Please tell me this is NOT a photo of one of the students at your school....
Actually, I had to stare at this for about 5 seconds before I figured it out. Then I was rather sorry I'd bothered.
I wonder what the deep, Freudian significance of this behavior is.

Actually, it was me up at our property last summer. Wanna join us this summer? Just kidding, I got it in an e-mail, like a lot of the funny stuff I get. And it took me a while to figure out what it was, and I even wear the things......

I assume you mean you wear the briefs, not this style of tank tops..... I hope.
I really hope.

Hope springs eternal, but yes, I meant that I wear them as underwear, not as a shirt of any sort. I've done some bizarre stuff in my life, but NEVER have I cut up a pair of tighty-whities (or greys) to wear as a shirt. I have just a smidge too much fashion sense for that.

When I was a teenager and taking many years of ballet, it was the fashion for a while to cut the feet and crotch out of old pair of tights, then wear them as light-colored sleeves under a tank-top leotard. I guess that was sort of weird, but there was no fly and we never wore them outside the dance studio.
That's the closest I've ever come to a tighty-whitey tank top.

My dad used to wear pantyhose when he went hunting. They were lightweight and kept him warm and didn't bunch up under his clothes like long johns. There's a difference between that, dance class, and out in public. And tighty-whitey looks like she (he)'s out in public.
