Mrs Historalix had another problem which was to keep her kids occupied while she was tending to her daily chores. The blown-
She then saw that the cups of the bra, if folded somewhat inward, took on a rounded shape and with that an idea shaped in her inventive mind. She cut more triangles and started to sew them together and to her great joy twenty of these completed a near sphere. Two fresh boar bladders pushed through an open slit were then inflated by mouth and lungs, the urethrae folded over, tightly tied and also pushed inside; the slit then sewn up. This ball was a vast improvement and lasted much longer than a plain bladder. Like the bra this ball was freely copied, there being no copyright legislation yet.
What is important is that the inflated ball was now in England and they really loved it. It was not perfectly round but adequate for kids and amateurs.
It so happened that with the discovery and plunder of the new worlds by the English, mainly Egypt and China and to a lesser extent South Africa as there was initially very little to plunder, not only objects were brought home but also live curiosities to be put on show for the public. A well known live example from South Africa is Saartjie Baardman, displaying boobs without the bra though decorated with strings of beads, which was more acceptable to very conservative ladies than a scanty bra, and a bare bum with a patch of hog skin providing some of covering and held up by a thong around the waist. Not generally known are the two knobkerrie fighters, rather similarly dressed to Saartjie but without elaborate strings of beads when going into action, from the South Eastern, Transkei, area of South Africa who with their knob sticks were taken to London for exhibition fighting.
Unfortunately one of the kerries was washed overboard during a storm when they rounded the Cape and John Smith of Oxford Street Londen, who makes walking sticks and umbrellas for Lords was some weeks later approached to replace it . This was a masterpiece replica in shape and size of the remaining stick but heavier and very rigid as it was made of rose wood. In the very first exhibition fight Sipo not aware of the lethal properties of the replacement let go with a hit only intended to stun his partner, but killed him. The promoter offered training and good reward for a replacement but no-
