"Caught with our Pints Down..."

Today, I received this postcard in the mail:


To answer your first question, yes, that is a red blood cell with pants around its ankles (I'm no bio major, but I'm not sure RBCs have ankles...) and to answer your second question, yes, they are finally bribing people to give blood for free gas. THAT'S HOW DESPERATE THE SITUATION IS, PRESIDENT BUSH. People will now BLEED THEMSELVES DRY for a $25 gift card to Exxon Mobil.

Of course, this $25 will probably only get you to the next gas station. It may just be faster to hook an IV up to my arm and feed it directly into my gas tank... cuts out the middle man.

Well it’s not only gas, but it’s movies, too… theaters have a blood bus outside and if you give blood you’ll get a free movie ticket! AND they give you a free t-shirt (which is actually pretty awesome). If I weren’t so afraid to give blood I’d do it. I bet the movie is even better with that free cookie and cup of juice.
