Help! Help! No it’s not the problems figuring out my online backup syncs. It’s my printers— my computer printers are driving me into bankruptcy!!
That’s all I have to say for the rest of the world to get their blood boiling! And according to Gizmodo, printer ink is even more costly than human blood!! Look at this stunning graph.
That, dear people, is insane. WHY oh WHY do printer manufacturers charge so much for their stupid ink! Not even the *slightly* less expensive refills are worth it! Plus, if you happen to accidentally spill it onto your skin, this is what happens:
GRRRRREAT. I have to go out to the store with this all over my hand. It JUST HAD to be magenta ink that got on my hand. It looks like blood! It won’t wash off, no matter how hard I try. And I can’t wear gloves while pinching tomatoes for ripeness, and fumbling with my nickels and dimes at the checkout, now can I?
I say we should revolt against this printer ink tyranny. We should refuse to buy anymore ink: not those $40 name-brand cartridges, nor those lousy drip ink refills! We should just throw away the PRINTER, and buy a new one. Did you know that you can buy a brand new printer with new cartridge included for LESS money than an ink cartridge refill?! Insane!! And every time the ink runs out of that new printer, THROW THAT AWAY and buy a new one again! Before long, the landfills will be filled with mountains and mountains of new printers! It will cause an outrage, and the backlash will be against the printer ink manufacturers (backlashes are always against the businesses in this country). So then the manufacturers will be FORCED to lower their prices to reduce this glut of printer-laden landfills! You know, SAVE THE EARTH and all that. Those SAVE THE EARTH people are pretty gullible, I’m sure we can convince them that expensive ink causes global warming, polar cap ice melts, and alien crop circles in cornfields.
So who’s with me????
