An old interrogation and torture device: basically a set of tongs with two pairs of big claws.
Red-hot or ice-cold, they tore to shreds the breasts of countless women who were convicted of heresy, adultery, self-induced abortion, erotic white magic, or some other crime.
Often, one breast of an unmarried mother would be subjected to this agony.
“'Are they ready?!' one of the women called over to the oven. 'Ready!' a burly, middle-aged man answered, wielding a pair of breast rippers! The torturers stood and watched with glee!
The red-hot pinchers jabbed deep into the flesh of the right breast of Britney Spears, searing her. She squawked like a parrot as the man suddenly yanked the tongs away! The implant fell away as the breast tore, the sac bursting on the stone floor!"
