If you've been following this blog you'll know we got a couple of very weird emails in the two weeks since our World's Dirtiest Underwear Competition was announced. The first was a submission of a pair of underwear by Andy who claimed to live in a bin in Sheffield. The second was from a woman named Janine who claimed to be an agent collecting underwear for a rich Japanese man. Yesterday the following email arrived with the subject "fuck me phil im on top of the world".

Thanks B3ta! We love you, even though you think we're shit!
: SHIT INTERNET DRAGONS DEN
Red-hot new feature that will make us rich
>> Pre-soiled underwear <<
Yeah yeah, we're aware it's big in Japan but
flipping heck. These guys "makes pre-stained
clothing that free people from the
embarrassment of having soiled clothing by
selling clothes that come already soiled".
Mostly pre-skidmarked pants.

I met up with Mark (the other founder of Easy Tiger who has since left the company) the other night and over a couple of beers because we are very very vain we interviewed each other using the shitty video recorder on my Blackberry. It's not pretty but there are a couple of good moments jammed in here.

... and the first entry is from Sheffield, UK. The man claims to live "in a bin" (garbage can if you're a North American). I'm not sure what this dude has done to these but its pretty wretched.

OK so I'm starting to have my doubts that the whole "Dirtiest Underwear In The World" competition is going to be the massive viral marketing sensation I thought it would be, since the very thought of putting a pair of my own skiddies on the Internet scares the shit out of me, pardon the pun. Anyway I've decided to put the development pair up here so you can all have a good laugh at my expense and we can get this thing started on the right note.
The pair of shit stained undies you see above were "developed" in the following way: First I ate some food guaranteed to make me sick. I chose burritos because I'm allergic to cheese. Then I went to the handicapped loos at work on my lunch break and made a poo smoothie. Then I put on a fresh pair of drawers and fisted myself. And that was it, the beautiful image you see above was created.
You're probably wondering why this underwear looks nothing like the underwear that we put up for sale. That's because we originally asked an artist to design it but she wouldn't admit to ever having soiled a pair of panties herself and so insisted that we provide her with a picture of a real pair to illustrate what we were after. The fact her version looks so different from the above suggests to me she probably had created a real one before but was too ashamed to admit it.
