    Okay?

    What is the surname of the man who invented the brassiere?
    They call me "Nana"

    I think this answers the question

    I censored it - didn't want to offend

    (dial up stinks.......)

    In America, Mary Phelps Jacob was granted the first U.S. patent for the brassiere in 1913. She was aided in this work by her French maid, Marie. Her invention is most widely recognized as the predecessor to the modern bra. She sold the patent to the Warner Brothers Corset Company in Bridgeport, Connecticut, for $1,500 (or over $25,600 in today's money). Warner eventually made an estimated $15 million off Caresse's patent.

    The oft-repeated story that the brassiere was invented by a man named Otto ***zling is false.

    No, eBay frowns upon the sale of human organs.

    Fodder for the not-very-well-known-spin-off Anatomic eBay?
    Is the actual answer disposable, expendable or similar?
