The Wisconsin State Capitol is lit up in pink for Breast Cancer Awareness.

You may remember the picture I took of it a few days ago...

...used in a post called "Breast Awareness Gone Mad." Maybe you had some ideas about how to manipulate it. Hazy Dave emails this:

As a breast cancer survivor, I can attest that for many of us one dome is enough.

The only thing missing is the tassels. Otherwise, that's one terrific pair of rotundas, I can tell you.

Althouse is abreast of it all.

Some new pharmaceutical designed just for women.

It wouldn't be Althouse if we didn't get one tits post a day.

ohh, those be the public teats I've heard about. I always wondered how so many citizens could feed off them at the same time. Althouse teaches as she entertains. Thanks.

On the topic of bawdiness in State government: California's Governator sends a message to the legislature. Scroll down for the quick visual explanation.

OK, are these coneheads like the Cheeseheads headgear worn by Wisconsinites to show their wild and crazy community spirit?

Drove through Chicago this weekend and Big Willy is lit up pink as well. Sorry, no photo, but if someone can get one, just imagine the mashups.

Too much silicate in them. Those things are as hard as rocks.

Kirk Parker said...

I'm with J Lee--those things don't look very... umm.... natural, do they?

If you want to know if they're real, you must ask

Do they jiggle?

Ok, what are they going to light up for prostate cancer awareness day?

The White House is pink!
Is Obama remembering his diapers?
Just saw it on Hardball.

Everyone loves domes.

The Washington Monument or the Holland Tunnel depending on your point of view.

They're going to hand out frost-damaged rosebuds iced with KY.

The picture just needs a set of toes across the bottom.

Nice, but they look like a closeup of Madonna's pointy boobs.

I prefer the rounder, more natural like of Milwaukee's Mitchell Park Domes known locally as the Dolly Parton Monument. Plus, there's a spare.

Careful- you'll get Lilek's all excited n' stuff...

I think it's safe to say that we're all plenty aware by now, thanks.

We can stop making every god-damn thing in the world pink for a whole month.

Seriously.

"Awareness" has been "raised".

Mission accomplished.

Enough.

Can we stop wasting so much effort and (taxpayer) money on pointless displays of How Much We Care, now?

(Couldn't they have at least donated the cost of the new lighting and the labor to change it in and out to research instead?

I suppose wanting politicians to do something vaguely useful rather than posture about How Much They Care is unrealistic...)
