Well that's obscure and fantastic, and even a bit brilliant. Pretty sure -- in the rare cases where it's apt -- I will be stealing that from you. Bravo.

Re: We should all help these poor ladies 🙄

The fundraising is SNOWBALLING!

You *** naysayers haven't even seen the $5 donated in 2 days.
When someone else donates $5 that will be $10. That's DOUBLE!

If it doubles every 2 days that's $20 on Thursday (night). That almost VIRAL!

They have a viral snowballing cash cow from heaven.
Thats big money, big cows, big snowballs, big viruses.

Re: We should all help these poor ladies 🙄

They are obviously just desperate for attention. Seem to be a whole lot of people around like that these days. They don't even mind if the attention is a whole bunch of people saying "What a couple of obnoxious dopes!" They just want the attention.

Ignore them.

Now, who knows if even that quote is correct or if it was fed to the journalist by those two - but, sadly, I could see this being true. The thing is, it's clear that these two seem caught in a vicious circle of their own making - not "the media's". And that's really sad to me. It's very Crowhurstian.

These ladies just need to stop seeking the attention and go back to a simple, honest life. I hope they do that.
"Crowhurstian" was brave!

A bit unfair to Crowhurst No comparison .He was brilliantly mad but still had the guts to step off the stern.
