Man Boobz Pledge Drive, Part 2: Electric Boogaloo!

Operators are standing by. (Pic from The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee website. Click on the pic to see the full photoshoot.)

Welcome to the 2nd twice-annual Man Boobz Pledge Drive!

I’ll keep this brief: If you enjoy this blog, and can afford it, please click on the “donate” button below and sending a few bucks my way. Or, if you’d prefer, a massive quantity of bucks. You don’t need a PayPal account to donate; you can use a credit card, and I think there are other options as well.

Things are still a bit lean here at Man Boobz manor, so any donations you can spare will be enormously appreciated by me and the kitties, and (indirectly) by my landlord.

If you can’t afford it, I completely understand; so many of you already contribute enormously to Man Boobz with your awesomely hilarious and smart comments, and strange drawings, and links to videos of kittens, and the like. At the time of the last pledge drive, back in March, you all had left a little more than 125,000 comments here; the total has just now gone over 200,000. Which is amazing to me.

So, congratulations, and thanks.

If you really want to get into the proper Pledge Drive mindset, watch the clip below from a KCTS9 Seattle PBS Pledge Drive sometime in the 80s (presumably) in which a slightly addled Pledge Wrangler gets some of her facts about the station a little confused. Including what channel she’s on.

If you want to get into a slightly different state of mind, watch this video instead, from eccentric (and extremely indie) musician R. Stevie Moore. I think this is what ELO would have sounded like if all their songs had been recorded in a basement in New Jersey.

EDITED TO ADD: I found the kitty pic atop this post on the web, uncredited. But a reader points out it’s actually from a photoshoot from The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, a website set up by foster cat parents which uses its adorable pictures of kittens to find homes for said kittens as well as to raise money for the Tacoma/Pierce County Humane Society, from whence the kittens come. They’ve actually done a whole bunch of fundraising photoshoots over the years with new batches of kittens and an ever-more elaborate set. Check them out and maybe send them some $ too.

Even more grrr, I may have spent four times as much I was expecting to, as I notice 4 x $1 holding charges on my account from PayPal. And I haven’t received any emails from PayPal indicating I have charged my debit card. /sigh

Lesson for the day: if you’re not in the US then PayPal customer service can’t help you and keeps giving out random alternative customer support phone numbers, that are also not based in your own country (because the number length is wrong).

Clairedammit/heidihi, what an awesome thing to do! Makes me think that more people who can’t donate should pipe up in comments, maybe there are more Clairedammits out there…
