Grammar Quandaries



Is the apostrophe used as a possessive or a contraction? Is "nuts" an adjective or noun? And would these be something you'd put in your pockets?

Eco Silly

While over in Italy the other month, the hotel where I stayed had this brand of toilet paper:

Outside of the silly looking tree mascot--do you really want something goofy so close to your ass?--this label raises a number of questions. What is the tree mascot holding? Is it tissue paper, a towel, or a college essay? Why does he have an "A" on his shirt? Why is the tree even wearing a shirt? And what exactly is that bird doing in the tree's "hair"? Think about it, won't you?

Doing It Doggie Style

Here's another image sent to us from that South Dakota deconstructer, Nick Zachariasen:

With a name like "Love Glove," I guess this is one product where you have to do it doggie style.

Attending to Your Package

I was at a Dodge dealership the other week, and while there I used their men's room. Inside the men's room, immediately across from and facing the toilet, was this large poster about a "hot body package":

Hmmmm. Curious that this particular image should be in such an advantageous place in the men's room, isn't it?

Donut Boy

What better way to sell a brand of coffee than a disturbed-looking guy who works at a donut shop? In the words of Nick Zachariasen, "The donut guy looks like an axe murderer. That ain't no raspberry filling in those long johns."

Thanks again to Nick, the Gallery's South Dakota correspondent.

"Real as Life" Clowning

No, clowntime isn't over, for now we have this week's installment of

RETRO-ADTIVITY

Since I featured a clown-related entry on Friday, I thought I'd follow up with same theme this weekend:

Playing with Peppy

It's Friday, and what better way to end the weekend than a clown-related Gallery entry!

Here's a frightening arcade item:
I think Peppy himself--not to mention the notion of "playing" with him--is scary enough...
...but look at the clown freak on the machine's sign.


Something wicked this way comes.

Blu Me

Another stupid Web-based ad, this one for Blu electronic cigarettes. Yes, nothing's more attractive than smoking in the face of your loved one.

And by the way, does the advertiser really need a pseudo-crotch shot to get the point across?

Deadhead Scouting



I know that the Boy Scouts are wanting to be relevant and viable, but this is a little too embarrassing.
