Here's a Slim post...cause I know you all miss them!Damn
What are checkered Vans? For that matter, what are Vans?
I seriously don't know . . .
Anyways, what are you getting your S.O. this holiday? I picked her up an iPod last year. I want to get her something equally as fun and "gadgety." She hasn't given me any ideas. Maybe DP can help!
Now, for the real point of this post -
Sitting in the theater on Saturday night, the girl and I caught a nice little commercial before the feature presentation. I don't remember exactly what it was for, but it went something like this.
"Children are suffering this holiday season. We will never stop looking for a cure. We will never turn a child away. *flash of three or four children who have undergone chemotherapy* You can help this holiday season by buying as much as you can..."
Now, this really really really bugs me. Buying as much as I can? Purchasing that scarf that will help breast cancer. Cutting tops off of boxes for whatever else. Can you see the stupidity of this? DON'T buy it! Don't buy that crap
! "But Slim, the money is donated to good causes..." Bullshit! A portion
is donated. If Americans send in 5 million tabs, the company will donate one million dollars. You know what would have been better? If Americans sent in the money that they used to purchase that crap. Don't buy this shit...don't get sucked into purchasing a band, or scarf. Donate the money directly. If you really want to help, just help.
