Are you reluctant to give yourself a breast exam? If so, there are 12 year-old Boy Scouts offering free breast exams to obtain Eagle Scout badges to do it for you.
When I first saw the interview of these two Boy Scouts on 'Today Now,' my initial thoughts, along with a good chuckle, were, "You little perverts. Fat chance you'll lure young ladies into allowing you examine their breasts to get a badge."
However, it wasn't until after it was finished watching that I realized Onion News is a gag website. Nor was I aware that Boy Scouts offering free breast exams was a different version of a humorous Breast Awareness Campaign ad from a couple of years ago in which men offer to give breast exams to women.
Though breast cancer is not a laughing matter, the video of 12 year-old Boy Scouts offering free breast exams has been linked to by tons of blogs, which means word of breast cancer awareness is getting around--and that's a good thing.
