Extra-Supportive II

“You couldn’t make up something like this,” said a prosecutor in Amherst County, Va. An unidentified woman stopped by the courthouse to fill out some paperwork, and made reference to her “daughter” that she had “found on eBay.” When curious court officials asked her to explain, the woman pulled a few-inch-tall marmoset from her bra. “I can’t understand why the deputy didn’t see her,” the woman said, since “she was peeking out” from her cleavage. When they asked why the animal was in her bra, she replied, “Well, would you leave your child at home? She has to be close to me.” A courthouse security officer was asked how the monkey got through the metal detector. His reply: “It wasn’t armed.” (JW/Lynchburg News and Advance) ...Which is his way of saying he did, in fact, look down her cleavage.
