Broadcast News

This is a promotional ad that's been going up around the Vermillion, SD, area:

Is it too much to ask of a newspaper to proofread their ads?

A big thank you goes out to Nick Zachariasen, our man in South Dakotas!

Butt Burger

When McDonald's signs go horribly, horribly wrong.
There more I could say here, but I'll refrain.

Thanks, once again, to Gallery stalwart Dave Carvell for helping to show us the true side of McD's.

Skool Daze

Here's something that recently appeared in the Broomfield Enterprise newspaper. It's a treasure trove of advertising goodness:

This is an ad for a learning center?! Where to begin? The egregious misspellings ("throroughly" and "ins't"), the lack of agreement between "child" and "their," the inappropriate use of quotation marks, and the use of the British single quote instead of the American double. And let's not forget the annoying close up of the kid's face. What's not to love?

Much thanks to Kathy Wirtes for sending me this ad. Keep 'em coming, Kathy!

Annoying J. Crew Model of the Week - 9/27/10

After a one month hiatus, the Gallery of the Absurd is back! And to start us off again I present to you the Annoying J. Crew Model for the week of September 23rd:

Here is another in a series of really skinny models that you'll find in the J. Crew catalog pages. This one isn't as bad as some they've featured (although she makes up for it by looking like a pretentious freak).

For a more healthful alternative to women's self image, be sure to visit the website About-Face. You'll be glad you did.
