NEW PRODUCT OFFERINGS IN THE LAND OF ANYTHING GOES

More wonderful news out of goofy Canada ...

Greg at "No Oil For Pacifists" points to a short-lived service offering from Bell Mobility in this post -- namely, Pimp Tones. These are ringtones for one's cell phone that showcase "street talk" about prostitution, employing mocking sobriquets such as "bitches, shanks, and hoes." You know, the jargon of today's pop culture and back-alley Fagins.

Nice touch from a major telecommunication's company.

Wonder how its CEO and Senior Vice President of Marketing spin this tawdry product offering? Hey, blame the customer -- i.e., "we were just trying to meet market demand for such a product." Wonder if they have a ringtone yet of the vows being said at a gay marriage?
