21st Century AIDS Relief

Posted in Humor on November 20th, 2008

What would happen if people took a pragmatic approach to AIDS relief in Africa? What if they put aside their preconceptions and applied tactics that took into account what we know of young men’s minds?

I do not mean for this post to be offensive, nor do I want anyone to belittle either the impact of HIV / AIDS on the world in general and Africa in specific. For those who believe this comic is in vastly poor taste and think that AIDS is no laughing matter, I refer you to these words:

Everything human is pathetic. The secret source of Humor itself is not joy but sorrow. There is no humor in heaven.

— Mark Twain
Following the Equator

We absolutely must laugh at what causes us fear or sorrow; the only alternatives are rage or despair. Besides – knowing men, a Playstation or Xbox would be an effective means of reducing the spread of infections through sex.
