Bra flag: from C to shining C…

June 3, 2008

bras-2-140.jpgBlog Guy, recently I was in Montreal, Canada, and I saw women’s brassieres hanging all over the place. You’re a sophisticated guy, so what’s up with that?

I think that must be the new Montreal flag. They didn’t want to use some variation of the maple leaf, because that’s already been done, and they liked the shape and variety of bras that are available. Also, I’m pretty sure the local hockey team is the Montreal Maidenforms.

You’re a moron. I don’t think you know anything about this at all. Plus, I believe you only ran this item so you could use that “C to shining C” headline!

Just shut up and salute the flag!

The original event date planned for December found the locals completely disinterested. None of the Montreal women seemed to want to get the point.

On a tragic note, an assumed tightrope walker has plummeted from eight stories to his death.

They asked the ladies to show their support… I love living in a bilingual country.

I think you all are missing the Type A’s and modest double D’s with only the “C to shining C’s” Can you plz give credit to all groups? Or would you be showing a preference to the Montreal Cups?
