If, like me*, you purchase all of your underwear at the Bad Astronomy Store, you will appreciate the fact that the classic** thong is one of the five items that has the "MADE IN THE USA" stamp.
Some things make me damn proud to be an American. Thank you Phil Plait. You represent all that is glorious about the Red, White and Blue.
*Okay, not all of my underwear.
**This isn't some fly-by-night flash-in-the-pan thong, you mothers. This baby is a classic!
