Wait a second.  Is this one of those anti-funny Fark things where people pretend something perfectly benign is actually bizarre and scandalous?  If not, then maybe someone would care to enlighten me.  If you're not supposed to clean the kitchen with your underwear, then what are you supposed to clean it with?  Well?  I'm waiting.

Were said underpants being worn at the time?

Sixty businesses around Bristol and as far away as west Wales, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire were being served by his company, Hamza Poultry.

More like "Hazmat Poultry".

You're supposed to use someone else's underwear.

/duh

Come on, Subby. Who among us wear underpants? Exactly.

Great, I probably ate at places that used this guy when I was in Swindon and Bath.

There's no such thing as bad publi- you know never mind this is bad publicity.

As long and he didn't take them off his body and start cleaning with them, I don't see a problem. If they were washed they're as clean as any dish rag when you pull them out of the laundry. I think most people wash their whites together, which means underwear and dish rags would be in the same load anyway.

Ahh, Bristol. Home of the infamous stool scale. That's fitting. Hopefully not too many people are experiencing sixes and sevens over there due to this...

The only thing that is NOT sick about the article is the underpants. They're obviously clean and new, as they still have the price tags on them. Everything else was disgusting.

well. i now know the difference between a ton and a tonne

I use my old underpants as rags, after a decent bleaching. What is the problem exactly?

Came here to say the same thing. The pants were new as far as I can tell (unless he wore them beforehand without taking the tags off).

Why no prison sentence?

Underwear is just the attention grabber, read the article, it's worth it, not that long.

Toilets but no washing facilities, using his suppliers boxes(and therefore his health cert, because he would have never gotten his own) to ship out his product, which can contaminate meat.  They were originally inspected because someone found wire in their meat and it was traced back to them.

Look, for anyone who grew up pre-1980 this is a common practice.  Back in the day, underpants were made out of sturdy farking cotton fiber and when they got old, you used them as rags for the jobs when you couldn't re-use a regular towel.  Staining wood, removing mildew, smearing grease on a ball joint - anything of that nature was done with used tighty whiteys.  You washed them good and then they were rags.

You'd think with the big push for recycling people wouldn't have a problem with this.

My grandma used to use old cloth diapers as dust rags so I'm really getting a kick out of this story.  They'd last been used as diapers nearly 20 years before I was born but it still seemed nasty.  All those years later, the depression era influence was still keeping her from spending $0.99 for a new bundle of dust rags.

If they've been thoroughly bleached, what's the problem?

Four tonnes of chicken and beef found at the premises were later destroyed, in what the bobbies described as the best english barbecue of all time.

//minor correction for their article..

So, I'm a little confused. Can I still use restaurants to clean my underwear, or what?

Yes, the stool scale is brilliant. It's great for when you want to describe your poops to your friends, but you don't want to text them pics.

Go ahead and laugh all you want but someone somewhere in Japan is making a good living off of this.

Well I guess now we know how the Underpants Gnomes are making their profit.

Step 1. Collect Underpants
Step 2. Sell underpants to disreputable meat processor for tax free returns.
Step 3. Profit

Those Underpants Gnomes played some long term profit risks.
