Overheard in Java: Part I

As I was walking back to my seat I overheard a curious snippet of conversation, tidily out of context:
...she just had her boobs casted...
Now it was startling at first, but upon reflection I have become simply compelled to seek out all the propositions this interesting snippet could possibly represent. I've hit some dead ends however, and I could really use your help.

I think it's clear that the keyword here is "cast". What could that mean, in the broadly logical sense? Did she make arrangements for her breasts to appear in a movie? Covered or uncovered? How could it be said of her then, that she "had" them cast? Did she not have to audition? Does she know someone on the inside - perhaps the director? Or did the director happen to notice such perfect breasts whilst standing in line for a churro at Silverwood? How would that conversation unfold?
Director: Hey, I see you have a set of perfect breasts, there.
Woman: Oh these old things?
Or perhaps she was a little more straightforward about it:
Oh yeah, I really lucked out in the boob department. I understand there is a shortage of perfect breasts in the world, so I have taken steps to prevent any damage coming to mine. Do you like them?
Or maybe they were thrown, like bait from a fishing pole. Is that possible? Are her breasts detachable somehow? Let's cut this line of thinking short right here.

No... I bet it was that a mold was made of them. Bronze? Did she get her boobs bronzed for posterity? Maybe she knows that perfect breasts are like really good parking spots: temporary. Maybe she wanted to remember them in her old age, or maybe she wanted her husband to have access to a physical representation of her glory days (which are apparently waning as this is being typed). Or maybe the cast was made of her boobs as a means of communicating to the surgeons just how her friend wants hers to look?

Did she break a bone in her chest requiring her torso to be stabilized in fiber glass? Maybe she is in traction. But what a strange way to communicate that?

Maybe - I got it - maybe the speaker meant "cast" like one would cast a vote! But what would that even mean?

Any theories?

  1. Maybe she lost mobility in her arms and legs and has to vote with her breasts. Very common thing for women to struggle with.
