There is a long tradition in this country of civil disobedience to protest practices we believe are immoral, harmful, or just plain irritating. My latest cause: those stupid cards that fall out of magazines.
Surely, they irritate you too?! They are a waste of paper, and it's never made sense to me why one magazine would have six subscription cards! Are there six buyers? Did someone do a study to find that we ignore the first five, but submit the sixth? And worst of all, they are a waste of the Reader's time. And the time of MY Readers is a precious commodity in these inflationary times.
But I have a simple, almost elegantly diabolical solution. If we popularize this practice, my friends, we will certainly be rid of these nuisances by this time next year.
So I call on you, my brothers, to help me in this cause! Tell your friends! Email them the link to this blog entry. To arms, my fashionistas! To the battlments, my stylists!
The answer is easy, and kinda fun--as good civil disobedience must be. These blank and irritating cards are postage paid, so I say to you, my comrades: SEND THEM BACK BLANK, AND SPREAD THE WORD.
My flying monkeys. Look at this pile! Just from a few current magazines!
This pretty much sums it up.
