This event has received no publicity at all in Australia. Possibly because we lost, and cannot deal with the shame.

Oh good piss. My sister-in-law is really into the Breast-Feeding-as-Political-Statement. I'm all for it and I don't care if women do this in even the most public places, but spare me the Rosa Parks Back-of-the-Bus Routine.

I heard a rumor the Yanks corked their bras.

Be sure to milk this competition for all it's worth.

It's not nearly as impressive as it sounds. The earth mommas in Berserkeley tend not to wear bras, and the gravitational effects are, shall we say, not uplifting.

Hey Tim, please post some pix of pert young nipples standing to attention, to illustrate this story.

Has anyone else noticed that the spokesthingummy's name is - wait for it - Lee King?

Does this mean the story's a joke, or this this a sign of nominative determinism?

USA! We're number one! USA! USA! US---oh, wait a sec. That was Berkeley. Congratulations Berkeley.

Just as well they did it at Berkley- not much lactation goes on over the other side of the Bay.
(And since no-one else has stated the obvious, I always thought Berkley was full of complete tits).

They based their results on raw numbers of participants?

What about the quality? The volumes consumed? Suck time? The happiness quotient of the actual diners who gave their afternoons?

This is like a wine show gold medal being given to whoever enters the most bottles.

I love the line "international tit-for-tat"
