Chew on this today: someone has apparently patented what they call a “security underwear device for sexual organs” (i.e., a chastity belt). Is it as horrible as it sounds? I think so. Is it real? It appears to be. How sure am I of that? Not completely, so I wrote to snopes.com (my go-to-site for Internet scams). Since they did not have anything listed on security underwear devices, I e-mailed them and asked what they thought. If they have anything to say on the topic, I’ll be sure and let you know.

So what do you think? Is this for real?

Thanks to Joan Price for the heads-up on this little outrage.
