If you didn't see NancyC's post Apr. 21 about "Saturated fats for the Cure", it's about the irony of the Komen Association forming a partnership with Kentucky Fried Chicken to raise money for breast cancer. You may have seen the commecial which is now running, showing pink buckets of original KFC merging with Pink Buckets of a newer form of KFC.
Last night, on The Stephen Cobert Show, he did a rather lengthy comedy/satirical bit on the KFC/Komen
partnership as well as several other ridiculous partnerships .... hopefully bringing it to the attention of even more people!
If you haven't seen the Cobert piece, the show is rerun today on the Comedy Channel at 9:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m.
and 6:30 p.m. CST. You can also go to:
www.Cobertnation.com to see it on the show's website. The KFC/Komen Partnership is about in the middle of the home page and looks like a film strip.
You can read Nancy's post here (under New posts, about the 3rd page) and if you want to take some advocacy action, that can be done on the link that Nancy provides or by going to www.thinkbeforeyoupink.org
