After a couple of sobering posts, it seems like the right time to change things up a bit and showcase a little humor about intimate apparel. Â What follows is an eclectic mix of videos highlighting the lighter sides of bras, panties, and shapewear.
The first video features local traffic reporter for WXII news (Greensboro-High Point-Winston-Salem, North Carolina), Jennie Stencel, âcommentingâ on a previous report about a new, Japanese specialty bra.Â Though proving she can conserve pocket space with the best of them, Ms. Stencel likely suffers more discomfort from the jacks than she would have from the chopsticks.
The second video is a short clip from The Simpsons. Watch as Comic Book Guy does a masterful impersonation of William Shatner with a little help from a corset.
The third video shows a couple of outtakes from two of the most popular game shows in television history, Family Feud and The Price Is Right.Â Leave it to Richard Dawson and Bob Barker to make the most of a couple of undergarment malfunctions.
The fourth video is a clip from the 2008 French Open.Â Professional womenâs tennis player, Jelena Jankovic, shows that locker rooms can be somewhat overrated.
The next video is for the do-it-yourselfer and comes all the way from Paraguay.Â Ever find yourself short of a sports bra?Â No need to panic.Â Just grab a scissors and raid your husbandâs or boyfriendâs underwear drawer.
The final two clips tell short tales about lingerie shops.Â The first one, from Whose Line Is It Anyway?, demonstrates that one never knows where a piece of improvisational comedy will end up.
The second oneâs a short skit from Monty Pythonâs Flying Circus.Â John Cleeseâs character obviously never listened to Willie Sutton, choosing instead to âadopt, adapt, and improve.â
