Underwear, that's right

Last weekend I was dress shopping. Not me, MB. I was just waiting for the movie to start. I noticed the difference between how men's and women's underwear is sold. In particular I'm referencing the underwear piles that women are willing to dig through. They are usually just large bins full of tangled underwear. The idea of pull out something to wear from one of those giant piles gives me the willies. However, it looked almost like it was some kind of sport. While I was waiting in the store three women were digging through the piles with great glee. Each time they found a piece that met their requirements they would hold it up like they had just scored some type of victory. They would then put it aside in their pile to keep track of there winnings.

I can't image men doing this. If it's not boxed or shrink wrapped most men wouldn't even look at it. The only exception is when hangers are used for novelty prints but even then they are arranged and separated.

One wonders what kind of trophy one would get for such a sport? I envision a giant gold plated pair of drawrs worn by a dime store of those mannequins whose eyes follow you around the room making you think they are real...except they're's only a mannequin...a scary, scary mannequin...what kind of freaky trophy is that anyway!?
