My bra is good for a lot of things

So yesterday some really bored 15 year old girl wanted a way to tell the cute boys in her class that she had just gotten her first sexy bra. I bet it was light pink and black lace trimmed. Anyway, she posted it on her face booked status like so

Slutty McSlutterton light pink and black lace trimmed

How does one get away with this? By sending an e-mail telling all your girlfriends to also post the color of their bra as their status and to not tell any guys what it is about (so coy, the little ones). Why would the friends agree to do this? Because it is for breast cancer awareness of course! My friend Slutty, she is the smart one too.

What annoyed me about this whole thing is that it caught on like a California wild fire. Why do my grown and knowledgeable about how the world works friends think posting a color would do anything to help the fight against breast cancer? It doesn't. Maybe there are people out there wearing bras who don't realize that they have breasts and are thus affected by breast cancer but I seriously doubt that.

What would really help the fight against breast cancer? If everyone of those women made themselves an annual gyno/mammogram appointment and got a friend to make one too.
Or if every woman who shared her bra color with the world donated the cost of that bra to
or a number of worthwhile charities. Last year my friends raised over $2500 for breast cancer charities so you and your red bra can go suck it.

So help me spread the word and the next time one of your friends asks you to repost something to save a puppy ask them how that works, and offer this suggestion - go to the pound and save a fucking puppy!

Update: This was so riveting that Washington Post weighed in

I have to admit that all day yesterday I was perplexed as to why so many of my friends were sending out colors on their status message. Today I figured it out and posted my color but not before giving Lucy and Rose (left and right boob) a good squeeze. I gave each girl about 2 minutes of undivided attention. Have to say, it was a pretty nice feeling to not discover anything unusual.

Rebecca, If I had prizes to give then you would get one. That's what all those crazy bra wearing fools should have been doing.

Come on, Jen. You know you have the fanciest, most sparkily-est bras around (probably with bells on them) and just didn't want to show up the rest of us!

I posted my color and prayed for my 3 friends battling breast cancer. I'll donate again next time you and your group walk!
