News, but not the serious kind
I see England, I see France…
This is National Underwear Day. I know what you’re saying, “But Bob, I thought that was back in February!”
No, that event, which we covered, was Brazilian National Underwear Day, which is on a different day because they’re in the Southern Hemisphere or something, and also because they have a different word for underwear.
I still don’t know exactly what we’re supposed to do to celebrate, but if you haven’t changed your underwear yet in 2008, that would be a real good start. And don’t forget to take some underwear to the office today, for the traditional Undie Exchange.
Meanwhile, this blog has a lot of items with the underwear tag, and you will probably want to read them aloud during the festivities at your office. Here are my favorites:
