Hanky Panky, makers of the World’s Most Comfortable Thong®, today announced a line of lingerie for animal companions.
Life is Poodieful
Henree Orzeck, founder and CEO of Ball Finder (NYSE: BALL), an ingenious app that helps dogs find lost tennis balls, knows a thing or two about work/life balance. “Running a successful business is hard work,” she says, “but that’s no excuse to forgo the simple pleasures of exercise, a good haircut, and nice clothes.” At 14, Henree is as trim and energetic as a pup, running from one meeting to another at the company’s Silicon Alley headquarters without breaking a sweat. “My clothes work for me, like everything else around here. If my Hanky Panky panties weren’t perfectly comfortable, I’d fire them.”
Cat Always Gets What She Wants
In a surprisingly forthright statement to the press, Hanky Panky President and Creative Director Gale Epstein admitted that it was her cat, Sybil, who finally persuaded the designer to take a risk and go to market with lingerie for pets. “Every night when I came home, Sybil would say the same thing to me,” said Gale. “It was ‘meow, meow, meow’ all the time. Finally, I gave in and said, ‘let’s do this.'”

Hot to Trot
“The ladies, they love me,” says Trigger, a 16-year old palomino Morgan and the self-described “bad boy” of Hawk Rise Farm in Kent, NY. “Spring brings flies as well as pheromones. A flymask that is as handsome as it is comfortable is essential for playtime with the mares.”
Trigger, the “bad boy” of Hawk Rise Farm, models Hanky Panky’s new Signature Lace Flymask for Horses in Sweet Mint (style no. 4811, $20 on hankypanky.com).
Happy All Fool’s Day, ya’ll. Or, as the French would say, poisson d’Avril!
