Oh well, then let us discuss the strange spelling of English, shall we?
after looking through your experiences I would rather not
Its short for "Knickerbockers"
Knikkers are typically short pants, in the US, news boys wore short pants called Knickers or Knickerbockers. Undies over there are called that as a form of slang as to pertaining to what a woman might have beneath her skirt, a short pantaloon tied with a drawstring on each leg and the waist, and looked a bit like a boys short pants. (or knikkers) Somehow, getting into someone's knickers sounds like more fun than getting into their pants. Hummm?
Great program. In britain they're shorts or nickers
Just for kicks... :)
