Comment Elsewhere: underwear economics

In response to the news that underwear sales are down, I wrote
Actually, with population growth slowing, the steady sales of underwear were actually based on inflated expectations and overconsumption; the dip is a correction to a more appropriate level given the backlog of product in people's drawers. It's an underwear bubble, and it's been popped.

And I did my best to make that sound normal, not obscene, and I'm pretty sure I failed.

To be fair, I didn't try all that hard....

At the risk of sounding obscene myself, I salute you with my frilly panties.

I snorted out loud when I read this post. Thank you.
