Tackiest ad of the year award goes to....

No effing joke, the ad above is on a site that shall remain nameless *coughMikeOzcough*.

What kind of awful insurance company publishes an ad depicting a child crying, presumably in front of his parent's freshly erected tombstone? We all pretty much know the idea behind life insurance is that there will be money for your kids in case you croak. But to show a picture of this scenario is simply tacky and tasteless.

So there!

Today I am feeling quite smug and self-satisfied because yesterday's post garnered me a host of new readers, albeit temporary. It's actually an official record for me, something like 200 unique visitors in the last 24 hours. They all want to know why Woody & crew were fired from their radio show, and as it happens, no one had blogged or written any news articles about the event. Until me, bitches!

It's weird to me that a show listened to by so many people could suddenly be off the air, with no explanation from any news source. I wonder if this is typical, or a product of our new, newsless society?


  1. ha! I've never even seen that on our page. I guess I need to pay better attention to our ads.

    As for the radio thing: It's pretty typical that the media just scoots people away and never offers an explanation what happens to them. It's always a "personnel matter" that they "can't discuss" whenever a radio host or news anchor is suddenly AWOL.

  2. I actually saw that ad for the first time a couple of weeks ago and accidentally clicked away from it. I spent the next 15 minutes trying to find it again, to no avail. With luck, I happened upon it again the other day, haha!

    I knew you'd know the answer to my radio question. Thanks!
