The Needy and the Greedy...

You know I wrote a couple posts back about my local radio station, and I was actually going to write about something else today, but alas... a recent spate of commercials have got me changing my mind.

The basic gist of the commercial is that there's a great need that all of the people in the area of the station need to band together and fill. It's a strange thing because last year at this time... there was the same need and people actually did band together and put up lots of moolah so that there wouldn't be such a need anymore.

The commercial is so heart wrenching it really get's to you. There's a need, and if only you would step up... think of all the good that would be accomplished. You can just add your donation to your water bill and that's all you have to do. They'll take care of it from there. Just think... if all 50,000 people in the city would only give 2 dollars each, the need would be met. Can't you just see that? For only $100,000... we could seriously take care of the need...

Now I know you people that read this are very giving people, and I'm sure if you could help out, they'd let you. All donations will be gladly accepted... and after all, it does go for a worthy cause...

Oh. You want to know what the cause is? The need that is sooooooo great? The one that is such dire situation that there's no way anyone can do without it? Now why would you want to know such a thing as that? You buncha greedy bastards anyway... can't you see that there's a need? The commercial says so! So don't you go to questioning what that need is here on this blog...

Ok... you greedy bunch... Fine. I'll tell you... It's to pay for their 4th of July fireworks display. I mean how can you have a 4th of July without a 100 grand worth of fireworks? It would be such a disappointment to those who get a piece of that particular pie...

Today's mystery lyric: (Remember the rules folks, no online searching of the lyrics, if you don't know it, you don't have the answer!)

What if all you understand
Could fit in the center of our hand,
Then you found it wasn't you
Who held the sum of everything you knew

Answer to last lyric: Snuff by Slipknot.

that's a heck of a lot of money for flashbang. Why not just have a nice dunking booth and cannon show instead?

Well... they let the cat out of the bag this morning... of course after I posted.

The real figure is 30K and they're a wee bit short still. Like about half.

I think they should just have everyone show up with guns and shoot them into the air.

Fireworks are important! They're pretty. And, uh, stuff. But they are a hell of a lot less dangerous than a bunch of drunk people shooting guns in the air. So I think the real need is so you all don't accidently kill each other.

If you're shooting into the air... everyone on the ground is safe.

Now those unfortunate enough to be flying over on the other hand...

Hire a mime to act out the fireworks. It;s cheaper and, hell, everyone loves a good mime.

I dont bother with the fireworks around here. Too much of a pain to get in and out of the places. There is a resort near the camp that holds them every Thursday night, all summer. We do that instead.
