Sunday 160. Two Steeples



They promised that the Two Steeples underwear would never shrink but they never warned anyone that woolly undies are the itchiest clothing you could ever wear! 

That's exactly 160 characters for The Monkey Man.The photo is an old advertising panel from Blists Hill Victorian Town in Ironbridge.

When I was small, swimming gear was made of wool. It did not shrink, but stretched distressingly when wet!

Yeah...you would probably feel like those two pointed steeples were in there with you.

Ouch! A good public service message 160.

Now why would anyone, in their right mind, wear wool underwear? Can you imagine all the butt scratching going on? The sneaky hand maneuvers to get to the itchy parts best left unnamed? Oh, and the "ants in your pants dance" would be all too common place. It would be mayhem, I tell you...absolute mayhem! :o)

That was the first thought that entered my mind when I read the sign. I can just picture the wiggly dance of the woolly underpants. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160.
