Ringtones and Jamster

July 14, 2006 at 11:34 am (Random Awesomenessity)

at the risk of sounding like an old cantankerous curmudgeon, I feel it is my civic duty to express my pain with these new subscription ringtones.  Companies like Jamster and the such are clearly taking advantage of young-and-stupid teenagers, who, undoubtedly, screamed at mommy and daddy until they became cell-phone weilding followers.

(side question:  when did the concept of copying business people who pretended to be important with Cell phones and blackberries get wrangled in by teenie-boppers to become the new “ooh, i can put fake-ass gemstones on it and make it cool” fad?)

The commercials for these ringtones, text conversations, text psychic readings, text sex chats, all come with a giant legal disclaimer, but of course, the font is so ridiculously small, that no one with even 20/10 vision can read without digitally enhancing the image, which is on screen for, oh, one-tenth of a second.  Basically, if you text “BUTTSEX” to 4544, you will be text-messaged multiple times by some ugly old dude from Tunisia, pretending to be some hot 22-year old blonde from “right around the neighborhood” all for the low-low price of $1.99 a text message sent, and will receive monthly text messages with continued subscription.  That is correct, texting “Buttsex” to a random number constitutes as a contract.

 New business idea?  possibly.  Anyone interested in posing as a 23-year old broad with a hankerring for buttsex?
