Thought I would start a new periodic feature to supplement the traditional Bearman Cartoons. SFTH or Straight From the Headlines will have me perusing local newspapers from around the globe and posting that which I find interesting or humorous.
Given that I am more popular in Australia than America, my first stop was the Australian papers. I was going to do something on the Prime Minister being “soft” on immigration violations, but then this article about Aussie men and their underwear habits caught my eye. (The Friggin Loon also picked up on this story. I think because she has a google alert on “men’s undies”.)
Australian men were surveyed and half stated that they wait 2 or 3 days (which means 3-7 days) before changing their underwear for a fresh pair. If that wasn’t funny enough, I went on to read this blurb:
Adelaide stylist Filip Odzak said men should pick flattering and attractive undies over name brands. “What every man needs for the best result is a pair of basic black jocks or jock briefs – they always look great,” he said.
This got me thinking. Do Australian men all look like Hugh Jackman? Nope. Seems over 60% of Aussie men just like their chubby American cousins are overweight or Obese. So black jocks on heavy men? I know I long ago switched to boxer-briefs. It is very slimming.
