Sometimes Packages Can Be Deceiving

Okay.  We had the guy with the explosive underwear, remember?  Remember?  Yeah, you know, the guy they asked "Is that a bomb in your pants or are you just glad to see me?"

Well, get this.  Men in Britain can downgrade that bomb but still be able to beef up their briefs.

Excuse me?

A British department store group called Debenhams was selling a very unique pair of men's underwear online.  And as Valentine's Day approached last week sales shot up 76 per cent.

You might say these are underpants that enhance, if you get my drift.  They're sure to get a rise between the thighs and a reaction from your girl...up to a certain point.

The underwear are advertised as "anatomy-boosting".  Uh-huh.  They work the same way as a woman's cleavage-enhancing Wonderbra in that they use a "lift and hold" feature in the front.


Who would have thought?  Package-enhancing underwear for men.

The department store stands behind its product...as long as they're worn.

They won't be held responsible for the let down, I guess you could say, once the pants come off.

Good grief!

Or should that be good "brief?"

heh heh heh

And that's what the world really needs is another phallic booster, cuz it's been basked over so many times!

Long live the package!

Well, Us women have had the padded push up bra for years. Not that I know anything about that...just saw some ad somewhere.

Finally. An alternative to bananas in your pants, which will no longer result in that "ripe" smell. Wait. No fruit is involved in this, right?
Me-Me King said…
Wow, whatever happened to just adding a pair of socks to your briefs?
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Yeah, I think the package deserves a lift.
nonamedufus said…
Jackie: The sell them on the department store's site.
nonamedufus said…
mama-face: Wouldn't a guy have to wear tight pants to have an impact with this briefs? All sounds a little constricting to me.
nonamedufus said…
Deb: I dunno. I think bananas have their appeal.
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Socks? I love the scene from Spinal Tap where the guy goes through airport security with a cucumber wrapped in tin foil that sets off the alarm.

If a guy really wants to impress me with a package, it had better be blue and have "Tiffany" written across it.

Jayne: That's weird. who'd get a name tattooed on their package?
Skye said…
"Comp" is my confirm word and generally speaking it stands for compensation. Are people really so insecure in themselves that they need these "package boosters"?

Never mind answering that!
Ziva said…
I'm asking myself, why not just sell regular underwear but throw in a complimentary sock for everyone's viewing pleasure? And since you obviously wouldn't score with a girl while wearing a sock in your underwear, the sock could instead double as an aid when the mood strikes. Ingenious.
nonamedufus said…
Skye: So that was a rhetorical question?
nonamedufus said…
Ziva: An aid? Like an athletic supporter?
Ziva said…
I was thinking more in the line of friction provider and load catcher. But I'm not a guy so I wouldn't know anything about that.
nonamedufus said…
Ziva: 1 is the loneliest number.
Don said…
That's what bananas are for! Save your money and go with a big banana and two firm peaches. Whatever you have left after they shrivel can be served on your cereal.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Gotta love ya Don. You're always so practical.
What, no link? You're actually going to make me Google these male enhancing underpants? I have a...erm...a friend who might be interested in a pair.
nonamedufus said…
Mike: Don't get your shorts in a knot.

Enjoy!

Are people really that worried about their package? If I could find a descent man, I don't think I would worry about his package.
nonamedufus said…
AmyLK: It takes all kinds. And I guess it takes all kinds of marketers to please them...and make a little money doing so.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
