Anyone else think that fad is ridiculously stupid? FYI they're the rubber bands/bracelets that are in the shape of animals and stuff when you take them off. Every kid I see has at least 2 on his/her wrist and half the people at my highschool have them too. Starting to get kinda dumb seeing everyone with toddler toys.

Entirely idiotic...though the creator is likely a multi-millionaire. Imagine how cheap those things are to make? I'm guessing the production cost is less than 1 cent per band.

Why would you want them, nobody can tell what the \"Watch your language\" they're shaped like when they're on your wrist.
Go back to Livestrong bracelets, at least those have meaning.

srsly. The silly band bracelets are retarded. I really don't see any value in them.

Girls like them...for some reason

HAHAHA according to ChaCha, the exact production cost is not publicly available, but they estimate that it is nearly 1 dozen bands for every 1 cent worth of material.
Further, the plastic packaging that Silly Bandz come in actually costs more to produce than the bands themselves.

epicly stupid things. but I do have a funny story regarding them.

my cousin (I have no idea how he got roped into the fad) brought some to my house one time and we couldn't figure out what one of them was supposed to be. we puzzled over it for probly twenty minutes before finally deciding it must be a squirell. then my little brother came in about ten minutes later, looked at the silly band in question lying on the dresser, picked it up, turned it sideways and said matter of factly "oh look, a bull". we felt like complete idiots.

I've got a pony and a rocketship. But because they glow in the dark, and my friend told me that my new dream is to build a rocketship and take a pony to the moon, and then gave them to me. Smile

Oh ok I know how to fix your problem. Go into the kitchen and find a really sharp knife.
Now proceed to STAB YOURSELF IN THE FACE.

Ehem.


*Cough*...I mean..."breasts".

Joking aside, thanks for speaking up when you witness someone breaking a forum rule...it's great to see people still have the decency to say "OY! STFU" without actually saying "OY! STFU".
In a perfect world, one wouldn't need to use language to convey a message.
