Wronged By a Thong

I'm sure you have all heard of this by now. I would be remiss if I did not mention this bit of absurdity. All the details are here. Basically, a woman is suing Victoria's Secret because as she was putting on the thong she had purchased, a decorative piece flew off and hit her in the eye, which supposedly damaged her cornea.

First of all, who would want to purchase underwear with decorative trinkets sewn on them? I mean, I have enough lumps and bumps of my own, I don't need extra.

Secondly, really, what is the purpose in buying a thong? I know ... all my thong-wearing friends say they wear them because they don't want a visible panty line (Side note: These particular thong-wearers are all little skinny things ... I think that's a requirement for wearing a thong too. ). Sorry to all you thong-wearers, but I'd rather have the panty lines. Granny panties rock, mostly ... OK, maybe not "granny panties," but at least cotton briefs. You gotta love a good cotton brief.

Thirdly, why would someone want the world to know that they are incompetent in putting on their underwear? I think if this happened to me, I would take every measure to keep it on the down low.

Lastly, come on, lady! I'm not gonna sue Toyota for having a faulty bumper because I backed into my own fence and the bumper came off. I'd have a lot of lawsuits going on if I sued everyone for all the stupid and clumsy things I've done.

Your thoughts?

Mid-rise fruit of the loom cotton briefs all the way! lol
At my daughter's graduation there was a girl sitting in front of us that had low-rise jeans on and you could see her thong, it was made out of a chain and beads, what in the world?! Was that her statement to the world "Don't hate me because I'm Beadyful"? LOL

Thongs are evil. Hate them. I did hear of an awesome solution via TV, and its probably TMI but, whatever. I get these nude colored stretchy boy short underwear at the department store and they're comfortable like normal undies and they don't show up through white pants!

Yep, that was too much...

Oooh, I like Sarah's tip. I'm going to have to ask her where she found those. :)

Our whole society is so sue-happy it's ridiculous. This is on of the more absurd ones I've heard of.

Stretchy sounds good to me! I never understood thongs.

Here is one for you . . .

I have a cleaning service come to do a thorough cleaning on Fridays. The one particular week one of the girls was new to the cleaning crew. She was a largish woman and the crew leader had her clean upstairs away from everyone because everytime she bent down(when cleaning this is all the time) her thong and vertical smile would show. The crew leader didn't want me or my children to be exposed to it!
Thank you soooo much!

Oh my mercy-
I am so all about cotton-
I Despise THONGs!
I think it all has to do with having a baby (babies) and having some residual skin on my stomach- I don't want anything cutting me in two!

I've not been to your blog before , but I am in the Spandex Granny Panty crowd and I am sure as the stars twinkle, that SPANDEX and CHOCOLATE were invented by the same person : )

Last night, I stood in front of my kitchen cabinet and opened it. . onto my forehead. I'm thinking of suing them for my bruise. What do you think?
