Oiy! Somethings are best not divluged in a public forum! Nay! Underware... Ugh. Well.. My favorite author of all time had something which I'll paraphrase here so that it applies:


I could not, would not, on a boat.
I will not, will not, with a goat.
I will not wear them in the rain.
I will not wear them on a train.
Not in the dark! Not in a tree!
Not in a car! You let me be!
I do not like them in a box.
I do not like them with a fox.
I will not wear them in a house.
I do not like them with a mouse.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them ANYWHERE!

Setanta,
I'm glad to hear I'm going to be issued boxers (but I'll probably bring my own anyway lol).

Yes there's an occasional twisting and discomfort, but briefs feel like someone is cupping them 24 hrs a day. ;-)

But I digest (not a lapsus manus), this isn't the boxers vs briefs thread and is hardly a place for digression.

I allus thought boxers were for men of an extremely advanced age. (It was so in my youth, except, as Setanta has noted, in the Army.) I still prefer briefs, being as how I'm of an advanced age but not yet (quite) ready for the scrap heap. Let it be known (and recorded, if you wish) that I am old enough to remember women wearing zip-up corsets and, yes, it was a mighty challenge. (But, from time to time, I was equal to it [the challenge, I mean].)

In olden times there were no briefs or shorts,
and men got chafed and raw, (those were not fun days!)
without success, they tried apparall of all sorts,
And Chris Columbus sailed on West in search of undies.

At last some clever weaver broke the knot
And (miracle!) at last his fellows' plight eased
He brought relief to all men's sorry lot
He wove the world's first pair of tighty-whiteys!

PS Fishin
great post!

My dad wore boxers.
I wear briefs (I'm not gonna look like my dad).
My sons wear boxers (They're not gonna look like their dad)
My grandson will wear briefs, I guess.

But...but...this has become an undies thread. Will someone, puh-leeze, say something that is digressive and has nothing to do with anything? Non-sequiturs welcome here.

If Setanta were underwear, he'd be red longjohns of a very old-fashioned variety. I hope Virginia likes them.


Harrrrrrrrrumph!

Goodness - I - I don't think a digression thread has ever turned into an undies thread before....how strange. I have a major tummy ache and I cannot digress to save my life. Now I know why an army marches on its stomach, because I could not march to save my life, either.

I didn't think adults GOT tummyaches?!

WHY! Why?

Virginia is a very unpleasant place here - it is where they grow tomahtoes and lots of marijuana and occasionally get very cross with each other about the marijuana.

The tomahtoes, unlike those here, do not seem to rouse much passion...

In the spirit of true digression, why is it that when a package has the words 'tear here' it usually takes scissors to open it?

Dlowan's probably wearing the aforementioned corset, ehBeth.

Sorry about the tummyache, dlowan

bandylu2- Have you ever tried to tear those envelopes made of untearable paper?

Also, I understand security, but why do you need a scalpel and long nails to open a DVD?
