Memo to Makers of Little Boy's Underpants

Dear Sir/Madam:

I am about to give you a bit of information that will make your product far more valuable so please take note - and if you'd like to send me a little something for this advice, please contact me below.

If you make underpants for little boys that have imagery on them - such as WALL-E, Buzz Lightyear, Handy Manny, Spiderman, etc. -- DO NOT put the big power image on the back. Yes, a three year old is much more excited to wear a pair of drawers that have his favorite characters on them, and the reason is because he wants to SEE the damn picture. When it's on the ass he can't do that! And as Super G told me this morning, "I don't want to sit on Spiderman, it's just not nice!"

So, my son goes into the world every day wearing his Character Panties BACKWARDS! yes, the pee pee flap is in the back and if you challenge him on this, he will tear your head off. I'm certain my son is not the only one who insists on facing the ridicul and discomfort of backwards briefs.

I'm happy to sport the cash to pay the licensing fees involved in purchasing items with characters on them, and if the power image was covering the jewels, not the crack, I'd be far more willing to fork over a few more dead presidents for them.
