Muni Riders Debate: What is a pussy bow, anyway?

You see a lot of weird stuff on Muni, and some of them you can’t even begin to describe. This morning, @spiegelmama tweeted about a mystery item that defied definition for some of us.

Do you know what a pussy bow is? We polled our fellow Muni riders to find out: without Googling it, define “pussy bow.”

Muni Diaries Jeff says:
1. a bow worn in the crotch area
2. a naked woman with her pubes in a bow
3. a bow (doesn’t matter where it’s worn) that looks like a vagina

BrokeAss Stuart says: I have no idea. But I think I want one.

Muni rider Matt says: “it is the worst piercing ever.”

BART Diaries Ed says: “Like a decorative barette or something for one’s lady area.”

Muni rider Johnny Tripod says: “A bow given when the skirt-wearing bow-er has forgotten to put on her underwear. Oops!”

Muni rider Aaron says: “More complicated version of the g-string?”

Rider Pozu says: “Personally, I don’t care for pussy bows. I like the possibility of a revealing if fleeting glance at her charms. I hope that doesn’t give it away.”

Sorry to disappoint, but according to Wikipedia, a pussy bow is “a style of neckwear often associated with women’s blouses and bodices. It takes the form of a bow tied at the neck, similar to those that used to be tied around kittens’ and cats’ necks.”

For example, here is Margaret Thatcher wearing a pussy bow blouse.
