Remember when Fox & Friends said that we didn’t need Planned Parenthood because we could go to Walgreens to get pap smears? Yes, that actually happened.

This Saturday, grab some friends, a flipcam (RIP) or your trusty video-capable smartphone and head to your closest Walgreens.

Head inside and kindly ask the folks behind the counter for a pap smear, please – because you heard that’s one of the things their store offers.
Record your entrance, their reaction and the subsequent conversations (which are bound to bring the lolz). Check out the Facebook event if you want more details and/or a place to share your clips.
Spread the word, it’s Pap Smear Saturday! (If you tweet about it, use the #papsmearplease hashtag so we can track folks getting involved).
