Has it come to this, then?

Thanks for this go to Franklin. Although once you read it, you will perhaps NOT thank Franklin for calling this to our attention. Whenever a craft project starts out with a used bra, you're in big trouble.

Why was Franklin looking for projects using bras?

I mean, if he wasn't looking for them, how would he have found that in the first place?

I'm speechless.

Tell me again how making a heinous bra-purse helps women with breast cancer?

Bridget said...

Oh Lord, another Breast Cancer Awareness piece o' crap (using the polite term here). I'll take the pink needles over this any day. And that's saying a lot ...

Thinking about this in relation to M-H's post wondering why bras have little bows or roses on them (http://manainkblog.typepad.com/witty_knitter/2006/12/a_random_questi.html).

In general, I don't support medical charities. But then I live in a country with public health care and figure the government gives lots of money to medicine and medical research. I'm also rather opposed to fundraising gimmicks -- product, walks, sponsored this and that -- if I want to give, I'll write a cheque. If you need a gimmick to raise the money, I wonder.

Crafting and BCA have now reached a new level of WTF Dumb. I am (strangley) not surprised or moved. Am I now as jaded as Marilyn or Twisty ? Cripes!

Today I was at my favorite thrift shop and I saw a purse that was shaped like a miniature bustier! I kid you not. I didn't have the camera with me and I sure as shit wasn't going to buy it, but I did a big double-take. Bright red. With little underwire cups sewn in. What is the world coming to?

So that's why there's an upsurge in implant surgeries. Otherwise, how in hell are you going to fit your wallet in there, eh?

Ted,
I am perfectly content to fantasize about Franklin's undergarments (and let me assure you, in my fantasies he is more likely to be wearing a glistening coat of baby oil and some Calvin Kleins) but I feel no desire to hear about whether he, in fact, owns a man-ssiere.

P.S. Don't you love the part where it tells you that the bigger the cup, the more room you'll have in the "purse"?

ah, reminds me of the dearly departed YKW website...

not that this monstrosity is knitted, mind you...

the lengths to which some people will go...

there MUST be a better way to fund breast cancer research...

(I feel like larry king tonight)

I was speechless, but snorted coffee when I read that you could use tassles to decorate your bra purse.
