Brevity is the soul of wit?

The fair helenish describes her attempts to inform Revlon of her dissatisfaction with their Light Makeup:
I wrote a very cogent letter to the Revlon people, wherein I explained that I normally liked their products, however, this one was very, very orange, and that I thought their formulation was off, and that the lightest shade they had was still much too dark... Unfortunately, the little reply box on the Revlon website only lets you have 225 characters (CHARACTERS, not words) to express your feelings, so I edited it down until it resembled a complaint that had been translated into japanese and then back again: "Put on Makeup! Makeup BAD! Orange, oh so orange! Dark! Dark bad! SCARY MAKEUP! Bad! Ugly sad girl! Angry GRR! Money! Bad orange bad!"
