The Czech Republic’s environment ministry has come under fire for ordering 1,000 pairs of male and female underwear adorned with images of endangered animals as part of an end-of-year budget splurge.

The environment ministry will use the beaver and cormorant pants as promotional materials for its Czech Nature campaign, which aims to encourage people to take an active role in environmental protection.

With allegations of frivolous government spending on pants filling the press, the underwear spat even overshadowed controversy surrounding the environment ministry’s purchase of 130 new cars for its ministerial fleet.

I didn’t, it’s too absurd!
And a cormorant?
Sheesh, that’s slang they don’t use in the younger circles over there anymore.

No, that scene from Weird Science where they have the skivvies on their heads.
How else do you think they test new designs?
Certainly not by having anyone actually wear the things.

“This is really tacky.”

We’ll list that as a defect of the decal, then spin that as a feature on the label.
Then charge extra for the “closeness enhancing decal” that will sticky tack to everything.

Are beavers really endangered? In this PC homo-loving world, it’s one eyed trouser trout that need govt. protection.

Looks like a man’s toe, which is disturbing.

I was at a concert and the chick in front of us had that camel tattoo on her big toe.
