Knicker knicker nicked!

"They are appealing for anyone in the Bussage area "who believes their underwear could have been taken" to get in touch, so that they can establish whether the foundation garments are stolen or not."

"I'm not sure, I'll have to check by sniffing them" said a Mrs Windowlicker through her beard.

Identity Failure

I idly clicked on the "Bras" tag at the bottom of the article and found 25 articles, including at least one that had nothing to do with airbag restraint (I didn't look at all of them).

I'm not even sure this article is directly relevant, otherwise the title would have made mention of an iden-titty parade. It would have been appropriate, given that it occurred in Bustage.

Knickers

Wouldn't it be easier for the thief to just go to M&S, or, if "used" is required, then from the internet?

OK, that pair of lightly soiled panties pictured with a young attractive oriental lovely might actually have been stained by her 60 year old uncle, but it spares the, (presumably ignominious?), experience of being publicly branded a knicker nicker.

Look, I've got the receipts!

Maybe that is his defence? On the other hand, is there much difference between being publicly branded a pervert who steals underwear, or a pervert who buys used underwear?

"come forward and finger their bras and knickers "

do that in front of a copper and you'd probably get arrested.

Indeed

I think for any of former owners to want them back they would have to be kinkier than the thief.

Identity Parade?

I rather fancy that there might be more takers for this identity parade if it involved having real-life models sporting the goods, and with males coming forward to represent their partners.....

Paris because I'd like to claim her undies.

The correct term is...

"SNOWDROPPING" as in (n) Snowdropper, (adj)snowdropping, snowdropped,

FACT. Look it up in the Australian MacQuarie Dictionary.

Oh, we don't have teh interwabs down 'ere; it's full of commies, heathens, kiddie fiddlers and, aherm, snowdroppers.

Carry on.
