What Word?

What's with the word "panties," people? I was a big opponent from way back; the word always sleazy but not in a good way, filthy like an old bum or a child molester, as in "Little girl, I want you to take off your..." You get the point.
So, imagine my surprise when I found out one of my favorite Mos Def songs, a chill, sexy little number, is called, you guessed it, "The Panties."
I was all "Mos, baby, are you a pedophile?" and "Black Jack Johnson, you a dirty old bum or what cause that word is foul, more rank even than the word "moist" (except when referring to cake) if you can believe it."
I love Mos Def, so I decided to listen to "The Panties" again, let it make his case. Right now, I'm somewhere between the 3rd and the 4th listen and let me tell you, The Panties is damn hot.

I don't know what this means for the world. It's a new day.


  1. Also, TMT fully endorses "Hanky Panky" thongs (pictured above).

  2. i only recently overcame my fear of the word "butt."

  3. For some reason, the phrase "granny panties" alleviates the creepiness of the word. Strange. You'd think it would do the opposite.
