Drop Gusset Rotatopants

I just discovered that I'd spent my morning wearing my undercrackers back to front.

If the gusset of my underpants had been detachable at the front (or back) and reatachable by means of a button on velcro or similar, then I wouldn't have had to completly undress my lower half when switching my scants back round. Consequently, I wouldn't have become tangled up in my trousers and fallen over in the toilet cubicle, hitting my head on the seat.

       i'd suggest velcro seamed trousers also, but as any stripper knows these are well baked.

       Calum, have you considered getting your nether regions customised so that they can adapt to a situation such as the one described above? While it may require a significant initial outlay, it would save you forking out for pricey drop-gussetted drawers for the next 6 decades or so. After 6 decades you could just get a drip attached, thus rendering pants of any stylee redundant.

       buttons on your underpants indeed!

       [calum] I thought kilts were the go in your part of the world, and that underpants are for the lassies only.   

       Woof

       Can't wear a kilt when dealing with clients. Makes you look eccentric. No one wants to hire a bamstick.

       Sitting on buttons or snaps could be painful after awhile. If you are prone to make this mistake often wear something baggy and accommodating from either direction.

       I like the idea. If not alone for the good idea for all the adjectives, and the word "undercrackers."

       Dangerous idea:
Have a double zip** running down the middle of the pants.
  

       **I dunno what they are really called: The zips are on the same track and face in opposite directions so that if you held both of them and moved them together along the track the zip wouldn't open.

       I thought this was an idea for a clothing-mounted russet potato planter for use in automatically rototilling the yard.

       [xx], I decided not to look at your link at work and am glad I didn't as it would have made a bad day worse. Electric pink and modelled in such a way as to tantalise the beholder with the queasy threat of wang. Ugh.   

       [Jinbish], ouch!

       It's eerily smooth, whatever it is.

       Do they have commando in Scotland? Y'know, for trou?

       //the queasy threat of wang// what a wonderful expression!!

       + just for typing "rotatopants"
