Moms Find Solution To 'Plumber's Crack'

Two Central Coast moms say they have come up with a solution to the old problem of "plumber's crack," the revealing and often embarrassing problem of exposed backsides resulting from poorly fitting pants.

Christine Meeks and Kelley DeSerpa have come up with the Hip-T an invention designed to keep your assets covered.

Meeks and DeSerpa, who have patented their idea, said they came up with the idea when one of their daughters complained about the problem.

About a year ago, Meeks and DeSerpa converted a bedroom into an office and business with about $15,000 saved between them.

Most sales take place through their Web site and they have already shipped their product to addresses in all 50 states. The hip-T runs $19.95.

Yes, small things get missed, but small things get missed in every reference. The brilliance of Wikipedia is that while there may be a few people adding erroneous information, there are thousands more seeking it out and removing it.

Again, it's been proved to be about as accurate as Encyclopedia Britannica, so questioning its value as a reference is a little disingenuous.

c-dub: Generally reliable but not everything gets filtered and since anyone could submit into the database, small things get missed.

I could see where they're getting at this. I'm a fan of long t-shirts/shirts myself being slightly taller than norm (relative to my schoolmates) but sometimes I find it a little problematic to shop with this restriction.
