Stole your Pants 20 10, 9:56am


...So THAT'S where the Japanese picked up that the word "pants" (or pan-tsu, as they pronounce it) for underwear! That confused me when I visited there. I assumed they'd picked up a slightly older/childish word "underpants", and then abbreviated it poorly, losing the context.
