I consulted an expert on this matter and she informed me that the plural for titmouse is even more iregular than you might expect. It comes from the problems created by a compound word made from two word which both have irregular plurals themselves. "Teetsmouse" sounds unpleasant and was commonly mistaken for a singular. "Titmice" sounds less pleasant and led to several embarassing incidents with pest control services. "Teetsmice" is the worst of both worlds. After much heated debate on the subject the IBTC formally adopted the term "boosombeasts" during their 1966 convention.

Even more controversy has been caused by the correct collective noun. It's patently ridiculous to have "flocks" or "flights" of boosombeasts. The "bounce", "jiggle" and "wobble" have all met with wide acceptance. The appropriate term is determined by the size of the tits being described so problems arise if you have tits of different sizes.

You may occasionally see the deprecated term "cleavage" still in use but it is only appropriate for the rare occasions when you only have two tits.

Thank you for your scholarly research. Thumbsup

Good technique and a properly sized cup are vital. One of the simpler solutions is that naked tits don't suffer from cup crowding as you can see below.

Uh yeah, nice try, Jenny. Everyone knows there's no such thing as a golden boobie. There's only the blue booby.

I wonder how long this thread will go until it dies out.

RE: Jdog's Great Tit Thread
ornithologists on both sides of the pond are baffled by unusual behavior in the tit community. The titmouse is known to mate for life, and yet they will congregate outside the mating couple with other birds, often of other species for no apparent reason. This is not for food, nor safety; there seems to be no evolutionary advantage offered by these random gatherings of a few birds. Often they are seen outside pubs and bowling alleys, at the park in most any weather.
And yet, individual birds that do not engage in these groupings are often the ones at a disadvantage when feeding or choosing nesting sites. Scientists are seeing but the tip if the iceberg, but it would be pointless to speculate on unsupported evidence of these so called "boosom buddy" groupings.
A proposed double blind study may get to the bottom of this strange behavior.
