injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."

Because a girl is never too young for her first body image disorder…

Abercrombie & Fitch now brings us padded bikinis for 8-year-olds.   No more despair over tiny tatas for your third grader.   Now she can rock the new A & F “Ashley” Push-Up Triangle – a triangular-shaped bikini top with thick padding for breast enhancement.  

Why wait till puberty for your little princess become a sex object?   Get your daughter the new “Ashley” big-boob bikini and she can start attracting men of inappropriate-age right now.

Abercrombie & Fitch are known for pushing the sexual limits in fashion.  No big deal or this time have they gone too far?


Some pistol power with your "Apprentice"?

A Radio Shack in Montana is offering customers a pistol or shotgun with every purchase of a Dish Network TV package and the store owner says it’s tripled his business since first offered last October.  

When you think about it, it really does make a lot of sense.  There have been countless times when something on TV has pissed me off and I’ve thought, “Damn!  If I only had a gun, I’d go out and shoot something.”  

For those less trigger-happy folks, they can choose a $50 Pizza Hut gift card instead.  


Not exactly Old Spice, but...

Hart Main is a 13-year-old Ohio boy with a nose for business.   Turned off by the “girly-scented” candles his sister was selling for a school fundraiser, Hart decided it was time guys had some scented candles they could enjoy, too.

The enterprising youth took $100 from his savings and Man Cans was launched with scents that include bacon, pizza, sawdust and the smell of a fresh leather baseball mitt. 

In keeping with an eco-friendly business model, all of his candles are contained in recycled soup cans from soup he donates to a local soup kitchen

Hart works on his candle business when he’s not in school and says his mom helps him pour the wax because she doesn’t trust him to do it alone.  Since November of last year, Hart has sold 675 candles for $5 each and made enough money to buy himself a new bike and put money away for college where he plans to study business.

The next scent he’s working on is aptly named “Money To Burn.” 


GE brings good things to their own life…

And they best use their imagination when it comes to dodging taxes.

In 2009, General Electric made $10.3 billion in 2009, but received a $1.1 billion tax rebate.  In 2010, despite profits of $14.2 billion — $5.1 billion from its operations in the United States — General Electric did not have to pay any U.S. taxes.  

In addition, GE is currently sitting on $77 billion in reserves.  That’s a lot of dough that’s not in circulation to create jobs and pay some of the country’s bills.   And they’re not alone. 

In 1970, corporations paid 29% of all income tax taken in by the U.S. government.  In 2009, they paid only 6%.  Guess who made up the rest? 

Almost all the members of the Senate and half of the House are millionaires.  Why we elect millionaires to represent us, then wonder why they don’t pass laws to help the middle-class can only be explained as collective insanity.

And now a little bit about “The American Dream” from the genius of the late George Carlin.  Recorded in 2005, it’s even more timely today…

It's your turn.  You know what to do...
