Annals of Improbable Research - A patented brassiere that converts into a gas mask - actually into a pair of gas masks - could conceivably aid the sudden Mexican and worldwide defense against swine flu. . .

U.S. patent #7255627 was granted to Elena N. Bodnar of Hinsdale, Illinois, and Raphael C. Lee and Sandra Marijan of Chicago on August 14, 2007 for an "Garment device convertible to one or more facemasks." Their intent, they say, is "to provide a garment which is operable to be converted into a facemask" and "to increase accessibility to facemasks."

"The bra has two cups. . . The inner portions of the cups are disconnectable, and the outer portions of the cups are disconnectable. As such, the bra is separable into two halves. Each half is securable to a user's face to form a facemask."

The avian flu scare resulted from factory chicken farms. The swine flu scare is a similar fraud resulting from Smithfield's Mexican subsidiary. In both cases the maker of tamiflu (in which Rumsfeld is a major stockholder) hits the jackpot.
