A man has accepted that if he were divorced he would need to increase his average budget of 18 pence per year on underpants purchases.
Peter Thape (44), who has no intention of divorcing, has noticed that he’s been nursing the same six pairs of undies for the best part of nine years.
Thape has acknowledged that his fraying undies are barely up to the job, with either a new potato or the boss occasionally popping out through the worn gusset.
‘Only a happily married man could shamelessly walk the streets in these underpants,’ admitted Thape.
‘Perhaps a divorce would sufficiently inspire the big £3.99 for two pairs purchase,’ pondered Thape.
