Men's fashion booty call

Rare is the men’s clothing designer with both a sense of style and a sense of humor. But (and I use the word advisedly) if Andy Dunn has his way, men will soon be as conscious of their own bums as they are of women’s. Using Web technology, Mr. Dunn claims he eliminates the saggy bottoms of ill-fitting pants. Plus free shipping. The brand name displays his sense of humor. He calls his line “Bonobos” after the promiscuous species of primates. The chimps are famous. They substitute sex for aggression. Wouldn’t that be nice…

Time was so short when U.S. troops scrambled for the war in Afghanistan there wasn’t time to requisition supplies through the Army, so Special Forces got their tents from REI, ordered fleece jackets from North Face and bought every Garmin eTrex GPS unit they could find.

Whitney Houston and Brittany Spears play for the University of Colorado women’s basketball team. Neither was named for the singer, they say. For a while, the coaches also recruited a player named Sweets Underwood but she didn’t make it. Hey girl – change your name to Carrie.

In the 1950s, the Guinness brewing company put some 200,000 messages in beer bottles and tossed them out to sea. Even this many years later, a few people still write in to claim their reward. That’s stout.
