Boobs are the new flag pin

So this year I forgot to wear green on St. Patrick’s day and totally fucked up Rodeo Day (which is a real holiday in Texas and stop judging us, Canada) but I am totally prepared for today which is apparently NATIONAL CLEAVAGE DAY.

UPDATE:  Apparently I am the only person in my office even aware of National Cleavage Day.  Also I was asked to go home and change because “it’s important for people in HR to act professional” and I was all “THIS IS AN OFFICIAL HOLIDAY” and they’re all “What makes it so ‘official’?” and I’m like “IT HAS IT’S OWN WIKIPEDIA PAGE.”  Then they made me put on a sweater because they don’t understand wikipedia.  So basically my breasts and my civil rights are suffocating.  This is like when women aren’t allowed to breast-feed in public places, except worse because on National Cleavage Day everyone suffers.

UPDATE #2:  I’m celebrating National Cleavage Day here in spite of the oppression and if you leave me a link in the comments with a picture of your hooters I will totally come celebrate your cleavage.  Probably so will a lot of weird strangers.  It’s probably best not to do that after all.

Comment of the day: Since it was obvious how upset you were with the whole having to wear a sweater at work thing, I decided to go to the store and buy you a “Happy National Cleavage Day” card. I couldn’t find them so I asked this old guy at the register where I would find them and he was all “uhh…I don’t think that’s a real holiday”. Then I had to explain how if wikipedia said it was a holiday then it was a holiday. All he could say is “what?” So I repeated it but louder cause I figured he had bad hearing or something. Then he told me “we don’t have any cards for that.” I told him that it was a sin not having any cards for this holiday. By that time I was being very loud & he kicked me out. Oh did I mention the only store in town is run by Mennonites? ~ Gracie Lace

  5. Dammit! The out and proud cleavages of the world should be able to show themselves! This is an outrage! (And I’m not even a cleavage-kinda-guy! Rabble, rabble, rabble!)

  6. Your boobs and pussy are nice

  7. I can’t believe they made you put on a sweater. People at my work place wear way more cleavage exposing outfits. Just saying…

  16. Those are some mighty fine girls you got there.

    Probably what happened is that you forgot to tell them that it was National Cleavage Day and so they didn’t know to wear their boob-baring outfits and then they were embarrassed and then they took it out on you because your girls were getting all the attention and their girls were like lonely wallflowers.

  19. Realizing my last comment is probably going to get me thrown in jail.

    It was joke people. Jesus.

  20. First of all, EVERY day is National Cleavage Day in my world.

    Second of all, if your boobs looked any better you would be REQUIRED to pose naked in Playboy. EVERY MONTH. And I would buy a subscription because really? Who here wouldn’t??? Exactly.

  21. If you’re going to announce something as fun as National Cleavage Day, you should probably do it the day before, because I live too far away to go home and change, so I had to just take off my shirt instead. The HRs are not very happy with me and oh, look they’ve offered to take me out to my car…wait, those aren’t people who work here, they’re in uniforms – and that’s not my car!

  25. I *love* this picture. And I have a shockingly similar dress, but you look WAY better in it than I do. Although it is a pretty awesome cleavage dress.

  26. Of course you realize the only way to take your rights back is to take your shirt of, right? You’ll start an office revolution. Getting you to put on a sweater will be the least of their problems when you’re burning your desk. Topless.

  28. WOW, and to think I had no idea such a holiday existed. Where have I been. I’ve got cleavage, and I will gladly show it, for the sake of the holiday.

  32. To the cleavage-challenged, this day is worse than Valentine’s Day to the chronically single. How can you so cavalierly flout your tata cleft while others are suffering in training bra hell? No amount of pumpable push-up technology ever heals the emotional pain of a featureless chestal region. Here’s hoping all you silicone enhanced hussies can enjoy your day, knowing that they’re numbered!!

  35. People keep telling me “Steak and a Blow Job Day” is a national holiday, too, but until I see evidence of such, be it a greeting card section at Target or a day off of work, I say it can’t be true. However, I did take today off work to let my cleavage lay around and catch up on DVR’d shows, so this is totally legit.

  38. I didn’t even know it was Happy Cleavage Day, and yet I find myself sitting here at my computer with mah gals hanging out. That baby I cranked outta me on Saturday has caused quite a ruckus in the boobie department, and I find myself with the most spectacular, yet highly painful tatas ever. I’d send you a picture now, but I sort of made a deal with my husband about posting naked boobie pics on the internet. So I’ll just keep you posted if I can get them in some appropriately photogenic attire.

    I see, by the way, that you have one of those really furry pussies. I bet you get tired of the sound of coughing and hacking up hair balls around your house. You should get one of those hairless ones, Brazilian are they? (Well, they should be, if they’re not.)

    Nice cleavage. I didn’t know there was a day for cleavage. Now that you’ve posted this photo of yours, I’d like to look into it.

  45. If I had cleavage, I would totally celebrate along with you. But sadly, this is just another holiday that discriminates against the flat chested. Just like Christmas. And don’t even get me started on Easter. So racist … or something.

Never mind that I have to get my tires rotated, go grocery shopping, and possibly work later today. This is an issue that cannot be ignored, and my girls will not be silenced. BOOOOBIIIES!

    Look, I am 48 years old and I can dang well assure you that no one wants to see all my cleavage.

    I have to wear little tank tops underneath, which is a pain because since when do they think I am organized enough to have a matching tank top and dress clean on the same day?

    And Chris Rock on tittie:

    But here! Cleavage and cute baby all in one!

  63. Strap a plastic doll onto your nipple, and walk around like that. Then no one would DARE tell you to put on a sweater. Right? It works for me.

    Cleavage is underrated. People are happy around cleavage, so what their problem is is beyond me. Losers.

    I think I should go and write about mine now… 🙂

    Still need Kegel advice

    One of my best friends has fantastic cleavage that she shows off nearly every day to very good effect. The very embarrassing thing to me is that I am doing that terrible staring-at-her-cleavage-while-talking-to-her thing pretty much all the time.

    I have awesome cleavage too — double D’s! — and have recently started showing it off more in homage to my very smart, very busty gal pal. But so far pretty much everybody has managed to speak to my face rather than my rack, so maybe the cleavage is just awesome in my mind and is kind of average “what kind of cougar does she think she is?” middle-aged crepey-boobed scariness in the real world.

    Sorry, but I will be unable to participate. I will, however, be available to observe both the holiday AND the cleavage.

  70. I wish I had known about National Cleavage Day! I always have cleavage but I would celebrated with glitter, or fairy stickers or sparklers in my cleavage.

    Here’s a post of mine that included a boobies photo:

    “Old Stuff Day is not a day to do the same old stuff. It’s a time to recognize the boring nature of your daily routine, and make some exciting changes. Find new and different activities, projects, and hobbies. Attend an event. Do something, anything, different.”

    So, if you’re looking for an exciting change, celebrate National Cleavage Day by showing them off. I’m going to now that I know about this wonderful holiday!

It’s a heavy sacrifice by women but if it keeps just one dude with man boobs from yelling ‘happy cleavage day’ and drawing attention to his under-covered boobal region, then it’s a good sacrifice!

  97. I’m filing a report with the ACLU because I find this holiday to be very unfair to us small-breasted women. The only way I can get any cleavage is if I use both hands to push my breasts together and then it is very VERY hard to get anything done. I could use my toes instead of my hands but then my feet would block the view of my breasts thus voiding any view of cleavage.

  102. Canadians would love to celebrate National Cleavage Day ——Except They Don’t Have One!!!!!!!!!!! NO wonder they’re jealous suckers…

    Actually, they tried to have a National Cleavage Day but somebody in the front office screwed up and it mistakenly became National Cleaver Day and this how they got their national bird, the Beaver.

    In all fairness, they do celebrate National Hump Day which is how they initially got their Mounties.
    I am pretty sure of these facts and there’s no need for anyone to doubt them or investigate them for accuracy. I know at least one Canadian and that’s one more than necessary.

  103. Damn, you can come work at my house today! Ni-i-ice!

    Since it was obvious how upset you were with the whole having to wear a sweater at work thing, I decided to go to the store and buy you a “Happy National Cleavage Day” card. I couldn’t find them so I asked this old guy at the register where I would find them and he was all “uhh…I don’t think that’s a real holiday”. Then I had to explain how if wikipedia said it was a holiday then it was a holiday. All he could say is “what?” So I repeated it but louder cause I figured he had bad hearing or something. Then he told me “we don’t have any cards for that.” I told him that it was a sin not having any cards for this holiday. By that time I was being very loud & he kicked me out. Oh did I mention the only store in town is run by Mennonites?

  107. I did not know about cleavage day! So, I’m not showing any, but I wouldn’t be able to anyway. I have huge boobs and am very self consious about them. Showing my collar bone is be being “slutty!”

    In other words, I couldn’t get the card, but there are plenty of other stores in the town next to me. So there’s hope yet!

  112. Contradictory messages. They tell you “it’s important for people in HR to act professional” yet object to the cleavage.

    I would say you appear to be a professional in this outfit.

    Or at least a pro.

    🙂 You look great. Happy National Cleavage Day.

  117. Double crap!

    If only I had known!
    I lost an N in all this talk of cleavage.

    elfini’s last blog post..a Hodge-podge, but no Brady

  118. Those of us with no cleavage completely support your right to celebrate yours! Seriously, even those padded wired push-up bras can’t give me cleavage…

  119. It wasn’t the cat that distracted me. Sorry. I will now spent 10 minutes hating myself for being such a male chauvinist pig.

  120. I thought about celebrating this momentous holiday with you, but then I remembered that I teach 9th grade. I can’t even say the phrase, “This is going to be a hard test,” because they start snickering at the word hard. Exposing “the girls” to a hormone infested jungle, would not be a good way to spend my Friday…though it would probably cut down on potential volunteers to stand up and write on the board.

    I have a cat that looks just like that one. Seriously! I did a double-take because she looks so much like the one pictured above. We’re not certain, but we think our cats are Norwegian Forest Cats, so keep an eye out for that sort and you might get one that looks similar. 🙂

  136. I can totally relate, you should have seen the uproar at my work when something similar happened.

    No matter how many times I yelled “It’s Steak and BJ Day, I swear!” the security officers just kept dragging me further onto the sidewalk.

  137. What kind of Boobs would ask you to cover up your boobs?

  145. Damn girl. You’ve got some rack. I didn’t even notice the cat or the face you were making until you pointed it out because I was so focused on your glorious boobage. And I can say that because I am a straight woman and therefor it is not creepy when I point out how magnificent your boobs look.

  161. On St. Patrick’s Day I walked around my office with my balls hanging out and a four leaf clover lodged in my pee hole. HR made me wear a jock strap to keep the nads from sagging so much. It was a pretty pathetic sight, until I put a cork in my ass to cover up a little bit. It was green, though.

    The green socks and dress shoes seemed to complete the outfit.

    Jo’s last blog post..How to Get a Good Pregnant Night’s Sleep


    On Wednesday I was at IHOP with some weird people (read: my friends) and one of them had a one hundred dollar bill, so I grabbed it and stuffed it between the girls. Since he and I are NOT THAT CLOSE, he wasn’t gonna reach in there and get it. I found this hilarious. He politely asked me to give it back; I said no. Somebody else told him to go for it, and he said, “No, I can’t! It’s between her…um, her… friends! I can’t reach in there.” I died laughing. Then the guy who encouraged him said, “Did you just calm them her ‘friends’? Dude. BREASTS. Say it.”

    I love boobs.
    Especially when guys are incapable of forming sentences because of them.

    Abby’s last blog post..She’s baaaaaaaa-aaaaack!

    I joined you in your Cleavage Day fun today, and all I got were some interesting looks from other people. And at least one “Why are you so dressed up?” Sigh. It was worth it, though. I never let the boobs out for air, I think they needed it.

    Elaine at Lipstickdaily’s last blog post..Photo Story Weekend

  188. I wish I could have participated in National Cleavage Day
    but my girls hate each other so they are pointing out and
    away. The only way I’ll get cleavage is to go bra-less,
    clamp weights to them and then tie them in a knot after
    they’ve stretched down to my knees in 30 years.

  189. It’s not “cleavage”, it’s “breast diversity”.

    You’re welcome.

  190. Dammit, why did you not tell us about this last week so that we could be prepared? Of course for me to have cleavage I have to mash the girls together with my hands and then I’d need someone else to hold the camera and I’d still come away feeling all inferior, so I’ll just celebrate your boobs instead. Yay Jenny’s boobs!

    EdenSky’s last blog post..Do the Potty Wheeze!

  191. OK. My favorite part of this is how a holiday is official when it has it’s own Wikipedia Page. Let’s just say I observe Cleavage Day every day even if I don’t want to. I wish I had a job so I could strut around my cleavage and then quit. Oh, wait, I did quit. Come to think of it, cleavage may have been to blame. Never mind.

  192. Jenny, ask and you shall receive.

    Just please make sure your requests never involve brussel sprouts. I hate them.

    So here’s my celebratory cleavage…if I can figure out how to link…whatever:

    i don’t know how to link.

    i am such a loser.

    but i still have wine.

    and ativan.

    so s’all good.

    and i still love you jenny:)

    Andy’s last blog post..i’m all about self sacrifice for the benefit of spreading soft core nudity

  194. That is the cutest dress EVER. I love it. And nice boobs too. 🙂

  195. Honestly, I love you people. And your boobs.

  196. omg, i lost the comment the first time i wrote it and it was brillant you will have to settle for this second try.

    you quit, you feel good about it, do not stress you will not implode or vaporize into thin air, you will find something else or not, but either way you will be fine and if it sits well with you and your family well then….good for you!

  197. I am sorry I didn’t know about this holiday, but ironically, I had major cleavage going on yesterday. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture, so you will just have to have to take my word for it…they were spectacular.

  198. Lawdy Momma, your boobs are as big as mine. We’ll have to converse about that someday. I’m curious as to how many other women with D, DD, and larger breasts WISH the hell they were smaller. Gravity hates you when you’re 40+. The Itty Bitty Titty Committee will never have to loathe gravity like we will.

    Sadly, for me, that lovely cleavage has become a curse from hell. Standing naked in front of a mirror (or significant other) used to be a time for inner gloating, now it’s more like…painful and depressing. I don’t even want to think about it.

    I celebrated the day by wearing a sports bra and bike shorts and displaying the largest unaboob known to man. (Okay, maybe not THE largest, but probably the largest anyone would dare to display publically.)

    Oh God – I just read that and it sounds dirty.

    What I meant was that I’m so flat chested that I’d need to use both hands to push ’em together to create any semblance of cleavage.
