11 million pounds..  Are those full or empty undies?

That number seems kind of high.. At least for me.  I wear my shorts until they're mere wisps of fabric held together by dryer lint.

There are already companies using the trade name Parade, so these folks should expect a whole stack of C&D demand letters shortly.

Every man woman and child would need to be throwing out a pound of undies every month.  8-10 pairs.  Is it like that villain in Superman 3 who never had to wear the same pair of socks twice, except it's the whole country doing it?

Have you been to Wisconsin? Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Pacific with less fabric than comprises a single pair of Badger State briefs.

What? I have underwear old enough to vote.

It was either yesterday or the day before that I took a pair of scissors to an old pair of underwear. They will serve as rags until I throw them out. This will spare a few paper towels at the very least.

All my undies are cotton anyway.

I've been to some concerts that easily had 11 million pounds of underwear thrown at the stage.

I already unload my (washed) dead underwear and other no-longer-viable textiles on USAgain.

So Subby's mom and two friends managed to get within throwing distance of the stage?
