This will not end well…


#3

The guy whose idea this was wants rid of it already.


#4

Celebrating hate mail.

This is not a Wonderful Thing.


#5

I wonder if I could treat Mr. D Cameron of 10 Downing Street, London to a dose of sparkles?


#6

lol glitter is not hate mail.


#7

Seems like a waste of good glitter.


#8

Amazing, because I came to say what a lousy job. Great idea at first, but a lousy day-to-day. Did you ever stuff envelopes for a living?


#9

This belatedly explains one of my birthday presents, a tennis-ball-sized papercraft skull stuffed with glitter and sequins.


#10

Deliberately causing a mess in somone’s home by hiring a company to “send them so much glitter in an envelope that they’ll be finding that shit everywhere for weeks” – that is hateful.

Soft-core hate mail, but hate mail nonetheless. Only assholes do that shit.

Washington under lockdown, Hazardous Materials Unit investigating after envelope containing powder mailed to White House.


#12

Hateful? Seriously? The hyperbole is palpable. Christ, get a hold of yourself.

It’s glitter.


#13

Sending shit seems to be fairly mainstream revenge.

Sending unicorn shit is novel.


#14

The unspoken message of “We know where you live and could have sent you a bomb” is very much so, though.


#15

That applies to any mail.


#16

Uh, what? That’s ridiculous. What a fucking major leap. I know a lot of addresses to a lot of people, some of whom I like, some of whom I dislike … and I have no desire to send anyone a bomb.

Unless it’s a glitter bomb. And that goes double for people I like, because this shit is hilarious and I have friends who can take a joke.

So if I send a letter to someone, does that mean I am telling them I can also send a bomb? WTF? Dude. No. Stop.


#17

I have a sister who buys glitter by the pound. I expect anything she sends me to contain a lot of the stuff. I always smile when I find a fleck of it randomly.


#18

This is a pretty idiotic idea, but yeah, agree with marilove that this would not count as “hate mail”, unless it’s followed by more harassment.


#19

“more” harassment makes it seem as if sending glitter is considered harassment to begin with. No. Just no.


#20

I meant followed by actual harassment. I don’t communicate perfectly in English, so I’m sorry for the confusion.
