From the Racked Inbox: "I've been following the Heartschallenger Twitter for a week now and after finally being able to track it down I was let down because they've been instructed not to give any of the free totes to anyone with a penis. Bogus." Sir, did you try the "I'm picking one up for my girlfriend" excuse? If all else fails, shed some tears. [Racked Inbox]
