This could very well be the most exciting scientific breakthrough item that we have ever featured in the Gift Guide. “Under-Ease” is a revolutionary new air-tight underwear that contains a charcoal filter, which filters out noxious bodily odors before they can escape into the atmosphere and be blamed on the dog.
This product was invented by a Pueblo, Colo., man named Buck Weimer. In a deeply moving interview with the Denver Post, Buck revealed that he first dreamed of this concept one evening after a Thanksgiving dinner, when he and his wife, who suffers from an inflammatory bowel syndrome, were lying in bed, and she cut loose with a near-nuclear blast. Lying there, eyes watering, Buck resolved to do something, and, after years of research, he perfected and patented the design for Under-Ease.
We cannot think of a more thoughtful gift than this for that friend or loved one who cannot figure out why people keep leaving the room. Under-Ease: It reeks of the holiday spirit.
