According to Elena Bodnar, yes. In the event of a noxious gas emergency (generally not the human-generated kind), Bodnar’s brassiere can be converted into two gas masks. One gas mask for the brassiere wearer (she’s definitely topless by this point) and “one to be given to a needy bystander.” This invention is so brilliant that Bodnar won a Nobel Prize for it in the Public Health category.

Not your typical Nobel Prize, an IG Nobel Prize. The IG Nobel Prizes are special because they’re awarded for research that “first makes people LAUGH then makes them THINK.” You laughed and then you thought about the reality of the situation. In the event of an “incident” women everywhere would be topless. What’s the going rate on a canister of Sarin these days?

The only remaining question is, is there one large enough for Denise Milani?

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
