    NOTE: If you are female and cute, please send your "I Perl" thong action shots to You could win the grand prize of being included in the monkpics featured in the upper-right-hand corner!

      And... if you get enough responses there should be another poll voting for the cutest.

      Any in black? I don't use white underwear.

        Looks like cafepress only offers white thongs, sorry. Wish I could help! For that matter, they only offer women's t-shirts in white or pink. (I suspect this is because printing dark colours on a white background is a lot easier to do then printing light colours on a dark background.)

      What if you are male and cute?
        (I --'d you, but just as a joke. Nothing personal. :-)

    Marge: He's going to need, uh... you know, protection.
    Guy: Sure... one helmet coming up.
    Marge: I was thinking more of... protection... down there (points down).
    Guy: Oh, why didn't you say so? Kneepads. You got it.
    Marge: (very nervous laugh) I'm talking about his (muffling) personal area.
    Guy: Ah ha. Say no more. I read you loud and clear. The old shoulderpads.
    Marge: Look... I wanna cup.
    Guy: Cup? Could you spell that?
    Marge: C-U-P. I wanna C-U... oh my God!

      Bart: There's your answer fish-bulb.

    No boxer briefs huh?
      I got down voted for boxer briefs?! Wow. I guess someone really has a problem with them. I find that extremely funny :). The coverage of a boxer with the support of a brief, what's not to like?

      Jeez, even my underwear gets down voted. Tough crowd.

        I was also looking for boxer briefs and couldn't find them so I just went with boxers (on the poll, not in the store). Boxer briefs are the greatest innovation in men's underwear since the "commando" option. In case someone downvoted you because they don't know what they are: Boxer briefs are like boxers, only tighter and more elastic-y. Advantages over boxers include:
        • you can put your pants on without having to pull your underwear back down around your legs
        • if you're wearing shorts, the wind won't blow up them and freeze you
        • they don't have that big open hole in the front that makes it embarrassing to take your pants off when the doctor is trying to look at your leg
        • my wife likes them better
        The last reason is why I started wearing them in the first place. They were a Christmas gift from my wife, and I liked them so much that I bought more. It's not like guys have that many underwear options, so it's nice to find something new that actually works.
        Aren't trunks boxer briefs? I think someone must despair at you not knowing all the terminology for your preferred underwear.

        Either that or it's just random voting.

        I'm apalled that the trunks category wasn't split into trunks with a button fly, and trunks without. I have downvoted the whole world in protest.
        At first I was a little bewildered as to what to choose, but I recently bought some "boxer briefs" that were labeled "trunks" so that's what I chose. I think they are the same thing, but I don't really keep up with underwear terms..
      :-( It's all I where, when I wear anything at all!

      Boxer briefs are quite close to "hipsters", the latter's legs being a little shorter.

    I prefer to go 'regimental.'

    Overheard at a Scottish dance:

    She: What do you wear under your kilt?

    He: If you're a brazen enough lass to ask, I'm brazen enough to show ya.

    Eek! Next year's Linuxbierwanderung is going to be in Scotland, and the idea of be-kilted geeks is just NASTY.
        If a node makes me laugh and makes me go "eeuuww", should I ++ or -- it?

    Wow...I don't believe that whom ever thought this one up had the answer that I would be looking for. Straight up "garments". Thanx for covering my butt!

    I wonder how many others also had to google for fundoshi, no-one at my office in South Africa knew what is was.

    Hohum, can't vote on this one, since a vital choice is missing.. "Nothing"! (Or the slightly more boring "Something else")..


      They've got you covered.

      go commando = Nothing

        And a little advice for the men: if you have never gone commando before and decide to do so, don't be in too big a hurry when you zip up your Levi's. I believe this was covered in the excellent documentary Something about Mary, for those who need more information.

    What better way is there to stay close to programming than to have an I ♥ Perl thong. It's a nice fit and an inspiration; now it can be for you too!!!!

      My Site in Progress

      Not bad but try to test it in Opera - you'll be surprised ;)

      Michael Stepanov aka nite_man

      It's only my opinion and it doesn't have pretensions of absoluteness!

        Thank you, I knew already. The site is undergoing a makeover as we speak. Some of the pages I put up are from when I started as a wee beginner to Web design. It would seem my "pack-rat" nature extends to foolish sentimentalism for my first projects in Web design. They will be replaced, sooner or later, however. Thus, is a long and lonely road of "progress".

        IMHO, Opera sucks arse, and I wouldn't put it on my worst enemy's computer. However, I am continually trying to cope w/ its horrible interpretation of CSS.

        Thanks again!

    Using "I ♥ Perl" thong as wear of Perl developers doubles a company income and jaundices other non Perl programmers :))
