Funny Bus Ad Turns the Seats into Naked Butts to Raise Colon Cancer Awareness

We’re sorry if we might be a bit too farfetched assuming there are still people out there actually commuting by bus. Since we are living in one of those busy cities, believe it or not but we do sometimes get around using this type of transportation. Let us tell you this, there are enough reasons why you’d rather walk to work, especially in the summer time, enough to not want to see naked butts all over the place.

We’re not pointing at those weirdos that wouldn’t even say a word even though you are trying to communicate with them. And it’s not like you suddenly feel the urge to get friendly with strangers with an odd look and a bad odor. It's just that sometimes you need to ask people to get out of your way so you can get off the bus.

Nor are we subtly claiming that commuting by bus makes you think of rotten sardines. It's just that I’m simply too big of a petrolhead to leave my car parked at home and betray it with a bigger, more spacious vehicle.

Nevertheless, if anybody ends up in one, the least thing he or she could ask for is a little decency, right?

Well, that was the exact point Meredith’s Miracles - a charity established to raise awareness about colon cancer and rectal cancer - was making when they decided to cover the backsides of Chicago’s buses with bums that invite commuters to get their colons checked. No way can you miss these pictures while traveling around town, no matter how focused you’d be listening to Taylor Swift’s latest album (of course we mean The Prodigy).

And the idea of taking action now, to prevent rather than cure is more than vital considering the official numbers. Let us not forget that colon cancer is currently the second-most deadly cancer in the U.S.

Meanwhile, regular rectal exams have the power to drastically increase the chances that this cancer will be diagnosed and treated in time for a full recovery. Just so you know, last year only, 136,830 people were diagnosed with the disease in America.
