Bowties are cool, Bowties on Doctor Who Boxers less so

What is it with Doctor Who branding and weird garments? Well, you could cosplay as the Tenth Doctor in Pajamas last week, now this week your unmentionables can dress up as Eleven. Mother of God.

I know this sort of casual-cosplay thing is in at the moment for nerdy fashion (just look at all the cosplay hoodies I've posted about before!), but I think taking that approach to undergarments might be especially odd. I mean, look at them. It's fancy dress for your butt and junk! That's just... bizarre. Especially the prescient placing of The Doctor's iconic bow tie. It's almost like a target, or an 'X' marks the spot. Do we really need bow ties to highlight where peoples crotches are? NO, NO WE DO NOT DOCTOR WHO MERCHANDISE MAKERS.

If you're unsatisfied at these Eleven-themed boxers, there are also 'Christmas Sweater' themed ones, because christmas sweaters on everything but actual sweaters are also hot right now:

Which are still kind of weird, but not weird in the way 'here's a bow tie right over my wang' is. Both of these will set you back $18 apiece.

Still, I guess they're not as creepy as those old pants with Tom Baker's face glaring out of the crotch.

OK, I'm not gonna go into the whole business with the boxers, I just need to inform the world about something. And I'm sorry, I really am, but here it is: bowties aren't really cool. You can't trust everything the Doctor says, you know. I mean, have you tried fish fingers and custard?!?? And look at the way River reacted when the Doctor claimed that fezzes are cool. So no, bowties are not cool.
