Man-o-gram – More Parity in Cancer Awareness Advertising

No lie.
And I’m sorry if some of these ads are explicit, but gosh, if we can have the kind of pinkgasm with Breast Cancer Awareness to the point where it is in grocery stores, charity races, clothing, kitchen kitsch, schools, ribbonsgalore, decorating entire buildings swathed in pinkstink, why not make other cancers more accessible and talk about them as well? When will it be ok to speak the word “prostate or colon” cancers without the usual *whisper?*

The Google. She scares me. I just found my favorite new site. The of advertising. I have yet to reach the end of the internets. Must sleep soon.


Some parity for the boys. Again, some very sad, some ridiculous, some surreal, some informational, but it doesn’t seem quite as humiliating as Jingle Jugs for Life. Then again, check out Carpe Testes: Be a Man – Self Exam. Looks like men perhaps are more visual and need videos?


Prostate Cancer Earrings?? They will make anything just to make a buck!

Song Lyrics

Prosty the Spokesgland
Is a prostate gland, we’re told
Buried deep inside largely out of sight
He’s ignored by young and old

Prosty the Spokesgland
How we hope that lump’s benign
But it’s hard to say
Cause the only way
To diagnose and treat is blind

There might just be some cancer
In that lump they found today
But we really can’t be sure right now
Cause you can’t trust the PSA

Prosty the Spokesgland
Spreads the word on what we need
No more pokes and prods
No more biopsies
How about some imaging?

Prosty the Spokesgland
It’s time that we all gave a damn
Cause we know he needs
New technologies
Like a hi-tech Man-ogram

Lumpety lump lump
Lumpety lump lump
Look at Prosty grow
Lumpety lump lump
Lumpety lump lump
No more bending over so
