Those of you who are new to More Cowbell might have missed The Undie Chronicles. The regular posse here knows: When the Undie-verse speaks, we will always listen. I had no idea when this began that there were so many hilarious undie-based topics to discuss. Plus it’s Monday, and I like a good Monday belly laugh.
This post is a follow-up to February’s Undie Chronicles post about the U.S. Patent and Trade Office thinking the American public is too puritanical to embrace the word, “ComfyBalls.” (See below.)
I call, “Foul!”
You can click here if you want to add your vote (and I recommend you DO). The site is called Fight For Your Balls and, whether you’ve got ’em or not, this is about discrimination more than the actual “man sack.”
Why can Duluth Trading Company have “Ballroom Jeans” (which my guy says are super-cozy) here in the U.S. and this Norwegian company can’t sell ComfyBalls? Duluth can sell the “Crouch without the Ouch” slogan, but ComfyBalls has to sell in the U.S. with naming conventions like “McBalls.”
If you plan to fight this discriminatory practice, here’s a tweet from a ComfyBalls evangelist, Allan, showing you the hashtags for the cause.

Allan also says:
Another @comfyballs observation: their “RHT” (”reduced heat transfer”) is no BS; compared to my usual underwear, feel 10x less sweaty now.
[I don’t know that I want to know that much about what’s in Allan’s pants, but the internet is about sharing information, right?]
Besides spreading the “Undie Word,” y’all can go vote on alternate names for these Illegal Underpants!
There are tons of suggestions already at Fight For Your Balls. Here are the ones I split my sides over:
- Free Willy
- E.Y.B. (Embrace Your Balls)
- Great Balls of Fire
- Cool Beans
- Hot Rocks
My opinion? They should just stick with the original (awesome!) name, or call it ComfyB*lls if they must be politically correct on this.
What is your opinion? Do you have a favorite “alternate name?” Enquiring minds LOVE to know these things here at More Cowbell!
