Backwards underwear boy

Note to all designers of three-year-old boys’ underwear. Since you obviously understand the deep desire a male toddler has to wrap his private parts in bright red race cars and semis and fire trucks, please refrain from putting those sexy machines on the rear of the underwear with nothing but a boring logo on the front. While this may seem practical because of the penis-pocket-seams that would interrupt a large car picture on the front, in fact it is quite frustrating to the young male who can’t look down and see that mesmerizing picture as he dresses himself or takes a bathroom break or runs around the house pantless.

For several days now Will has been wearing his underwear backwards. On occasion, he not only puts them on backwards but also puts them over his pants for continued truck-and-car viewing pleasure.


So, next time, Mr. Briefs Manufacturer, let’s get those big vehicles front and center. And offer some matching pants to boot.

You know it's never too early to start designing some retro-spaceage toddler briefs for young Cliff. And yes, put that rocket, front and center. If some pesky adult suggests it's phallic, at least every kid in town will know it's just plain "cool" (Will's adjective of choice for all his car-and-truck underwear).
