What a night

That wine-loving wife of the vicar's
Woke up in a state with no knickers
In the back of a hearse,
No cash in her purse
And her abdomen covered in stickers.

  1. ahh the perils of the demon, drink; this is a witty variation on such perils; the vicar’s wife seems a prime target for such humor; I know in Midsomer we come across a few inebriated examples; they must exist if Midsomer tells us so πŸ™‚

  2. Out of interest (because it’s always the vicar’s wife that cops it and I assume that’s because of the rhyme and because knickers are for women) I looked up knickers… just to check. This is what it said: British
    a woman’s or girl’s undergarment covering the lower part of the torso to the top of the thighs and having two holes for the legs.
    LOL Only two holes, hey? No wonder these poor wives are often without. Impossible garment.

  3. Love the stickers! LOL Never heard of grundies, but it sounds much like American undies. I wonder if it was a British brand name that Americans messed up later? Popular euphemism here in the 50’s or possibly before. My dad used that one but I don’t think my grandparents did. Yup, just checked origin. Late 40’s early 50’s was a peak in usage, and oddly, a huge spike around 2019. I wonder if a famous comedian made it go viral. Oh dear, that sounds nastier than intended. LOL!! πŸ˜€

  4. Also skivvy, bloomers (that what my grandma called them), panties, unmentionables, undies… just for the women. My favorite for men – tidy whities (name not look)
