Boobs. It’s not a dirty word. It’s quite a funny word, mind, but it’s not rude.
They come in all shapes and sizes and more than half the population have got them.
Unfortunately they’re prone to cancer, so they need to be checked at least monthly.
Boobs have been making the news recently as The Sun is giving the Coppafeel breast cancer charity its page three every Tuesday in a campaign designed to encourage its readers to check themselves for lumps and bumps that shouldn’t be there.
It’s caused a bit of a storm, because it uses Page Three girls to publicise the message and so must therefore be vulgar, crass and self-serving. But if it saves one life, surely the method of delivery shouldn’t be an issue?
