Hypnotic Boob Enhancement

Michael Stivers had an interesting career. He was a professional wrestler, who used the stage name "Pretty Boy Behning." He was also a police officer for 13 years, but around 1990 he quit that profession to become a hypnotist.

At first, he ran a pretty ordinary hypotism business — using hypnotism to help people lose weight or quit smoking. But around 1991 he discovered a unique way to specialize and differentiate his practice. He became a "breast enlargement hypnotist."

His pr material explained: "The larger-breast style of self-hypnosis relaxes the subject, then allows her to will an increased blood flow into the fatty tissues of the breast, much like that during menstruation or pregnancy. Daily conditioning through self-hypnosis allows what amounts to a permanent enhancement."

But according to a 1991 AP story, some patients had mixed results:

A 58-year-old Tampa woman who wouldn't give her name said her bust measurement grew 3 inches through hypnosis in April, but then shrank 1 ½ inches.

As far as I can tell, Stivers stayed in business until at least 1995.

Miss Stardust of 1948

A couple of points about this beauty queen.

1) Mother was also a beauty queen, "Miss Brooklyn of 1928." Alas, I can find no pix of the elder Bayes.

2) Should a beauty queen who represents the "falsie" industry be considered for her natural endowments, or her falsie-assisted curves?

3) Note the loving care and extra attention that WU brings to all its posts, as we present the previous year's winner below, as a supplement.

Police Inquiry Cut Short

A Circumcision Ambulance was stolen in Great Britain. They have Circumcision Ambulances in Great Britain and they do in home circumcisions. As mentioned above the police inquiry was cut short when a private citizens neighborhood watch group tweeted about finding the abandoned car.

[Click to enlarge--ha!]

There's a great story behind this pill, wherein an ex-employee tried to rip off the formula and sell it as "Charm-on." Read it here.

Did you know breast-boosting pills are still for sale?
