Glittering Irony

By now we all probably know about the site that offered to ship your enemies glitter. We all know about it because we all thought it was so funny that we shared it with everyone we knew. This led to many, many orders. I find this result particularly amusing.

After all, the site specifically states: ” We fucking hate glitter. People call it the herpes of the craft world. What we hate more though are the soulless people who get their jollies off by sending glitter in envelopes.” The idea for the site grew from this, they’d had all they could stand and would now send glitter to your enemies for a small fee. So what happens when they get an amazing number of orders? Well, the article reports that the founder stated in an email that “I’m now going to be packing and shipping glitter to thousands of people constantly for the next few weeks.”

Yup, the guy who can’t stand glitter now has to spend all his time handling glitter. That’s kind of messed up…and funny.

I kind of hope he finds a buyer for the company. I’d really like to see the guy be able to get away from glitter. By this point though, he may have been around so much glitter that he’ll still be picking it off himself when he’s 90.
