Last summer I was staying in a rental house. Came back from the beach wearing thongs, turned the shower on took off the thongs and hopped in. I felt a bit tingly but didn't think anything of it until I bumped into the shower tap and got a hell of a shock. Electrician found something shorting through the tap and im lucky I was wearing thongs when I turned the tap on because it didn't even set off the safety switch.
Wow, i hope that electrician gave your earthing and the safety trips a real good check out, What are," thongs" ?

They look rather expandable.

That's the gag reflex.
Your monitor shouldn't gulp down too much all of a sudden.

Well i have done some frolicking, but frolicking then was a different kind of
frolicking, there were certainly no tangas in my day, or may be there was,
but i never saw any.

No, I agree, you don't need to actually wear a tanga (or anything else for that matter), in order to frolick.

Now you must know it is dangerous being naked in the country side, all that
barbed wire, electric fences, muck flies, lord knows you could end up in
hospital with a big lump or something.

Well:
1. Big lump: Can't see what's wrong with that
2. Muck flies: Really, that was low..
3. barbed wire, electric fences: Not into that, I'm afraid.

"Tanga" must have a different meaning in the Netherlands than it does here. In all my catalogs, the "tanga" bottoms cover just slightly more than a thong, not less. Smaller than a thong is a g-string, and, well, those just aren't intended to be worn for long, they're more of a gift wrapping. :wink: :blushing:
