The self-styled pickup artists who went around motorboating women with the ostensible goal of raising money for breast cancer research had their
$7,000 donation rejected by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and the bros are blaming the "haters."
In an email to Jason, Jesse, and Kong of Simple Pickup, the BCRF said it appreciated the gang's efforts, but "out of respect for the sensitivities
of the community we serve we will be refunding your donation."
The very thought that money was raised for such a cause, but denied, is so preposterously ridiculous it's truly a reflection of the puritanically
hypocritical society we live in today.
Breast cancer uses pink ribbons to "promote awareness" on various products. Why do products go along with this? Two reasons. First, because it's
a FEEL GOOD cause. Hey, I buy these M&M's, and I'm help saving tha boobies.... Second, because from a purely marketing standpoint, it's genius.
M&M's are for kids, right? Put a punk ribbon on there that associates it with two things, breast cancer awareness and the color pink. BREASTS and
PINK. Guess what pink is used for? Painting the lips and highlighting the cheekbones in a fair amount of makeup routines. Why? Because it reminds
the opposite sex of slightly inflamed genitalia. And, well, BREASTS. Might as just say SEX on each and every M&M. It's there. On the bag. It's
called subliminal advertising, and it works. Associate an anal wart creme with SEX in some way shape or form, and suddenly there will be a noticeable
increase in sales.
But hey, two guys, sad as they are, or as cool as they are, go about and raise $7K to freely donate to Breast Cancer research. Oh, sorry, we
couldn't begin to accept that.
Well, you know what, this just supports the idea in my head that we're not REALLY working on a cure. That people love the IDEA of "working" for a
cure, but not actually obtaining one. It's all about emotion, about FEELING GOOD about walk athons, and marches, and wearing pink. But beyond that,
it's 100% BS.
All these years and not a single step closer towards truly finding a cure? ALLL of the money thrown at this, and we don't have a cure?
Give me those boobs, errr, those M&Ms....
