Ryan Reynolds Posts New Deadpool PSAs to Promote Cancer Awareness

This is definitely a new twist on how to market your comic book superhero film.

Reynolds posted a pair of PSAs to his Twitter account over the last couple of days, both of which outline the necessity of self-exams to check for any suspicious or out-of-place lumps or bumps. In typical Deadpool fashion, they combine that R-rated humor with the reminder that self-exams are important--and really aren't that tricky to perform at the end of the day.

Supreme Court May Decide Boobies Case

Today in Boobs

There's a lot here in this story. There's a couple of fifteen year old girls who were barred from handing out breast cancer awareness bracelets by their school district. There's the much debated trend in breast cancer awareness campaigns to skew to a focus on the sexual appeal of breasts rather than the saving of lives as the motivating factor. There's the parents who thought that this was a violation of their daughters' First Amendment rights that was worth taking it all the way to a federal appeals court. But mostly, there's the undeniably delightful idea that a Supreme Court justice of America might say the word "boobies" on the record during a session.

This Bra Tweets Whenever It’s Unhooked

she blinded me with science

What a world we live in. Every time this bra by OgilvyOne Athens is unhooked it tweets a reminder to @TweetingBra's followers to perform monthly breast self-exams. Awww. I was prepared to be all curmudgeonly about the idea of a tweeting article of clothing, but then it's actually for a good cause. I won't be so kind when someone invents a pair of pants that tweets a bad pick-up line every time they're unzipped. Actually... I might. That sounds ridiculous and amusing.

Lots of different companies and organizations have projects to raise money for various charities but a recent move by Etsy has raised some eyebrows.
