Now, which English is that? I thought I understood the American version as well as the Queen's but this headline reads like Klingon....

That's why I wear black latex underwear. Excellent support!

Out go chaps' boiled-grey grundies; and in come the seamless briefs already familiar to women to eliminate the VPL, or visible pants line. Good for tight suit trousers.


Tight suit trousers. mmmmmmmmm

FTFA: M&S insists that its male customers' complaints about underpants are at a "five-year low".

A few thoughts...

1. I don't know that I've ever complained about my underpants except when subby's sister comes around they seem awfully tight (the underpants, not subby's sister). Certainly not the manufacturer's fault.

2. Overheard at M&S: "This is the reason I got into engineering, so I could track underwear complaints and perform failure analysis? Blimey, I'm off to the pub!"

3. My only other complaint is that they are not self cleaning, save for the rotation/inside-out factor which only gets you so far.

FTFA's comments: Paul Page, London - "I don't buy my underwear here - the styles are usually too baggy. I like the waistband to show over my jeans and really, you don't want the waistband saying Marks and Spencer. However, my teenage sons wear M&S pants - the oldest because he's a student and they're quite cheap, the youngest because that's what his mother buys for him."

You're kids hate you, Paul. Just thought you should know that. They're tired of their classmates picking on them because their father is a freakish relic of the fashion world

/what kind of guy (who's old enough to have teenage kids) wears his underpants so that the elastic waistband is visible over the top of his jeans

Lady M : Pardon?

Reg : One on't cross beams gone owt askew on treddle.

Lady M : I don't understand what you're saying.

Reg : (slightly irritatedly and with exaggeratedly clear accent) One of the cross beams has gone out of skew on the treadle.

Lady M : Well, what on earth does that mean?

Reg : I don't know! - Mr. Wentworth just told me to come in here and say that there was trouble at the mill, that's all - I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition!

Paxman's great.. good on him for farking complaining about something that pissed him off - unfortunately, not something we as a nation do often enough..

i'll wager that some nights howard still wakes up in a cold sweat, desperately trying to escape from his unconscious state, where paxman and his questions still haunt him

I was so disappointed when I found out Paxman was actually killing time during this incident while waiting for the VT operators to get things cued up properly.
Still, we could all do with more persistence on the part of reporters interviewing politicians.

/Paxman f-ing rocks.

Singin' 'round the campfire...all together now!

Do your balls hang low? Do they swing to and fro?
Can you tie 'em in a knot? Can you tie 'em in a bow?
Can you throw 'em o'er your shoulder like a Continental soldier?
Can you do the double shuffle when your balls hang low?

Paxman rules! I love the way he just doesn't let the politicians talk out the clock.

\would happily help adjust his gusset
\\agree M&S is fast becoming BHS-like
\\\think Michael Howard DOES have something of the night about him
