Roughly paraphrasing the results from yesterday’s inquiry about underwear humor: underwear in its proper context is not funny, underwear out of its proper context (i.e. on someone’s head, hanging from a tree, etc.) is funny, discussing underwear is funny, the word “panties” is somewhat naughty, the word “underpants” is always funny, Spanish underwear (calzones) is funny, but only in Italy, and the words “spigot” and “doily” are also funny.
