This photo popped up on my Facebook newsfeed a couple of weeks ago:
The Men’s Half Thong. It’s so wrong, it’s just wrong. I’m not quite sure what I thought when I first saw it. I think I was a little shocked. Which is weird for me because really, I am pretty open-minded. It takes a lot to shock me. And a lot to totally gross me out. But this did it. It both shocked and totally grossed me out.
Come on people, really? Lordy, keep your junk hidden. Give us something to leave to our imagination. Would you like it if we walked around with our….oh, never mind.
Then of course, I inevitably had the next thought that I know everyone else in the free world is thinking: How does it stay in place?
The only thing I could come up with is it has sticky stuff all up and around it. So, it kinda works like a pasty, but instead of for boobs, it’s for penises (peen-eye?). And even though I don’t have one, it kind of pained me to imagine ripping that stuff off my junk at the end of a long day at the beach after sweating and sea salt and who knows what else.
I shared the photo with my followers on my Facebook page (if you don’t follow me there yet, you can do so here: https://www.facebook.com/Momfeldcom). I got all kinds of reactions. Mostly everyone was disgusted. Some had some funny things to say about it. One follower said her friend’s mom thought it was spring loaded like ear cuffs. Someone else said they were wondering about the amount of waxing that would be needed. Then the conversation turned to red, white and blue. Get it? Red, white and BLUE? It was all quite entertaining. Still I needed to get to the bottom of it. I needed to know how it stayed up.
Then a nice follower of mine shared this photo with me and shed some much needed light:
So, it’s like a pant leg except it is missing the leg. Well, it does have a “leg” but it’s the wrong leg. It’s missing a lot of the material except for ahem, one little itty bitty part. Or big part, depending on who you’re talking to.
You stick your leg through it and the string stays in place via butt crack. Perfect. Still not pretty. Then random weird images ran through my mind like my dad wearing it and stuff. Totally involuntary, by the way. Sorry dad, I love ya, but….eww.
So, you know what guys? Can you stick to a real bathing suit? One that covers up a little more? We know you have a penis. You don’t need to prove it to us. And I would like my lunch to stay where it was intended. Thank you, the world at large appreciates it. 😉
