Here is what I have. I'm a 27 year survivor and I think they are funny and fun. I know the recipient will think so too.

Why are small breasts a joke?

I fail to see what's funny and I'll tell you why, okay? The average American male is 5'10" tall and his shoulder measurement is 17 inches. MY shoulders measure 17 and A HALF inches because starting when I was EIGHT YEARS OLD, I WORKED every day of my life carrying baskets of wet laundry up cellar stairs to hang on clotheslines, and I LIFTED children of all weights off and on bicycles and chairs and up out of bathtubs a bazillion times when I cared for them for their mothers and once I was 12, I lifted heavy trays of food as a waitress. As a result I developed highly MUSCULAR arms which, together with my broad shoulders, DWARFED my C-cups and resulted in an awful lot of unnecessary stupid remarks that in essence were totally UNTRUE and UNNECESSARY.

This is you and your daughter's idea of a MERRY Christmas for a FRIEND? Does either one of you care about what people think of those who do things like this? Are you under the impression that the recipient has NO feelings and will fail to remember? I'll be 80 next year and I REMEMBER every single hateful "joke" I ever heard about my "flat" chest.

I hope both of you realize she may or may NOT have this "friend" as of Decembe 26! PLEASE reconsider!

I am so so sorry you feel this way. I have the opposite problem. I wear a 38GG bra. I have had so many comments on my boobs that my poor brain would overload if I tried to remember them all.
I just don't have the time to bother with it. Some people have a real poor sense of humor. I look at it to wit: I have had no control over the abundance God gave me. So either enjoy the view or not, but shut up about it. A true lady or gent would never make such crude remarks.
God bless you darling. You have had a full life, it sounds like. I hope it was full of love. If it wasn't...come here to me and I'll try to make up for the lack of it.

Sue, glad you found the sites helpful. I think with open forums, it is easy for those reading entries to respond with their own perspective, and to me, it is part of an open forum, you did make it clear this is a running joke with your daughter and her friend. I think it is great you are moving forward with something that inspires her, it's simply the best way to get the younger generation interested in the crash, regardless of the topic....
