Ralph, an Australian men's magazine has reported that 130,000 inflatable breasts have gone missing. The magazine purchased the breasts to use as free gifts for its January issue.
The container with the plastic boobs left the loading docks in Beijing two weeks ago, but arrived empty in Sydney this week (source News.com.au).
Ralph’s editor in chief, Santi Pintado, is urging anyone with information about the missing cargo, said to be worth £85,000, to contact the magazine directly.
"Unless Somali pirates have stolen them its difficult to explain where they are," Pintado said. "If anyone finds any washed up on a beach, please let us know."
I suppose that plastic breasts could be used as pirate eye patches, or a good place to stash the booty, but I seem to recall that about 150 pilot whales washed up on the beaches in Australia recently. Maybe they were playing breast ball or mistook them for one-eyed squid?
