Also, checking my Facebook for this it turns out that most of my ‘friends’ on there doing this ‘I like it on the’ thing don’t even know it’s for breast cancer awareness… ironically.
I have to question these things. I’m not trying to be all ‘ooh, I’m going against a big fad just to be controversial’, but I just don’t get how tricking people into thinking you like to get fucked on a photocopier, or just saying a colour and hoping guys never find out it’s the colour of your bra, is helping raise awareness of breast cancer?
Like I said, I’m not just trying to rip the piss out of this. I’d really love to know.
Boomstick, it’s a way for teenage girls to be stupid and trashy while raising awareness for something that literally everyone besides tribal people in the jungles of god knows where already knows about.
I did not know what it meant, nor did I care. So, that means Jessica likes her purse/handbag on the photocopier? How. Unbelievably. Ridiculous. And some of my good friends are buying into this crap. God. I need new friends.
I doubt she actually puts her handbag on the photocopier. That’s one of the things that is so stupid about it. Most of the people participating are just trying to be trashy. I know where some of my female friends put their purses, and they’re not nearly as interesting as what they claim. You put your purse on a hook in the hall closet, not on the floor in the hallway bitch! Stop looking for attention! Sometimes I hate being the same gender as these people.
Natasha et al., unfortunately i have friends WELL past the age of thirty who are doing this meme, including my wife. i seriously DO NOT get how making a lame double-entendre raises awareness of anything, when you’re not even supposed to tell the marks what’s going on.
I am a woman. I love boobs. I respect the fact the incidence of breast cancer is high – very high. The highest. I get it. BUT, I am over it. We are aware, ok. We are aware. And this shit does nothing for its cause. All it does is make me want to support something like ass cancer, instead.
It’s stupid things like this that make women seem naive (which most of us are). How does one logically progress from a sexually ambiguous meme on facebook to support for breast cancer awareness? Is it that these women don’t think at all? Are they sheep? Should I let these questions keep me up at night?
How does a reference to where one keeps one’s handbag have ANYTHING to do with one’s breasts? For that matter what about stating random colours which happen to possibly be the colour of your bra? Are women absolutely NUTS?
If women really wanted to raise awareness of breast cancer, they would go around topless with a sign saying ‘donate money to keep these hot!’ (My wife suggested instead having topless peep shows).
caral, yeah they can, but the incidence isn’t that high. Men need to worry about their prostates. That’s the male equivalent to breast cancer in terms of incidence. They don’t get the nice pink ribbons, though. It hardly rates. I think they can grow a mo in November or some crap, but it’s a prostate, and it’s not pretty, therefore it’s overshadowed by the October boob-fest.
I sound angry, and I am. There are other cancers, people.
I agree with mad2physicist’s idea. Going topless for a month sounds rather appealing.
But you’re right, wordpervert, all cancers should get equal amounts of awareness, because they’re all equally devastating, and they all need cures just as badly as breast cancer. I believe we had a cancer awareness “week” at my old high school, where every day was a different type of cancer awareness day, but that was still only 5 types of cancers, and quite frankly, what does being aware have to do with finding a cure? I’m pretty sure all we did was wear different color ribbon every day. We didn’t talk about anything or hear any speeches or advertisements for donations or anything.
Kelly #33, that’s one of the few things you’ve said that I’ve ever read, took note of, and shock horror, actually agree with. I really, really would like to see a row of boobs down the board. I’m sure I’m not alone.
Don’t get too excited, though, my dear. I pretty much have, and will continue, to disregard you. What has been done cannot be undone. It takes time for most people to forgive and forget. That is all.
I mean, I was in a pretty good mood today, and then all of a sudden someone just kills it. I finally feel like a whole new person, and people can’t just let the old person go. Just… nevermind. I’m going to bed. Thanks for that.
Saffer, I think you’re joking(?), but in case you’re not, no, my friend, I will not apologise. I’ve nothing else to say to Kelly. Not yet, anyway. I’ll always offer a rightful apology. One is not due here. She’s spewed out nothing but hate and bigotry, and a day or two of niceties has yet to temper that. I don’t hear her apologising for all her bullshit.
I’ve taken my fair share of heat, deserving or not – and taken it like a man. Few, if any apologies, have ever been forthcoming. I don’t expect them. It’s the internets after all.
Umm, could someone please be kind enough to explain the first one, I’m really uninitiated. (Gulp). What do Photocopiers have to do with Breast cancer? Do they emit radiation that help cure it? Or, does the heat just melt away all the virus? I’m scratching my head out here, someone, PLEASE HELP!!!
Never get the emails about breast cancer.. Guess people assume I’m heartless or something..
Of course, I’m possibly one of the few females in the developed world who doesn’t own a handbag. They’re pointless. Pockets FTW.
I also have a vendetta against puns. My first name is Clare, my life is filled with lame puns.
NO, you are NOT being funny when you point out the clear skies, the fact that someone said clearly or that I’ve been asked to clear something up. No. Just no.
Wow Jessica is a douche, not only does she give away the “secret” to all of her facebook friends, but now for all of lamebook. For shame. For shame.
Really though I don’t get the point. I mean, yes a lot of guys asked about the bra one (well, so I hear, I don’t know anyone who did it).. but so what? Women aren’t meant to tell anyone male about it, it doesn’t raise money..everyone knows about breast cancer already. So… I don’t get it.
#46 maybe you should read previous posts first before you “sign up to say…” (dear lord that’s annoying). Word made a good point. If she needs to grow up then so do I, because I hold the same sentiments
@alordslums: oh yeah, Schopenhauer was an idiot. In fact all the German philosophers were idiots starting with Kant on until at least Heidegger (and I think he was still pretty bad). Nietzsche was the only one who wasn’t an idiot, he was just completely batshít insane.
That doesn’t make Schopenhauer’s remarks about humour incorrect, though.
Thanks mbmott! Actually, the real issue here is that I have an opinion that is different from theirs. In reality, I never said anything offensive or personally attacked anyone, except for using the word “whore” once. All I have ever done is debate my views and defend my arguments. The reason these people have a problem with me is because my views are not the same as theirs.
As for the “spewing hate” bit, I direct you to the recent juggalo post. I don’t even know what a juggalo is, but i have never, EVER seen such a mass of collective hatred toward one group of people. So according to all these people, it’s okay to hate SOME people, but there are some people you’re simply not allowed to hate, and I have been condemned for hating one of those groups of people.
All these posts of nothing but puns are getting really annoying. It was funny at first, now it’s so tedious.
Also Micheal is an asshole. Most of his puns don’t even make sense.
And this breast cancer meme is annoying. How does raising awareness (not that anyone is unsure of what it is; also how is this supposed to raise awareness?) do any good for the cause? If everyone who was posting about it was actually donating money for research or something, yeah, that would be cool. But no, this is just a clusterfuck of stupid.
Muepsilongamma, what taboo-to-hate group did you spew hatred towards?
Please be aware that scientists have not yet definitively decided whether juggalos should be classified as people. (I’m kidding, in case you can’t tell. I actually don’t have anything against fans of ICP. They may have bad taste, but they’re better than fans of Bieber. It is kind of dumb to wrap your identity up so much in a band though).
Oh…hey…, this is why my wife suggested that women should do titty dances to raise money, rather than awareness.
I have a pathological hatred toward teen mothers who got pregnant because they were irresponsible, so not rape victims or anything. This probably stems from my parents’ teachings, and the many times I have lost friends to teen pregnancy (they got knocked up, dropped out of school, and were never heard from again.) I also am not a fan of deadbeat dads who knock a girl up and then run once they figure out they got her pregnant and then refuse to pay child support. This is probably because I watched it happen too many times to too many people, and there’s really no excuse for it.
Apparently, it’s not okay to hate either of these groups of people, although Lamebook users have yet to explain why. They all assume that I hate EVERYONE because of my religious views, when I really don’t hate that many people, and those that I do hate are due to personal issues, rather than my religion.
i mostly hate you because you’ve turned a site which is full of light-hearted commentary and badinage into one where boring, lengthy epistles on the morality of such-and-such or so-and-so are espoused. you, and a few others like you are ruining lamebook. if you want to discuss whether teenage mothers are good or bad, GO ELSEWHERE. if you want to tell us why fat people shouldn’t be laughed at, GO ELSEWHERE. and most of all, if you want to tell people tortuous stories about the minutiae of your upbringing and the ramifications it had for your later life &c&c GO ELSEWHERE!!!!
a) lamebook is not a public service
b) you have some kind of personality/delusional disorder – don’t burden us all with it.
c) no-one cares.
Alfred, this time she mentioned it b/c I asked, and thus had an excuse. If that is the right word. And I asked because I didn’t recall seeing this and thought it might have happened before my time, so to speak.
Alord, where are the fat people to laugh at? I don’t see any. Oh perhaps you meant me…
Anyway, I thought lamebook was meant for lengthy epistles about babysitters who like it up the butt. And for complaining about absolutely USELESS SENSELESS MEMES. And trying to start a female toplessness meme.
I’m sorry I’m ruining lamebook for you guys, but you started the arguments. All I ever did was state my opinion, but SOMEONE had to bitch and moan about how “bigotted” my opinion was. None of this would have happened if I was just allowed to state my opinion about something and then leave with my reputation unscathed. You people just can’t let it go. Even after I tried to stop stating my opinion and just have some fun, you all had to bring it up! This is not on me, folks, it’s on you!
Oh, in 33 it was my idea to change all of our icons to boobs. My bad.
I wanted to drop the irrelevant issues days ago. That’s why I started commenting more light-heartedly. But then people kept complaining about how I used to act. If they’re going to continue bitching, it’s never going to end.
me too mad… it’s high school drama and it’s starting to get so embarassing that I tried to address her under my boyfriend’s old name: AlfredENueman (which ended up being a FAIL because my website link is still on there!) Anyway, imagine that! an anonymous, anonymous identity- really goes to show how I want no association on this
Oh, so you’re saying that I “indirectly” hi-jacked your comment threads?
What about the comment threads that I did nothing to? There were a few threads recently where I simply posted something that I hoped would get a few laughs, and then left it at that. Then, a few people like alordslums and wordpervert decided to start disrespecting me like I had personally done them wrong. You gonna blame me for that?
