Supporting Cast

Hot-Shot Underwear

German policewomen are to be issued with bullet-resistant bras. The new underwear was developed as a second barrier of defence after normal bras were found to cause injuries while on duty. About 3000 front-line women police officers must wear the bras on duty and have been allotted three each.

FOOTNOTE: Captain’s hook.

That ends copping a feel I suppose!

Lee said...

Good lord! Those things don't sound at all comfortable. I hope they really do save lives if they insist on adding this insult to injury.

Keep Smiling!

Carol said...

I have a few that I'm sure wouldn't let any bullets through!

David...you're too much.

(you, too, mushy!!)

Betsy said...

I think I'd like to know how the regular bras caused injury!

Steph said...

Ach du lieber! Kugelsichere Büstenhalter!

Charles Gramlich said...

Why aren't the men told to wear bullet proof jock straps?

Victoria said...

What a hoot! I cannot help but to visualize a "Wonder Woman" type of image of the police women in their new golden 1950's style pointy bras. Not only are the new bras bullet proof, but they can actually shoot bullets too! A double busted gun, that with good aim and the proper chest thrust, could knock down two criminals simultaneously! The police term "busted" would take on a whole new meaning!

A very brassiere incident.

Louise said...

You have to wonder if they are comfortable and why only 3. Sounds like frequent laundry to me. And where do you find these stories?

Bubba's Sis said...

A titillating story, indeed.

Yeah, I've threatened several of my own bras with an ASBO (Anti-social Behavioural Order). Darn things are vicious.
