A Less Significant Sacrifice

Every six months or so, we have a blood drive at our church, and since I am the type of person who is willing to give blood if it is exceptionally convenient, I donated at our blood drive yesterday afternoon.

If you’re lucky, you get a free t-shirt when you give blood, and yesterday, I was lucky (or so I thought). I didn’t really look at it until I got home. It said, “He gave His. I gave mine,” and then had a Jesus fish underneath it.

I dunno, there’s something about comparing my convenient gift of a superfluous pint of blood to Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross for all mankind that just irks me.

Design a new t-shirt.

That shirt is pretty lame.

I donate at work. We get a free t-shirt and a free movie pass and four hours of leave.

Pretty plush.

Wow, that is plush. Are the movie passes good for any movie, or only for boring stuff like "Pride and Prejudice?"

That is a little...arrogant.

kenny- you're talking about the shirt, not that luke thought pride and prejudice is a boring movie. That threw me at first, I was on my way to defend him (not that he needs it) when I realized that you were talking about the shirt.

I whole heartily agree with you. makes me cringe a little. bad shirt idea.

Here's the thing though: in order for that shirt to exist someone had to say, "hey this is a great idea" and THEN someone else had to agree with that! not cool.

Yes I meant the shirt. I am not really into Pride and Prejudice.

Most people with a Y chromosome aren't really into Pride and Prejudice.

Justin: It is shocking that people could think that was a good idea, but really not that uncommon. I mean, just think about all the retarded commercials that people pay lots of money for.

May I should open an advertising agency where all I do is approve/veto other people's ideas.
