In late August and early September 2011, along came another chain status of the same ilk as the others, again, aimed at women, and claiming they can do it for breast cancer awareness.
It's the pregnant status chain letter.
The idea is to get women posting crazy statuses that are supposed to make it look as if they are pregnant and telling all about it, how far along they are and what they are craving.
Again, the punchline is "It's for breast cancer awareness!" What, the stupid bra color and how you like your handbags chains weren't already too much, somebody came out with this winner...
The numberings and cravings are as follows:
😏Meme: January-1week Febuary-2weeks March-3weeks
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: and so on right through to December. Don't ask me to explain this crazy numbering system, it's anybody's guess what went on in this hoaxer's head.
😏Meme: Days of the month:
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Um you already put skittles in day 1, why are you doing it again?
😏Meme: 23-Gummy Bears
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Oh this is stupid. Aside from the shape, what's the difference between gummy bears and gummy worms? *Snip*
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah, you could've simplified this whole thing and put "Chocolate for every darn day!" and be done with it...
So out of all these, only two were a main meal item, what bull.
This pregnant cravings thing is ridiculous anyway, it is way overkilled in bad TV plots and comedies. Pregnant women have aversions too, aversions to main course as well as dessert and snack items.
Tanja Cilia's excellent article also points out that, like the bra color mutation, the pregnant status chain is heartless toward women who have suffered and been made unable to bear and breastfeed babies they wanted so much and will never get the chance to have.
Over and out!
