The Great Nipple Hunt continues

The Great Nipple Hunt continues

: We’ve been dutifully reporting attacks of prudes on tipples and now here’s another case of national mammarophobia:

Teen actress Lindsay Lohan’s breasts have been digitally reduced for forthcoming Disney film Herbie: Fully Loaded, to avoid offending family audiences.

Test screenings for the new movie, the fourth sequel to the 1968 film The Love Bug about a Volkswagen Beetle car with a mind of its own, indicated that some parents felt Lohan’s character Maggie Peyton was too raunchy for a children’s film.

Disney technicians were forced to plough through numerous scenes – especially those showing the busty actress jumping up and down at a motor racing track, reducing her breasts by two cup sizes and raising revealing necklines on her T-shirts.

The director denies it.

The problem these days — when grown people make news hunting down nipples — is that you can’t tell the parody from the truth.

And then again, let’s not forget the surgical speculation.

All of which leads to just one conclusion: In America, breasts are news.
