Oh, I don't know.. I think the Oz government's solution to the problem might not be all that different.

As a typical over-reaction, I think it's very clever!! +1 from me.

Huge international outcry has resulted in the World Incendiary Materials Precautionary Service (W.I.M.P.S.) to develop a less butch version of the SLUG-P suit.

The newest version of protective gear is called the W.A.F.F.L.E.R. (Warm And Fuzzy Flammable Liquid Explosion Resistant) suit.

It provides all of the safety of the SLUG-P suit while allowing the wearer to look like a cute widdle bunny wabbit.

The suit is made of a tight kevlar-weave with titanium plate inserts in strategic areas. The asbestos-meshed neoprene lining provides thermal protection from combusting canned goods as well as doubling as an immersion suit and PFD due to its positive buoyancy characteristics.

One ear contains a powerful EPIRB transmitter, while the other can support the optional SAM (surface to air missile) modification kit.

The WAFFLER suit is available in white (as shown), flourescent yellow (also called 'yum-yum yellow' - very appealing to some species of shark) or, the very popular 'A Christmas Story' pink.
