Kids Invented the Wedgie-Proof Underwear

As a kid, nothing is more humiliating than getting a wedgie from the school yard bully. But the nightmare is finally over, thanks to 8-year-old twins Jared and Justin Serovich, who created the world's first wedgie-proof underwear, the Rip Away 1000!

This year, 8-year-old twins Jared and Justin Serovich were working each other over with the schoolyard bully's staple when their mother, Julie, caught them in the act and took them to task.

Julie's partner, Judy Kimberly, sarcastically suggested that someone should invent wedgie-proof underwear.

The boys, good students who excel at science and math, took the challenge seriously.

How did they do it?

"We took some old pairs of underwear and cut the bottom and side seams and put in Velcro," Jared explained.

Added Justin: "When the person tries to grab you -- like the bully or the person tries to give you a wedgie -- they just rip away."

Are there really that many gay bullies out there that like to play with boys underwear?

Seems like a few "how gay are you?" comments would put a damper on their activities.

for the brit in comment #1,

to "pants" someone means to run up and pull down their trousers, usually to the ankles, if possible.

also, if the bully yanks out your pull-away underwear, you have to go commando after that. why not just thwart wedgies by omitting underwear in the first place? dirtier pants?

i guess the wedgie-proof underwear would only work once. then the bully would find some other way to torture you.
