American innovation is admired all over the world, and this time they have really surpassed themselves.
News reached me today regarding Under-Ease anti-flatulence underpants. This essential item of clothing does not prevent flatulence, but permits the gas to be expelled through a small filter which counters the malodourous effects of the initial flatus.
Now I'm sure there are some perfectly understandable and serious medicinal uses for the pants, but they are potentially priceless in countless social situations too. Romantic first dates immediately sprang to mind obviously, as did business lunches and long plane journeys. The wife's Valentine's Day present is sorted out now too.
No more awkward trips to the toilet, or constant anxiety about possibly laughing and inadvertently relaxing a key abdominal muscle. Just sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge you are wearing protection.
First Microsoft, then Google, and now Under-Ease....is there anything to stop the amazing entrepreneurial dynamism of the US economy?
