Sha bo da ba

I bought a pen off a 'charity' man today. He came up to me at the bus stop and simply said 'I work for a charity, would you like to buy a pen?'. I bought a pen out of sympathy, and as he walked away it dawned on me that he most likely didn't work for a charity and instead was a man who liked to sell 'charity' pens to vulnerable school girls to fund his cigarettes.

I went on the website on the pen this afternoon, waiting for a page to come up saying 'this page does not exist'. However, a website came up and it looks as though the proceeds from my pen went to a good cause! If some a man comes up to you at Central saying 'Hello I work for a charity would you like to buy a pen' buy it! It's a charity called Lend A Shoulder. MORAL OF THE STORY: Buy pens of strangers!

P.P.S. I think we can all agree that this is the best line in Tropic Thunder. Aaahhh so good.
