Goodbye, Wedgies!

The wedgie. Your worst high school fear. Or one of the worst, at least.

But you can kiss your fears goodbye. According to an Ananova article, eight-year-old twin inventors have developed wedgie-proof underpants.

Jared and Justin Serovich, from Los Angeles, call their creation the Rip Away 1000.

The waistband of the pants is held on by velcro and comes away in a bully's hands if a wedgie is attempted.

"When the person tries to grab you like the bully or the person tries to give you a wedgie they just rip away," Justin explained on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The project got the boys to the finals of a central Ohio invention competition earlier this year, followed by the TV appearance.

Finally, there is hope for American Innovation.
