You've got to accentuate the positive



A lucky charm bracelet? A lucky charm bracelet that "enhances the power of positive thought" as reported in today's Age newspaper. La Chance is the maker of this powerful bracelet and please say this out loud with your most Aussie accent "lachanzze" - just for fun. The new celebrity must-have item valued at $600 is seen as a positive reminder of how good life is according to a Hi-5 singer, so it must be true. So if I rush out and purchase my new positive enhancement bracelet can I then assume I a) will become a celebrity too and not have to work very hard for a living and b) earn so much money I will lose any sense of reality that this amount of money for something that could be made out of macaroni for all we know is necessary? Somehow it would take more than a charm bracelet for me to be positive about forking out that much dosh unless of course I was the owner of the company that made the item and then that would be really very positive indeed. So for good luck, good fortune and lashings of positive thought, buy yourself nothing. You will be richer for it (in more ways than one). Personally, I like diamonds. There is plenty of positive thought about getting one of those.

  1. I don't think we're too far away from the day a so-called 'celebrity' starts wearing a freeze-dried, resin-encased dog turd and tries selling it as their own 'Back to Nature pendant', I really don't.....

  2. The funny thing about this story is that apparently Janet Jackson was offered one of the these bracelets (for free) but did not have a spare ten minutes to have explained the philosophy behind wearing it and so she was not given one. Seriously, how stupid is anyone to actually fork out 600 smackeroos for one of these when they are being given away for free. I guess about as stupid as paying $1000 for a jar of face cream, hoping it will improve your appearance -cough cough cough.

  3. If it also changes colour with your mood, I'm sold.

  4. I'm going with the dog turd idea. I reckon that's going to catch on and if it can change colour with your mood, it's a winner. Today is a pink poo day so it's smiles all 'round.
