People resort to pathetic tactics to attract members of the opposite sex. Look what was witnessed not long ago in Italy:
Can you believe it? All that care – the dog food, the pooper-scooper-upper, the chewed-up shoes – just to initiate a little public flirtation.
What is most absurd about all of this? That it can be accomplished far more effectively and easily with a simple laptop case. That’s right – you carry around your MacBook in this handmade Bolivian computer sleeve and it’s like you were all of a sudden featured on the cover of People Magazine. Fo real. Wherever I take my computer sleeve, endless attention follows. (“I’m sorry for staring, but that is just the coolest laptops case I’ve ever seen, where can I get one?”)
Here’s the thing, they can’t. Unless, of course, they travel to Bolivia. But (shhhhh!), you can. Not only that, but you’ll be supporting a great cause. For the next two weeks only, Eddie of the Voces Bolivianas project will be selling these laptop cases to raise money for scholarships to a bloggers’ conference they are organizing at the end of August. Voces Bolivianas is a citizen media outreach project that trains new bloggers that come from communities in Bolivia that typically don’t have any online representation. It is a project that is very close to my heart and, though I’ve never been to Bolivia myself, I feel like I have thanks to the blogs of Cristina, Jessica, Mario, Hugo, Dora, and all of the posts published on the Voces Bolivianas blog.
To purchase your Bolivian laptop case for just $25 including shipping (and to quadruple the attention and affection from the opposite sex), head over to the Voces Bolivianas website. You can pay with PayPal and 100% of proceeds goes towards Voces Bolivianas activities.
Update: The Saudis have it right. This flagrant abuse of animal domesticity must stop.
