Superman coat-hanger

Communistar sells these novelty coat-hangers in the shape of Superman's underwear-pervert logo. "Call for pricing" -- I'm guessing this means "If you have to ask, you can't afford it." Link


  1. Well, it’s not like we can legally refer to them by that other term, it’s copyrighted. (And yes, I know, fair use, blah blah; the point is, “underwear pervert” was coined for a reason, and that reason hasn’t gone away.)

  2. I agree with the above posters about retiring “underwear pervert.” With all due admiration to to the inventive, ingenious Warren Ellis, superheroes are a childlike, to be certain, representation of higher ideals. Flawed in execution, simplistic in concept, and largely reduced these days to re-re-recycled cliches.

    But if you’ve ever watched a little kid discovering these characters and their clear struggles against outsized evil, you might reconsider the “UP” swipe.

  3. I’ll third that – it was mildly amusing at first. Then kind of annoying. Then pretty much a continuing kick in the nuts to anyone that reads a comic title with capes in it. And now, finally, it’s just disrespecting THE ultimate comic hero (see how I did that without using s-u-p-e-r-h-e-r-o-e-s and thus providing an opportunity to use “underwear perverts” yet again?)

    Next it will be, like, zen or something.
