Do people really save old underwear? I'm not talking about guys who just wear the same stuff until it disintegrates on their body, you understand.

When you're a kid, you think the world revolves around you.
My parents' church sang a song that went "Holy Holy Holy, Lord God Almighty" which was EXACTLY what my mother said sometimes when she was doing the laundry and I thought...

Remembering the blog's strict policy, I decided to keep it to myself.

I would hate to be the person that opens up the donation packages.

Underwear scholarship is woefully under-served. I applaud this new venture.

When I was packing for my first year in college, my sister gave me wise counsel: "Ultimately, the number of pairs of underwear you take will determine how often you will have to do laundry."

I bet the exibit can stand up by itself.

We're gonna need more Febreeze!

Key word: Old. Like last century or two.

I understand they have William Shatner's girdle and
Nic Cage's 18th century cape.

They'll get my bloomers when they can pry them from my cold dead butt crack.

Old meaning "used" or old meaning ancient. I have both.

Skid marks are optional?

I wonder if they would be interested in these or these?

snork@OtheU - obviously, women back in the day didnt get their underthings dirty, even before washing machines and when people had to wear the same old crud for long periods of time.
bring on the granny panties!
they are NOT looking for men's. ewww.

How about longies? (Union Suits) ...

Of course they'd hafta have two displays ... split, or drop seat ...

Scots will not be represented there, if memory serves.

Sure they will, MtB ... y'all merely won't be able to see 'em ...

And that's a good thing.


The exhibit will either be called "A Short History of the World" or "People of Different Stripes".
