Microwave your bra to end Global Warming? Stop pulling my chain.


I'm so mad at Triumph International, I could spit! But, since I'm a well-respected actress I won't do that. That lingerie maker has come out with a bra that you put in your microwave. That heats up the material inside, supposedly keeping you warm.

It is obvious to me that this is just their latest attempt to get publicity and draw attention to themselves. And, by the way, that's only going to make the environment worse!

Japan has a "Warm Biz" campaign that wants people to wear more clothing in order to save on heating. At first glance this might appear like it might help, but what about all the electricity those microwaves require? And, what happens when those microwaves are thrown out? What about this so-called "eco-friendly" gel in the bra? How do we know that doesn't contain harsh chemicals that could seep into our ground water?

According to their press release:

"We hope this will not only help prevent global warming but also provide a little fashion chic to the office."

Real cute. How could the land that brought us the Kyoto Protocols - that Bush refused to sign - bring us this? Everyone knows the best way to end global warming: personal energy generation from the wind. This has nothing to do with that.

I have a message for Triumph: do not try to sell your wares in Beverly Hills: we aren't buying it.
