Urban Word Wednesday: Panty Anthem

Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!

Let the panty party continue! After yesterday’s post with underwear a deux, today’s Urban Word keeps the things in full swing as we celebrate of national underwear day (NUD). After you leave here, make sure you keep rocking out with Jenny Hansen. She’s talking panty parades and UNDIE SHOOTERS (need I say more???). She’s also got the dirt on an undie pop-up party with FreshPair (the fahhhbulous peeps that started NUD) in NYC August 22-23, 2012 (never have I wished I was in NYC more).

So….lets get down to urban word business!

Panty Anthem: a song that makes people want to take their panties off.

Examples Of Use:

Hubby and I were at the grocery store last night picking up a few things for the week. We were in the vegetable aisle checking out the lettuce when we had the following conversation.

Me: did you see mine and Jenny’s blog posts today? We are doing a belated celebration of national underwear day which was on August 5.

Hubby: I can’t believe you two missed THAT. But yeah, I saw the vibrating panties. I am getting you a pair for Christmas and we are so doing some kind of James Bond type vlog with them.

Me: nice. That sounds like super duper fun! Maybe I could wear them to the gym and finally have an assisted coregasm. What did you think of the fundies? Would you try a pair with me?

Hubby: I just broke 3 bills this week sweetheart. If you and I tried to slip into a pair of those we’d look like a monkey trying to fawk a football.

*I feigned disappointment – we definitely had people’s attention then*

Me: You know what they say, trying is half the fun. Wait a minute…

*I perk my head up towards the ceiling to hear the radio better*

Me: OMG I LOVE this song! It’s totally MY panty anthem?

Hubby: a panty anthem?

Me: you know…it’s so good it’s making me want to take my panties off!

*Hubby drops the lettuce and grabs my hand*

Hubby: come on, we can find the station in the car!

This is my panty anthem:


What’s yours? Come on…share the wealth…

More blog deliciousness here:



  1. That is a great song. But, it makes me want to dance on the beach, so I’d have at least a swimsuit on. 🙂 I think my panty anthem would be any song by Usher.

  2. prudencemacleod says:

    That song makes me think of dancing; but there is a song… yeah, that’s the one, mmm, think I’ll put it on the player now. Bye, later!

  3. Funny, I imagine that if we were in the same grocery store, I’d end up blogging about the conversation I eavesdropped on. 🙂

    Thanks for blog love – I’m off to check out that swimsuit post, as I posted one of my own today (using vocab that made me think of you 😉 )

  4. You and Hubby definitely need to start doing more James Bond things. Like tiny little microphones and cameras hidden in hats, sunglasses, tie clasps, etc… I think we’d all like to see jaws dropping around the two of you, and hear the giggles and gasps…so work on that, okay? 😉

    My panty anthem? I think I have to go with a golden oldie…Hold On (Eddie Money). I just think that’s a totally sexy song.

    • HAHAHAHA!! Secret hidden cameras would rock. Hubby has often wished he had something mounted to his glasses…it’d be stellar!

      Ohh…off to check it out!

      Oh yes…that drum kick and guitar…and his voice. Total panty remover. LOL!

      • They MAKE glasses with cameras in them! GREAT NEWS!

        My cousin has a pair that he purchased when he started visiting Texas each fall to hunt. He said he wanted to get videos of the wildlife from his deer stand.

        You MUST purchase a pair. Put Blog Heckler Hubby on the line. He’ll agree with me.

  5. Okay, that’s a song we use in Zumba class. You are NOT coming with me if that’s your Panty Anthem. LOL. Perhaps mine is when my husband sings “You Are So Beautiful to Me” in his wonderful, off-key voice. 🙂 Happy Undies Week, Natalie!

  6. Hubby aka The Blog Heckler says:

    I think this just reminds you of our spring Dominican Trip – where there are no panties at all!

  7. I have no words. None. And for a writer, that’s really saying something!

  8. Elena Aitken says:

    Ha ha. I LOVE you two! I would love to see the reaction of people around you when you have these conversations. Classic!

    • LOL!! Oh yes, we tend to get eyebrow-raising looks everywhere we go cause we’re total idiots…pretty much all the time. But we have fun and totally love it so what the hell, right?! LOL!!!

  9. Oh, yeah, don’t pay attention to the looks you might get. Have fun! Though I would have gotten the giggles if I’d been in that produce section! LOL My panty anthem would be an oldie like Luther Vandross’ When I Need You. Smooth and sexy.

  10. Hmm… I’m thinking I’ll play “You’re Beautiful Just the Way You Are” so everyone can feel comfier celebrating. Or this one’s good! 😉 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCJxSMLLsZM

  11. I’ve got it! I know my party anthem song… ‘Raise Your Glass’ by Pink! That song always makes me want to go a little nuts and, ahem, possibly lose my undies. I mean mind! Mind. I meant to type mind. I did. Promise.

  12. Wow, you gals can sure find the strangest stuff. I love it!

    You know if you added national underwear day EVERYWHERE the acronym would be NUDE which seems more appropriate to me somehow. But then again, you wouldn’t need the underwear to begin with if it were all about being nude. Of course, if you think about it, underneath everyone’s clothes we’re all nudists so again, how appropos. Either way. Just saying.

    Anyway, that’s just my brain taking off in its own direction. I have no control over the wanderlust of my brain.

    Can’t say as I have a panty anthem, but I’m going to be on the look-out for it, now that I’ve been made aware. Thanks for sharing.

    Can’t wait for the parade next year. Keep up with the planning process.

    • A MOST excellent point! NUDE it is, at least for this week. 🙂

    • NUDE…LOVE IT!!! Soooo true and I wish I’d have thought of it sooner. LOL!!
      Keep us posted on your panty anthem song selection. LOL!

      I can see it now. Hanging out with hubby and friends. Got some tunes playing in the background. It’s an evening of laughter and fun. And all of a sudden Patricia JUMPS up and yells, that’s it…THAT’S MY PANTY ANTHEM!


  13. I LOVE your anthem.

    I waited to comment until I had an anthem of my own. That was 12 hours ago, and I still have nothing. So, I choose to steal yours. Woot! Beach Party in the undies.

    Blog Heckler Hubby gets to use his Agent 007 glasses/video recorder for the FLASH MOB DANCE on the beach, in the mall, wherever…

    And, yes. I linked back to your comment on the Ben-WA’s. I will henceforth forever type Ben-WAHAHAHA in place of Bwa-haha.

    It’s official. I’m gonna order some – for my Klegels, of course. With strings attached. If questioned, I’ll simply say, “But, my friend Natalie has some and she’s waaaaaay normal.” What harm can a big fat little lie like that do? Right?

    • I am honored to share my panty anthem Gloria – go forth and lose your drawers. LOL!!

      Yes, hubby is going to die when I get him a pair of those glasses/video recorder for Xmas. The perfect gift and a total must-have blog accessory now adays. LOL!!

      Ben-WAHAHAHA!! Let me tell you, it wasn’t so HAHAHAHA when it happened but we can sure laugh about it now. LOL! Thank god. I would definitely recommend the ones with the strings attached and I think the “my normal friend recommended them…” will TOTALLY fly! Just don’t send them to my blog to confirm…LOL!!!

  14. Oh, Natalie, how I’ve missed your posts in my summer-induced hiatus from much blog reading. You had me laughing out loud to the point my oldest child asked what was funny. I couldn’t really explain, to which I got the standard I-don’t-understand-adults look. Between this post and Julie’s, I’m having so much fun. I’m off to read Jenny’s now for the underwear trifecta.

  15. Ooh, love the song! I’d like to be there for one of your talks with the hubby! LOLOLOL!

    • Maybe one of these days we’ll spend the time to learn how to do some kind of vlog so y’all can take part in the fun!! LOL!!

      • See, that’s where the video glasses could help, because you need the spontaneity, too. LOL! Years ago, my sister and I drove across England, from London to Yorkshire and then up into Edinberg. It was a stick shift, and it took both of us to drive that sucker. So I sat in drivers seat and she shifted. I kept wishing there was a camera mounted on the dash, with sound, so that people could see what we saw when they heard what we said about it. We could do a kickstarter to get you the glasses… (grin)

        • O.M.G. Pauline, I WISH you’d have captured some of that on video. I bet those would go viral in 2.5 seconds. LOL!!! It took 2 to dive the stick shift. Love it. HAHAHAHAHA!!!! A kickstarter…hahahaha….I’ll have to track down these glasses and get us a pair. I mean…the fans have demanded it, right?! LOL!!

  16. I love this song! What a great choice for the anthem, Natalie. But only if the national underwear day (week?) party is on a boat or in a mansion as gorgeous as that one in the video. And those two guys must attend, heh.

    I thought it would have been Mr. August singing I’m Sexy and I Know It!
