Homeland Security raids lingerie shop over sports-themed panties

If you had any worries about just how safe the Department of Homeland Security keeps America, worry no longer: DHS just raided a lingerie shop in Kansas City, Missouri, over custom underwear the agents said were in violation of copyright law. The offending garment celebrated the Kansas City Royals' progress in the World Series, reading, "Take the Crown," with the K and C highlighted and linked to imitate the team's logo.

"We just thought it was something funny we could do. But it was so scary," store owner Peregrine Honig told the Kansas City Star. She said she figured her hand-drawn design wouldn't violate any laws.

Fortunately for the rest of us, these panties can no longer endanger the safety of our homeland, as this hardened criminal signed a pledge not to break copyright laws again. --Bonnie Kristian
