Fashionable People, Questionable Things. | Favourite Friday – February 12 Edition: Ally hates the word panties | Fashionable People, Questionable Things.

AllyG: Can we talk about something? Can we talk about the word, “panty” or the plural usage, “panties”? HOLY THE EFF. American Apparel has a new campaign promoting what they call…hold on, let me grab my barf basin…”pantytime”.

Now, I own American Apparel underwear. Yes, UNDERWEAR. I’m a matchy-matchy person , so I like that their briefs match the tops and don’t strangle me with underwire. However, I am going to have to refrain from further purchases until they remove all reference to a “time for panties”.  GAWD, that word is SO offensive. Am I off on this? Can you seriously say “panty” without spewing vomit from your face? Let’s move on, I’m getting all worked up again.

However, this has me thinking. Do readers want us to do some research on what’s hot in bloomers? Comment and let us know. It won’t be pornerific or anything [L-a: or should that be pornorific?? We don’t know!]. We’ll bring the klass!

L-A: So Ally was going to give you some Pussycat Dolls for your crappy pop video, but she made the ultimate sacrifice and let me use my crappy video.  Or, you could also say that I totally one-upped her thanks to regular reader M.Dubs (who never comments – she just emails me) who pointed me in the direction of this gem:

I am partly grateful, partly horrified.  What is the best thing about that video?

  1. It is almost five minutes of absolute ridiculous pantyface cheese?
  2. Burberry pajama pants?
  3. Degrassi’s Jimmy Brooks? (Sorry Drake, I just can’t move on from your Degrassi days).
  4. the lyrics: “call me Mr. Flinstone, I can make your bed rock”?
  5. All of the above.

So much fromage in the video it kills me. It’s gone from awful to awesome and back to awful.

Now for my favourite thing this week. I’m pretty sure it’s Kell on Earth.

“If you have to cry, go outside”. Best advice ever. I don’t know about you, but I’ve cried on the job before and it’s always better if you cry outside. I wish someone told me that before I cried in front of my mean boss in Banff.  And don’t even try to say something about crying at work being a girl thing or else I’ll go all Women’s Studies on your essentialist ass.

Now, enjoy your weekend.

AllyG: Oooh! I love this song! It’s on my ipod! And I quote, “She Got That Good Good,
She Michael Jackson Bad, I’m Attracted To Her, For Her Attractive Ass”
Do I even need to say it? Swoooooooooooooooooooon.

    I have been trying to bring back “underpants” for years.

    It rhymes with “thunderpants”! And “plunderpants”! And “wonderpants”!

    I COULD GO ON.

    I LOVE all of this. That video is amazing. As is Kelly Cutrone. I need to find somewhere to watch this online (that is accessible from Canada) stat.

  3. Panties/Panty are fine with me. Ditto gitch, gonch and underoos.

    The word ‘Slacks’, however, makes my skin crawl.
