Well, it’s finally spring and summer will be here before we know it, so now’s the time to start shopping for some clothes for warmer weather. Let me just take a big sip of iced coffee and open my laptop:

What, in the name of all that is good and holy, is that? Some kind of denim diaper? Ah, yes, just what every modern woman on the go is looking for: a pair of shorts that you need to get a bikini wax to wear. Or…are they underwear? Which also sounds great, because who doesn’t want a pair of panties made out of thick, coarse-crotch, super-unabsorbent denim?
Apparently, they’re either. Or both. Shorts and underwear, that is. By Y/Project, they’re listed on ssense.com as “Navy Denim Panties.” But the description says, “Denim brief-style shorts in navy.” So who knows. According to ABC7, they can be worn under or over pants and Y/Project calls it underwear that doesn’t need to stay “under there.” Yikes.
And in case you thought the company was just trolling people, the jean panties (“janties”) cost $315 (THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN DOLLARS) and are completely sold out on the site, except for size XS (I just checked).
You can probably guess what Twitter thought of this fashion nightmare.
A few people thought it was maybe just a late April Fools’ joke.
Please tell me this is just a late april fools joke

And several people made references to Arrested Development‘s “Never-nudes.”

But mostly it was just a cornucopia of jokes.

I don’t know about your summer “collection,” but I don’t really think these janties will be joining mine.
