    Am I wrong to want to interface with that communications port? I AM FLUENT IN MORE THAN 6 MILLION COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS

  4. Dan Century says:

    These are not the ‘roids I’m looking for.

    Kudos on the shapely posterior.

  5. Michael W. says:

    I’d love to smuggle some secret Death Star plans in those, if you know what I mean. 

  6. BarBarSeven says:

    It’d like to remove her restraining bolt!

  7. Bleeble eeble doop deep.  Sex.

  8. It looks like white shorts with a red button and sharpie colored all over it.

  9. Bryan Davis says:

    Shorts? What shorts? I see no shorts.

    From the Callipygian star system.

    I was gonna make a sex joke but after reading down to this point, I feel all dirty.

    Interesting to see that the “mutants” are resorting to using female body parts  to show up the items!  Juts like Detroit and others basic earthlings…  And that the comments seem to be overly in favor.

      No. No. Nothing juts like Detroit.

    • Egypt Urnash says:

      um that would be because the “mutant” in question is a lady, and is modeling these nerdy shorts on her own body.

      • millie fink says:

        Yeah. And if a guy made them and wore them and shot them in the same pose, BB would’ve posted those photos instead.

           I don’t know, why don’t you try making something other than bad points about trumped up unneccesary faux outrage. Maybe you’d make the front page.

    • Ipo says:

       Reasonably good looking female mutants should be embarrassed of their attractiveness and have pudgy, hairy, middle aged guys model their awesome, geeky, artsy shorts? 

      Next up: 
      The Dalek burqa, modeled by its creator, Davros himself.

    (insert pervy objectifying comment here)

    She did a great job making those!

  15. BombBlastLightingWaltz says:

    Initially, I thought it was a slim guy possing in those low hip shorts.

    • TWX says:

      The subject has a proper, high waist and doesn’t have any visible body hair.  Generally males are the exact opposite.

    R2 this 3cpo, lets interface.

    “Boy, am I gonna get it. You know, that little droid is gonna get me in a lot of trouble.”

  18. lbigbadbob says:

    Oy… This thread is embarrassing.

  19. Jake0748 says:

    I’m not even sure if it is the Boingboing slogan anymore – But this post is a wonderful thing.  Thanks Cory and thanks Areyna Schmidt (productiveslacker), you made my day.  :)

      Our new tagline is a compendium of greasy peccadilloes.

      • Ladyfingers says:

         As though “wonderful” means anything else.

      • Culturedropout says:

        Arrgh!  You realize that now I’m going to have to start working that line into as many of my conversations as possible? 

        “Well, Frank, I applaud your incentive, but in all honesty, the whole thing strikes me as a compendium of greasy peccadilloes.  

        Or maybe, “Yes, thank you.  I’d like the multi-grain pancakes with a side compendium of greasy peccadilloes.”

  20. puppybeard says:

    As a hairy man with a pudgy belly, I somehow don’t think I’d have made it on here had I made and modelled similar shorts.

    Although to be fair I did use to have jeans with elaborate geometric patterns markered on to them, criss-crossed with cowdung stains. This stuff is just too commercial.

  21. vonbobo says:

    This droid is going to cause me a lot of trouble.

  22. I never got this reaction when I showed people my chewbacca underwear set…

    • TWX says:

       Yeah, well, when a woman-looking-person walks up to a man and asks him if he’d like to see her hairy wookiee, he has to really think hard on the possibility that something isn’t what he expects…

      I used “Do you want to see my hairy wookiee?” as a line on my first date.  She and I went to see Star Wars Empire Strikes Back Special Edition…  It obviously didn’t work, but didn’t get me slapped and the rest of the evening was pleasant enough.  As a high school student I didn’t really expect it to work either.

  23. frogmarch says:

    I don’t understand why BoingBoing chose not to publish the photos of me in my homemade Death Star Garbage Monster shorts.

  24. Culturedropout says:

    OH!!!  R2!!!  

    As an equal-opportunity dirty old man, I’d just like to say I’d hit it, and I don’t care if it’s a dude or a chick!  So there!  XD

  25. Bill Kirsch says:

    Why no comment on the katakana on her right rear?  R2D2 did not have that.  Looks like ‘hukoutakou’ but I get nothing in my Japanese dictionary. 

    • It’s called Aurebesh, the symbolic/language of the Star Wars universe. It reads: “R2D2″

      And no, he didn’t have that on him. A nice decorative touch though.

  26. Mark Pitcavage says:

    R2D2, it is you!

  27. dayhat says:

    ‘Cause I got something for you. It is shiny, it is clean.

    Come on up and I’ll adore you with my yellow laser beam.”
