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?
