E-mail reveals bra sizes of Detroit officers

There are certain questions you just don't ask women. Heaven help you if you share that information.

Imagine the reaction after a commander with the Detroit Police Department accidentally sent out an e-mail listing not only the weight of about 20 female officers, but also their bra sizes. The measurements were taken when the officers were fitted for bullet proof vests.

"This was not done maliciously. It was clerical error," Assistant Chief James White told CNN affiliate WDIV on Tuesday. "It is not the practice of the police department to share sensitive information."

    Clerical error my left foot! You don't get bra-cup sizes from chest measurements! This is like posting male officers jock strap sizes, which you wont get from trouser leg measurements! Tacky to say the least & I hope the "clerk" is found & fired!!

    Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD, E and F are the letters used to define bra sizes? If you have wondered why, but couldn't figure out what the letters stood for... It is about time you became informed:

    A ... Almost Boobs
    B ... Barely there.
    C ... Can't Complain!
    D ... Damn!
    DD... Double damn!
    E ... Enormous!
    F ... Fake

    A man walked into the ladies department of a Belk's Depaortment store. He reluctantly walked up to the woman behind the counter and said, "I'd like to buy a bra for my wife." "What type of bra?", asked the clerk. "Type?", inquired the man "There is more than one type?". "Look Around.", said the saleslady, as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size color and material. "Actually, even with all of this variety, there are really only three types of bras.", replied the salesclerk. Confused, the man asked, "Only three? What are they?" The saleslady replied "The Catholic type, the, Salvation Army type, and the Baptist type. Which one do you need?". Still confused the man asked "What is the difference between them?". The lady responded "It is quite simple. The Catholic type supports the masses, the Salvation Army type lifts up the fallen, and the Baptist type makes mountains out of mole hills."

    Thank you dazzle my friend. I just had to hit on this topic. So, how is life treating you ? It's getting rare that we are able to converse any more.
