Where there’s a wedgie, there’s a way … to Hollywood.
This year, 8-year-old twins Jared and Justin Serovich were working each other over with the schoolyard bully’s staple when their mother, Julie, caught them in the act and took them to task.
Julie’s partner, Judy Kimberly, sarcastically suggested that someone should invent wedgie-proof underwear.
The boys, good students who excel at science and math, took the challenge seriously.
They created the “Rip Away 1000” for the central Ohio competition of the 2007 Invention Convention — and earned an invitation to The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
