Why not tooth paste and ramen? [Mar. 7th, 2005|06:11 pm]
[mood |blahblah]
[music |Tombraider 2]

Some of the well-intentioned donations for victims of the
December tsunami are bewilderingly inappropriate (such as ski
jackets and Viagra), according to a February Wall Street Journal
dispatch from Sri Lanka. Relief workers are being distracted by
shipments of, for example, moisturizing gel, sweaters, women's
dress shoes, Arctic-weather tents, and thong underwear. Crucial
medicines were in short supply, but not Valium, anti-depressants,
or drugs with labels in languages that local doctors could not read.
As the Journal wrote, some doctors "appear [just] to have unloaded
their sample bins."

That'a all they need. A country that just got devastated by a tsunami and all the guys have hard ons. It may boost the population...but the current situation probably won't improve.

That's awful. But I'd like the thongs.

And the anti-depressents would work for me! :D
