video: do commandos not wear pants?!

I was chatting with Kris earlier about the laundry room incident, actually more than a few friends chimed in about laundry room rules and the general consensus was that if you leave your stuff unattended, it’s gonna get moved for you. But while talking to Kris I guessed that had I not been able to get a machine or had the womens’ argument been more active that I might have had to go commando for a day or two. Not that there’s anything wrong with that around the house, but definitely not to the office!

It reminded me of Ricky Gervais’ latest live show where he was wondering about the origin of the phrase and how practical it actually is. Before this bit, he was talking about going to the doctor for a physical, having to give a urine sample and having an unfortunately large visible spot of wetness appear on his boxer shorts afterwards:

I suspect there’s a little disconnect between the US and UK definitions of pants here, so his mime is a bit odd. But as today seemed to be the day regarding laundry and lack thereof, this definitely fit. 😈

    Yes, in the UK “pants” means “underwear”. As a transplanted USan, I was always getting into a bit of verbal trouble when I talked about my trousers as “pants”.

    @Chris: That’s what threw me a bit. Both the joke and mime are very funny, but he seems to wobble back and forth between implying both no trousers and no underwear. All while, once again, setting back our confidence in his heterosexuality.
