Got Milk? HNT

Don't forget to check out this year's 5th Annual Blogger's Boobie-Thon! Many of your fellow HNTers are already participating, including the OsShirt, with more sure to follow. Of course, if you don't need to see the boobies, then go check out the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

I think we've all had a great idea for HNT, but ended up with something less than what we had anticipated. That's what happened to me. I wanted to do something with the whole Boobie-Thon thing, so it finally hit me--the "Got Milk?" campaign. We've seen the ads. Everyone--from Britney Spears, to Aerosmith, to Ben Roethlisberger, to The Simpsons, to Kermit the Frog--sported a cheesy white milk mustache. Breasts, milk, mustache--a great concept for HNT!

Well, the first problem was the breasts. None around here, but then again, the ads never showed breasts either, so maybe that wasn't a problem. Next problem was the milk. All I had in the fridge was chocolate milk. Well, I could make it work. Last problem, the mustache. I drank glass after glass, trying to get a good milk mustache. The unfortunate thing with already having a real one is that the milk runs into it, basically rendering itself invisible. And I have the pictures to prove it. Also proving the fact that, yes, the milk mustaches in the ads are digitally added...

Sometimes things don't go the way you'd like them to, but it's at those times that you suck it up and face the world. So here's my chocolate milk mustache. Non-digital. Is there an easy way to make this somehow circle back to Boobie-Thon? Probably not. So go check it out and support breast cancer research!

For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it.
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it."

"...the Other HNT" has some decidedly NSFW pictures, so beware! But a good crop, nonetheless!
Look for another post or two over at the OsShirt site over the weekend. I believe that Detroit is the next stop...
As usual, please turn off your word verification for the night!
