    Thumbs down Boxers or Briefs?

    It's hard to believe that my dept will soon be issuing gaunch. I guess the city was concerned that to many calender boys were strutting around the dorm in "banana hammocks"? As much as i like free stuff, they decided are "twig and berries",would be best served wearing boxers. I dont know about you, but boxer shorts give me as much support for the "twins",as a mini skirt would. (not that i would know). Things have sure changed since i started 25 yrs. ago. I remember this one studly fellow who would hang his bunker pants and boots around his morning "wood", on his way to the shower. For me , a wet towel was my limit.

    Two questions:
    1. Was his name "Dirk Diggler"?
    2. Why were you looking?

    Are the boxers red, safety green, or safety yellow?

    When I was Assistant Chief I once wore a department issued T-Shirt that had "Asst. Chief" on the left chest over the department logo. When I wore my white uniform shirt, the piece of material that reinforces the badge holes whould block out the "T. " and show the world that I was indeed the *** Chief.

    I soon changed to plain white t-shirts under my uniform shirt.

    Come one, surely I'm not the first one to get a laugh out of the irony that his nickname was "Big Willie." Or am I the first that couldn't resist the urge to point it out.

    I just hate to point this out, but "big willie" was my kicker,"will knotts" was the punch line. You may not be familiar with those pesky cling ons being a lady. I'd put a happy face here,but don't know how to.
