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.

We’ll have to get Nursie’s input on this!
Loon will stop by first I am sure.
Nice manboob touch too, Bearman. Bondi is a haven for men like him 🙂
What’s a Bondi?
Haha, a “Bondi” is either a burger from fast-food chain, Oporto, or a beach. Bondi beach is one of the most popular Sydney beaches.
Thanks Danica….it is wear the black budgie smugglers can be found!
It is WHERE the red budgie smuggler can be found….nearly mistook him for your cartoon 🙂
Dear God, forgive them for they know not what they wear.
That man needs some sunscreen.
He needs a door.
Needs a life 🙂
I think I’ll stick with the boxers. My wife will be happier that way. 🙂
Boxers are too loosy goosy.
Well, commando it is!
At least they’re not all free-ballin’ it 🙂
Who can tell.
Didn’t we have a nipple uproar last year?
2-3 days? They need to pay more attention “outback.”
Yes…nipples and fingers are what I am known for.
AAAHHH! MY EYES!
I actually came across that article last night. I saw the title and just went “Ugh.” I don’t wanna know that guys can do that.
Why only guys. I am sure there are women out there that don’t change daily.
no mere words can describe the seen with our intrepid poster here, but we’re gonna try.
Right now our intrepid poster is on the ground clawing his eyes out and attempting to stick a long pencil in his ear in a futile attempt of making the image go away.
How does the pencil in the ear work?
Hey that cartoon looks like me? It is a good likeness. I actually have a brown pair which I did a post about on a previously deleted blog when I had a bad habit of deleting my blog, then later starting another up again. I reckon that all undies should be brown, a very practical colour. The advertising slogan could be “Brown Undies – Fart with confidence”
I need a mustache. You know if you had a beret and grew your stache out longer you could be a Mythbuster.
So Aussie men like their briefs like I like my women…black and tight. Hmm, it really is a small world.
I thought you just looked for a pulse.
I didn’t think that mattered either !
omgosh is that boy george wearing budgie smugglers!????
Budgie Smuggler haha. I was going to make a Banana Bender joke but not sure if it really is offensive to the Queenslanders
haha i wouldnt care if u did im not a queenslander haha
Of course not.
When did Glenn Beck move down under?
I don’t know Jamms…that bald head sure looks like your avatar.
That’s just plain cruel, even if I do resemble that remark 🙂
I saw on a nature program that many of the worlds most poisons animals live in Australia … I’d probably be more tempted to rock some knee-length Kevlar board shorts (safety first)!
They could still nip your ankles.
When you have a cool accent you can get away with more…
Ahh…that is why Europeans wear speedos and Americans don’t.
Ooh er… almost feel like knee-length black socks would complete the ensemble
He is wearing them. You just can’t see.
I’m laughing so hard I think I will wet my pants this is soooooo true I have two sons that I have to make change there undies and they are in there 20’s
a. Hopefully you changed your undies after peeing yourself and won’t wait 2-3 days.
b. How do you know your sons aren’t changing undies?
c. Kick them out of your house already.
nice moobs and i like the way you depicted a face on the torso!
Yeah sure…I meant to do that.
So you copied from my most recent photo then?
if the underwear fits..as they say.
