Please. This IS serious.

I am seeking phrases, quips, songs, puns, in regard to Lingerie. You know - corsets, bustiers, teddies, garter-belts. This is for a writing assignment which is due in ten days.

Thank you all.

I'm afraid I can't be much help with the original question, but the song about the chastity belt (DMcG's third link) reminds me. . . .

The Lord of the Castle was leaving for the crusades, and in the manner of many of that "beknighted" age, he locked his beautiful young wife in a chastity belt. It did occur to him, however, that he might fall to the blow of a Saracen's sword while on his holy mission, and it would certainly not be fair to his young wife to leave her thus constrained for the rest of her life should he never return. He racked his brain, trying to decide who he could trust to leave the key with. At length, he decided to leave it with an Old Family Retainer, an eighty-year-old servant, old, weak, and doddering, a trusted menial who had been with the family for as long as he could remember.

The Lord of the Castle and his troops set out upon the road. They had not gone for more that a few miles when they saw a cloud of dust behind them. They stopped to see who or what it was. Soon the Old Family Retainer hove into view, running as fast as his spindly legs could carry him.

"Milord! Milord!" shouted the Old Family Retainer, "you left the wrong key!!"

Joke that only wortks (if at all!) in a Black Country accent:

Enoch says to Eli, "I've gorra new job, I'm a corsetier."

Says Eli "Don't be daft, that's a woman's job, measurin' ladies up for undergarments."

"No, I work down at the local cinema. I look at peoples tickets, and if they'm in the wrong seat, I say 'Yo corsetier'!"

Thank you - I am picking up some material. But could never use the joke above.

I like your translation service. This is that joke, translated into German and Italian and back to English.

Joke, that it is only this, wortks (to the occurrence!) in a black accent of the earth:

Enoch says to Heliums, "has new job of gorra, I is more corsetier."

Heliums do not say "are daft, that one are the job of one woman, measurin ' getlteman here over for the underwear."

"Not, job down on the local cinematografo. I consider the programs of people and if they' the m in the wrong center, I say ' Yo more corsetier '!"

To the tune of Winter Wonderland

Lacy things the wife is missing, didnt ask permission, I'm wearing her clothes, her silk pantyhose, walking round in womens underwear.

In the store there's a teddy. little straps like spaghetti, that hold me so tight, like handcuffs at night, walking round in womens underwear,

In the office theres a guy named Melvin, he pretends that I am Murphy Brown, he'll say are you ready, I'll say no man, just wait until our wives are out of town,

Later on if you wanna, we can dress like Madonna, put on some eye shades, join the parade, walking round in wmoens underwear,

Repeat fisrt verse.

Murphy Brown was the alleged prostitute in the Hugh Grant "scandal"

Around her leg she wore a bright red garter,
She wore it in the Springtime and in the month of May.
And if you ask her why the hell she wore it,
She'll say its for her lover in the Field Artillery.

Two women I know went shopping for lingerie. One was especially interested in a certain negligee. After eyeing it for a while she said, "That would make a nice pile," The other woman looked at her quizzically, but before she could phrase her question the first woman continued, "on the floor by the bed."

The best lingerie lasts a long time, as it isn't worn for very long at a time...(well, unless it is ripped in wild abandon)

of course, tastes vary WIDELY in what constitutes 'best'...I personally do not care much for elaborate stuff with lots of black lace borders and purple satin panels...I think "guilding the lily" is an apt phrase.

YMMV

And from Joel Mabus comes the ultimate recommendation:

I tell ya', Duct Tape, it's the answer,
        In a little silver roll;
It will mend the widest crack;
        It will patch the deepest hole;
I put Duct Tape on my jeans,
        When they start to fall apart;
And since my baby's left me,
        I've got Duct Tape on my heart.
