My friend George from the godless minds-eye meatloaf mindscapes of the Golden State of Californication sent me this:
Dear Miss Manners:
I am an average 14-year-old girl who has a problem. My mom won't let me wear thong underwear, and it is the kind I want to wear. My friends make fun of me for not wearing that type. I was wondering if you could help me convince my mom and tell her it is all right to wear them. Gentle Reader:
Of all the advice columnists in the world, you chose Miss Manners as the most likely one to support the cause of thong underwear? And you wonder why your mother questions your judgment?
I must agree with Miss Manners. 14 years old is far too young to be wearing thong underwear. But you are never to young for Happy Underpants!
