Wearing panties just isn't scary...

Back in July, the #goatposse (if you're unfamiliar with this twitter hastag, click here for a glimpse of the madness that is GOAT) started hazing new members (and even some veterans) with a diabolical and outrageously fun meme started by our own dastardly delightful Michelle Simkins.

The infamous outbreak came to be known as The Evil Panty Meme, and struck laughter and dread into the hearts of all who were tagged. Here's my own rendition, from when I fell into the meme's clutches.

Recently, there have been rumors that the panty meme died a quiet death in the cybersphere. But today I found proof that it's still a living contagion:

And to that I say: Justin, take it away!

1.What do you call your panties/underwear/undergarments? Do you have any commonly used nicknames for them?

Wifey calls them “pain in the ass”.

2. Have you ever had that supposedly common dream of being in a crowded place in only your underwear?

Before you read this just remember: you asked!  I once had a dream that I “preemptively” killed a tribe of cannibals while in nothing save my underwear.  This happened immediately following my reading the book, THE WOODS ARE DARK by the late (and great) Richard Laymon.  It was a cool dream…and may end up in a book sometime. 

3. What is the worst thing you can think of to make panties out of?

Metal filings glued to burlap.  What’d you expect?

4. If you were a pair of panties what color would you be? And why?

Black. Enough said.

5. Have you ever thrown your panties/underwear at a rock star or other celebrity? If so, which one(s)? If not, which one(s) WOULD you throw your panties/underwear at, given the opportunity?

No, but I once had a pair dangled in my face in a mosh-pit.    

6. You’re out of clean panties. What do you do?

Go commando. (Ditto)

7. Are you old enough to remember Underoos? If so, did you have any? Which ones?

Yes, I remember them, but I never had any (thank you, mom).

8. If you could have any message printed on your panties, what would it be?

Probably the title of one of my books: INHUMAN possibly J heh heh  

9. How many bloggers does it take to put panties on a goat?

Only one—the goat posse is made up of fully-grown goats and they can put on their own panties…IF they want them on.

Tag Four People and tell them why you are being so cruel to them.

No more evil panty meme, all gone, bye-bye.


Justin didn't tag anyone, but since this is MY blog, I get to tag someone in his place. We have two new #goatposse trainees who have yet to do the meme:

Shelly Brown
Amy Rolland (since you don't have a blog, you're welcome to guest post on one of the residing #goatposse’s blogs)

And let's not forget that Kalen is still MIA per this rite of passage.

So, you goats are up!

Long live #goatposse, and may the panties prevail. :)

To the rest of my readers, I have a **very special guest** coming THIS Friday for my Query Trackers Making Tracks series. Tune in to find out what makes the wheels spin in her head. Here's a hint, it's got a furry face, and it's not a goat.

Until then, have a lovely middle of the week!


  1. Lol! More men should get in on this. Too funny!

  2. Hahaaa! This is hilarious. The whole thing. LOL

  3. I love your memes! They always make me laugh.

  4. Oh my goodness! That was hilarious!! Well done, Justin--finally, a sense of closure, eh?

    And Anita, your faux news article was AWESOME! You are one talented #goatqueen ;o)

  5. Awww, Justin is a good sport! The "thank you, mom" made me laugh out loud.

  6. WHOOP! WHOOP! WHOOP! (That's the buzzer that signifies you've just won the jackpot) AWESOME POST!

    Justin, you're as warped as I hoped you'd be.

    Side note to Ang: It's okay to be afraid of panties. I don't like flying insects.

    Love the news article, my fellow cloven sister.

  7. Well done...thanks, Anita! The newspaper clipping was a nice touch ;) Whew--pressure off the boy goat!

  8. OH BRAVO Justin! Huzzah! I am throwing #goatconfetti and laughing.

  9. Justin, you have now made my day extremely special. I laud you! I throw pants at you!
    I am scared about the cannibal dream. That definitely needs to end up in a book!

    @Anita I think I can guess who your guest will be!

  10. Apparently, goats just want to have fun!


    *Runs off to the airport disguised with a trenchcoat, sunglasses and baseball cap*

    *Stands impatiently in line at Security and is made to take off his disguise, which apparently IS NOT LOOKED FAVORABLY ON at airports*

  12. Kalen,
    Whatever you do, DON'T LET THEM FRISK YOU HAIR!

  13. HAHAHA Loved this WHOLE post <3333, I can't stop chuckling over here :)

  14. The idea of underpants with INHUMAN across the ass just makes me happy. I need that.

    Also, I loved my underoos! I was so jealous that they made way more for my brother.

  15. Anita-How in the world did you do that newspaper article?? EPIC! I was laughing out loud and my friend next to me kept asking me what I was reading.
    Justin-Can I just say...You rose above and beyond all our expectations! You and your "Inhuman" panties are my heroes! This was great.

    Now...Kaaaaalen...*looks through binoculars through the airport to find him hiding at a back table in Starbuck's* You're next dude.

  16. JA~ LOL. Right? We've still got Kalen to torture. Now the pressure's all on him cuz he's the only goat guy left.

    Jessie~ Heehee. Thanks. We're just a bunch of silly ninny goats.

    Mandie~ Thank you! I'm so glad. I worry sometimes that people are sick of them. Hee

    Angela~ Thanks for noticing my newspaper! You did of course see your name in the article, right? *giggles*

    Owlgoat~ Justin is officially a hero in #goatsville

    Bethany~ He rocked it, right? And thanks! :)

    Lori~ Thanks for always bearing with my silliness! :)

    Justin~ You sir, are a good sport, and a goat among men. I crown you with the sparkly panty tiara.

    Pony girl~ Heehee. Me thinks the wheel and furry little face comment gave it away. ;)

    Jane~ LOL!! OMGOODNESS, that rox! We need it on a t-shirt. Love that!

    Kalen~ ROFLMAO!!!!!!

    Bethany~ DITTO!!!!!

    Kerri~ Hey twinkie! Poor guy. Can you blame him for not wanting this on his creepy blog? LOL

    Katey~ Bless you for coming over here when I can't get over to your blog. I'm so looking forward to catching up on your happenin's. Always love seeing your face, tho. :)

  17. Suzanne~ there's a place online you can make fake newspaper articles for free! Here:

    And as for Kalen? YEP. Let's turn up the heat with our #goatpeerpressure. It worked on Justin, after all. :)

  18. LOL! Justin is a #bravegoatboy.

    Anita, I was gonna ask about the fake newspaper too but Suzanne beat me to it. :) Thanks for the link! I'm gonna have fun with it.

  19. Cherie aka, sparkly goat~ I can't wait to see what that clever and creative little mind of yours concocts w/the newspaper generator. :)

  20. I have a super important question, Anita: why goats? What is it about that animal that inspires a writing group? Oh, I'm so curious about your answer:)

  21. *dies laughing*

    Thanks Anita for a good laugh to kick off my Thursday & looking forward to the Query Tracker series being resurrected! yay!

  22. Metal filings and burlap? Yikes - worse than a nearsighted bikini waxer with bad aim.

  23. LOL!!! Fun stuff. Panty meme... :D I like the "pain in the ass" answer~ <3
