Few things are more terrifying than the Speedo, but ladies ... it's about to get a lot worse.
The mankini is a horrid little invention that you may remember Sacha Baron Cohen donning in Borat to make us all laugh. If you thought it was a joke, you thought wrong.
No one is laughing now.
This hideous combination of dental floss top straps and a Speedo bottom may be coming to a beach near you. God help us all.
And this trend blog says it may actually be a serious threat to all of the beach-going public for years to come:
Now designers are just glorifying this junk-enhancing lycra by spiffing it up a bit. You know, cut outs, neck straps, and thong-tha-thong-thong-thongs. I just have two words for men who want to put it all out there in one of these: Bikini wax.
Wait, I think I just found the silver lining!
No longer will we have to endure the pain alone. I bet less men will be prodding us to get waxed if they know the pain themselves. So, two thumbs up for that. Plus, a little grooming never hurt anyone, male or female.
But the reason! Oh God, the reason! Try as I may, I just can't get behind this hideous creation. I would instantly lose any and all attraction to my husband if he put this on, and in all likelihood, such an outfit would mean he would have to turn in his testicles to the man police.
You know who I can see wearing this, though? The boys of the Jersey Shore. Season 3, here we come!
What do you think of the mankini?
