Pink Lady Can Fly !

Just when you think you've seen it all, in terms of tacky pink products, I was shocked to see this horrendous little number on the Facebook "targeted" advertisements section of my profile page.

Some of you might recall my entry last year introducing you to Pink Lady.

Anyway it seems as though Pink Lady has now grown wings, and won first place for her glittery garish costume at the Bizarro World Mardi Gras Parade. I wish she would take some of that magic glitter, sprinkle it on her wings and fly the hell out of my face, or at least off of my Facebook page.

Apparently the Facebook genius advert bots, think, that because I became a fan of the Breast Cancer Action Facebook page, I am now interested in all things Breast Cancer, including this awful selection of exploitative pink products. This seems especially ironic, since the Breast Cancer Action group, is the architect and facilitator of the excellent "Think Before You Pink" campaign designed to rid us of these very assaults on the average consumer.

So my point in all of this is, that if anyone thinks that I might like to receive one of these products to help me in my fight against breast cancer, please think again. Quite frankly, I would rather be poked with sharp needles, ingest a serious amount of deadly chemicals, and give my left tit, than have someones hard earned money go to furthering the profits of these corporate buffoons.
