A father from Swansea has admitted that he owns a pair of underpants that are older than his children.
Dennis Gunt originally bought the pair of kegs from Peacocks back in 1984 and has worn them most days since.
His wife Norma told WalesOnCraic:
“He’s had them since the early eighties but I think I’ve only washed them about six times in total. He says that they’re his lucky pants and that they are the comfiest ones that he has. I bought him some posh ones once for his birthday but he complained that they were chafing his bollocks and went back to his old ones. In all my married years, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him in anything else.”
Dennis said that he wore the same underpants because they were always on the floor next to his bed when he woke up.
“If they weren’t there on the floor, it’d mean that I’d have to go and find some clean ones. It’s easier just to stick the same ones on. The dog’s had them a few times so there are a few holes in them but they’re like an old friend to me. I’d never be without them.”
Wife Norma is hoping to secretly put them in the bin when he’s not looking.
“The only problem with that is that he’s always wearing them. The only time he’s not wearing them is when he’s in bed and I think I’d need a gas mask to touch them.”
