Panties for Peace - Seriously

Saturday, May 31, 2008
No, no - this is a real initiative.

It's run by an organization called Lanna Action for Burma, and the purpose is to have thousands (millions?) of ladies from around the world mail their knickers to Burmese Foreign Mission and Embassies worldwide.

Seriously.

The reason for this is because the Generals who run the military junta are an extremely superstitious bunch, and they believe that touching panties or the traditional women’s sarong will eliminate their powers.

Seriously. I'm not making this up.

Lanna Action for Burma provides the addresses so that you can post your very own worn-out drawers to the Burmese Asshats at their foreign embassies.

Seriously, how does someone who believes that touching a woman's undergarments eliminates their power manage to accrue so much of it? Aside from the incredible stupidity of such a belief, it seems like all the resistance has to do is create a pantie-bomb, and the deal's over.

Christ on a crutch.

Seriously...I'm laughing my ass off.

Really. Seriously!

I wonder what would be more disturbing... skimpy naughty panties? Or worn out and frayed period panties?

Janiece Murphy said...

Michelle, I'm thinking the latter.

Seeing as how they're all imbued with your "female power" and everything.

And do they prefer clean or would, err, used ones be more effective? ;)

Michelle and Janiece, I think that you're right that the latter sort of panites would be more offensive, because usually men who believe that touching a woman's panties will eliminate their power will believe that a woman is even more unclean during her period.

Jeri, go for the used ones. If you're going to offend the asshats, go for the maximum!

Okay, not so silly belief. Just walk through the mall on any given weekend and notice the husbands and boyfriends sitting in the benches outside Victoria's Secret like stunned seals on the beach.
