This one is for all my fellow programmers

I have decided to come up with a software to keep track of your wardrobe. With a click of the mouse you should be able to find the exact location of your shirt, shoes or accessories. All of your belongings will be RFID tagged. The software will be easy to use and imaginative. While testing this software on my own belongings, I tried to locate my Senthil and Shrik's boxer shorts. Due to a bug, the software was not able to locate the desired object and the following message was displayed on the computer screen:

Error: Undie-find error!

There may be more bugs than you think in that software of yours...

Main Entry:
un·dies Listen to the pronunciation of undies
noun plural
by shortening & alteration

: underwear; especially : women's underwear

Senthil: Three things I want to point out.

1. This post was for programmers. Ha ha.
2. This is 2008, not your childhood (aka 1900) anymore.
3. Women wear boxer shorts too. Liberate yourself. :)

un·dies –plural noun
women's or children's underwear.

American Heritage Dictionary
pl.n. Informal
Underwear, especially for women or girls.

Online Etymology Dictionary
1906, diminutive euphemistic abbreviation for women's underwear (or undergarments).

women's underwear

That makes it four dictionaries that need to liberate themselves... Women wearing boxers wouldn't make a boxer a women's underwear, any more than a man wearing a bra would make a bra a men's underwear.

shrik: You too? You guys have way too much time on your hands. Shrik, Senthil, I stand corrected and have made modifications to the post to make the joke correct in its gender-clothing association.

I don't care what you and Shrik do in your spare time, but what are you doing with my Boxer shorts?

i agree with shrik's logic - in fact senti would too. as he will vouch, there are times in a man's life when he has to wear a corset but that doesnt mean a corset is considered male underwear...

Now I understand - the joke was about underwear gender.

Underwear's underwear.

Madhu: Back brace. It's called a BACK BRACE! Sigh. Liberal art students...

To liberate ourselves, I suggest we organize a party during which all the guys will wear corsets, and all the girls boxer shorts. It will also be a golden opportunity for Anurag to test his software...
