Lingerie: Now With Warning Labels
The Congress in Brazil recently passed a bill to add warning labels to lingerie. The matter is now pending before Brazillian President Dilma Rousseff.
If this bill is enacted, all bras sold in Brazil will henceforth carry a label, encouraging their wearer to check herself for breast cancer. Panties will carry one reminding women that condom use may prevent cervical cancer. Not to be left out, men will see a message in their underwear reminding them to be screened for prostate cancer if they are over the age of 40.
I, for one, have always thought that women should come with warning labels. These, however, are not the kind that I was thinking about.
