a post, a rant, etc
First off, I still can't get the VC here at DT. (He still can't get stupid blogger to take his comments - ed.)
I haven't checked DD, but will.
Second, here's a lighter from Beaver Liquors in Beaver Creek, Colorado. When they first started, they were just "Beaver Liquors". Plain, classy, full of double entendre. THEN, either somebody bought the place and hired a hack ad agency or did their own work, and added "and Lips, Too" in horrible Brush Script, no kerning, no nothing. But WHAT DOES IT MEAN? They have a whole line of stuff with THIS ON IT! And PEOPLE BUY IT!
Where's the "understatement"?
I too am filled with outrage and contempt. Benny is right. ALL CAPS RIGHT! Subtlety, style and a basic understanding of humor may be too much to expect from this company, but could they at least "focus group" the thing on a 12-year-old and see if it MAKES SENSE before they foist it on the public?
