I KNOW we are long since done with the list of the stupidest items bearing the pink ribbon, but last week I was getting gas and when I walked into the store to grab a bottle of water, I could not stop laughing. The guy behind the counter was ready to call those people with the funny jackets. I could see it in his eyes. It would have taken far too long for me to tell him the story.
Here? This requires no story. I think this qualifies as the Official Most Stupid Item of 2011. Unless, of course, the pepper spray has some magic power and it has the power to obliterate cancer cells. After all, I'd sooner smack down a hairy, scary stranger in a dark alley. That scary stranger is a piece of cake. This sneaky cancer stuff? Not too much.
FYI-This cost $10.00. I have no clue how much money is going anywhere but I figure every woman should have some form of defense. It was a "need purchase" ... not a "pink purchase."
Maybe I will use it on the next person who tells me, "You got a good cancer!" or, my most favorite, "Wow, a free boob job!!" I wonder if the pepper spray burns as much as those damn chemo drugs did when they were dripping into my vein?
