TMI: The Underwear Meme

I have been caught by the Too Much Information: The Underwear Meme, thanks to Margo at Urban Psychopomp.

This may be pornography, I can't tell.
So now I get to answer all these strange questions about underwear! I’d like you to imagine that I’m in a dark room, and someone from the secret police has just shone a spotlight right into my face. It's okay, I can tough out even the hardest questions, like:
Vot do you call your drawers?
What do you call your drawers?

Underpants. Why, what have you heard?

Do you have any commonly used nicknames for them?

Undies. Or, given that I’m Australian, I may occasionally use the rhyming slang "grundies".

Reg Grundy was a television producer. Almost every show produced in Australia from 1960 - 1985 ended with the voiceover “This has been a Grundy Production". You kind of had to be there.

Have you ever had that supposedly common dream of being in a crowded place in only your bloomers?

Not in the anxiety-inducing way you’re thinking. I might even wake up smiling.

What is the worst thing you can think of to make long johns out of?

Several short johns stapled together. It's just not the same.

If you were a pair of small clothes, what color would you be, and WHY?

I would be green. With polka dots. And just because.

Have you ever thrown your bloomers at a rock star or other celebrity? If so, which one(s)? If not, which one(s) WOULD you throw your bloomers at, given the opportunity?

No. Undies are expensive. I’m not made of money. My god, I just paid over a hundred bucks for concert tickets, and it costs like $50 for crappy t-shirts, and can you believe I just stood in line for half an hour just to get charged $10 for a can of bourbon and non-branded cola? These people have already got the shirt off my back. They’re not getting my undies as well.

Actually, I don’t think I would ever throw my undies at a celebrity. My hotel room key maybe -- but what the hell would they want with my undies?

You’re out of clean drawers. What do you do?

Stay in bed in my pyjamas. It’s the solution to all life’s problems.
Eventually someone will call to see how I am. When they do, I will ask them to bring me new undies.

Are you old enough to remember Underoos? If so, did you have any? Which ones?

I have never heard of Underoos. Are they spy kangaroos? If not, why not?

If you could have any message printed on your long johns, what would it be?

Abandon all hope ye who enter here…

(You know, I was going to rethink that, but then I thought, “No, go with your first instinct.” Also, once I’d thought of that I couldn’t think of anything better.)

How many bloggers does it take to put small clothes on a goat?

I suspect it would take as many as we could find, and then some. Goats are not renowned for their compliant natures.
Now, since I'm late to the underwear meme, I can't be sure if these bloggers have done this yet. But, if they haven't, maybe they will!
