    Agreed.

    Somehow I suspect this 52 year old might be a "little" overweight and picked something too small of a size.

    Well I don't know, if she was that overweight the shrapnel from the "exploding" panties should have encountered her fleshy mid section before getting to her eye... unless the offending metal shard ricocheted off something, or came off after the undergarment passed her thighs. ...ugh the visuals! Sorry. :eek:

    Wel it's all just a bit too "readers' wives" for me… :eek:

    It'll be a glimpse of more than just skin you'll be getting.

    To actually go public with this she must be pretty badly injured, or have absolutely no capacity for embarassment at all...

    This story gave me not one but two mental images I could have gone all day without:

    1) A 52 year old woman in a thong.
    2) a 52 year old woman getting an eyeful of anything.

    lol , but you might want to adjust that to say 'some 52 year old woman'. i see alot of hot older women around these days. they don't make 'moms's and young grandmothers like they used to. (but you might be right...maybe a size or 3 too small and it busted).

    I've had panties explode.. but it was because of Mexican food. Not bad design.
    Can I sue the restaurant?

    Judging by your title you're packing both an X and a Y...yet you wear panties.

    I bet you're the fun part of the MR inner sanctum... :D

    Not only are they comfortable, they're sexy.

    Quite Jackson Pollock like, I must say.

    I hope her legal briefs are better than the Victoria's Secret ones.

    I heard about this over the weekend and I am just not sure how to respond to it, she has a point with the claim, but at the same time, was it truly worth national news, apparently she thought so.

    Decorative piece flew off...? Sounds scary. I bet she was trying to put them on then lost her balance and stretched the pair too far and BOING! You'll put your eye out. :p
