Bloomberg doesn’t want you to have a vibrator

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

No joy in bloombergville! Nanny Bloomberg shut down the free Trojan’s Vibrator giveaway.

Mental Recession has video and plenty of puns,

Hundreds of people lined up for their chance to receive a vibrator, but the gathering quickly grew flaccid as city officials came in and told promoters to shut down due to the big crowds.

The hot dog carts had a sign that read, “relish the moment.”

Trojans was giving them away at BlogHer12, and were a huge success shaking up the place. The two guys manning the booth were young (very young – do their moms know they do this?) and very cute.

The rumor was that an enterprising BlogHer attendee stole a case – probably to sell on eBay.

It was the most popular booth, outdoing the free make-up, shoulder massages, manicures, and Jimmy Dean’s Mr Sun.

Trojans gave away 4,000 at BlogHer. They’ll be back in Manhattan today, from “mid-town to the meat packing district.”

Let the good times roll!


Reporting from @BlogHer12: Romney’s missed opportunity

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

4,000 women bloggers are meeting in NY City from today until Saturday at BlogHer12, and Pres. Barack Obama adressed the standing-room-only crowd in the Hilton’s largest ballroom at 4:40PM today via live feed, as he had dome in 2004.

Where is Romney?

I talked to the Romney campaign and they said that Romney couldn’t make it because he’s in Colorado today.

Imagine this: 4,000 bloggers, all of voting age, most of them activists, and the Romney campaign does not get him to spend five minutes (which was the length of Obama’s speech) with them?

Maddening.

More maddening yet: the rumor is that “Romney couldn’t be bothered to answer”.

Big PR fail, on this one.
