He said, she said... And I posted, now you laugh!

I swear this is a real conversation. I am not making it up. Needless to say, the identities have been hidden to protect the guilty....

He: Check this out:

She: :-P I don't get it though. Whats the diffrence between this and a vest? Vest covers all the organs ???

He: No no.. this is supposed to replace the traditional bra, not the vest. A vest wouldn't provide the support.. so they need something to supplement the vest and provide support underneath.. (After all, you can't have women cops running around bra-less.. hippie days are gone!) And the traditional "support-providers", because of metallic wires etc, created an injury risk from the impact of a bullet upon the vest.. and so, they needed something that can provide the support without using any metals...

Now, what's ironic is why am I - a man - explaining about support to you - a woman! Shouldn't it be the other way round? What do I know about support? (above the waist, that is :-P )

She: Sigh....such interesting conversation :-P

What happened to the simple cloth bra? I guess you're saying this is needed because its indeed painful to be shot at regardless of wearing kevlar. You still get bruises. So you need additional padding. ok.

Yes yes. I remember now the last time when I had a bullet hit me :-P

Lord. Now all we need is bullet proof jockstraps.

He: Well.. I can't speak from personal experience since I never had a bullet hit me in the boobs while I was wearing a bra.. But german women seem to think they need additional padding. And I suppose germans had their reasons for needing metal in their bras.. they are a tough bunch, you know!

How do you know they don't already have bullet proof jockstraps? I am sure men cops thought of that early enough. After all, a woman can survive without breasts.. but a man without his thingy might just as well be dead!

She: Bullet proof jockstrap. Ok I research it and let you know if it exists or not :-D

As of this writing, he's still waiting to see the results of her research, and refuses to venture out into bullet prone areas of the world until then. She, on the other hand, is seriously considering relocating to Germany to enroll in the law enforcements division.
