Positively Awful

Regular readers will know how we love to mock anything we deem ridiculous; to date our attentions have been focused on Asia (yes, we’re looking at *you*, Japanese disposable underwear). So you can imagine our joy when we stumbled across a product which not only set our mockery levels soaring, but came from the good old US of A.

    1. You are totally right that it was a bunch of men sitting around a conference table who decided that what would REALLY sell those lady diapers was printing them with nonsense happy thoughts. “And we’ll print it in pink! Women love that!” And, truth be told, they were right. Because I bought a year’s supply of those damn things this summer, lest I should hit December in Singapore and find myself needing a little inspiration from my own underwear.
