The Underpants of Homer

February 4, 2008

Although my quest for superhero underpants remains unsuccessful, I have discovered the next best thing: Homer Simpson underpants.

They’re electric blue boxer shorts with ‘Doh!’ and ‘Donuts’ speech bubbles. Sadly, they’re also 300 rupees a pair. Sadness comes.

The Underpants of Power

January 15, 2008

Bangalore Central now has Spider-man, Noddy, and Pokemon underwear for sale. Tragically, only in children’s sizes.

This is most discriminatory. Why do only kids get to have superhero underwear? I want superhero underwear too. Though I’d prefer Saint of Killers or Bigby Wolf on my underpants. Commentors, please refrain from making jokes about Apollo and Midnighter.

(Incidentally, the Underpants of Power was a concept used in a strip comic which got discontinued within almost a year. I’ve forgotten the name. The main character was a little girl who lived with her widower father. Her best friend was a nerd and there was another spoilt-princess character. Does anybody remember what this was called?)
