Needless to say, they were empty

In Cyprus, they've set a record of a unique kind...
PAPHOS, Cyprus (AP) - Campaigners in Cyprus on Sunday said they had created the world's longest chain of bras to raise awareness of breast cancer and win a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
The activists said they managed to string together some 114,000 bras, beating the current record held in Singapore since 2003, of 79,000 bras.
"We know how many bras we have and we have beaten the record," said Gina Ghillyer, an activist with the local cancer patients support group that organized the event.
Hundreds of people assembled at this seaside city's small harbour early Sunday to help form a colourful chain of bras donated from around the world.
Unfortunately, no photos were available to document this claim at this time.
