Pink Me Stupid Redux

I previously wrote about that irritating Breast Cancer Campaign and its inherent pink-me-into-a-coma-but never-find-a-cure premise.

But Lawdy Mawdy, courtesy of the NRA, we present the following, shown recently at a gun show. Yes, they're real.



This sure takes the pink cake in the pink-me-stupid department.

Designed to blow that pesky cancer right out of you.

Along with everything else.

Runner-up prize would have to go to Kentucky Fried Chicken who have now introduced a Pink Bucket of chicken to further the pinkwash cause. Omitting to announce that their product of fat and hormones would more than likely cause the disease.

  1. They are enough to put me off pink for life!

    What bugs me, is the number of different charities raising money for 'Cancer' research. If all the fragments went to the one place then perhaps there might be a chance of learning something.

    Nowadays I avoid all the hype by deciding at the beginning of the year who I want to support and stick with it.

  2. Oh, I'm so glad I'm not the only one who finds this self-aggrandizing, strictly American pretense at playing the charitable a nauseating fiasco. How much is siphoned off to pay for executive jets, fancy limousines, and boozy corporate weekends in expensive hotels, I wonder?

  3. PS Yes, I know the charity isn't confined to Americans, but who else is so expert at making such an utter ass of themselves - while coining in a buck or two in the process?

  4. I don't think I've ever eaten KFC, but I'm surprised they went with the pink, given what it signifies in the context of cooking chicken.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
