Unexpected thong
I got a free thong in the post today. Really! I didn't just invent this for the sake of the pun. It was a free gift from a catalogue I've ordered Stuff from, and am ordering more Stuff from.

It is without doubt the tackiest piece of underwear I've ever owned. More tacky even than the lime-green scrap of thonginess I got from one of those free-gift-in-a-plastic-egg machines at Whitby-no-not-for-the-bloody-goth-festival-just-visiting-the-place; that sort of tackiness is forgivable at a British seaside resort. More tacky than the red frilly suspender belt (do they count as underwear?) that I bought for my St Trinians costume when I was 14-or-thereabouts, playing in the charity football match between the youth club and the pub (we tied their goalie to the goalposts with our school ties, and won; in retrospect, this was probably a formative experience for me, and I'm sure it was a far-from-unpleasant experience for the goalie).

Anyway. My free gift. It's a black thong with a bloody great red rose adorning the t-piece at the back. I'm thinking of sticking some of those little sparkly diamante things on it, and wearing it with my satin hipster trousers, so the thong is visible when I bend over to try those classy white high-heeled shoes on. I thought I might get my ears pierced a couple more times, too, so I can wear big gold hoops.

So...

Enough about your knickers, FFS, nobody's interested.

Always interesting to hear about your underwear, but big gold hoop earrings? Chav chic won't suit you at all, I'm sure.

I'd love to try it, though, just to see.

You had me right up to the satin hipsters, but the white stilettoes was a wossname too far.

Nice knickers, though.

I did?! I'm sure I'd remember that...

Show us yer Sloggis!

Sloggi knickers are *brilliant*. They're the most comfortable underwear on the planet.

Today, though, I am wearing dark green briefs with a little camo heart on the front with a gold star in the middle. Uh, because, like, you really wanted to know that.

I think I'm going through a cheap-and-tacky phase. (Buy now while stocks last.)

I was talking to OB.

Well, pardon me. That's the last time I tell you about my underwear!

But I thought you were only interested in OldBloke's undies!

She's right though. I need some new ones, actually, and I have a special code for www.figleaves.com (or whatever it's called) ...

They are, aren't they. I must drag out the Sloggi thongs and see how they fit now. I may have to buy more.

Beware of geeks' baring gifs.

Besides, nudity's not her 'thing': Jan's not a thinger, she's a thongwriter.

Um... you'll have to wait. I haven't got a camera with me. Besides, I'm at work.

It's true. But I have no way of getting the photo off the camera while at work, unless one of you has MMS on your phone.

I also don't have the thong with me! So you'd have to have a pic of today's knickers instead.

Dunno, but I haven't got email set up on the phone so it's something of a moot point. And it's a P900.

I have some which are pale silver with a butterfly on the back. I quite like them.

My favourite pants are blue, with cookie monster on, though.

If blokes can join in this discussion...

I have a pair of boxers with the logo:

I am slightly surprised; I didn't think you wore boxers!

I have two pairs of knickers with penguins on. But none with badgers, sadly. And I am not about to google for "badger pants" at work.

If any shop, anywhere on Earth, sells them it's going to be Badger (for women) in Brighton.

Of course, Brighton being the gloriously louche place that it is, they may be available in Badger (for men).

A late post, just for mischief, where hopefully no-one but you will notice it.

You mentioned undies, well so can I. I'm wearing boxers - sandwashed silk boxers from TM Lewin, who tailor my shirts.

I rustle. Very distracting.
