    Did you not have the kid's taunt - "liar, liar, knickers on fire",  and for a guy getting too angry and behaving like an emotional woman "keep your knickers on, love"   ??

      It's "liar, liar, pants on fire" in the US.

      I have heard "keep your knickers on" and "don't get your knickers in a twist" but possibly only from British tv/movies. I watch quite a few of them. smile

    If one is pro snickers, does that make one anti knickers?

      recommend1posted 6 years agoin reply to this

      No.  A pro's knickers are made of asbestos.

    And of course, knickerbockers are another garment altogether - like long shorts (or short trousers).
    Anyone remember the pop song "Leap up and down Wave your knickers in the air"? Was it Jonathon someone sang it? The guy was big at the time producing music for others.

      I don't remember that song. But d'you remember when Tom Jones fans used to throw their knickers on the stage?

      1. SimeyC profile image96
        SimeyCposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        My claim to fame - Tom Jones was born in a town 5 miles from where I lived in Wales - his mum lived 5 doors down from me. Tom Jones used to frequent our local pub and occasionally brought Shirley Bassey with him.

        He is a down to earth guy and very humble - when he was in the pub he used to joke with us about his collection of Knickers!

            I used to frequent many a pub in Caerphilly in my youth! I was over 18 honest! LOL

            As for Ponty - well as a life long Ponty rugby fan I simply had to test the beer in all the pubs in Ponty....

            ...can't remember the name now, but I always ended up playing darts in the pub right by the old bridge!!!

              I too was over 18, honestly :S, but that's a loooooong time ago lol

              How long ago did you leave South Wales? Maybe we've been in the same pubs at the same time tongue tongue lol

    kmackey32,

    You probably also didn't realize also that thongs in Australia are worn on the feet, not the other type similar to knickers lol

    1. kerryg profile image87
      kerrygposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Thongs can be a type of shoes in the US, too. I think it depends on region. Out of curiosity, do you have a separate name for the underwear type?

  7. Hollie Thomas profile image60
    Hollie Thomasposted 6 years ago

    Actually, we use the term toe thongs in the UK.
