But does it really taste like space? Naturally, we were skeptical…but also curious enough to run out and buy a can. So, come along with us on a journey into the depths of spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace!

The amount of attention the “boob sweater/shirt” has received is mind-boggling. Well, not that mind-boggling when you consider what the sweater accentuates; if you want to garner some attention on the Internet, what’s under your shirt is a quick way to do that, and that goes for both men and women!

Fake-out front-zippered t-shirt will literally give you the chest of a swimsuit model

Earlier this month, we took a look at a revealing front-zippered swimsuit being sold by Japanese novelty goods chain Village Vanguard. Retail is a tough business, though, and we can imagine some shoppers are unconvinced that they should spend their money on a garment that consists of such precious little fabric.
