Busting the Breast
One very hot day in the summer last year, a woman was walking through Guelph.
She saw bare-chested men enjoying the sun and said, I think I'll do that myself.
So she paused in her stroll to take off her top and then, much to her disgust, a passing
policeman told her to stop and said, young woman, this is a bust.
Now why are we busting the breast?
This question must be addressed.
Why make an issue of mammary tissue and why are we busting the breast?
Then hundreds of women all took up her cause, they heard she was going to court.
They said, this is a fight for topless rights and she's going to need our support.
So they marched in protest, all bearing their breasts and saying the law is an ass, enduring
the cries of hundreds of guys who descended with cameras amass, saying, why are we busting
the breast?
This question must be addressed.
Why make an issue of mammary tissue and why are we busting the breast?
The judge concerned said, what must be learned and what this court must decide is how much
of the body, no matter which gender society, requires us to hide.
You see, this may seem frivolous at first sight, but in fact, it's a serious charge because
men in fact also have breasts and in some cases, they're quite large.
So why are we busting the breast?
This question must be addressed.
Why make an issue of mammary tissue and why are we busting the breast?
And then the judge handed down a ruling and it sounded something like this.
It's the law, not the breast, which must be redressed, which led to this woman's wrongful
arrest and started her off on a legal quest to prove that she had been oppressed by a
law which simply had not progressed because it's no crime to bear your breast.
Oh, why are we busting the breast?
As a mammal, I don't understand if there's one part of the body that does only good.
It's the mammary gland.
We often compare ourselves with the U.S. and often they come out the best, but they only
have the right to bear arms and we have the right to bear breasts.
Well, I'm glad they weren't convicted because that would have been a bummer.
I'm glad the justice triumphed and I'm especially glad in the summer.
We're no longer busting the breast.
I'm glad we got that off our chest.
Why make an issue of mammary tissue?
We're no longer busting the breast.
