Wow! Four times the exact same idea (with the exception of a pencil being thrown in for safe measure). Oh, and I happen to treat my pens with respect.

Totally agree on that KKK. Still there's something smart about this campaign, doing it four times ruins it a bit.

If someone have a cheap pen, he will treat it like this.

Yes okay, I get the point. So ? What can I as a newspaper reader do about it ? Information value : 10. Involvement : 0.

There ya go. The nobility of the sentiment and the sanctity of journalism is the only thing that keeps saving this sh*t's bacon.
