Ask Your Ass

Kennick, Washington — The Benton Franklin Health District will not endorse the new crappy colon cancer campaign.  The Health Board wants it dumped.

Jim Beaver, Chairman of the Board, announced said, “Benton County won’t be a supporter of that particular advertisement and that campaign.”  The billboard uses provocative language to encourage testing for colon cancer.

A survey showed about one in six people in the county found the message distasteful, one in five had no opinion, but most residents didn’t know their asses from their elbows and supported it. No shit.

    I am a cheerleader for colonoscopies; Frank and I are both long-term cancer survivors. If I had followed the standard recommendations for screenings, I would not have had to endure radiation, chemo, and their many side effects.

    However, I do have to admit I find the ad shown above to be off-putting, which means it’s not effective. Too many people believe the procedure is designed to detect cancer; somehow we have to get people to understand it’s to PREVENT the cancer in the first place. “What’s up your butt?” gives exactly the wrong impression.

    And could we get a beautiful woman in there? Pleeease.

    Butt it’s that face they want you to be afraid of finding some way to BE up your Butt. Talking like a man in dimmly lit gay bars and knocking the opposing opposite sex out, then using majic to spread yo heiny wide enough to crawl up their and hide. Like a big fat ugly tapeworm with teeth.

    Bill, we agree the ad is in bad taste but I think our culture is brainwashed with beautiful women and I think the woman pictured is probably a good actress.

    Got another good laugh from Joe.

    I’m getting my 6th (!) colonoscopy in December. I’m looking online now for a “Home Colonoscopy Kit” so I won’t have to drop my pants like they made me do at summer camp.

    I can see plain or ugly women at any time just by walking out the front door. Spare me.

    As I understand it, the home kit is a designed to detect blood in the feces. Better than nothing, but a little late in the game. You want those polyps snipped out before they get to be a problem, not after.

    I made up the “Home Colonoscopy Kit” – that was a joke. If there were such a thing, it would obviously have to address some overwhelming challenges.

    I think that’s Roseanne Barr AFTER a trip to the beauty salon
