Two loops in the back. How do they do it? – George Costanza.
NEW YORK – A woman’s bra which in an emergency can double as a pair of gas masks has won one of the awards handed out at the prestigious Harvard University for the year’s most eccentric research.
The Ig Nobels, a tongue-in-cheek homage to their Scandinavian counterparts, were announced just days before the Nobel committee in Stockholm began awarding its prestigious awards on Monday.
The bra that can be turned into two protective face masks — one for the wearer and the other for whoever else may need one — won its inventors Elena Bodnar, Raphael Lee and Sandra Marijan of Chicago the Public Health award.
The patent states that each of the bra’s cup sections is fitted with a filter device, meaning the wearer can whip it off, and detach each section to fit it over the face. (H/T – )
Whip it off, huh? Sounds like a lot of horny guys will be sounding the air raid sirens whenever a hot babe walks by. I’m just sayin’.
