Your Turn

This was asked Mindy Kaling yesterday and thought it was a good question. Would you rather be shown in your underwear on national television or wear the same outfit everyday for a month without washing it? She chose the underwear. What about you?

Ummm. Have to go with the clothes for a month. Me in underwear... for a viewing audience...

Underwear, no question.

QueenB said...

Definitely underwear!

clatie said...

without hesitation, dirty outfit

Thea said...

Underwear. Don't think it'd be all that different from wearing a swimsuit/bikini in public. Whereas the same outfit everyday without washing will probably give off funky smells after one week, let alone a whole month.

BigMama said...

As long as I wasn't responsible for the therapy later....underwear. I can't stand dirty cloths.

Brian said...

My choice? I wish Mindy would wear the same clothes for 30 days. Who wants to see an unattractive, chubby Indian woman in underwear?

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Underwear.

Green Wave Gal said...

@ Brian - Mindy is beautiful and funny and smart and talented...

Vicki Cupper said...

Duh, underwear. I have some super cute cat undies from Accessorize. Even has a little bell on the front.

I'm a fucking tank, but I'd rather humiliate myself for one day than wear the same clothes for a month.

Ms Cool said...

Brian's comment makes me want to choose same clothes for 30 days.

SusanB said...

Underwear but it wouldn't be a pretty sight.

Ice Angel said...

Wearing the same clothes. If anyone saw me in my underwear, I could never be seen in public ever again.

Kimberly said...

Underwear.

Del Riser said...

Underwear, but I would be traumatized. Dirty clothes are icky.

TaterOnTheCouch said...

Dirty clothes and I'd try not to sweat too much. I hate my body too much for underwear to be public.

Kimberly said...

Most men...same clothes because you know the worse they look, the less they wear. The guy who looks like Ryan Reynolds never takes off his suit, and the one that looks like Chris Farley has an aversion to.clothes, especially while working in his.front yard

Suzanne said...

Does wearing the grub clothes for a month also come with unlimited couch rotting time, Netflix and maybe a supply of chocolate chip cookies?

Beth said...

That's a tough one. I work from home and pretty much wallow in my own filth, save for the fact that I shower every day.

I think undies ultimately. It's not much different that wearing a bathing suit in public, and I do that at least three times a week.

Underwear

ooopsitsme said...

Underwear - as long as I get to choose & prepare LOL I don't really see much difference between them & swimmers anyway. On second thought maybe the grubby clothes coz I think the hard part is being physically put on display and I can't really handle that.

FS said...

Underwear, black Jockey hi cut briefs and a black bra. The trauma is yours not mine, I see myself every day.

I get sick of myself if I wear my pajamas all day, so no way in hell I'm wearing the same outfit every day for a month even if I get to hang it outside to air out every night.

AKM said...

The outfit, definitely.

EmEyeKay said...

Underwear.

I bet Mindy Kaling has THE CUTEST underwear! Underoos or something like that. But I imagine Mindy has the cutest of everything, since she's so damn cute in the first place!

billybob said...

Awwww the outfit, I can’t even look in the mirror at myself and certainly wouldn’t impose my hideous ass on the general public. Us brits don’t ‘do’ showing our parts....even in a pair of bloomers!
I once turned down a free day of spa treatments when I was told I could only wear paper knickers...no bra......just knickers!

Maja. With a J. said...

Now I have the Truffle Shuffle on a loop in my head.

But yeah, I'd have to go for the underwear.

nolachickee said...

Underwear. I make myself sick if I don't shower/change clothes daily. I stayed in my pajamas this past Saturday until 4pm - I wanted to see how long I'd last before I ripped them off and jumped in the shower. 4pm is a record for me.

.robert said...

I'd even switch from boxers to briefs. I can't imagine how nasty someone would be after 30 days in the same clothes in Florida.

Syko said...

Underwear. Mine covers more than most bikinis anyway, and if you all can stand to look, I can stand to wear it.

this is from the interview she did with Diablo Cody's Red Ban Trailer. Funny interview.

Jason B E said...

Underwear. I wear shorts in the gym every day. Not much different.

EmEyeKay said...

@timebob, that interview is great! Just watched. Thank you!

Wino said...

Same dirty outfit for days...it's not far off from how things really are sometimes! Because, seriously, me on tv in my underwear would scare the shit out of people.

figgy said...

Underwear. Who cares if my body isn't perfect? Even when I was heavier than I am now, I had no problem doing stuff like going to a nude mineral hot spring.

Sherry said...

Underwear but not if Brian has to watch...Fluffy girls upset him. Ah fuck it...Watch it babe. At least mama's got the tatas.

BigMama said...

@Sherry - OMG, I died when I read that. We will just strap him to a chair with his eyes glued open ala Clockwork Orange and do our best Lady Marmalade. (I get to be Pink)

feraltart said...

Underwear. @sherry & @BigMama, I'll join you for Lady Marmalade. I'll be the middle-aged fat chick.

AbderianLaughter said...

@Suzanne...if that's true, I would definitely choose the clothes as well!

But if not...yes, definitely the underoos. Better on t.v. than in a print ad, that's for sure. Just like being a bathing suit...oh wait, I don't really wear those.

Seriously though, a month is so long to not shower.

RenoBlondee said...

Definitely undies!

Lelaina Pierce said...

I would choose wearing the same outfit. Febreeze is an amazing product, y'all.

I'll take having "swamp ass" (thank you, Jessica Simpson) over having people judge me on TV, thankyouverymuch.

fairylights said...

Underwear.

Of course it has to come with a blindfold and ear plugs so I can't see or hear all the people pointing and laughing at the crazy chubby woman displaying herself in such a shocking manner.

KPeony said...

First time poster, long time lurker! Love this site!

Underwear. Totally.

Squid said...

Febreeze clothes for sure. Would not want to be on tv in my underpants.

Sherry said...

@Feraltart. No can do sistuh, I got middle age (and spread) covered. Oh wait, I'll be HOT FLASH! Be it Lady Marmaaaaalaaaaaadee!! Voulex vouz couchez avec moi c'est soi...Everyone sing now/

Olivia Twist said...

When you say "same outfit" does that mean the same underwear also? If so then I'd pick wearing my underwear on tv. Otherwise I'd go with the same outfit for a month.

BigMama said...

@Sherry and Feraltart - now I have that song stuck in my head...I hate it when that happenens

Who's gonna do xtina's part?

Ash said...

G-d forbid "chubby Indian women" dare show off their skin for the world to see...

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

*gets ready to join the "Lady Marmalade" chorus line*

It's going to have to be underwear, even if the sight of me sends Brian, et al. screaming for the hills--I can't stand being dirty or wearing dirty clothes! Oh, and slips count as underwear, right? I could throw on a black one and be street legal at that point!

redronnie said...

this is why perfume was invented. I could not expose my daughter and grand-daughters to ridicule with my dangling bits hanging all over the place, to save them the shame,same clothes for a month.

SKT said...

UNDERWEAR all the way =)

everyone should be proud of their body, it's the only one they've got!

Plus she didn't specify for how long or in what context?

What if you were only in the background for a few seconds?

TheDailyLmo said...

"same outfit" 4 me. That lifestyle never hurt Keith Richards swagga did it?

New Life and Attitude said...

I can't believe I'm saying this but I would choose underwear. Maybe I would attract a good plastic surgeon to get rid of the extra skin from losing 170 lbs.

hotchacha said...

I'm pretty sure the underwear thing has already happened to me.
