Alternatives
Many people criticize the Pretzel Bomb for being "wasteful" because we could be using the food to feed the needy.  I suppose they're right.  We could also refrain from giving Christmas gifts to people and instead give them to children whose names are hanging from our local church's "giving tree."  I see the Pretzel Bomb as a gift.  A sarcastic gift, but a gift nonetheless.  Once the gift is given, it is no longer up to us to decide what to do with it.  Perhaps our president will take his excessive amount of pretzels and give them to starving children over in Ethiopia.  If he ends up simply throwing them out, we can scorn him for it.  If he actually does something with them, though (instead of choke on one), I may actually gain a shred of respect toward the man.

Anyway, I got off on a tangent.  The title of this post is "Alternatives" and it is for a reason.  I've seen the suggestion of sending Bush some pretzel coupons or advertisements, which isn't a bad idea.  Also, (I came up with this one in the shower; don't ask) we could send a single pretzel to him.  This could fit in an envelope and we could eat the rest of the pretzels that came with it.  That certainly wouldn't be wasteful.

In any case, these are only alternatives, and are not meant to replace everyone's small bag of pretzels (hell, send him a large bag; I was just thinking of saving money).  Just some ideas for people to take into consideration, if you don't want to pay for pretzels and postage.  Another suggestion is to include a small note.  It may or may not be read (after so many pretzels come in, they more-than-likely won't be read), but you should take the chance anyway.  I know I'll be including a small letter with my pretzels.  I'll also be mailing in more than one bag, which is definitely an idea for those of you with an extra dollar or two lying around.

By the way... what IS this "Pretzel Bomb?"
PRETZEL BOMB 2005


On January 14th, 2005, we Americans who are furious with the current President will each send one grab-bag-sized bag of pretzels to the White House (just to show we care) at the following address:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
