“A new online survey reveals some unpleasant truths about American’s underwear habits: According to a poll conducted by underwear brand Tommy John, nearly half of Americans admit they’ve worn the same drawers for two or more days in a row.

The survey, which polled 2,000 men and women, revealed that 45 percent of respondents have ignored their mother’s warning about always having on a fresh pair. What’s more, a full 13 percent cop to wearing the same panties for a week or more.”

Our Poll On The Legitimacy of Their Underwear Changing Poll:

So we reported this story that’s gone viral about an underwear company that conducted a poll which concluded that nearly half of Americans don’t change their underwear daily.

I’m calling bullshit.

I’m guessing that the results were fabricated because the marketing folks at said underwear company knew the story would go viral and give the radio jockeys, newscasters and bloggers something to talk about (and look at us taking the bait) and it would gain exposure for the underwear company.

What do you think? vote in our poll about the legitimacy of the poll-

THIS. IS. BANANAS.
