There are many strange, awkward, or underacknowledged moments of life that are in need of a word or phrase by which we are able to express their commonality. One such is that awkward moment when your underpants fall apart while you are in the middle of wearing them. You may smile and put up a brave face, chat pleasantly to your boss as if nothing out of the ordinary has happened, but in that moment, something fundamental has shifted in reality; your underpants have changed into something completely different. Let's workshop a few phrases for this important moment now:
your unders down under go under
asunderpants/gone asunderpants/asunderpanted: "He smiled the smile of one who had gone asunderpants".
wedgied by the nothing
falling into the abyss/fell into the abyss
to take the invisible plunge
going silently commando
wearing one's blunderpants
biology meets topology
your clothes clothes take their clothes off
underdance/doing the underdance
to have your knickers knock off and your knackers nick off through a nook in your knickers
to have a derriere in the merrier area/to have a derriere make merry in the nefarious area
going hey down derriere
when it's over for your unders.
