Excellent rock band names:

Banana Hammock
Sausage Sling
Bush Basket

Not so good:

Fart Filters
Bum Floss

Amazingly,

Skivvies did not make the list.

Whut, no Underoos?

I can honestly say I've never been stumped looking for a name for undies. I like CJ's suggestion. They live down under and they have kangaroos so why not? Of course they may not like wearing undies with little cartoon characters all over them.

love "budgie smugglers"...

Now, what was that language they speak, again? Is Dylan from there, really?
Seriously.... No, never mind. This can't be taken seriously.

people still wear those things?

"Budgie smugglers" is what they call men's Speedo bathing suits here (even on the news!). Of all the Australian slang terms I've heard since I moved here, it's my favorite, closely followed by "hoon" (the term used for low-rider juvenile delinquents).
