Rata-Tatas...An Interview With Two Boobs.

Ladies and gentlemen.I bring to you. My breasts.

I've decided to interview them for this post. Why? Well, throughout the years, they have been fondled, kissed, ogled, pinched and stared at so I figured that they could offer some sound advice on what it's like to be a breast in today's breast-eat-breast world.

Bubbles: Ladies, nice to see you today. I know you've been busy getting ready for election day, so thanks for taking some time out to talk to me.

Tatas: You're welcome, Bubbles. It's nice to actually have someone listen to us.

Bubbles: Tell me, what is the biggest misconception that you've had to overcome in your 20 years of life?

Tatas: That we have ears.

Bubbles: Oh, lol. You two are so funny. Remember that time you...Oh, forget it.

Tatas: :(

Bubbles: So, when was the last time you had something important to do?

Tatas: Well, the other day, we were out shopping and we got to cut in front of this nice gentleman at Stop and Shop.

Bubbles: Whoa! That IS important. Do you know how long the lines are at that store? Now, seriously, if you could tell the other bloggers here any one thing, what would it be?

Tatas: Well, we'd say that it's October and it's time for everyone to remember to 'think pink'!

Bubbles: You are right! And, just a reminder to everyone - having your guy or gal feel you up during sex does not count as a breast exam.

Tatas: Yes, thank you for that. We can't tell you how many times we've thought that.

Bubbles: What else would you like to tell us, since you've got the 'floor' as it were?

Tatas: Well, we just want everyone to remember that they shouldn't buy into the myths about breast cancer. For instance: It is not true that breast cancer only affects older women...From birth to age 39, one woman in 231 will get breast cancer.

Also, just because breast cancer doesn't run in your family - you can't assume you won't be affected. The fact is that 80% of women who get breast cancer had no known familial risk of it.

Breast cancer also affects men! Did you know that approximately 450 men die from breast cancer each year?

But most importantly, we'd like everyone to know that a breast cancer diagnosis is NOT an automatic death sentence. With early diagnosis, many women (and men) go on to live many years after their initial diagnosis and treatment.

Bubbles: Wow! You ladies ARE smart! No wonder people always want to hear you say something!

Tatas: Bubbles, we're breasts....but we're no boobs.

And, Then, Also. Blink.

Pop Quiz…Which of these comments belongs to Miss South Carolina and which belongs to the woman who could become our next Vice President:

"I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some, people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our, uh, education like such as, uh, South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, or, uh, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future, for our [children]."

“Oil and coal? Of course, it’s a fungible commodity and they don’t flag, you know, the molecules, where it’s going and where it’s not. But in the sense of the Congress today, they know that there are very, very hungry domestic markets that need that oil first,” Palin said. “So, I believe that what Congress is going to do, also, is not to allow the export bans to such a degree that it’s Americans that get stuck to holding the bag without the energy source that is produced here, pumped here. It’s got to flow into our domestic markets first.”

Does it matter? Well, yes – one of these women has not been accused of abusing her authority. The other has.

And one of them was not presented as the savior of their party. The other was.

And one of them seems to want to give SNL some much-needed Tina Fey time.

Does the Vice President matter? Some of you may say yes, some of you may say no. But what does matter is the judgment that went into the selection. I guess that is what defines leadership, from the top down.
