Brief query: what’s in a boxer’s drawers?

April 27, 2010

BOXING/

Blog Guy, help settle a bet with my boyfriend, please.

Here we go again with the settling of stuff. That’s all I do anymore. I should be a contender for that Supreme Court vacancy.

boxer briefs 240Enough about you, Blog Guy. This is a sports question about fighters and undershorts. Do professional boxers really WEAR boxers?

Good question. We took two professional boxers, tricked them into taking off their trousers, and checked.

And what did you find?

I can be brief, pardon the pun.

I get it, they wore briefs. Very interesting. What about the color? Was that the same for both?

No.

And the brand?

Nope.

Not to be indelicate, but as long as you were checking, what about their, um, uh, er…..

Not even close.

Oh wait. That’s just my screen.

Well thanks for the pic Baz. I love men in black…well…black anything.

Hey Slick, I sort of thought you’d read the one about British politics, not this one…

Hey Shra, think the lads are finally getting a taste for what we’ve been going through lately?

Face it boys, this post is dedicated to us femmes. At the very least Baz figured it would shut us up!!

Thanks, Spinster, but what you don’t know is, you’re the ONLY U.S. citizen on that list, so Obama may not care much what the others say…

Yeah Baz. Keep ‘em comin’.

I think at least four of us are the wrong side of the pond for asking favours of Mr Obama, Spinster.

Glad to see that you’re catering for your large gay following at last though, Mr B. :)

Thank you Mr Baz!! Yet another female reader is very, very pleased with this one.

Interesting timing, Baz. Today, I received a letter from a man with the last name of Winkie. So, he’s “Mr. Winkie.” Somehow, “Mr. Winkie” seems appropriate for the boxer in the white boxers.

C’mon, ladies, do you really find these two guys attractive?

Hallelujah!!!

That’s great, Spinster. Thank you! Uh, if I get it I can still blog, right?

Dr Doll, the one on the right isn’t bad from the nipples up, at least if he wasn’t flexing so much. From the nipples down though he’s just too much like an anatomical drawing. I do hope he wins the fight though; the one on the left looks like he has the kind of arrogant smugness that needs a good kicking on a regular basis !

I like his tattoos.

CG, they both have the look of a man who, if he were standing beside a beautiful woman, would be looking at himself.

I was just diagnosed with junk blindness

this is very serious

A bit like the busty women Baz has been posting lately and you men have been drooling over eh DoctorDoll?

I don’t give a rat’s ass if they are vain or shallow or whatever. I’m only looking at them, don’t want to live with them. just look.

Mr. B. is an incredible one from what I hear E.

Now I am just gonna stumble my way to the door and leave this particular blog. You ladies have your fun. I am gonna go find an auto show or something and hopefully regain my vision.

Been a blasty.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive
 

Well, it’s not my wallpaper, but I have a folder of ‘shortcuts’ on my desktop. All vital to the job, extremely important ‘shortcuts’.

Ah-yup.

Ah yessssssss of courssssssssssssse!
Strange how Mr.Pilot cant take a dose of ONE blog but happily laps up the boobie ones!
If you go blind with one blog, we have been chronically robbed of all visual senses, which thankfully have been restored with this one blog…
I know that is hi-fi language… but this is how I talk at work.. well, mostly…

You know what Shra? I think ifly is just jealous.

Maybe you should send in a photo so we can ogle your rippling torso instead, Mr P. :)

:::still from the hall:::

Go buy an extra pair of socks to stuff my briefs with like Testies McMammothballs there!

Oh hey sorry I bumped into you there… I am temporarily blind. Yeah.. the OE blog. Yep that one. So hey… can you point me in the direction of an auto show or something?

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive
 

Come now, Mr.Pilot…. if not for me, do it for E… :D

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive
 

You know Shra, and E., if you really want to make this post a success, then you should keep the messages going, to move it into the top-five posts slot. Just a suggestion.

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive
 

How is that going to help with poor Mr Pilot’s blindness problem?

:::text message to Shra, E, and knit_nurse:::

Cheers from the VS caledar blog! Someone told me you wanted me to send you a photo so you can see my rippling torso. Well, if you like how Jell-O ripples then I am perfect for ya! :p

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive
 

You cant text remember!!!
I love Jell-O by the way… :P … Just saying…

:::text message to Mr Pilot:::
How on earth did you get my mobile number?
Jell-O is good for me. :)

Posted by knit_nurse | Report as abusive
 

Trust us Baz, we’ll get this to the top of the most-posted list!

There’s always room for Jell-O! Haven’t had that in ages. Must remind myself to get some ;)

Happy Friday y’all!

:::re,:::

It’s part of the OE text network. Unlimited texting to other OE commenters in case we are in separate blogs but still wanna communicate. It’s in the fine print of the commenter contract. You gave up part of your soul to comment on here, OE gave you unlimited in-network texting.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive
 

Nurse clearly didn’t bother reading the fine print of the contract.

Man, when she gets down to Item 72 she’s gonna go nuts! People always do.

Happy Friday to you too, E!!!
Happy Friday to all the OE commenters who sold part of their soul!!!

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive
 

Ha. I sold my soul once but the buyer returned it as ‘too damaged’. Or was that my heart?

Needless to say, Baz can have it on a discount. My soul that is.

Obviously, I mean the soup, the comments, etc…

You mean how much do I sell my soup for? Well now that’s another matter entirely!

Soup always goes to the highest bidder!
