What The Hell Is “Boob Camp”?

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 »

Turn On The Light By Blowing In This Ear

OK, this is weird. If you really, really hate The Clapper, you will probably love Turn Me On, a light switch created by designer Chris Haines. Instead of flipping a wall switch, you saunter over to this molded, wall-mounted ear, blow in it, and the lights are turned on (or off). Personally, we find this particular light switch to be totally freaky. It looks like it wants you to whisper sweet nothings in its ear. Or the wall wants to know all your secret fantasies. Or your apartment is listening in on your conversations. [NOTCOT] Keep reading »
