    A Cincinnati-area family got a smelly surprise when they opened a punching bag they purchased earlier this year.

    Joe Heckel said he and his son were moving a TKO brand heavy punching bag from their garage to the basement when they decided to see what was inside in case the bag later leaked. But Heckel said that instead of sand or plastic pellets, he found the bag full of men's and women's underwear, some of it used.

    "(There were) bras, thongs and bathing suits. We could not believe there were clothes inside instead of sand," he said.

    Heckel said the smell was "bad, real bad."
    On Thursday, a company representative saw Heckel's story on a Houston Web site and called him.

    Heckel said Thursday that the representative told him that the underwear in the bag was a "quality problem" that they were dealing with, and that the people who had made the decision to put underwear in the bags had been fired.

    That was the funniest part of the whole story. And how do you get that much underwear. Was it the underpants gnomes from South Park?
