Støt Brysterne

Well, I just bought my first rubber armband for charity type thingie, a pink one for breast cancer. I realize the dangers of charity fashion as opposed to real charity giving, but it was an impulse buy. While the English language pink bands say very nice things like 'Breast Cancer Awareness' or 'Beacon of Hope', the name of the Danish campaign is 'Støt Brysterne', or in English, 'Support the Breasts'. How can a girl resist a statement like that? Danish man has been having fun with it as well.

I can't seem to get the lettering to show on a photograph, but you can see it here. If I wore clothing with slogans, I might also be tempted to get the t-shirt. Please note that the symbol on the t-shirt (which is also on the armband) is the symbol for the Danish cancer society, and so not necessarily supposed to look like breasts.

I brought some of those yellow rubber wrist bands that say "livestrong" to Brazil to give as gifts and people love them.

Chibithulhu supports the breasts. And pseudpodiae, and ganglia, and mouths, and feelers, and the hooves.

I know my kids wear them but are very picky about which ones to wear. They actually wanted a Children's Miracle Network one but I think it is because they glow in the dark. But I bet if I told my 12 year old son about supporting the breasts he would wear a pink one for sure. I just love translations!

Hi Eliza,

Yes, this would be totally cool as a bra. I'd buy it.
