"WTF" of the day: Abstinence thong

A rather revealing pair of underwear carries the slogan: "Earn your right to wear white"

What's that old saying -- fighting for peace is like fucking for virginity? Well, how about ass wagging for virginity?

Imagine this: In the heat of a truly epic make-out session, you peel off clothes until you're down to a thong. But how to make sure that special someone understands the panties aren't coming off until your wedding night? If this is your dilemma, an abstinence thong bearing the slogan "Earn your right to wear white" may be just the answer to your prayers (so to speak).

As head-scratchingly delightful as this product is, its ad copy may be even more fantastic. Take it away, Daily Christian: "Panty-minimalists love our casual thong that covers sweet spots without covering your assets; putting an end to panty-lines. This under-goodie is 'outta sight' in low-rise pants. Toss these message panties onstage at your favorite rock star or share a surprise message with someone special ... later."

I could go on forever about these (not to mention the "Jesus Freak" and "I (Heart) Jesus" thongs that CaféPress notes are also popular), but I think the neologism "under-goodie" says it all.
