The Daily Ping

There were rumors of a Ping book, but those were started on the internet.

Okay, time to fess up (no better time than the weekend): did you have a pair of Underoos as a kid?

I did. But I confess that I can’t remember which superhero and/or pop culture icon graced my bottom. -pm

How about we all start a petition to convence them to make cartoon character underwear for adults.

I just wrote Fruit of the Loom and gave them a list from Star Trek and Star Wars to Nightmare Before Christmas and Invader Zim….and not just for kids…..
I also mentioned who their target customer base should be, like the “alternative” kids and Retro-people and pretty much ANYONE who loves big budget superhero action fliks…which is….oh,,,just about EVERYONE!!!!

Write them NOW and show your support to let them know that they could make even MORE money if they just get a clue!!!
—-that should appeal to their corporate way of thinking…..don’t forget your list, that way we could have a HUGE selection, even the girls should get an equal amount this time around…….write your local underwear representative!!!

Serveral years ago Fruit of the Loom produced a beta run of adult underoos but were not able to find a retailer to sell the line and dropped the idea. However, various companies have entered the market and sell Adult Underoos (not the same title but same idea) after Fruit of the Loom failed to market the idea.

Even Hanes has entered the market by making larger sizes of their Underoos (ShowToons) with Ninja Turtles, Spiderman and Hulk. They also have generic designs available for older kids.

Still have not seen a major player like Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, Jockey, BVD and so forth enter the market for adults. I guess they think every adult male wears boxers…

Here are a few links to media content, including some new articles:

i never got to wear underoos. My dad always got us tidy whities. If I am going to wear a brief i want it to be colored or have characters on them. all my boxers are fassion ones and most of them have crtoon or comic book caracters on them. Since i am a big sports nut and an expert in comics i would love to find some. My wife thinks i am going through my second childhood, but so what. I never had my first. She wants me to wear underoos, because she thinks i look sexy in my comic boxers. the only thing we could find is Ginch Gonch, However they are very expensive. I don’t wear them offten. if there were a company out there willing to compete I think they would make a killing!!!

My son is 24 and would love to wear his underoos again! Has anyone heard if they are making them in adult sizes yet?

I just wrote Fruit of the Loom and requested that they come out with adult underoos. I would love a pair and my boyfriend would love them too.

I loved Spider-Woman so, it took some time but I did convince my mother to go into the girls section and buy me some so I retired my Spider-man set.

Never had em as a kid, though when I saw them as a teenager, I wanted Ninja Turtle ones. Sadly, the biggest ones were too small for me.

You would think that in a time where there are cartoon boxers and even cartoon boxer briefs, that they would just go full circle and put out cartoon briefs. Id rock them for sure!

I LOVED underoors. I also would still wear them if they were available. Ginch Gonch are too expensive. My underoos were the Michelin TIRE man. He left skidmarks and tire tracks all over the seat of my underoos!

What is this then?
