That kind of reminds me of The National Lampoon's "Mail
a meal" campaign from the early 1970's. If a kid didn't
want to eat his broccoli, he could mail it to the starving
children in Africa. I haven't read one of their magazines
in years, I hope they are still blatantly politically
Sadly, they went belly up years ago. Cable TV and Internet proved too
much competition for the amusement dollar. (MAD magazine will likely
follow them to that great newsstand in the sky shortly. They are down to
a quarterly publication at this point. In publishing world, that means
'start sending out resumes'.)
Their most reliable brain, PJ O'Rourke, is still out there, though. You
can google his name for more recent biting satire.
It's a shame in a way but since I got on to BBS's then The Interweb,
I read a write more than I did when I was in college. I used to live
in the various libraries when I was in school. Now If I want to know
something, I switch on the computer and have a world of information
at my fingertips. The only problem is having to filter out the huge
steaming piles of male bovine droppings. *snicker*
Not to mention, you have to keep reminding yourself that not all
information is on the 'net, Older stuff especially, will likely never be
on the internet. Just because Google and Bing can't find a fact does not
mean it isn't out there.
Not in Alabama, the legislature passed a law against selling sex toys.
According to this article, Texas has a similar law. Aren't Bible
thumpers as entertaining as Liberals when they get a chance to make law?
Nothing to do with the Bible - it's a public health issue.
And they're not illegal in Texas - I bought one last week for my girlfriend.
I needed a rest.
I only provided one set of batteries, though. I'm not stupid.
