These things have gotten out of control. Some cyclist or other wore one once, then everyone thought it was a good idea. While purportedly worn to show support for good causes… people now wear these things to tell the world X, Y or Z about themselves: that they’re a geek, or that they support a particular football team, or that the like the colour green. Ridiculous stuff.
A fashion item it’s not. If you’ve got one of these around your wrist, do us all a favour, don’t cut off the bracelet – cut your wrist!
