World's largest colonoscopy party pushes deep into Minneapolis
Ladies and gentlemen, the social event of the season has just been announced, and tickets are still available.
agingbutdangerous.com These women want you at their "pre-poop party".
For $198, you can join a horde of "aging but dangerous" over-50 women for what is being billed as the world's largest colonoscopy party.
By the sound of things, this is not only going to be the world's largest colonoscopy party -- it's also going to be the swankiest, most illinest, most off-the-chain colonoscopy party.
Guests are going to enter the "pre-poop party" at the Depot Renaissance Hotel through a giant "Disneyeseque" 20-foot colon, then rage on through the night with a slumber party at the hotel before boarding the limos that will whisk them in style to their procedures. Afterward they'll wind down at the "post-poop party," which will include an awards ceremony.
The event runs from the evening of March 31 on through to April Fools Day, but the organizers insist it's no prank -- just a legit fundraiser for the Amercian Cancer Society.
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death-by-cancer in the United States, after lung cancer, but so far the fight against it hasn't gotten the kind of high-profile corporate support, of say, breast cancer.
It obviously presents a different kind of PR challenge -- if schoolmarms couldn't deal with "I heart boobies" bracelets, it's a safe bet that eighth-graders sporting "I heart buttholes" paraphernalia would make their heads explode.
So lots of credit to the Aging But Dangerous ladies for trying a novel way to tackle an under-discussed problem. We hope your poop parties are fun, and we look forward to red-carpet photos from the giant walk-in party-colon.
