God, I love my state.
A friend of mine recently stumbled upon Connecticut's latest aim to get kids recycling. Now, I think we can all agree that recycling is a good thing, and that impressionable kids should be encouraged to do it. What better way to convince them than to create a mascot for kids whose sole purpose is to promote environmentally friendly habits? What could go wrong?
A lot, apparently. Meet Phillup D. Bag:
Gaze into the soulless, murdering eyes of recycling
Phillup D. Bag. Let that sink in for a second. Yes, it's a play on words. Yes, they're trying to get kids to fill up some kind of bag for recycling.
But "D. Bag"? As in, an abbreviated form of "douchebag"? Who in the holy hell let this one slip by? We're supposed to be the most educated state in the country, and this was the best we could do? Was "Recycling Mo Fo" taken by another state? How about "BJ the Dumpster"?
At any rate, way to go guys! At very least you're being upfront and honest with my tax money here... it's going to fund some D. Bag. You bunch of Phillups.
