: : buttons on your underwear/any one know the meaning?

: Small round fastening devices affixed to your undergarments, maybe? Perhaps a litle more context would help us see, rather than solve, the mystery.

I knew a guy from Connecticut who would almost always say "sew buttons on your underwear" if you said "so what?" to him. I just assumed it was some nonsense reply to a rhetorical question, so I never asked him what it meant.
