Always ahead of the curve BCF secured an exclusive though anonymous interview with a representative of the Flower & Candle Memorial marketing board who spilled the dirty little secret that has the industry cowering in fear… Here’s the chilling lowdown straight from our industry insider…
“…We’ve sponsored study after study and every single one without exception has come to the same conclusion. Flowers and candles, even candles arranged into hearts or peace symbols have zero deterrent effect against Muslim terrorists. In fact they may even encourage random jihad attacks. It’s as if certain of our cultural practices, OK, actually all of them, don’t translate well and offend the Muslim world.
Needless to say none of these studies will ever see the light of day. That would be bad for business.
What worries our industry more are the confectioners, they’ve come out with a line of “Massacre of the Infidels Celebration Candy” which people can hand out to show solidarity with their Muslim friends on the occasion of each new mass killing. You just know that’s gonna take off. Give em credit, they were smart and paid attention to cultural norms, it’s smart marketing.”
