As weird as it sounds, the October lay your boobs on random stuff and Instagram a pic campaign is getting lots of support.

What’s the purpose of the fad?

Relieving some of the awkwardness women feel laying their breasts on the flat surface during a mammogram. The people behind this hope it increases the number of woman who are tested on a regular basis.

Oh, then there are these guys from simplepickup.com. They motor-boated their way through a fund raising effort of their own.

The guys donated $20 to breast cancer research for each woman who let them shove their faces into their boobs and say ‘brrrrr!!!!’

The self-proclaimed lady killers raised $7000 for the charity, who thanked them by rejecting the donation, forcing them to pull down their video and stop using the charities name.

Kind of offensive, but a donation’s a donation.

The lesson here folks; breast cancer caught early through regular mammogram testing is beaten by over 90% of women.

And if all it takes is to get a little silly to raise awareness. We got your back.

Remember ladies; mam where it counts, the doctor’s office.
