Uncouth Cash Drawers: Big Retailer Markets 'Money Pot' Panties To Teenybopper Girls

[UPDATE: 8:34 pm, 12/13/07 10 -- Wal-Mart is pulling the money pot pink panties from its stores. Jill Zimon Miller reports that FOX News jumped on the story and gave the chain a wedgie. Parents were complaining. JMZ's report is curious about the fate of the undies: Will they wind up someplace where people can't read the words?]

CINCINNATI (TDB) -- Jill Miller Zimon has the lowdown on the low down discount chain that is selling pink panties with "Who needs credit cards" emblazoned over the nether region. Outraged or offended? She has links to file complaints at the chain's corporate headquarters.

Jill says the panties are rude and crude and flash an inappropriate message for young females and agrees: "There's nothing quite like telling adolescent girls that they don't need to worry about finances since they have their very own moneypot between their legs."


  1. Now, now Mr. Former Professional Journalist! I wrote neither "rude" or "crude." I believe "sick" was the word. :)

    Why, what word would you use, Mr. Sloat?


  2. Hi Jill --

    "Sick" does an injustice to things that cause illness -- microbes and viruses.

    Repulsive? Repugnant? I don't know what is a strong enough word to express my disgust. Maybe the execs who approved the sale of this crud should be forced to wear it.

  3. Do you want me to lose my lunch, Bill!!?

    Hmm - maybe if they were forced to where them in public and then see if anyone takes them up on their suggestion - I think they'd need Santa AND credit cards to get home.

    Oy. I need to get back to work. lol
