Ghana Bans Sale Of Used Underwear

By Wyatt Earp | November 30, 2010

I already paid for my trip over there!

Yeah, before you question the headline, no, I am not drunk. The headline is legitimate. Disgusting, but legitimate. Apparently they are into some freaky things in Ghana, including the sale of “recycled” underwear.”

It is my sincere hope that they at least wash the undies before they put them on the racks.

Ghana plans to enforce a ban on the sale of second-hand underwear beginning in February, an official said on Monday, citing the health risks involved in the hawking of the garments by street vendors.

“We are collaborating with the Ghana Standard Board to halt the importation of second-hand underwear into the country as a measure to promote good health and reduce government?s expenditure on health,” said Appiah Donyinah, director of import and export at the trade ministry.

The enforcement of the ban on imports and sales in the West African nation would extend to other used goods as well, including mattresses, handkerchiefs, socks and pants, he said.

Great, now where will Bill Clinton give away his used boxers?

    John Kerry walks into the Dr’s office for his yearly exam.
    Just prior to his leaving the Dr. says, “I need to get some sperm, fecal and urine samples before you leave.”
    Kerry hands him his underwear.

    I’ll take a pass on the used underwear and go commando, on the plus side there are no visible panty lines.

    That sucks!!!!!!!!!!

    One of my favorite hobbies has always been to buy used underwear and then have my dog sniff them and track down the owner.

    I like to knock on the door around dinner time buck naked and then slip into my new skivvies in front of the whole family around the dinner table while stuttering th-th-thankyou and bobbing my head like a coked up parakeet.

    Now what am I gonna do???

    In other news, did ya’ll wanna see the exact moment Wyatt decided he wanted to park his cruiser and become a detective?

    I also heard a rumor that immediately after this epic fail, LEOs switched to German Shepards because they were uh… “into that.”

    Didn’t you see that CSI episode where someone sold used ladies’ undies? Specially sealed to keep in that “special scent.”

    Somehow, I imagine this new regulation is probably to comply with some sort of UN mandate to comply with the internatioal Underware Trade and Control act.

    It’s good to know that the US isn’t the only country where the gubmant is trying to get in everyone’s pants.

    I imagine there was concern for the safety of their airport screeners since I’m sure they lack the sophisticated Porn Scanners that we in the West cherish and love so much.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I think 3rd worlders like GHANA have a few more “important” things to concern themselves with…like HUNGER…or DISEASE.
    (‘ya think?)

    I’m just sayin’

    So long as Japan keeps on offering used school girl panties in vending machine fetishes around the world are safe.
