Leslie Carol Botha: Ok – Girls on their Periods – “possibly the most requested film of all time.” One would think so with over 800,000 views. This goes under Hormone Humor! Love the honesty and candor that younger women have in talking about their periods. This is the conversation that needs to happen to start Continue Reading …
Kraft Foods, the firm’s parent company, said the provocative picture of a child clenching a chocolate cookie while suckling on a woman’s breast was only supposed to be used once.
The nipple-exposing promo was made by its Cheil Worldwide agency, it added, which was merely going to use it for an advertising forum.
But I’ll admit, a part of me was a little worried. After all, I have been camping, and had our campsite raided by bears, because someone left their toothpaste out of the bear box. Apparently bears in Yosemite National Park love them some minty freshness. And if toothpaste is on the menu, why not tampons? I mean, bears will eat most anything, right?
