Goodness, gracious... that pants bomber headline

The sentencing to life imprisonment of 'pants bomber' Umar Farouk Adbulmutallab, who tried to detonate explosives in his underwear on a flight bound from Amsterdam to Detroit, is an opportunity to revisit the Jerry Lee Lewis inspired New York Post headline following his arrest.

The Post news story went on to refer to Adbulmutallab's briefs as “jihad jockeys”, “frighty whities” and "the real hot pants".
