How does a Wal-Mart scold compare to a librarian shush?
I still got the photo, didn't I?
I'm convinced this pink issue is a terrible ploy to guilt people into buying things that they think will support breast cancer awareness.
Probably thought you were a mole from Target.You're shifty-looking like that.
INCOMING NITPICK! WARNING, FOLLOWING APPLIES ONLY TO THIS SPECIFIC IMAGE. I think in this particular case, the pink is a breast cancer thing rather than a "tee-hee girls like pink" thing. The pink ribbon in the upper right is something of the symbol for the anti-boobrot movement, and every October folks are encouraged to adjust hue to raise awareness*, etc. Now why the anti-breast cancer forces have decided pink is the optimal choice for representing their cause, that I'm inclined to think ties neatly back into your original point. Either that, or it's a nipple joke.-Stingray*I do not understand the purpose, myself. I'm reasonably sure anybody not of the socio-economic bracket likely to interact with the po-po over the contents of Mookie's pants, or those experts in the art of tinfoil origami is not only aware of breast cancer, but is also aware that it is bad. But I suppose "raising awareness" is more palatable than "Give us money so we can please save lives and keep boobs from being ruined" for some damnfool reason.
I call October (is it October?) "National Breast Awareness Month".
"(I got scolded by a Walmart employee for taking this photo.)"Wait, what?
Why the heck were they scolding you for taking a picture?Obviously they're taking the advice of Homelandf Security seriously. I mean you're definitely a "domestic extremist"
Stingray - Doesn't matter if they stick a cause ribbon on it or not, they're not selling pink bubble wrap to men.Tam - taking photos in a Walmart seems to be verboten.
"they're not selling pink bubble wrap to men"Why not? They sell pink fiberglass insulation to men...
jdege - Yes, but nobody actually SEES pink fiberglass insulation once it's installed.
About a month ago, I was on a call with the local fire department. (I was foolish enough to arrive on scene first at a possible HAZMAT situation and thus was saddled with "incident commander" status).Being a "trained observer" and all, I noticed that the FD guys were wearing pink T-shirts rather than their customary navy blue T-shirts prior to their donning of hazmat gear. I later found out that the pink uniforms were for "raising awareness about breast cancer". It seemed a little over the top to me at the time.
"Tam - taking photos in a Walmart seems to be verboten."*perplexed*In a world of ubiquitous cell-phone cams, no-photo policies seem so quaintly archaic.
