This cartoon cutie, with a few changes (such as changing the wardrobe to keep the PC police at bay) could still be used in advertising. She would be a much better mascot for propane sales than Blue Rhino.

I know what you mean, but F the PC Police!

I think what she is wearing is really cute. I don't think she's be considered offensive at all. It's just that bullshit pidgin that would need to change to make it modern-appropriate. Even though, as in the last post, I'd really love to have that "heap clean" font on my computer.

I like how Cartland even worked their initials into the heap clean lettering.
