The Mansy

Did anyone else notice a certain full page ad in the last issue of the Improper Bostonian? Let me refresh your memory- it was for a male one-piece yoga suit named The Mansy:


The Mansy was the talk of the workplace all last week. Laughs were had, jokes were made, and photoshop pranks were threatened. The Mansy was deemed both ridiculous and obscene.

Then, I read the fine print: "Available in limited quantities, April 1st."

The Mansy was an April Fool's joke! Turns out Lululemon is a Canadian apparel company that makes yoga gear for people who shop at Whole Foods and drive hybrids. (I only mock them because I don't have enough money to be them.)

Well played, Lululemon. You may have outdone my Ryan Seacrest story.

Whoaaaa... my ex-girlfriend is a sales VP for lululemon. She just got a lot cooler, I think. Damn, too bad I screwed the pooch on that one.

Hi-larious. Too bad lululemon is muy, muy spendy.

I'm glad you posted that! I saw that ad a couple weeks ago and thought "seriously?". I guess I didn't read the fine print. That is too funny. I'm glad it was just a joke!

It scares me every time I open my blog, though. I will have to post something else to bump it down the page a bit.

The Mansy may be a joke, but the Borat mankini is available for sale: http://www.firebox.com/product/1991

It really does exist, as we have one in the office!
