Earlier today when we logged onto Facebook, we were confused to see that several of our female friends had posted status updates that said things like, “I like it on the floor” or “I like it on the kitchen counter.” Luckily, our meme-savvy friends at Urlesque came through with an explanation. It’s all for a good cause: to increase awareness of October Breast Cancer Awareness month. (Just like last year’s “what color is your bra?” thing, which scored 140,000 new Facebook fans for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.) Click through to view the message that has been circulating.
“Remember last year the post about what color bra you were wearing at the moment? The purpose was to increase awareness of October Breast Cancer Awareness month. It was a tremendous success and we had men wondering for days what was with the colors and it made it to the news. This year’s game has to do with your handbag/purse, where we put our handbag the we get home for example ‘I like it on the couch,’ ‘I like it on the kitchen counter,’ ‘I like it on the dresser’ well you get the idea. Just put your answer as your status with nothing more than that and cut n paste this message and forward to all your FB female friends to their inbox. The bra game made it to the news. Let’s see how powerful we women really are!!! REMEMBER – DO NOT PUT YOUR ANSWER AS A REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE- PUT IT IN YOUR STATUS!!! PASS THIS TO EVERY LADY YOU KNOW 🙂 send it to random girls so it can be passed on to everyone!”
What do you think? Is this a good way to spread awareness, or is it just a gender-exclusive annoyance? Do you think the only way to get people to participate is to pick something that sounds like it could be suggestive?
