Grampy’s Burlap Underwear

♫ When your life is without care
And when your nether’s without hair;
To follow laws, you can’t be bare,
So try our burlap underwear.

Grampy’s Burlap Underwear!
Grampy’s Burlap Underwear!
You’ll want to swear
If you’ll but dare
To wear
Ol’ Grampy’s Underwear! ♫

      I literally cannot imagine how uncomfortable they would be!

    Cover that birthday suit
    With Grampy’s recycled jute,
    Keep your bashful modesty protected-
    But of course
    It’s woven coarse-
    Such rashness is to be expected.

    They have an Indian version. I believe it’s a saffron loincloth. But I found the colour more restrictive than the freedom of having air breathe on my nether with a lot of hair and so, I went bare.

        Lol loincloths are worn in India all the time. In the South, you’ll find men of the older generation wearing just that without a shirt. Saffron is the colour of the Hindutva extremists and the fascists. I could settle for a white loincloth, but what the hell, let’s go bare!

          True. Now that you mention it, I’ve seen that in pictures. I wrote a report on India in the sixth grade. 🙂

      I originally tried to rhyme with “poison ivy….”

        Nah, Grampa’s burlap underwear is better anyway.

          It had a nice ring to it, though: Poison Ivy Panties

          There’s just no subtlety there, is the problem.

        I’m not often taken in by advertising, even when it’s accompanied by a catchy tune. I’ve learned to to be a critical reader. 😂

    I think burlap underwear sounds like the worst. You can’t possibly sell it to me.

      That may be why Europeans were so eager for The Silk Road.
