Sheriff Joe selling pink underwear with Spanish print
Joe Arpaio began issuing pink underwear to inmates more than 15 years ago to cut down on theft
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio began issuing pink underwear to inmates more than 15 years ago to cut down on theft. He began selling them to the public after speaking about them on national television.
The versions that went on sale Monday are imprinted with "Vamos Jose!" The original shorts, also $15, feature a sheriff's star and a "Go Joe" logo.
"Vamos" translates to "We go" in English. A similar-sounding word, "Vamanos," means "Let's go!" in Spanish. A more accurate translation of "Go Joe!" would be "Andale, Jose!"
