Can Panties Be Snarky?

29 06 2010

A few things:

  1. Was a panty committee appointed to approve these Kotex products, or did they simply poll a random sampling of panties? (3 out of 4 panties agree…)
  2. What, exactly, did this woman find out about her panties that has her so excited? (Please don’t answer that. Seriously.)
  3. I may be the only woman who opens up a sample box of feminine hygiene products and then immediately scans the enclosed literature because she has to blog about it. I can’t decide if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

Just for you, dear readers, I took the Panty Personality Quiz. Here’s what I found out:

It's like they know me! At least, the not beige part.

*Apparently the WordPress Proofreader’s perfectly legitimate gripe with the word “Kotex” wasn’t enough. In reference to the above caption (“not beige”):

Did you mean not?

You may have used one word when you meant another. A common cause of these errors are homophones. A homophone is two words that sound alike but have different meanings and spellings. Review the definition of the word you used and the word suggested.

Review definitions:

  • knot
    a bond or tie
  • naught
    nothing
  • not
    A word used to express negation, prohibition, denial, or refusal.

Hey, WordPress proofreader? I can smell your fear.

I agree with the above comments stating that I don’t think I’ve ever been That Happy to have my period, nor will I ever be. Kind of ridiculous

Being a boy, that is.

I got “You are a pair of boy briefs,” which under the circumstances is the best I could hope for!

“What, exactly, did this woman find out about her panties that has her so excited?”

Sorry, but the answer’s obvious: she’s getting paid! What better revenge on your periods then to make money off them?

Either that or her answers were just right to score the Willy Wanka-esqe “golden panties.”

Regarding number 3–it’s a good thing. In this case though, no matter your writing skills and wit, your findings cannot possibly be spun as anyhting besides the dumbest PR campaign ever.

This is hilarious. You TOOK the quiz!! That is the best thing I’ve heard all week. : )

way to go jenny! you’re featured on the wordpress home page, AND it’s a post about panties! which, by the way, is one of my least favorite words EVER. it reminds me of a dirty old man asking what color panties you’re wearing. and now we know the answer.

yup I’d say that was pretty interesting.

I took the quiz too-and I’m hot pink panties-EVERYONE IS HOT PINK. They are not going to say you should wear grandma’s undies. And why Kotex?

Let me just say that I HATE the word “panty”. But I guess “Britches Personality” lacks the necessary alliteration.

I checked out the test! Now I know why dating is so hard–women think they have to act like the choices given. Totally a turnoff.

Funny.. I tell you when it’s my time of the month I am SOOOOOOOOO not happy.. actually they should make a comericial with a women 1. ripping off a random man’s head kind of horror movie like.. 2. a woman surrounded by tons of chocolate and holding a butcher knife with a sign that says come no closer. or 3. A woman with a heating pad laid up in bed with a bottle of booze.

That about sums it up.

During my time of the month I like to go to the grocery store and buy a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, a trashy romance novel, and a box of tampons. Then I go find the youngest, cutest male cashier in the store.

True story. I’m just that awesome.

Too lazy to find the link, but this reminds of the chick who wrote a scathing letter to the company that wrote the fortune-cookie-esque “Have a happy period” on their pads.

Also, a little bit of self-whoring. I once wrote a post about companies giving bras human female names: http://scandalousmuffin.wordpress.com/2008/10/29/contemplating-bra-names/

oh you make me laugh. I would have never thought to read the info in my fem hygiene products to blog about it. partly because I no longer need feminine hygiene products… So glad you are knot, naught, not beige. don’t get your panties in a bunch. 🙂

Great blog! reminds me of one of the big brands that says something about having a happy period…obviously male advertising staff or they’d know there is no such thing.

Also saw ads for kotex in Japan with Hello Kitty on the outside of the package which is wrong on more than a few levels.

Awesome post, but it makes me wonder: Do you do posts like this just to drive search engine traffic to your blog? I’m seeing some unfamiliar faces in the comments this morning…

This post was lucky enough to be featured on WordPress’ “Freshly Pressed” page today…would explain the extra traffic 😛

Yes, didn’t anybody explain the ‘happy’ part of being a woman???

This is funny -thanks.
Also, I like the idea of a colour called ‘naught beige’ – it would be very very pale. It could be the name of a nail varnish.

After you go to all the time of buying their product and taking their quiz, the least they could do is give you a coupon for some free panties in the color of your quiz result.

Funny!
I usually find it disturbing to see how women are always looking happy and excited when featuring in a sanitary napkin commercial…. Like they are happy to have their period.
Very disturbing.
