Is That a Bitch Sign in Your Pocket or Are You Just a Giant A-Hole?

Attention Bitch readers!

It was made known to us last night (by a big hole in the wall) that our Bitch door sign has been stolen! Here is a photo of the purloined sign in its former glory (in case you need to make an I.D.):

Red alert, readers! Lock up your signs because there is a thief on the loose! If you see this sign floating around NE Alberta Street (or in some jerkwad’s apartment somewhere) please bring it back to us! Our sign was a donation from Ferrousity and we really feel it tied the whole office together.

And to the major A-hole(s) who decided it was cool to take this sign in the first place: Congratulations! We hope your friends are impressed by your feats of thievery. You should feel especially proud of yourself since we are a nonprofit organization, which means that money for a new sign will have to come out of funds that would have gone toward hosting community events, publishing our print magazine, and obtaining books for our free lending library. So, you know, way to go on the whole stealing thing.

And another thing, thief: If, by chance, you stop feeling quite so good about your crimes, or your d-bag friends stop being impressed by your ability to steal a sign that says the word “bitch” on it (hilarious!), please return our sign to us. We won’t be mad; we just want our darling sign back in its rightful place above our door. If, however, you do not feel any remorse for stealing the sign of a struggling, independent, nonprofit organization, then hopefully said sign is not too big to shove up your ass.

Bitch is struggling?

just because ...

<i>Bitch</i> just met their new subscriber "<i>Bitch</i> 500" goal doesn't mean they suddenly got rich. Costs for things increase on a more-than-daily basis. I know this working part-time for a community non-profit myself. The stolen sign is an unfortunate circumstance <i>Bitch</i> didn't deserve. I think I will see if I can scrape and send a few bucks to help pay for a new sign, or whatever function the need is greatest.


I wasn't trying to imply that Bitch "suddenly got rich," I was just wondering if Bitch really is struggling economically. I may be ignorant - perhaps everyone knows about this? I just recently started reading Bitch (as in, last month), so I'm not exactly up-to-date on their fiscal situation.

My previous comment was meant as an honest, straightforward question, not as a snarky, cynical, or sarcastic remark. I know everyone is having trouble in this economy, but I just want to know if Bitch is in danger of shutting down or something. Bottom line: Should I be worried??

Since Bitch is a non-profit

Since Bitch is a non-profit magazine, they really depend on donations from their readers. I would not be extremely worried, but if you have any money to donate, then that would really help. Also, if you are reading and not subscribed, I would highly recommend getting a subscription, since they receive the money without it going through middle men, like bookstores.
