You see I have had it all wrong. I always thought that it meant that they liked you when they took their panties off.

Honey I realize you are upset with me but there is a new way that you can show your anger. No really, all the girls are doing it this way now.

I will report back tomorrow morning. Wish me luck.

I'm told that in an infinite universe, especially if mirrored by an infinite number of other universes, all possibilities exist somewhere. So I'm rather disappointed to have ended up in the one where lobbing your dirty underwear at someone has managed to be taken as a compliment. Ew.

Coming soon to a Japanese Burmese vending machine near you: Activist Panties! Strike fear into the hearts of you enemies with Hello Kitty patterns or Wild Animal prints!

Seriously now, an activist reads something on wikipedia about a foreign culture and thinks they've discovered their enemies' kryptonite.

And when the members of the military junta quickly get over their aversion and these all wind up on eBay...

This is so cool; oh the weakness which comes from touching a woman's panties. Would you like a haircut?

This is exactly why Japan has never been involved in international conflict.

They believe that touching a woman's pants or sarong will make them lose their strength

What a bunch of pussies.

I'm going to wipe some MRSA-infected pus in my panties and mail them to the Burmese army. Wish me luck!
