PAF Launches New Web Site and Brings Its Anti-Fun Message to the Internet

After several years of not really knowing what the Internet was all about, and another few years of learning how to actually create a web site, People Against Fun (http://www.peopleagainstfun.org) has launched a comprehensive online experience to share and spread its message.

PAF Launches New Web Site and Brings Its Anti-Fun Message to the Internet
 
“If enough people use Panasonic products such as a DVD Recorder, Plasma TV, Lumix Digital Camera, Nitrix Audio System or SD Multi AV Device, they will be compelled to tell their friends about these products, and eventually too many Americans will be having fun.This is unacceptable.”
 
Bob Pafferson, CEO
 PeopleAgainstFun.org
Search URLwire archives since 1994 
Among the first national organizations solely dedicated to the eradication of fun, People Against Fun is a group of like-minded people who refuse to have fun – and wish to control the spread of fun around the United States. PAF works to educate society and expose those who are unduly influenced by laughter, recreation, amusement, and enjoyment. Under the leadership of its CEO, Bob Paffersen, People Against Fun has grown into a watchdog group, advocating an unpleasant and banal existence for all.

History proves that fun is a relatively recent development. From the beginning of time until the twentieth century, mankind toiled in hardship and misery to eke out a living. In fact, prehistoric men had no concept of fun (as we have learned from the lack of depictions of toys and electronic devices in their cave paintings). Yet this lack of fun made early man a noble creature, allowing him to rise above the so-called "happy kingdom" of nature: those animals who, ignorantly, sought to attain contentment from the satisfaction of their basic instincts. 

PeopleAgainstFun.org not only details the organization’s background, but also exposes members of society having fun. In addition, the site provides online access to PAF’s newest commercials and their world-renowned personal guide, PAF and You, available in .pdf format.

Most importantly, PAF identifies organizations, products, and services that elicit fun and offers unique ways to steer clear of these joy-inducers. Specifically, PAF has exposed Panasonic as a fun-inducing company, targets their key products, and offers suitable alternatives.  More than any other company, Panasonic produces electronics that supply the body and mind with what we consider to be highly hazardous levels of fun. 

“If enough people use Panasonic products such as a DVD Recorder, Plasma TV, Lumix Digital Camera, Nitrix Audio System or SD Multi AV Device, they will be compelled to tell their friends about these products, and eventually too many Americans will be having fun,” Paffersen said. “This is unacceptable.”

PAF is the brainchild of guerrilla-specialist Renegade Marketing Group (http://www.renegademarketing.com) on behalf of long-time client Panasonic. To learn more about PAF, contact Bob Paffersen at (646) 486-7722  or  bobpaffersen(-at-)peopleagainstfun.org
