Under it all


Having mentioned the connection of holidays and underpants at Xmas, I would be remiss to ignore the strong link between underpants and Valentine’s Day. Let’s not kid ourselves here, Valentine’s Day is more than another opportunity for Hallmark to make dollars — it’s an opportunity for men and women to try to get some action. It’s impossible to walk through the mall without seeing “novelty” underwear covered with hearts. Somebody must be buying all these panties adorned with Cupid (who wears nothing other than underpants). So that means you are going to have to be original with lingerie purchases. Visit for men’s and women’s underpants emblazoned with witty sayings such as “Cat got your tongue?” or “Eat organic” ($11).
