Britney’s Wedding Night Skivvies
image Britney Spears' wedding-night underwear is up for sale on eBay, nabbed by someone working on the catering staff at the house where she stayed. It's guaranteed to be 100% authentic, so I guess it can't be a hoax. Right? Not like her used chewing gum that was up for sale about a month ago. Better bid on this fast before the auction is pulled by eBay.

raspberry It's better than the chewing gum, at least you could wear it...if you'd like a disease.

I'm kinda grossed out by this whole thing.

How could you possibly know if it's really Britney's? Surely she isn't going to authenticate it-- if she wanted to do that, she'd sell the undies herself.
I did read a year or two ago about some entrepreneur in Japan who sold schoolgirls' used underpants (in a vending machine!) to presumably rather desperate men. The girls would change pants on their way to school each day and be paid a nice sum in return.
The government tried to put a stop to it, but it turned out it had never occurred to anyone to pass a law against selling somebody else's old underwear. They finally got the guy for not having the proper permit to operate a vending machine.

The wedding took place in Studio City CA, but the ebay seller lists New York/New Jersey as their primary residence. So unless Britney decided to fly the entire catering staff over to LA for the private and secret ceremony (because they obviously don't have any caterers in LA) this auction has to be a hoax...

not like there was any doubt to begin with...

I thought the Japan undies thing was that there were shops that had the panties in a plastic baggie, and a picture, showing them being worn by a girl. I don't know if these girls were underage, or if they were professional "underwear models". I think it was on one of the late night shows...Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien...something like that.

So I decided to check to see how much the panties were going for today....and they pulled the item!Good thing eBay is there protecting people from themselves!

"They pulled the item" a wedgie?

If they smell like fish they are probably really hers
