The post today was supposed to be about Broccoli Potato Cheese Soup, but when this came out of the laundry, I felt obligated to share it with you.

Underwear.  My kids always liked the underwear joke when they were younger.

Kids:  Hey, Mom!  What’s that under there?

Me:  Under where?

Kids:  Ha Ha.  I made you say underwear!

This is what I felt obligated to share – MacGyver’s underwear.  Don’t worry – it’s all clean laundry.  And no, this is not an advertisement for a new, amazing weight loss product.

Both pairs of underwear are the same brand and the exact, same size.  The larger-looking pair in the background was just removed from the Wicked Oasis Washer.  It twists clothes so that they look like they were caught in the vortex of a tornado and stretches or rips them in the process, depending on the item of clothing that gets caught.  Hanes®, advertised in the 50s as the “Nothing beats a Hanes fig leaf brief,” now gets my seal of approval, as this pair of underwear survived the super-twisting and being stretched completely out of shape and to twice its normal size without any rips or tears.  Go Hanes!

And just so you don’t think I am inventing silly stories to post, here is a photo of the labels of the two pairs so you can see that they are the same brand, same size.

So, while you are doing your Saturday laundry, be thankful that your washer is working and that your clothes will not be entering the vortex of certain clothing death that is my Kenmore Elite Oasis Washer.

Enjoy your weekend – even the part when you’re doing the laundry.  Remember, whatever you’re doing today, at least you don’t have to take your laundry down to the stream and scrub it on a rock.


P.S.  If you see MacGyver, please don’t tell him I posted pictures of his underwear.  The washer has already done it literally, but I don’t want him to get his “knickers in a twist” figuratively, too!
