Pink Ribbons Everywhere: Lay off the Eggs

Watch a football game and you’ll catch your QB decked with pink cleats. Walk through the make-up counters at the mall and you’ll notice pink lipsticks, perfume bottles and nail polish.

Susan G. Komen is everywhere. As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October’s normal hue of black and orange now rages pink. Halloween costumes over. Pink ribbons abound.

And now, those little swirls sit atop the Eggland’s Best dozen.

We don’t have to get into the idea that this “pink washing” may not even do any good. It might not rattle the public’s attention or increase donations.

Cancer fucking sucks. Obviously.

But, seriously, lay off the eggs.

    I don’t know, I think eggs are one of the least annoying places I have seen the pink-football uniforms just look silly; there has to be a better way.

    If they start making the yolks pink, it may be time for ‘occupy eggland’

    I don’t know. I hate be be a corny Mccornster, but I think it’s great that the pink ribbons are everywhere. Cancer DOES suck and the more people that know it, the more funding will go to cancer research. 🙂
