A THORN IN THE FLESH?


Spotted in a shop window yesterday:  these underpants with their very Sicilian fico d'India or prickly pear motif.  Fico also means "cool".  I'll leave the "prickly" jokes to all of you.

Brilliant!! Seems to be this mini-culture of novelty underwear in Italy, does make me laugh!

Brilliant! That must be the funniest I've seen! I wonder if anyone would wear them.

I don't doubt it, WW! Hi, Nerys. Yes, it cheers me up. Hi, Dragonstar. I think WW may have the answer! It brightened my day, LindyLouMac. Hi, Rosaria. I'm always on the look-out! Glad you like them, Lucia.

i've got a pet cactus by the way. the SWINES in the florists IMPALED him with FAKE SCARLET FLOWERS ON TOOTHPICKS so the poor thing is in cactus hospital recovering from 16 extractions. and i thought it was bad when my dentist gave me ONE. you could park a truck where that missing tooth had been!

I love them! The only way I see fun underwear anymore is in store windows!
