Stuffing the ballot box?
The genuine caption for this photo tells us this woman is wearing the ‘Voter Turnout Lift-Up Bra’ and that a lingerie maker introduced the garment, modeled after a ballot box, to raise the interest of Japanese people in elections.
You get the connection? No, I don’t either, unless voting places in Japan are a lot more like Tony Soprano’s Bada Bing Club than they are where I live. Is somebody confusing going to the polls with going to see pole dancers?
