A bra that does double duty:  Boobs & Food
Japanese urban farmers can wear this new undergarment made by Triumph
and grow their own rice in recyclable plastic pots. 
“Over the last year, young Japanese women have taken a tremendous interest in agriculture.  We wanted other women to experience farming as well, ” Triumph spokeswoman Yoshiko Masuda told Reuters.
“Home kits that allow people to grow their own rice are very popular online.  We thought that it would be fun if a bra could give people the same experience,”  said Masuda.
“The bra fits much better than it looks.  Wearing it puts me in such a fun mood,” said model Reiko Aoyama.
The bra comes with a pair of detachable farming gloves and a plastic water hose with seedlings that acts as a belt.
I don’t know about you, but I might be willing to give it a go.
