Dear Lulu:

Thank you for inventing the yoga pants I requested. I'll take two in every colour. 
 Yours truly, Rihanna

Yes, I was going to make fun of the Lululemon see-through yoga pants recall, but then I thought: "Where's the challenge?" Actually, no. That's a lie. What really happened was that I saw Twitter was ablaze with cheeky tweets that are much cleverer than anything I could cobble together on short notice (did I mention that I am leaving for Bermuda? Packing my see-through underpants even as we speak!), so I thought I'd just brazenly steal the best of them and post them here for your enjoyment. No, no, don't thank me ... Now, to begin:

  • Lululemon recalled their yoga pants for being too sheer. The male Lululemon executives are still waiting to hear what the problem is." @michelleisawolf

  • Lululemon's see-through pants problem causes stock to drop, also severe disappointment in guys who always take back row in yoga class." @laurengoode

  • Trying to convince wifey my browser history for "see-through yoga pants" is research for investing in Lululemon's stock" @sachedad

  • @lululemon is recalling black yoga pants for being too revealing. Isn't that why we decided to wear them in the first place?" @lisakoopgarcia

  • Yoga pants that leave nothing to the imagination recalled for leaving nothing to the imagination." @gillianburnett 

Editor's note: See-through yoga pants? Goddamit! Why didn't I think of that?
