An Oz barmaid who splendidly "entertained customers" in a Western Australia hotel by "crushing beer cans between her bare breasts" has been fined A$1,000 dollars (£439) for a breach of the Liquor Control Act. According to the Telegraph, 31-year-old Luana De Favari admitted flashing her chesticles twice at patrons of the Premier …
This is not good enough!
How many times do we have to go through this Lester? Photographs make all the diffrence on imporant storys like this. We need the infomation. Its just not good enough!
Where is the photographic evidence?
All in the name of substantiation of truth, obviously....
What happened to Bulgarian Airbags?
It took place in a pub. That's the IT angle.
I'm going to have a picture of Mars, because it looks a bit like a breast.
The Author should be renamed Half-a-Job Bob
I'm having difficulties picturing the incidents in question. Some photographs would help greatly.
I grew up in Pinjarra 20 years ago. It wasn't like that when I was a kid.
Must get back there sometime.... sounds like a fun place.
This is useless without pics
After all, without pictures how could be possibly decide if the law was justified? Depending on the state of them, they might have been doing the crowd a favour making her keep them under wraps.
So does that mean...
... that we can have "Australian can crushers" as an alternative to Bulgarian airbags?
...where's the video? There must be at least one in existence surely :-D
Reg Club Rule 5
When I was a lot younger and at college we would while away our spare time eyeing-up the females. We came up with clasification for mam sizes.
Then some one chucked in "Anything more than a handful is a waste", at which point we all looked at our hands and realised we all had different sized hands. The solution was we invented the BSH that's the British Standard Handful. (34C, slightly bigger than my hand). Someone also said "Anything more than a mouthful is a waste" but that could apply other things as well, so it got binned
I can't find one example image of this fledgling sport on google!!
Buck your game up ElReg!
Not just that....
... but can we have a 'Where's the picture?' icon?
Well you asked...
So here it is....
@Paul and A.C
'Our licensed premises'?
What's with this 'our licensed premises' guff from the rozzers?
It's private property, shurely?
It *is* private property. And stop calling me Shirley.
"The woman 'is alleged to have also crushed beer cans between her breasts during one of the offences', in breach of hotel licensing laws, police from the Peel district of Western Australia said."
I think it's wonderful that their hotel licensing laws specifically forbid mammary-assisted beer can crushing. These Aussies think of everything.
A shot at a new headline for this story!

Coat on already!
Aussie Aussie Aussie
nice to see that us Aussies get a fair reporting on a pommy website. As an ex-Pom-who-has-seen-the-light-and-become-an-Aussie I am digusted at the level of "negative" reporting by the Reg.
Anyway on to more important stuff. Does anyone have her phone number, think we need to invite her over here to Queensland to invesitgate wether ...um ... it is still a crime in this state.
Easy now boys
Anyone would think it was difficult to find pictures of breasts on the internet.......
Fluffykins - you do realise pasting in that link will now confuse the poor BOFH looking after that server. He'll never work out why sooo many people want to look at his beer can!!
They may have their knockers, but I think they deserve plenty of support for this.
I hope they were rightly applauded for this act - had I been there, I'd certainly have given them a warm hand etc etc and so on.
@Well you asked...
Oh my god, that is terrifying. Not at all the sexy vid I was expecting. That woman could do a hell of a lot of damage to anything, or anyone, that got in her way.
Where's the IT angle?
/me gets coat.
There might be an angle grinder, though ..
It's all over the interweb
Check out today's (25-Oct-2007) Astropix:
You could crush a lot between those.
The IT angle is glaringly obvious - it tok place in a pub!!!
Picture here!, clothed unfortunately
That should stop the Daily Mail knockers.
Oz barmaid adored for crushing beer cans between jubs

Oz barmaid celebrated for crushing beer cans between jubs
All seem to make more sense to me - poor girl was doing her bit to reduce the transportation volume of empty beer cans on their way to recycling (or to take less landfill space - your choice) and tried to retain her modesty with teaspoons so as not to offend.
I also vote for the 'oi Lester, where's the pic, then?' icon
Oz barmaid crushes beer cans between fine jubs?
Someone needs to set up a donations page to pay the fine.
She's big lass, she's a bonny lass
The bloody woman is cheating! She's got sheets of lead in her bra.
Prove it, tootsie - get 'em out for El Reg.
Not against the law here
Being topless in Ontario is not against the law, maybe a smart bar owner here in Toronto can implement this new form of entertainment! I can see it now: In one room Strippers from Montreal, in the other Ozzie bar maids taking out the trash...
I knew once used to show her tit's to her favorites they couldn't crush anything but I liked em, the women do however risk losing their jobs doing this sort of extra entertainment and I advise against it (unless the bar is full of bikers then it's required).
Spoons as well
But were they teaspoons, dessert spoons or ladles? Might be another unit of measure to add to the Reg's standard scale.

Only if you're looking at a mammogram. Dude, you're weird...
What I want to know
What kind of a rubbish hotel bar serves cans of beer???
What kind of a rubbish hotel bar serves cans of beer???
Obviously Australian ones, also cheaper to transport than bottled beer and less hastle than draught no specialised plumbing required and the only way to drink aussie beer.
i've lived in Aus. Even in the downtown bars of Kings Cross, Sydney, the bars had dustbins filled with cans in iced water. No taps. No optics. And the fascists charged a dollar to open one. It was cheaper to get into conversation with a hooker - the barman would open cans for her for nothing.
Fantastic country. Sadly i'm too old to emigrate now.
Anonymous Coward , here's a less terrifying Vid
The Tobacconist in Fellini's Amarcord
Agreed, donation page needed.
What the hell is this country coming to (not that WA is really classed as part of Australia, it's so bloody far away!) when a sheila can't get her gear off to to help Planet Ark and their recycling efforts.
And, how about the police actually get off the backsides and catch REAL criminals in their spare time instead of drinking at the pub. I bet they don't get screened for the "random" breath test on the way home.....
The cops must have a hard job.
the evil conspiracy
this kind of thing used to be pretty commonplace in West Oz's mining towns.
Some of the girls were local celebrities, and had their 'signature' tricks. But the moral Fascists decided that hard rock miners would be corrupted and led astray by the sight of feminine flesh (being a long way inland and away from public beaches where such is displayed freely and often so that exposure might lead to desensitization) and required the enforcement of laws from the previous century.
To make matters worse, a local businesman and pub owner, got the license to run an actual strip joint... whereupon other pubs - not belonging to this entrepenuer, tended to become subject to complaints to the morality gestapo whenever the girls working in them happened to flash a nipple or display some buttock.
Its a tragedy, another cultural artform being oppressed and effectively wiped out by small minded officials
