WASHINGTON - Imagine a world without the phrase "Who cut the cheese?"
Breaking (wind) news for those with gas problems -- a line of underwear claims to use chemical warfare technology to filter fumes from flatulence.
The underwear, called Shreddies, is made by a British company. According to the company, the garment features a "Zorflex"-activated carbon back panel, which absorbs and neutralizes odors.
The stink-preventing intimates come in briefs and high-waisted briefs for women, and in boxer-briefs and boxers for men.
According to The Huffington Post, a company spokesperson says Shreddies can handle "200 times the average flatulence emission."
