Happy Underpants Day!

Just heard it on the radio. It’s National Underpants Day! Yeah, can you believe it? Before you know it, National Underpants Day rolls around again. Phew, time flies!

I know it’s legit, because Hasbro is teaming up with FreshPair.com to put underpants on the Operation guy (whose name, disturbingly, is Cavity Sam). Only, I can’t find anything on Hasbro’s site about it.

Sadly, both NationalUnderpantsDay.com and its sponsor FreshPair.com are blocked from work, so I can’t tell you how NUD is observed. Some minion without Websense filtering will have to tell us what we’re supposed to do today. And no making shit up!

Gyah. You know? I try to keep the true spirit of National Underpants Day, but they’re not making it easy.

Edit: fixed the link (thanks, Musli). I guess, since
I can’t follow it myself. Sadly, it’s National Underwear day,
which isn’t nearly as amusing. “Pants” is a comedy word.

Did you know there’s a Special Homer Simpson Edition of Operation? He talks to you while you tweaze organs out of his body. That’s just…so…troubling.

He comes with underpants, I notice.

I know there is a certain group of people who love National Underpants Day and especially FreshPair’s efforts. Something about male models clad in nothing but underwear…although I believe they also have female models clad in nothing but underwear too to promote their wares.

Essentially, the point is to buy underwear, celebrate underwear, watch underwear-clad people strut their stuff, and a wear a clean pair of underwear (preferrably one that covers as little as possible).

Dear God – Underpants Day has come round again ?

Is suppose that means I’ll have to change mine.

Who knows where the time goes?

No, that’s okay, Uncle B. It’s not International Underpants Day. Carry on!

I’m pretty sure all kinds of people like seeing other people in their underpants, Musli. By which I don’t mean other people wearing my underpants, or seeing other people while I’m only wearing underpants myself. Though. I dunno. There are probably lots of those people, too.

OK, well that was something. I really have to learn not to click on links I find here. Invariably I find something I wish I didn’t.

Spanx Underwear?

That was even before I found the Homer edition.

Yo Stoatie. Found something you may be interested in, considering your recent run-in with the spam-cops…

Stoatie, did you see the NY Daily News? Apparently a great many bloggers not loyal to Obama have been targeted by Libtards and marked as spam or obscene to the filtering companies. Thought you might be interested.

That strikes me as a blatant First Amendment violation.

Do them intertubes qualify under First Amendment protections?

I should think.

No, I mean it. I really should. 🙂

If it’s the Blogger thing, Scubafreak, I have seen it. Blogger is claiming it’s a software glitch and nothing more, but it does seem to have fallen disproportionately (but not exclusively) on the righty blogs.

NY Post is claiming that there is a concerted effort on the part of Lefty bloggers to shut down the righty’s.

Did you catch this at AoS?

I will modify my usual comment about nakedness in movies to say I really don’t care to see anyone I don’t know in their skivvies, and hardly anyone I *do* know (at this point in my life, that means pretty much no – body).

Oh my dear lord…somebody found sweasel.com by Googling “nipplous lesion.” And not only am I a hit…not only am I the #1 hit…I am the ONLY hit for this search phrase.

I’m…conflicted about that.

Hmm…dudes in their underpants at that link have mighty fine statures. They’re gay. What a waste.

Happy Underpants Day(yes, underpants is a better, sillier word, if we are going to talk about underwear),
to those who wear underpants.

I just had to do a search on “nipplous”. I do believe that link that Lokki put-up was a classic. “These supernumerary breasts can pop up anywhere…”

I had no idea.

I also noted that someone got to sweasel’s place via searching for “spell mucous.” I am beginning to suspect that searching for two words in a very strange manner defaults to: => sweasel.com

How that works is both exciting and frightening at the same time. Ah, but once a minion you never get to leave the event horizon.

NOW I can follow the links. Huh. All of those people are in their underpants.

Heh. There is no “topic” on sweasel.com. My threads are free range; they may go where they please. I just appreciate any scraps attention thrown my way.

Kid didn’t want to draw a cat, okay?

Free-range threads.

Sounds like they should be tie-dyed.

I especially like the Kittens of Doom! (emphasis mine). I have a couple reprints of Frees’ kitten books.

Shorpy is very cool, Felix. Looking at those photos, I can’t help thinking that the cats AND the people are long, long ago dead. Brrr.

Some time around 1968, Wendy, when my dad was out of town, my mother tie-dyed his underpants. Concentric rings, like a bullseye. Yeah. The marriage didn’t limp along far after that.

Heh. Sorry about the overzealous filter, Wendy. All three of your messages were sitting there, looking forlorn, so I euthanized them. One way to game the filter, FYI, is to post your message without the link, and then edit it to add the link afterwards.

We’re getting hundreds of spams a day now, so life without the filter would be impossible.

Does that mean I need to go put some on? It should be National Underwhere? Day for me instead.

The Duchess of Weasel. I like it. I picture a Victorian-dressed mustelid.

With respect to underpants, I’m not going to link in anything disturbing (because all of it is really) other than the wikipedia link: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paraphilic_infantilism

Once you’ve seen a grown man dancing around in a diaper talking about not needing a bathroom, you never want to hear about something even as innocuous as Underpants Day ever again. Saw it on the news a long time ago and it has never left me. (damn)

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
