Fake breasts no longer just for fetishes

_42545369_knittedbreasts203.jpgA hospital in Liverpool has a high demand for fake breasts. They're asking for donations towards fifty fakies, which may be a tall glass to fill. Surprisingly silicon is not on the menu. Au contraire, they're requesting hand-fondledcrafted boobs that have only been poked at by needles. Yes, knitted fakies have become all the rage for teaching new babes how to breastfeed.

"Kate McFadden, the hospital's infant feeding co-ordinator, has already knitted several and has called in the services of her mother, a keen knitter. The breasts are produced in a variety of skin shades."

The hospital continues to ask for more naughty knitters to pitch in. Give it a week before Orange County comes to fend-for-the-fakes.
