fellow Americans I come before you this morning in a time of worldwide conflict. My opponents would like nothing better than to exploit that conflict and further divide this great nation of ours. Red versus blue is no longer enough for them. Now its boxers versus briefs, thongs versus panties. They want to give our entire country one enormous atomic wedgie, from sea to shining sea. Are you going to stand for that? Are we, as a people, going to allow our collective underwear to be pulled up over our heads, just as weve allowed the wool to be pulled over our eyes for lo, these many years?

I say no. No to the dividers, no to the naysayers, no to the enemies of freedom.

My friends, if you see fit to elect me President of these United States, I will do everything in my power to get Big Government out of your underpants and back into white-collar crime, where it belongs. To that end, my first act as President would be to repeal the United States Panty Act, a needless and quite possibly unconstitutional piece of legislation that should never have seen the light of day.

Part of being American is having the freedom to choose the way you want to live your life. While I personally prefer boxer shorts, I have no desire to enforce that choice on society in general. As an American citizen you have the right to clothe your nether regions in any way you see fit, and I will defend that right to my dying breath. For I firmly believe that its not the drawers that make the man, but his heart and his soul. I believe that a woman is more than her unmentionables she is the ideals that she strives for, the hopes that she cherishes, the honesty and dignity she brings to her daily life. My friends, I believe in you.

So come, you who wear boxers, you who wear briefs. Come, you who wear the sacred undergarments of the Latter Day Saints, you who choose to go commando. French cut, full waist, tap pants, come. In my shorts is a big tent, with room for all of you. Come, and join the party in my pants.

My name is bmarkey, and I approved this message.

Paid for by Citizens for bmarkey.

posted by bmarkey 29 May | 03:12
Boxer Rebellion is good, too. Anything that will get the message out. The main thing that we want people to know is that you're the peepee's candidate, that you're on the ball, and an advocate for unfettered democracy.

The Tighty-Whitie party think they have it buttoned up, and the Brassierists have a big campaign chest, but you speak for all those who dress on the left, at a brassroots level. I think we can win this thing swing the vote!

Hmmm. Looks like the campaign has peaked already.
posted by bmarkey 29 May | 15:16
I realize nobody is looking at this thread anymore, but I found this AskMe entitled Why is the opening at the front of men's briefs still there if it's rarely used? very illuminating. It starts with flaps, covers leaks, and ends up with butt-wiping.

I've never done this sort of thing before, but...
