TINY EMERGENCY UNDERWEAR YOU CARRY IN A TIN THAT TRANSFORMS INTO BRIEFS WHEN YOU ADD WATER
A company has started selling underpants in a tin which ensure that you can never be caught without a spare pair of underwear. The pocket-sized unisex briefs are compressed in a metal case which is just 2.5 inches wide, small enough to fit in a pocket. The garment is intended for partygoers who stay up all night, as well as campers, travelers and cautious types who want a replacement pair just in case. When needed, the user just drops the folded-up underpants in a glass of water for a few minutes until they have fully expanded. The light cotton material dries in around five minutes and is elasticated to fit up to a 30 inch waist. The product can be bought online for $4 at a variety of novelty stores.
“THE SIMPSONS” TO KILL OFF ICONIC CHARACTER

The Fox animated series' executive producer Al Jean would not give away the victim's name while speaking about his plans for the show's 25th season, which started on Sunday. He told Canada's Sun News: "I'll give you a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won't say who it is." However, there have been 25 Emmy winners for The Simpsons. Previous victors include Sideshow Bob (Kelsey Grammer), Princess Penelope (Anne Hathaway) and Marge's mom Jacqueline (Julie Kavner).
