Beshine is a German model who is reported to have the largest fake breasts in the world. Each breast weighs approximately 20 pounds, about the size of a small dog. The German word for Pug, Mops, is often used as a euphemism for boob/tit/breast. “Schicke Möpse!” would be the equivalent of saying “Nice tits!” in English.
