Let's talk about these Silly Bandz. They are a sensation that is sweeping the nation. Filling the arms of children everywhere.
But wait! It is not just children who are choosing to dawn these rubber bracelets(?), the older crowd is eating them up as well.
No matter where I turn, the playground, Starbucks, nightclubs, the rubber discombobulated shapes in florescent colors are gleaming at me from the wrists of unknowing victims of a trend.
A trend, may I add, that is not cheap. Each pack averages at $4.99. For what? So you can take the rubber pieces off your hand and BOOM! A puppy shape is in your hand?
Most people do not even take them off, so what is the point really?
Why is it that arms everywhere are being overpopulated by these Silly Bandz.
I am jealous. I wish I was smart enough to come up with such an idea and rip people off of all ages.( I guess I will get the next one)
Here is what I know; I am not jumping on the Silly Bandz bandwagon until they come in phallic symbols.
Ciao for now,
p.s. Confession: I am wearing three silly bandz right now, but only because they are Dora the Explorer, her monkey friend Boots, and Patrick from Spongebob. They are stars, so I made an exception.
