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.
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?
