Throwing one's panties (Words, Sayings, and Slogans)

"I think he's waiting for you to throw your panties."

A staple of any good rock (or Tom Jones) concert is the throwing of girls' panties to the musicians. This is meant to show that the audience members (probably female, but who knows?) thoroughly appreciate and enjoy the music they're hearing and feel so strongly about it that they must toss up their underwear as a sign of respect. As Keith and Lamb wait for a music store clerk to stop rocking and talk to them, Keith guesses he might move faster were Lamb to engage in this practice and throw his panties. Another aspersion cast on Lamb's masculinity — the poor guy gets no respect.
