Booby Trap: The Ultimate Lifesaver!
“The only gossip I’m interested in is things from the Weekly World News: Woman’s bra bursts, 11 injured. That kind of thing.” —Johnny Depp
With all due respect to Christian Dior, I think Johnny Depp is in the right on this one, as today’s Observations from the Tub brings you this headline: German Woman Saved From Bullet By Bra.
Seems a German tourist unwittingly put herself in the middle of a boar hunt in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania while bike riding with her husband. The bullet struck her in the chest, but was deflected away by the underwire on her bra. I don’t know what she paid for her booby trap, as I like to call brassieres, but whatever amount she dished out, it wasn’t enough. A bra as a lifesaving device. Wow.
I couldn’t make this up if I tried.
Now, to get even freakier, guess what I found when I Googled to hunt down the story I just shared? A second story detailing a similar incident, this one taking place in Brazil back in February. The headline for that one reads: Woman’s Life Saved By Her Bra After She Was Hit By A Bullet.
Two different women, different nationalities, on two different continents, within six months of each other—SAVED BY THE BRA! Words to live by, if ever there were any. Looks like the old booby trap was designed for some serious business.
See you Monday for Pawsitive Pondering! Have a great weekend—and don’t forget to wear your booby trap, ladies! Gentlemen, you might consider a wardrobe modification, you know, under the circumstances. 😉
