130,000 inflatable jubs missing at sea

Oz mag issues floating chesticle alert

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

An Australian men's mag has asked beachcombers to keep a sharp eye out for inflatable breasts after 130,000 pneumatic chesticles went awol en route from Beijing to Sydney.

Ralph had intended to to distribute the tits free with its January issue, but while the AU$200,000 cargo apparently left China a couple of weeks back, when the container turned up in Sydney the jubs had done a vanishing act.

The magazine's editor Santi Pintado asked anyone with information on the current whereabouts of its freebie to get in touch. He said: "Unless Somali pirates have stolen them its difficult to explain where they are. If anyone finds any washed up on a beach, please let us know.'

While WA Today describes the loss as a "serious blow" for the magazine's owner PBL, which "is already in AU$4.3bn of debt", the disappearance does offer the delicious possibility of a massed mammary beach landing at some point in the future.

In 1992, 30,000 Chinese plastic ducks destined for the US were washed overboard in a ferocious mid-Pacific storm. While some eventually turned up in Oz, many embarked on a 15-year "endless odyssey" of the world's oceans before last year menacing the English coastline. ®
