While watching a spectacular New Year's Eve fireworks display a Florida woman discovered that an errant bullet fired in the air in celebration of the approaching New Year was caught in her bra. "Wonder of wonders!" She exclaimed, "I could have lost my...life!"
The .45 caliber bullet did slightly tear into her skin and she required a few stitches but the majority of the bullet remained supported by the brassiere.
Responses to this miracle of miracles have been numerous and varied. US Army representatives are very interested in the bra as possible body armour in Iraq. When asked if the device would be issued to men as well, the Army response was to say that Seinfeld had already overdone that joke.
The anti-Feminist organization, Women Aglow, issued a statement saying this was proof the good Lord favored this particular undergarment and wasn't this young lady thankful to the Lord she wasn't one of those 60's Bra-burners or those sluts who go without!
The NRA celebrated this event by unveiling its new slogan : Guns don't kill...people; not even bullets kill...people. NRA spokesperson, Alyssa Sierra Nevada did remind its membership that this must not have been one of the NRA endorsed armour piercing bullets or this would have been one flat...person.
Cards, letters,e-mails and even marriage proposals have been inundating the Florida home. The young lady sends her thanks for the show of concern and promises she will never fire her gun in the air again!
