11. The Boehner isn't that big!
The penetration would probably not get past the pubic hair.

4. They have to be clean? How the hell
can they tell if they're dirty or clean until they open the package?

Would they really freak out if someone happened to send a pair smeared with melted chocolate?

:evilgrin:

7. I don't have any panties but I guess I could send him a pair of jockeys
I ran out of toilet paper one day last week and I think I have just the pair for him.

10. Try to get some granny panties -- don't send him good underwear
Mr. Drunky Poo doesn't need to be given good underwear that he can joke about.
