I just noticed something in the article...
The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS)* has administered a righteous shoeing to a website offering girls the chance to pitch for a boob job and chaps the opportunity of sponsoring the enhancements. The offending site, myfreeimplants.com, asks the ladies: "Have you ever wanted bigger breasts? But couldn't …

"The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS)* has administered a righteous shoeing to a website offering girls the chance to pitch for a boob job and chaps the opportunity of sponsoring the enhancements."
Comedy acronym aside, I'm with the plastic surgeons on this one - I like a nice pair of Bulgarian Airbags[tm] as much as the next man, but this isn't scraping the bottom of the barrel, this is dynamiting your way through the bottom of the barrel and then digging like buggery. Whether the site is degrading is a matter of degree, but it is incredibly crass, IMO.
Part of me really, *really* hopes this is a hoax in the Dutch 'who shall I donate my kidney to?' stylee, but I suspect that this is real. Horribly, sadly, real. The cynic in me also thinks that MySpace isn't good enough for the cam-whores any more ...
You've heard of 'Tabloid TV', welcome to 'Tabloid Internet'.
What a brilliant acronym...
After posting my previous comment, I just noticed the bootnote. I'll get me coat...
So what if the girls want to 'degrade' themselves for a free boob job, it's up to them isn't it? They should still have to take all the psycologists tests and whatnot even if they get the required sponsor money.
We all know people are willing to go to new lows just for a bit of recognition and the like... just watch CH4 at 9pm!
BAAPS LOL ;-)
This just in:
- National Organisation Representing Keyhole Surgeons also outraged.
They must've been partaking in too many afternoon martinis to have noticed.
But on second thought... those pompous, self-important surgeons tend to have humour failure anyway... they wouldn't have noticed :-)
... isn't it just a form of low quality porn camz sites, but obviously pitched on a social engineering level at women with insecurtities about the size of their breats.
Wouldn't it be easier just to start turning tricks, don't have to have a PC and you'll earn the money a lot faster.
"*The first reader to post a comment pointing out the comedy potential of this acronym in relation to breasts will be banned from reading El Reg for a month."
And you'll feel a right tit.
Reckon an association of this nature is, just by virtue of the 'hapless' acronym intent on getting media exposure, and this is a perfect opportunity for them to publicly emote some 'outrage' and show they care for their target demographic.
Or it could be another kerrrayzee Dutch Reality Phone-In TV-style stunt to signal the lack of natural breast donors for women whose bodies are booby-trapped by aesthetically uncooperative genes. Cos natural is beast, you know.
Anyway, bet they're based in Bristol.
Let's milk this pun for all it's worth
"The first reader to post a comment pointing out the comedy potential of this acronym in relation to breasts will be banned from reading El Reg for a month."
That's alright, I'm not the first anymore so I'm in the clear.
So the more outrage they show the more they look good in the press, AND the more press coverage tits-for-titillation.com gets. The more hits the site gets - the more punters they get. The more punters - the more money the girls get, and ALL the money the girls get they give to the 'outraged' British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. Sweet marketing.
"And if we call ourselves BAAPS and give them an easy headline every time we're 'outraged' we'll make it into every tabloid paper."
The previous comment on BAAPS reads better when reading it out loud with Beavis' voice:
Beavis: It says "baaps"
Butthead: heh. heheh. heheh.
Though the concept itself (free boob job) is something I'd think would come out from B&B, anyway.
With all the comments about the silly abbreviation (I don't see it as an acronym) I wonder if anyone actually read the rest of the site.
They offer "Silicon Implants".
That must be for those women seeking "hard bodies".
We're discussing bags of water here. They make strange and disturbing noises when you turn over at night.
Hello trusted benefactor,
I'm righting to you as a trusted friend with a great interest in breasts. I am aware of some very large breasts in a plastic surgeons office, I can get them and share them with you if you can help out with some sundry expenses.
Yours in an A cup,
Just sitting back and admiring the handywork of these self-righteous wallet-stuffers, my mind drifted, and I was hit by a memory of an event a few years ago: The British military started giving free breast implants to those of it's female staff who wanted them: To improve their self-esteem. I seem to remember a member of an elite naval crew telling us how her self-esteem was so low because of her fried eggs, and how she *needed* the implants. There was, if I recall, a great wave of support, tv, politicians, newspapers. The Guardian was giddy with support!
Okay its not April 1st... (scratches head)
In the US, we send our *unattractive* women to our navy. Probably would really help with recruiting if they got comp boob jobs!
"BAAPS" -- The sound made when putting your face between a nice large set of D-cups and exhaling quickly. (Reminiscent of the "bronx cheer")
What the hell is a 'Gummy Bear'?
Off to googly now,
..."BAAPS" stood for "Bulgarian Airbags Appreciation and Poking Society"?
Is this not the procedure for putting implants on a sheep?
Tits for Tots.
Why wait to be put on a list now for breast enhancements? Get on the early bird special waiting list for your chance to get breasts implants and get a free lobotomy to match.
Almost as bad a a guy getting a breast enhancement spam and a girl getting penis enhancements spam.
Atleast the internet is unbiased when it comes to age, race, or sex.
The world and internet could use a little common sense though.
These are presumably the same doctors who invented the case-note acronym 'tube' to amuse their colleagues.
(For the uninitiated it stands for Totally Unnecessary Breast Examination but a quick google will turn up all of the other infantile variations...)
