DHS Raids Kansas City Boutique over Royals-Themed Panties

The Kansas City Royals made the playoffs this season for the first time since 1985, when they won the World Series. So it’s been 29 years since Royals fans have seen their beloved team with a viable chance to compete for the Commissioner’s Trophy. One Kansas City boutique owner was so excited that she would make a bunch of Royals-themed undergarments. But that didn’t fly with the Department of Homeland Security.

Peregrine Honig designed the “KC Take the Crown” underwear in honor of the team’s World Series run. She told the Kansas City Star that two DHS agents showed up to her boutique and told her that the panties violate copyright laws. The agents then confiscated the illegal undergarments, placed them in an official DHS bag, and forced her to sign a statement pledging to not use the team’s logo.

On the bright side though, Honig’s business partner said the agents were nice, and “felt like they were kicking a puppy.” Or something.

If you wanted to buy the panties, you’re out of luck because they’ve been taken down from the shop’s website.
