The Onion\'s Cheat to Win Bracelets

To The Onion: I wish to protest a particular item for sale in your on-line store: There are over 10 million Americans living with cancer today. 1,444,920 are expected to be diagnosed in 2007. Each of these people will require no small amount of compassion and encouragement to conquer the disease. The bracelets you are attempting to parody are not a symbol of one person\'s athletic accomplishments, but the embodiment of a movement for all cancer survivors. Humor is a strong component of successful treatment and healing. However, instead of providing humorous commentary on the state of professional sports, you have demeaned a charitable cause.


This petition was created by a cancer survivor who found the Onion\'s attempt at satirizing the iconic yellow bracelets in poor taste.
