Is there a theme going on here?

Well, judging from today's first post, and now this...
Authorities here [in Uzbekistan], citing the "unbridled fantasy" that the newfangled thermal undergarments could spark if left unchecked, have ordered an immediate halt to sales of men's and women's underwear lined on the inside with animal fur, apparently the brainchild of a local entrepreneur.
Seriously, folks, I didn't plan this. International Underpants News Day just kinda seemed to happen on its own.

And anyway, what kind of "unbridled fantasy" does the thought of furry underwear conjure up? Is Uzbekistan filled with He-Man fetishists or something?

Update: Great. It just occurred to me that this post is now going to attract all sorts of people Googling the phrase "He-Man fetishists."

Update 2: Welcome, He-Man fetishists!

"Unbridled fantasy" - is that Uzbek for "irrational exuberance"?

Nice post, Sean. :-)
