SFTH: Aussie Undies

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.

    Nice manboob touch too, Bearman. Bondi is a haven for men like him 🙂

    I think I’ll stick with the boxers. My wife will be happier that way. 🙂

    At least they’re not all free-ballin’ it 🙂

    Didn’t we have a nipple uproar last year?

    2-3 days? They need to pay more attention “outback.”

    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.

    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.

    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”

    So Aussie men like their briefs like I like my women…black and tight. Hmm, it really is a small world.

  12. spilledinkguy says:

    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)!

    When you have a cool accent you can get away with more…

  14. Sheila Deeth says:

    Ooh er… almost feel like knee-length black socks would complete the ensemble

    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.

  16. Lynn says:

  17. So you copied from my most recent photo then?
