Robert Crumb’s boxers


The Guardian presents a slideshow of celebrity undergarments, more or less expertly decorated for the owners and offered in a charity auction on Ebay from 8 pm today onwards.

Next to the original John Major pant by cartoonist Steve Bell, the crude designs of Daniel Day Lewis and Emma Thompson’s huge spandex affair, our attention naturally went to Robert Crumb’s boxers;  The newspaper described them thus : 

Cartoonist Robert Crumb‘s pants could not be more Crumb-like: huge, unironed and blue as the man himself, with a self-portrait saying, “This is sick.”

It can hardly get any more ephemere than this.

(“Thanks” to Sean for bringing this to my attention…)
