Pink!   

Support Breast Cancer Awareness!  Except......YOU.

An energy company’s charitable donation toward breast-cancer research was met last week with allegations of “pink-washing,” while the advocacy group Breast Cancer Action called its awareness-raising drill bits “the most ludicrous piece of pink sh*t” seen all year.

Baker Hughes, one of the leading energy companies in the country, announced recently that it planned to renew its annual $100,000 donation to breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The company is also installing 1,000 pink drill bits for its fracking sites, and when it ships them, it will include information packets about breast cancer.

Cue the bizarrely Freudian liberal outrage.

Pink drill bits? Nothing phallic there at all!
Nice pun though: "Doing our bit".
