  1. Problem could be on my end, but none of the “Buy Here” links work.

  2. Oh I need Batman panties

  3. the guy in the Batman underoos… his thing looks suspicious.

  4. I have two pairs of Batman underoos. Two. From different ladies. Neither of which I talk to anymore. The underoos still work though.
