invention idea::: PIT STOPS::: Okay, so heres the deal. Youre a busy lady. Youre running around town. Your every second of life is consumed with school, work, homemaking, and fun times. So what happens when your underarms start to reflect that busy lifestyle? Uh-oh. Its not like youre going to slap more deodorant on in the middle of the day, because then you’ll end up with layer upon layer of cakey deodorant pits. not so fresh, my friend, not so fresh. what you need is to take a moment, pause, and use some Pit Stops. kind of like Wet Ones for your pits. okay, no. its exactly like Wet Ones for your pits (but with a catchy double entendre name and sold in the deodorant aisle). So , you wipe wipe and voila! And commercial man voice goes like this: “Pit Stops: Your bad aroma is no-more-a.”
So, there’s this article in the paper today about the dolphin slaughter in Taiji Japan (need more info, see The Cove). Apparently after a recent “hunt” they let the young dolphins go and just killed the mature ones. As though that is less horrific. The article: http://www.staradvertiser.com/news/breaking/104789889.html
Anyway, yes, its great to be making a big hub-bub about this Taiji Dolphin slaughter, it is truly disgusting. But really it makes me think about how dumb we are for not seeing the horror in our own country. Its kind of ridic that we point and shout “Boo!” to this one small region of Japan, when the entire USA has been slaughtering all variety of animals on a larger and more diabolical scale. Factory farms are far far far far worse than these dolphin hunts. It is pot calling the kettle black, and it really annoys me. Ugh, I just wish the passion stirred up for The Cove could be rallied towards all animal welfare and not merely dolphins in another country.
