Would you post the following query to Facebook?

I am currently in the market for new underpants.  I have always used tighty-whiteys but as I am undertaking new challenges in life, I expect I will be in need of something more so that I may rise to the occasion.  Would you kindly share with me what your wearing and how you feel about them?
