COMING SOON TO THE OLYMPICS

A shopping centre has been slammed for staging a competition to see how quickly contestants could unhook women's bras with one hand.

I didn't know it was possible to do with one hand. I can barely do it with two.

AM I having deja vu or was this posted at some point? If so, let me repeat this:

But a spokesman for the Modern Development shopping mall defended the competition which he said was to promote underwear awareness.

"The workings of a women's bra are a mystery for many men - this activity helped more people understand bra culture and explore its secrets," he said.

If I correctly remember, the Pythons had a similar competition in which upper class twits were required to perform a bra removal from a manakin.

In the same tournament, one of the contestants managed to run over himself with a car.

Right, Mitch - the Upper Class Twit of the Year competition.

The mistake was running this at a shopping mall. Bra removal contests should happen at drive-in theaters, as nature intended.

What?? no front-clasped bras??

What? No front-loaders?

Bah! Amateurs!!
*first in line for the Blog's version of this contest*

Padraig, you're dating yourself. Have you tried to find a drive-in theater recently?

Don't women burn their bras anymore? Made things so much more user-friendly.

I hope this becomes a winter Olympic sport. Just sayin'.....

Souixie: I was about to say "Great minds think alike", but I'm not sure that "great" is the operative word here...

Also, your post wasn't up yet when I punched in mine.

I hear ya, Ford79...

S'ok, Lairbo. I was just thinking of the blog boys wanting to see a picture of that. I'm supportive that way.

So's yer bra.

"...the competition was won by a woman:
I didn't expect to win - maybe it was because I get so much practice in my everyday life."

I'd have won too, trustf8. I've mastered the unclasping of the bra with one hand whilst driving.

Siouxie: Isn't that part of the Florida Drivers License test?

There are a few drive-in theaters around, but all they show is giant tarantula movies. They figure nobody pays any attention anyway.

p.s. Siouxie, it's supposed to be somebody ELSE's bra. Although maybe they'll give you your own category, like they did for Punkin.

This guy's style is all wrong. One has to do perform this trick while facing the subject. Preferably with tongue halfway down her throat.

Maybe he was harvesting rice.

OC, such a romantic!

pad, if you had your boobs trapped ALL day, you'd learn to unleash them by the time you've reached your driveway. I'm sure most women would agree with me.

^ Absolutely ;)

Relase the Kraken(s)!

Jeez, here in Michigan the legislature just got done outlawing texting while driving, and now they gotta worry about this ??


"Eight women stood in a line on a stage, wearing only a bra and a face mask above the waist..."

Where else do they wear face masks in China?

Warning: may cause hang-overs.

I wondered the same thing Howard. Usually I just unhook my own bra. I'm helpful that way.

Second in line behind Allen. I've been training for this competition since 9th grade.

I was always impressed by the women who take off their bras without removing their blouses. I've witnessed the act a number of times but I am still mystified by whatever mechanics that make it possible.

Easy-peasy, Wvplantman. I've even put one ON without removing my top.

I love when wimmins talk about what they can do with their breasticles.

Wvplantman, it's easy! You just pull the straps down after unhooking and pull one strap through your sleeve then the other and voila! You can pull it off. Try it sometime.

Even easier
(& somewhat sleazier)
We never falter
With a halter.
They do the trick
& the nice surprise is:
They come off quick
When the 'occasion arises'.

Thanks for the helpful instructions NC. Perhaps my mind lost focus on the mechanics part when the feat was performed previously. I am willing to make the attempt, but will need a volunteer?

Didn't Penn Jillette do that on stage once?

Wvplantman, Here ya go!

Siouxie. Appreciate it, but it looks too much like a WV family reunion. The blouses have to stay on!

You just pull the straps down after unhooking and pull one strap through your sleeve then the other and voila! You can pull it off. Try it sometime.

Bah! A real woman can unhook her bra just by shrugging her shoulders and then snagging it with her thumb and tugging it out her sleeve.

On the other hand...even I have to use three fingers.
