The gas mask panty is one of the winners of the Nobel prize this year. While ridiculous and hilarious at face value, it has far more going on below the, duh, uh, waistline. Ha ha. Ha? Not really. Give it some serious thought.
Lenaehey Odnarbhey, who lives in the South side of Chicago, got her start as a scientist in her basement, when she witnessed the devastating effects of mixing chlorine and ammonia in a toilette bowl. She noticed, among other things, that women were wearing panties that may have been lacy but were certainly not life-saving. She suffered horribly!
At the Nobel awards ceremony, Odnarbhey demonstrated her invention in the ladies room, to a rapidly moving, and growing reception line. She showed how this could have prevented her from breathing in chlorine gas as a child. (This explains her lack of mental prowess) She graciously gave pink gas masks (each of which can turn into two panties) to each man who entered the ladies room.
She demonstrated how quickly she could change from wearing the mask to wearing one of the two panties that she extracted from the filter compartment. The filter is simply wrapped in panties.
At one point, she got her legs crossed and chlorine gas escaped from her buttocks, but other than that, the masks worked well.
