Never Too Old for Underoos
January 2, 2009

I’ll bet I’m not the only one with fond memories of Underoos. I can’t quite recall which specific sets I had save for this photo of my brother, sister and I decked out for Halloween in Underoo enabled costumes. No, my sister is Wonder Woman. I’m Superman.

Anyway, my mom has never accepted that I’ve grown up (probably because I haven’t given her any reason to) and she still likes to "support my hobby" when she gets me a gift. Its not easy to buy for us collectors but she really nailed it with these suckers . . . 

Even if they were still making Underoos I’m sure I’d have trouble finding my size. But leave it to mom to find these fantastic pajama bottoms: 


They immediately reminded me of the superhero undergarments I loved as a kid. Now, I know what you’re thinking: "Pajamas? Hell, I’d wear those to work!" The thought crossed my mind.  I mean, in the immortal words of Rex Kwon Do: "Do you think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I’m wearin’ these badboys?"

Wait folks, there’s more. Last summer I posted a quick blog about some of my favorite geek tee shirts. Well I was completely bowled over when I laid eyes on this next gift. Its was one of those things that I just had to stare at in disbelief for a minute because it was so perfect. As you may have assumed, the cantina scene from Star Wars is bedrock for me. In fact, since I’ve been surfing the webbernet my online moniker has been CantinaDan. Needless-to-say this "Cantina Band" tee shirt has rocketed to number one on my favorites list.


High five, ma!
