`Wallet Butt' Epidemic Finally Squashed

Is this the world's thinnest wallet?

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Finally, there’s a cheeky cure for the widespread, unsightly epidemic known as “wallet butt.”

“Wallet butt” happens to everyone. It’s that ugly bulge that forms in the back pocket of your pants when you stuff a big, bulky wallet in there.

Luckily, there’s a little something called “All-Ett Billfold,” the world’s thinnest wallet.

The wallet is made from ultra-light materials designed to hold everything – including 30 credit cards, cash, receipts, and pictures – while still staying slim.

All-Ett sales rep Bridget Muscat says the creator of the wallet suffered from sciatic nerve damage after sitting on a fat wallet for so long – not to mention major “wallet butt.”

Since then, the innovative product – available in various styles on thinnestwallet.com – has saved thousands of butts from embarrassment.

Muscat says they get lots of emails from happy wives who no longer have to worry about their husbands’ bulky behinds.
