Dark Male Underwear Found at WaPo

This morning an urgent note was sent to newsroom staff at WaPo.

Subject line: Found – Available for immediate pickup.

The object at stake? Underwear. More specifically, dark male underwear found on the hallway floor between Karen DeYoung and James Grimaldi‘s desk. The email from Dan Keating, the graphics editor, read as follows:

“Whoever is missing a pair of men’s dark blue-black underwear is welcome to claim them from the hallway floor between Karen DeYoung’s office and James Grimaldi’s desk. No reward is being offered at this time.”

Reaction is varied. But reporters and editors are already in a state of shock.  Book World Editor Ron Charles wrote, “This doesn’t do me much good. Where are the rest of my clothes?”
