Wonderjock? Come On. Really?

Liz gets her panties in a wad:

What the hell?

Isn't it bad enough that we taunt our little girls into developing sever image-related paranoia by the time they are seven? Do we NOW have to bring penis size to the forefront of our dresser drawers as well?

Welcome to the Australian invented Wonderjock. Designed to provide the all-important buldge where there is little more than a smooth surface.

I can understand how a man, say in a tight black leotard bunny suit, might want to don a wonderjock but for a typical day at the office, doesn't this seem a little extreme?


Extremely HOT.

"The design of the underwear, separates and lifts. The fabric cup protrudes everything out in front instead of down towards the ground," said "Wonderjock" designer Sean Ashby.

Ashby said the idea for the "Wonderjock" was the result of online feedback from customers who expressed an interest in looking bigger, just like women using the "Wonderbra".

"When you go to a department store to buy underwear you usually get a grandmother serving, which is not the ideal way to get feedback," said Ashby. "Our customers give us feedback. We didn't realize that big is better."

I want to know what department store is allowing customers to try on their jockies. Isn't that illegal in the states? Not to mention GROSS? If I were a man I wouldn't want to buy an extremely supportive pair of underwear that some strange man's nads had been rolling around in less than 40 minutes ago. Unless I was a Christian conservative Republican protesting against gay rights???

*I fully expect Ray to leave a comment where the term "bat wing" is mentioned*

Enough already!
The Wonderjock may make YOU feel better about yourself, but it's going to freak little kids out and disappoint that chick drunk enough to finally go home with you. Keep it real, guys. Don't wear your support jock to the pool.
Unless you look like THIS guy.

Wow Liz, you're a posting fiend lately...I haven't even read them all yet. Keep it up...I'm sure they're good reads.

a pair of underwear that "lifts and separates"? That sounds very uncomfortable. My boys like to stick together.

Liz said...

Thanks, Othur. If I could just put this kind of dedication into something that paid me money...

Killer, I heard about your boys sticking together. I thought you were getting an ointment for that? ;-]

I can't read the fine print because I blog with Pinot and maybe I am getting kind of old.

I would like to point out that I am hiding in that man's briefs. It was a really interesting photo shoot.

I'm going to get one and really confuse the drunk girl I drag home.

Listen, breast size isn't ACTUALLY connected to the pleasure of intimate relations, but penis size most certainly is. Wonder Bras may be false advertising but these undies are downright vindictive! I don't know how I'd feel if my date for the evening had his boys lifted and separated for display...
