New rice bra, more grains than brains?
Blog Guy, I know you have a background in agriculture. I’ve read that nations are running out of room to grow vital crops to feed their people. What is being done about this?
A very good question. Japan, for example, has begun to require women to grow rice in their brassieres.
Rice in brassieres? Is there a grain of truth in that?
Absolutely. Indeed, bra rice is very convenient when you’re cooking.
Well, say a recipe calls for two cups of rice…
Hmmmmm. It takes time to grow rice. What if I’m just wearing a bra for a few minutes?
You grow instant rice.
I don’t know about this, Blog Guy. What if my bra gets ripped off in an evening of passion?
Where do you think wild rice comes from?
I think this is just stupid. Besides, I wear a padded bra.
So? Hence the expression “rice paddies.”
A model wears Triumph International’s “Grow-Your-Own-Rice bra” in Tokyo May 12, 2010. The bra, which transforms into a rice growing kit, allows the wearer to cultivate rice anytime, anywhere. It was created in hopes that more people will become familiar with farming and develop awareness of the importance of agriculture, the lingerie maker said. REUTERS/Yuriko Nakao
