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.
nonamedufus said…
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.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
