A Cincinnati family bought a very special punching bag from a local sports store this week: It was full of underwear.
Joel Heckel, a police officer, purchased the heavy bag, then decided to open it to see what was inside: "(There were) bras, thongs and bathing suits. We could not believe there were clothes inside instead of sand," he said.
Men's underwear, women's underwear, bathing suits--if that wasn't magical enough, some of that underwear was soiled. According to Heckel, It smelled "Bad. Real bad."
A representative of the bag's manufacturer told Heckel that the underwear in the bag was a "quality problem," and that the people who had made the decision to put panties in the workout tool had been fired.
Think about that for a second. Someone, somewhere, in a punching bag factory thought, "You know what we should fill these with? Underwear!" The mind reels!
Reports that Japanese vending machine entrepreneurs have offered millions for the bag are unconfirmed at this time, as they exist only in my imagination.
