Yes, it really is! Wikipedia claims August 14th is National Creamsicle day here in the States. I’d like to celebrate by showing you all a lovely ad from a few years ago.
“Luscious, smooth, sweet and fun. These are just a few of the words we used to describe our new Vanilla Orange Sherbert Creamsicle. These words also apply equally to America’s 2005 Rhythmic Gymnastics team and the beautiful young ladies that comprise it.”
Yeah, that’s how the paragraph in today’s picture begins. No, I’m not kidding. And it gets much, much worse.
Next week is our anniversary. It will be our 52nd show. And since we fucked off a couple of weeks we have been doing this for more than a year probably. But no matter what else, we know that next week is our anniversary and we need you to blow smoke up our ass on the hotline: 206-888-1710.
As for this week, we jizz all over Game of Thrones and I express my hatred for Hillbillies at my grocery store. I hate a lot of things. But not as much as Melzer hates midgets! Also, Beans was complaining about something but I don’t listen to her usually. Wow I’m good at advertising. Sigh.
Women have come a long way over the years. They used to be considered useless outside the home, and all that was required of them was that they kept the house tidy and had supper on the table when the man got home. The marketing of time reflected this, as is shown in today’s picture. Check it out after the jump.
Advertising agencies work hard trying to make sure that their clients’ brands are recognized the world over. Everyone is familiar with the Coke logo, or AT&T or Franklin’s Finest Instant Gravy. Advertising works whether we like it or not.
But could it be that sometimes they are too clever for their own good. Can a company spend a butt-load of money on a logo and then realize that it is so clever and subtle that nobody gets it? Yes. The pics after the jump will prove it. At least they did to me.
You try guessing what’s hidden in the logos. And because I am such a nice guy, I’m gonna give you one to get started. One that’s bugged me for a long time. Not because I can’t see it, but because I never saw it before. Federal Express has a very familiar logo. You know, the blue Fed and the orange Ex. Everyone knows it. but can you see the arrow? If you can, then you will probably do pretty well on the rest of them. If you can’t, I’ll give you a hint: You are as stupid as me and you should feel really badly about yourself.
So there you go. The arrow is over there. Is it pointing at you? At me? At the Moxie guy? Who knows? And the ones after the jump are even harder. I was gonna give you hints but then I remembered that time when I asked you for a hint. Remember? We were playing: Don’t lick the knife with the poison on it? You didn’t have anything to say then, Internet. So I don’t have anything to say now. Also, who invented that game? Licking a knife that isn’t poisoned is only marginally better!
Now get guessing after the jump! Continue reading
