With all of the online controversy of this election, the Vote with Candy promotion at Hallmark is not funny, at least, not quite as funny as I think they thought it would be.
I saw the sign in the window several weeks ago, but as the stress and the social media blocking has increased – exponentially – as we get closer to the election, it is less ironic and more painful to see.
Isn’t Halloween coming up? Maybe Christmas…?
To think that a serious topic, one such as the presidential election, especially this year, could be decided with a candy purchase is ridiculous. I am thinking that this is not funny but it is attention getting…which, in the grand scheme of things, is what they wanted to do.
