Yukon promotes 'The D'

Listen 5:01

The Department of Health and Social Services in the Yukon tried to connect with "The Youth" by referring to vitamin D as "The D." But "The Youth" already use "The D" to refer to "The P" (as in phallus, pecker, Peter, paynus)

Their slogan "We all need the D - Even Me!" set off a wave of Rebecca Black-level online mockery. To their credit, whether the cheekiness was intentional or not, it definitely raised awareness of vitamin D, along with raising awareness of a generation gap.
