There's no denying that we live in a golden age of technology, but when writer and cartoonist Kate Leth was browsing Amazon she noticed a suggested item that is making her, and a lot of other people wonder if science has gone too far.
The ad for a pair of male boxer briefs from a Chinese company suffered from a bad case of "lost in translation", but the inexplicable features, odd diagrams and impossible anatomy weren't likely to make sense in any language.
Bad translations aside, Twitter first tried to figure out exactly what was going on this guy's boxers.
Next, people tried to decipher the impossible anatomical mysteries.

For years I thought I was weird because of the yellow dotted outline on my genitalia— Peter Madden (@petermadden) April 22, 2018
There is so much I don’t understand about penii.— Stefanie the First of Her Name Queen of twitte®👑 (@jbelcap) April 22, 2018
Eventually though Twitter came around and the amazing list of "features" made believers of them all.
We're getting underwear with pockets now and women can't find jeans that can hold their phones. What a time to be alive— Israel Martin 🇲🇽 (@IsraelMartin87) April 22, 2018
We all like a bit of "Scrotal Independent Space" in our lives!— Pete [insert witticism here] Knight (@Pete_Knight_) April 22, 2018
I like the academic sound of "morphologic correction"— Michelle Tabares (@Wigglybottom) April 22, 2018
These sound good, especially the three dimensional bag area— 🌳MattyMcMattface🌳 (@theMattyKakes) April 22, 2018
Although many seemed sold on the product, Twitter agreed, the pictures were just about all they could handle.
That's probably more information than I need about a pair of briefs. Hopefully there's no instructional video.— David Mattoon🌀 (@DaveMattoon) April 22, 2018
