Green Room - Week 13 - Day 7

Someone asked me about that Haiti joke yesterday. (They must have missed the ones that I made before!)

I don't know the various places on line that you go when you aren't here. (Always a mistake. The Internet is a horrible place. Just stay here. Don't even check your friends list, they are awful people. . . scheming against you. Just stay here. ;p) but the one thing I've been seeing since pretty much day 1 is people using the situation in Haiti for their own personal agenda.

"Do this - for Haiti". "Do that - for Haiti". Even if there isn't really a connection.

There are people who are doing various projects, and really donating the money. Thumbs up for them. But there are also plenty of people just throwing the name around. "Why are we talking about this when people need our help in Haiti????"

My joke was a take on that. Like I said, someone asked, so I wanted to make sure that everyone knew.

My cousin is actually on the ground over there right now. So while I'll joke about pretty much anything, the continuing seriousness of the situation has not escaped my attention.

Make sure to cast your votes and make sure your favorites are around for another day! Protest the regime in Iran - vote!

(Damn, just did it again!)

How are you doing on this Hump Day?
