I'm outraged!

In my opinion, the elderly should be held to the highest regard in our society. They have made personal sacrifices to insure our health and safety and, in wartime, our freedom.
So imagine my shock when I logged onto Bnzworld and saw a bright animated banner suggesting that I "Throw snowballs at Gramps". I do not feel the 80 something gentleman in the caricature could survive a snowball to the head and God forbid it's one of them ice balls like the one that hit my "special" cousin Billy when he was 5.
Just something to think about. Thank you.

Hmmm....

Was Billy "special" before or after the ice/snowball incident?


Personally the ad that bothers me most is the infernal smilies one, mostly because it interacts with my graphic card and makes what I'm typing shimmer and fade in/out unless I shrink the browser window and then scroll the ad off the viewable screen. It's kind of a PITA to do that.


Seriously, my sympathies for your cousin either way.

Well Billy seemed fine before the incident. When the ice ball hit him in the forehead, he reeled back and fell face first into Uncle Jedidiah's still. We don't know if the trauma from the projectile caused his specialness or the fact that he was submerged in low-grade wood alcohol for 22 minutes as it took that long for one of us to stop laughing and come to his aid.

In general I don't like old people. They are cantankerous, bigoted, slow, repetitive and tend to smell of piss. Think of Jayhawk and BruceR to get my drift. I'm lucky, all my grandparents are dead.

IMO trading in 20 hippo carcasses for a free iPod is so depraved and I question worldwide proliference and acceptance of rampant consumerism.
