    Abbie Hawkins, a hotel receptionist, thought her mobile phone was ringing when she felt vibrations coming from her clothes.

    But she later discovered the tiny creature tucked away in the padded pocket of her underwear.

    As staff and colleagues crowded around, Miss Hawkins, 19, produced the frightened bat, which was the size of her hand.

    I think the photo to go with the article is even funnier...a rubber bat propped inside a bra that she's holding. :rofl:

    Yeah, I noticed that too. Wonder if it will cause people to question the veracity of the story.

    Well I for one always check my underwear for bats on other small animals before putting them on.

    This is why you don't hang clothes outside to dry. Bugs, bird poop, it's just nasty.

    Once while putting cedar shingles on the cabin, a baby bat tried to crawl up my shirt sleeve. While it was really cute, I still had to perform the screaming bat on my arm dance:uhh:
    Perhaps it was heading for my bra?

    I was wondering what she had in the other cup to 'even things out'?

    Obviously, her cell phone. :rofl:

    I dunno, though. I just have a hard time figuring out how a little furry critter moving around could possibly be confused with a cell phone vibrating.

    "hmmm... 'things' feel a little different today...larger, or more 'full'.....hmmmm.....kind of warmer and fuzzier, too.....hmmmm.....maybe it's that time of the month....hmmmm....."

    Drat. Go to Plan C. (Plan B being, of course, disguising myself as a loofah).

    I don't wear a bra. Atleast I don't think I do.

    Lol... funny they don't show a picture of where it was hiding.

    There's got to be a pun in here somewhere. Bats, bras, belfrys...

    well, maybe this whole thing will teach her to wear her true fitting 'A' cup bra, instead of that oversized, padded, reinforced 'D' sized one to impress the boys.

    Actually, according to one source, she wears a 34FF bra. There are way funnier pictures in papers other than the telegraph!

    oh--my!

    That's enough for a 'way-back'---


    As Nick Danger said, "Poor Nancy, she fell right over!"

    Either way, it seems it's not fitted properly to have room for a small mammal in it and to not realize it right away. She REALLY must not be a morning person to have never noticed it while getting dressed.

    Yet another good reason to have that first cup of coffee!

    It said something about it being in a 'pocket'. I'm not so familiar with braziere design to know how that works out though.

    well, there is a term, but really doesn't apply here specifically:

    numb nuts
