Tighty-Whitie

I have very, Very, VERY important academic news.

"Tighty-Whitie" is now an official WORD!

The Oxford English Dictionary formally entered "tighty-whitie" into the Engligh language. The definition being...

"Men's snug-fitting white cotton underpants"

There are so many people to thank for this achievement.

First and foremost, there's God.

Then, there's "Hottie McSunglasses" here who braved the elements and sat outside at Hollywood Beach wearing only his Oakley's, a pair of "below-the-calf" tube socks, a pair of tighty-whities and a smirk for the better part of last summer to bring awareness to this horrible omission from the English language.

And then of course, I have to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press. You guys really "get it."

To celebrate, please visit Tighty-Whitie Dude, the blog that brought this "new official word" to my attention and the blog that supplied me with the pic above and many, many others.

Many... others... yum...

Unfortunately most men don't look good in tighy-whities. I prefer a guy who wears boxers myself.

Whim - Boxers are hot in that "sk8ter boi" way...

...didn't know I knew that new-fangled way of spelling, did you? :)...

...but a good pair of tighty-whities with the right tuck of the johnson goes a long, long way to helping a man look as if his inch equals a mile.

Let's be honest, folks: Unless you've just cleaned out, and you've never eaten a vegetable in your life, and you have enough hope in your soul that you've put soap to hole in hopes that some soul will want to see said hole, you have no business risking the business that can only later cause chargrin via the dread skid-marks by the wearing of the "t-ws." Yes, 'tis an epic poem.

Aaron - I know it's dangerous to wear white...

...it's kinda like having a trick over, he spooges on the bed and your bf has one of those CSI black light wands and can spot the protein stain at 500 paces.

But tighty-whities are so cute on!!!

I knew you had ways to find out the dirt on him...but did you do THAT, too? Let's have a quick chorus of "Ruthless!" to celebrate modern dating!

Aaron - My modern dating song is "Another Hundred People" :)

I for one am a great supporter of "Tighty-Whities" and am glad to hear that the word has made the Oxford Dictionary.

Someone once said, 'Tighty-Whities are going the way of the smoker--out the window." Yeah--and someone else once said that sideburns would never make a come back and lo and hebold--sideburns are back.

Love em' or not--tighty whities will always be part of the American butt cover.

Wear em' proud boys.
