    He’ll always have a thong in his heart… (Which sounds really uncomfortable!)

    Back in the 1960s-70s in the upper midwest we usually called those flip-flops thongs. And gay meant happy (to us kids anyway). And organic meant a living thing that has/had organs. Funny how terms change.

    It’s not just Aussies that call them “thongs” – I grew up in MN and that’s what we called them as well. ;-)

    Gay still means happy and thongs are what I heard them called in the 190’s in S. Texas.
    I wore them as a youth and stopped. They are rather dangerous to wear in most cases.

    Flip-flops is what you do wearing them!
    Good Movie Oz (1939) reference for that stuck up Cylene girl.

    In my days 70’s we called them thongs for the feet and did damage to the toes. Now I wonder what the song was?

    In Hawaii, they were called “go aheads” ‘cause you can’t back up in them. :-)

    Back in the 60’s, in N. Calif. we called them both thongs and flip-flops.

    I’m in Iowa, and thongs were more expensive than flip-flops. Those were the things that were all rubber, and as they got older, the toe divider would come up from the bottom of the flip- flop and you would have to poke it back down in there, only to have it pop out again! Thongs were made of harder rubber and leather uppers.

    Well I never heard of them before the underwear and would not wear either one (never have). In either case, I’d rather be entirely bare than that (feet or other). I like to be comfortable.

    And Cylene is a witch, no matter how you spell it.

    Thong bathing suits are called "a line for the bacteria to go from your bowels to your vagina. Very dangerous since V’s are bacteria free, like our bladders. Any bacteria in there and it is suffer city for a woman.
    You may feel sexy, but the end product is expensive, painful and damaging.
