Pinktober — I mean, October — has been taken over as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a worthy cause that’s opportunistically hijacked to promote everything for 31 days straight. Why, just this morning I received a press release from HerCampus.com about essays that six women wrote about their bras sizes “in honor” of Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Sorry, what does an essay about your 36DD tatas have to do with “honoring” breast cancer again? I’m not the only one skeptical of consumer pink-washing during “Pinktober” … Keep reading »
There are plenty of things to say about golden girl Meghan McCain, 26, who has parlayed being John McCain‘s daughter into a full-time job: She writes a column for The Daily Beast, has written a new book called Dirty Sexy Politics, and has a gig on ABC’s “This Week.” After she called Delaware senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell a “nutjob” this Sunday on “This Week,” Meghan provoked the ire of more hard-line Republicans and their cohorts.
Did they go after her bad manners for calling a public figure a nutjob? Did they go after her family connections? No, they took sexist potshots at her big boobs. Keep reading »
Remember the boob scarf? We know we do. Well, what’s the fun in parading around with a scarf that looks like boobs without a matching boob scarf for your dog? Thankfully, Etsy seller boobs R us has the solution. I am sure this is the canine accessory every dog owner has been looking for. Note: “You can also choose to have Vanilla Cream OR Chocolate colored boobs, with Pink OR Tan nipples!” You can even get your dog’s name on one of the boobs for no extra charge.

Boobies in 3D. How could bra manufacturers have not thought of this earlier? It seems unreal, but Wonderbra just introduced their first 3D breasts billboard in London. Onlookers require 3DD (get it?) glasses to fully enjoy the Full Effect Wonderbra, which claims to boost your girls up another two cup sizes. For us poor souls without the special spectacles, the WonderBra ad is just a slightly blurry image of Brazilian model Sabraine Banando — not that anyone will complain.
Clever, yes, but we’re of the opinion that the less boob-age we see in any dimension in public, the more novel it is in private. [AdRants] Keep reading »
Earlier this summer, the world met Sheyla Hershey of Houston, Texas, who possesses the world’s biggest breasts. Sheyla’s knockers measure in at 38KKK, courtesy of some sketchy-sounding surgery that took place in Brazil because plastic surgery laws there are looser. Alas, Sheyla learned the hard way that carrying around a gallon of silicone in your ta- tas is dangerous when they developed a staph infection. Keep reading »
Giving hope to saggy breasts everywhere, a British bra company, Triumph, has teamed up with a military fitness training school for a “boob camp” workout. How do you tone a body part that’s filled with fat (or silicone!)? The UK’s No.1 Boot Camp and Triumph claim their “boob camp” push-ups and dumb bell presses will tone the muscles around your breasts and help hold ‘em high. This sounds like a B.S. cross-promotional idea to me, but hey, maybe you have seen soldiers with amazing racks.
Do you believe a “boob camp” could actually tone your ta-tas or is this idea a crock? [AudioFuel] Keep reading »
A Finnish doctor is on trial for sexual molestation after using a highly unorthodox method to diagnose a patient. When a 20-year-old woman came into his office complaining of nipple fluid, the doctor says he “used an old midwives trick” to diagnose her. After asking her permission, he sucked on her nipple. Now it’s up to the Finnish Supreme Court to decide if his method was inappropriate. Way to go, Dr. Nipple Sucker, M.D. That’s about as creepy as it gets. [FOX] Keep reading »
Scientists are finally working to remedy a problem that has plagued us big-chested ladies since we hit puberty: sports bras don’t really work for us. Most athletic bras have a shelf that is about as effective at holding the twins in place as a band-aid is on a gaping wound, and the bras with cups that do hold things together are painful, circulation-depriving contraptions that make it hard to breathe, let alone jog. Thank God that “breast biomechanics” — I know, awesome name, right? — at the University of Wollongong in Australia have developed a sports bra prototype that supposedly — gasp! — does its job …

When I was younger, my friends and I used to take Mad Libs and fill in every blank space with dirty words and then laugh at how naughty we were. Using this as a base for my maturity level, you can imagine how happy I was when I came across a Gawker piece about a New York Times article that can be read very differently than intended. The NYT article is about the increase of farmers growing smaller and sweeter watermelons instead of the larger “picnic” watermelons. You can understand when the word “water” is dropped and you are left with just melons, that things get a little silly. Read on to see the best quotes from the story that can be taken the wrong way.
