Saved by a bra?


As I was combing the net for a topic to write about, I came across an interesting article on how a woman’s life had been saved by her bra.  At first, I thought that it was a joke, but to my amazement, it proved to be true!

As the story goes, while out for a bike ride, the woman was struck by a hunter’s stray bullet.  Although she felt a sharp pain in her chest when struck, her life was spared when the bullet deflected off the metal underwire of her bra.

Some would say that it was a case of the woman being in the wrong place at the wrong time, others would say that it was dumb luck that she came out of it relatively unscathed.  I choose to look at it from an entirely different angle…

Here is my slant on it.  Since the woman was out for a bike ride, she was likely intent on getting in some exercise to facilitate a healthy lifestyle.  As for the hunter, he was simply trying to find some meat to put on his table.  So in essence, one was trying to work it off, while the other was trying to put it on.  Therefore, only one thing can be at the root of this unfortunate situation!  It is clear as day!  Since consumption was the cause of this ill-fated circumstance, and both parties were looking for their respective fixes, all one can do is…blame it on fast foods!
