feel free to copy and use tony’s art to spread the meme.
[Update -- 12 August -- The little toothpaste buycott just keeps chugging along. Yesterday it got a boost from USA Today's Angela Gunn in her Tech_Space Blog.]
[Update -- 16 October -- As George Nemeth notes, the little meme that could got a boost this week from the folks at Wal Mart The High Cost Of Low Price who put it on the front page of their website in the Get Active category. It had been a while since anyone had picked up the meme and I was beginning to think it had run its course. But the little guy keeps chugging along.]
I cast my my modest proposal for a Wal Mart Toothpaste Buycott into the blogosphere and it is slowly making it’s way across the Internet. So far 23 bloggers have picked it up and begun to spread the word. One of the reasons I did this was to show two of my friends that one person can make a difference. All you got to do is fling one starfish.
My modest proposal supporters include:
Angela Gunn’s Tech_Space

[Update -- 2103, 14 September -- An interesting develoment in a comment on Target. My modest proposal is starting to take on generic proportions.]
