So, a few weeks ago, while idly roaming around the internet, I stumbled on some website that was talking about fashion or something (yeah, crazy, huh?) and there was a reference to something called “spanx.”
My general reaction to running into a term or word I don’t immediately know, or if I encounter a word used in an unusual and distinctive way, is to google it to see what’s up. So I did, I found a wiki page I think and learned that “spanx” are basically control-top panties on steroids. People like Kim Kardashian apparently wear them like their mothers probably wore girdles.
OK, so no big deal, right? New word/concept learned, a few minutes of wasted time, that’s the end of it right?
Except now every website I visit throws up google ads full of spanx.
I mean EVERY STINKING PAGE. Instapundit, National Review, Drudge, even my gaming sites!
So now the interwebz think I have some sort of spanx fixation.
Somehow I can’t help but think this has landed me on some potential transvestite watch list…
Man, it’s a creepy interwebz these days.
Oh, if you are still wondering, I give you…. spanx!
That’s the sort of image I’ve been seeing on almost every page I visit now.
Of course the last person on earth who would need to wear spanx is that model…
