Markets in Everything: Left-Handed Underpants

LONDON (Reuters) - A British store is launching a range of underpants for left-handed men, an innovation it says will save them both time and embarrassment in front of the porcelain. The new range, by UK-based Hom, will have a horizontal opening instead of a vertical slit accessed from the right-hand side, breaking a tradition that has lasted for 75 years.

These aren't left-handed, the horizontal slit just makes them ambidextrous. For years we've been discriminated against and now they think they've solved the problem just by providing equal access for all. Left opening underwear would have been a much more affirmative action.

They invented these in 1925. They're called boxers.

Real men go commando.
