Squirrel Underpants (OMG)

I was in New York last week and went to my favorite quirky gift shop: E.A.T, on Madison Avenue. (Those of you who’ve been reading this blog since ’08 may remember that the last wacky thing I bought there was a Yodeling Pickle.)

I was picking up some Easter gifts for my daughters (shower caps with yellow ducks on them, boxer shorts with monkeys on them). However, after making my choices (excellent, n’est-ce pas?), I found something that, even for a store with eccentric inventory, was breathtakingly strange.

Squirrel Underpants.

They are 100% percent cotton and clearly designed with a male squirrel in mind. I had to buy them, even though I have no intention of attempting to dress a squirrel (or a frog or gerbil, or anybody with a three-inch waist). I just had to become an owner of such a remarkably stupid thing.

Here are some reasons to consider investing in a pair of Squirrel Underpants: 1. You are looking for an economical and thoughtful gift for your hamster. 2.You have ten bucks that you just can’t stand the sight of anymore. 3.You need a conversation starter to keep handy in your purse. 4.You are a raving wingnut.

If any of those reasons ring your bell, but you don’t live near E.A.T., click here for product details and to purchase.

Not to go overboard, but I’m thinking S.U.s just might be this year’s Yodeling Pickle.

    That is so damn awesome. If they didn’t cost more than my own underpants, I might buy a pair.

    I actually have heard of these underpants. While the idea is actually really awesome, I find the most awesome aspect is that I have the ability to say “underpants” one more time. I love to say “underpants”. And Jessica, as an artist in the childrens’ arena, I’m sure you know how important that is.

    You guys are hilarious! Donna, I hear you. Scot, I agree, any opportunity to say that word..and I know a number of adults who are on the underpants page….

    Okay. Those are awesome, but I think the video on the product page was better. Well I hope they come in handy if you ever want to help a naked squirrel.

    Wish I’d known about them before! Or haven’t I told you about “Bob”? He was the mighty photogenic squirrel my son and English nephew adopted a few years ago on a trip to Yosemite. Bob was quite a stud, even without the banana hammock.

  6. Hi Jess,

    I just saw you in ‘Phantom of Paradise’ and you struck a chord with me. I loved the way you sung ‘old souls’. You still look hella gorgeous! You’re timeless!
    Anyway, I write within this topic because I’m a squirrel fanatic. I promote ‘Mexican Wrestling Squirrels’.
    Also, I want to know if you’ve ever done any other songs besides in children’s genre.
