obscenity

There's a new tv ad running for pampers at the moment. It's in conjunction with Unicef. One pack of nappies equals one vaccination. lots of pictures of dusty 'third world' children getting shots juxtaposed with glowing, contented ('western') babies. Pampers - I don't know off hand which of the enormous conglomerates you belong to, but I'd be willing to bet you could just afford to give those vaccinations to unicef - not wait months til a million mums cut out and send a million vouchers - or whatever the scheme is. In fact i wouldn't be surprised if you even belong to the same big pharma type group that owns the fucking drugs. Whether you do or not - you disgust me.

Amen, sister. I'll just write my own check check, Pampers Company, without a donating any of it to your dirty ass. Now I'm riled.

Absolutely! I feel similarly about alot of consumer gimmicks, but this one is outrageous--but pampers or the sick babies will die? Ugh.

i haven't witnessed this atrocity. it's like all the 'click on this link' and we'll stop whatever it is.
i feel similarly about all the charity stalkers in the street who hassle you to sign up but are quite happy taking way over the minimum wage from the charity to do it. hmmmm
it's an odd world.

amen.

add to that the disgusting factor of diapers filled with fresh immunization-rich poo that goes directly into a landfill to then enrich our earth with poo *and* immunizations that then enter our water- and food-systems.

SWEET.

let's get the whole world into disposables! then the entire planet can just blow the fuck up. *poof*
