This advertisement for bamboo boxer shorts Bossy found in her New Yorker magazine yesterday. Because Bossy’s inner 14-year-old was all, “Oh is this what you mean by wood in your pants?”
Bossy must say, right up there with socks made of oak, Bossy has never considered a world where bamboo undies were a benefit. Who knew?

I got a whole forest of bamboo and a need for some new underwear. You think it would be hard to make?

Get some pandabears to pre-chew them for you, that’ll work!

And it takes so long to carve them. Not beneficial.

I feel like a dork knowing this, but bamboo is naturally anti-microbial, which makes it great for clothing, sheets, and medical linens. Which, when you think about what goes INTO those boxers, might be considered a great benefit!

Have you ever felt Bamboo Cotton sheets? They are so soft, you will want to take to your bed and never get up!

I don’t understand how this can work . . . .

Oh, no, LMSS – she took your advice!
I’m trying to be clever, knowing that bamboo can grow as quickly as 24 inches in one day, but I can’t make it work. Anyone else wanna try?

I have knit with bamboo yarn; splits like a MoFo, but it is non-allergenic (a plus for me)!
I’d hit the underwear model (where “hit” equals “do”)! 😉

We have bamboo flooring, and one of the benefits is that it doesn’t expand with heat and moisture. Just sayin’ . . .

Ok what’s the dealio with the bamboo? While shopping for socks at Target- they had socks made with Bamboo?

I missed the “inner” part of “Bossy’s inner 14-year-old” and thought first time round that Bossy Daughter was asking her mother that!! And wondered (a) what Bossy answered and (b) what BD was doing asking her mother that, and then (c) realized I’d misread it.
Life is even more entertaining for those who misread.

Maybe the marketing people were all “If we revolt people then they’ll buy” and then they high fived or something.
