Author: Betty Miles

Everyone knows what it's like to be a regular kid who goes to school and plays baseball, but how does it feel to be a kid who models underwear?

From Kid to Undies Model

Ten year-old Larry Pryor is waiting to catch the bus when two peeps approach him. He freaks out because he thinks they're going to kidnap him, but finds out they're talent scouts who have just chosen him to be in their next TV commercial! Larry's thrilled about the fame and fortune and can't wait to become a TV star - until he realizes he has to model underwear!

A Social Disaster

Larry thinks underwear is an unspoken subject - everyone wears it, but no one talks about it. Now that he has to model it on national TV, he's mortified to think what his friends will think! Larry tries hard to keep it a secret, but when he keeps missing baseball practices in order to film underwear commercials, he decides the truth has to come out, much to his embarrassment!


The Bottom Line

The best thing about The Secret Life of the Underwear Champ is that it teaches peeps a great lesson about peer pressure and how to deal with it. Sure, modeling underwear isn't the coolest thing for a 10 year-old kid, but as Larry learns, it's really not a big deal.

    I think that there have become to many ways of identifying as a gender. Personally if we could the less amount of terms that people have to memorize the better. Yes you might identify as more than one gender but after like the 15 term it just becomes too confusing. It's unfortunate that I have to say this but I get confused between one term and another even though they might be very similar I am totally supportive as identifying otherwise but it has become a little too much for the average person to comprehend

You know, 'cause they're on me for most of the time, they barely feel like they're there (unless they're sliding down or I run into something and hit them, I don't feel them. They're, like, a part of me now). that happens to me sometimes too!

    "Well... Maybe... your related to this 'Ink' in some way?" Now that I thought about it, Paperjam did look a little like Ink... But that one faded memory was hardly something to go on. ​(("I-I like baking... We could make cupcakes or something..."
