The Comment Awards Want to Take You Underwear Shopping

Happy Underwear Week, buttons! I hope you’re celebrating in the grand tradition of Underwear Week by reading this on your couch in some boyshorts while downing some silk panties. What, you don’t have cute underroos fit for couch lounging and only have Simpler Times in the fridge? That’s fine because Hansen, the craftiest crafter in the land, will teach you how to make some! (You’re on your own with the liquor, sorry.) That’s right, this week we’ve got thong tha thong thong thongs, edible underwearwords from the Lingerie Lesbian and a gallery of 100 girls without pants.

To be fair, the above the waist offerings are also pretty great — recipes for eggplant fries and zucchini bread, Dina’s confessions of a synchronized swimmer and Carmen’s guide to Women’s History Month — but judging by this week’s comment stars, underwear week has left us all hot and bothered, even in the winter!
