You’re going about your day, running some errands, and, all of a sudden, a gust of wind simultaneously blows up your skirt and your underwear drops. This must happen pretty often considering there were two different paintings depicting the embarrassing turn of events at the local antique shop:
Obviously, it doesn’t happen to these two very often, as they look completely surprised that the size underpants they chose were so loose, they fell to the floor against incoming winds.
You know the day chivalry died? When these ladies’ panties dropped and neither the construction guy, or the bus driver (OR the painter) offered to take their bag of groceries so they could right themselves. The nerve!

Having your underwear drop from gusts of wind is a symptom of having eaten zombie candy. These two ladies are minutes away from becoming flesh eating creatures of the dead. You can see it in their eyes too.
Wow, you’re right. I thought their expressions were saying “What!? How is this possible considering the Law of Physics?” But, on second look, it’s “WHAT!? I’ve died of embarrassment and now must devour the living.”
even more unbelievable, the guy operating the jackhammer is completely out of OSHA compliance with that hat!!
His legs are also really short, which makes the proper hat even more important because he’s even closer to the jackhammer.
These days, acknowledging the skirt blowing would get you 3 sexual harassment classes.
I asked my Gram (previously mentioned on your blog) what she thought about Marilyn Monroe’s skirt blowing up picture in the 50s. She was a huge Marliyn fan and even copied her look during the 50s. Gram responded, “every woman knows what blows her skirt up, don’t let ’em lie to ya”…
I’ll leave you with that
I’m completely making this up, but the instillation of grates increased 5 fold after the release of The Seven Year Itch.
It’s why I exclusively wear pants.
Looks like they shop at the same underwear store. Probably has something to do with the brand.
I think you’re on to something. Must have been a defective batch of elastic.
Am I the only one here catching the phallic references? The man with the “jackhammer” , the “poles” on the bus….Leave it to the gay guy to point this out…..
You need something to look at, I understand. There’s such depth to this artist’s work. Insert penetration joke.
These are but a reminder of how the times have changed. Never would that happen now as standard shopping attire is Kirkland brand sweatpants and a stained t-shirt. Thanks for the nostalgia.
Additionally, these days, people are too big for their underwear, not the other way around.
This ALWAYS happening to me. Are those flyers for a self help group I could attend?
According to the bus driver and the construction worker, you don’t need any help.
Don’t be fooled. Look at their faces. Those panties drop all on their own accord all the time. That’s how they gets them the menfolks. Especially that one on the bus. She has a free hand, and all she’s doing is slightly holding down her dress. Just think of the view she’s giving the people waiting to get on the bus.
Or maybe, the bus is going to Vegas and that’s how strippers entered a bachelor party back in the olden days.
I have obviously given this way too much thought at this point.
I do think the bus lady looks the least shocked of the two. Nowadays it’s nip-slip this and nip-slip that, or no underwear at all. Long gone are the good old days of underwear dropping for attention.
Women, I love when that happens!
(see what I did there?)
Damn, and I always believed a well-timed pantie drop guaranteed a grocery carry…if not a wild ride on a jackhammer!
I think you can count on the jackhammer ride, but not the help with your groceries.
Hmm. All I can think about is why one would choose to buy too large underwear. Well, that and also that it looks like the dog is chasing her panties.
Maybe the dog is rushing to help, unlike some people in that painting.
Is that what you crazy kids are calling it these days?
HA! I was going to joke about the dog wanting to eat the crotch out of the underwear, as that is many dogs’ past time, but then for some reason I thought that was too gross and double entendre-y.
Well, I bet the vibrations from the jack hammer didn’t exactly help those panties stay on in the 2nd picture either! Forget the wind!
Yes! How did I miss that?
Clearly they shop at the same underwear store as Lilo and Britney Spears.
But they were smart, they returned their too-large underwear and just went without.
What is this “underwear” of which you speak?
Look at the faces of the men… I think this is what “Heroes” did in the 50’s… Nobody hunted them until they got useful powers.
HA! Those two had to resort to panty dropping because they didn’t have their super x-ray glasses.
I think they rationed elastic for the war effort. This is how America does pro-war propaganda. Sex sells, ya know?
Interesting, I did see some old Uncle Sam signs about buying bonds and donating underwear for the war.
Undies can fall down like that? Who knew?
At least now we ALL know and can be more diligent about avoiding it.
