Design Award Winner: 4th Amendment Underwear

Now there’s a way to protest those intrusive TSA X-ray body scanners without saying a word. Underclothes printed with the 4th Amendment in Metallic Ink. Let them know they’re spying at the privates of a private citizen. The 4th Amendment to the US Constitution is readable on TSA body scanners.

From the designers:

4th Amendment Wear made a statement without having to say a word. It’s what we considered ‘technological Judo’ – it used the very act of invading someone’s privacy to communicate a message that questioned how far Americans were willing sacrifice that sense of privacy. It didn’t outright condemn the search – it just raised questions. It gave the wearer a sense of individual liberty to be able to express their concerns, while not causing a disturbance.”

Yes, this truly appeals to my sense of humor – and provokes limitless ideas of variations on the theme. Some of which aren’t even obscene.

Thanks, Ursarodinia

    awesome – I’ve avoided taking any flight that forces me to land in the US but if I do, I will wear something like this just in case. Asshole alert! inscribed in the same metallic ink perhaps?

    To quote a great protest song…..”And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day, I said fifty people a day ……. And friends they may thinks it’s a movement.”
