The Origin of the Amazons

Not the on-line store.

Remember your mythology?  The Amazons were a fierce tribe of women warriors who removed their right breast so it would not get in the way when they released their arrows.

Anyway, this was in the news about three weeks ago and I really don't have anything to say ~ it sort of speaks for itself.  As for me, I'd rather grow one (or more) breasts than invade Poland.

From the Daily Mail:

T**zkrieg! Dozens of soldiers in elite German brigade 
each develop single breast as drill stimulates 
hormones on one side of body
and from the HuffPost the surprisingly subdued:

German Soldiers Growing Breasts Because Of Gun Drills

(but they do include video)

Google "german soldiers breasts" and you'll find all sorts of articles.  Now all I need is a "how to" that doesn't involve slapping myself with a gun all day.

I hope you're all having a great day.  Today, as you all know, is a special day worth celebrating: Jack Benny's birthday.  He was born in 1894, which makes him... hang on... subtract four...  carry the one...


It's also Valentine's Day.  Buy flowers, for that special someone ~ and femme up the house a bit for yourself as well.


  1. Meg -

    Jack Benny's Birthday - That's a bit of trivia I didn't know.....

    And it's also the 84th anniversary of the consolidation of the Chicago recreational services and substances industry by the South Side organization under the auspices of its CEO/COO, Mr. A. Capone.


    1. I remember seeing a movie about that when I was a kid!

  2. The manner in which they drill has caused breast development only on the left side in 74% of the men in this elite unit.

    Dr. Bjorn Krapohl (how would you pronounce his name? 'crap-hole?') has opined that "They have to change the way they drill". Perhaps they can also slap their weapons on their right breast to stimulate the glands on that side and then develop symetrical bi-lateral breasts. Even factoring in the costs of bras as part of the uniform I think it would be less expensive and invasive than left side breast amputation surgery.



My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
