Weird Ads

Ever come across an ad that just didn't seem quite right?

How about one that had an embarrassing mis-spelling?

Or one that was downright weird?

We get ours regularly now through Street Talk, "Chic Makati Living (Trusted Service Since 2002!) Where All Your Living Choices Are Made Easy!"

That's what it says. And I suppose it's true, if all your choices in life revolve around dieting, whitening your skin, massages, parties, real estate, massages, tutors, getting fast cash, and (did I mention?) massages! Of its twelve pages, five feature nothing more than massage services. All my living choices, huh? I like a massage as much as anybody, but I had no idea the citizens of Makati spent that much time getting them and quite frankly, I feel left out!

I could try this place......but they don't seem too confident in their service. It's just "OK".

Not great. Just OK.

Not exceptional. Not fabulous. Not soothing. Just OK.

If I want an OK massage I'll have a cat do it. You know, how they do right before they walk around in a circle when they get ready to lay down.

This place doesn't seem quite right:I've heard of spas that use chocolate baths and all sorts of other things they say are good for your skin, but cheese?!

Oh, wait. No. Maybe they don't use cheese. Maybe they mean their massages aren't even OK, like the OK Massage & Spa. They're even worse. You know...a really cheesy massage?


Moving on...and while the thought of food is still at hand...check out this place:Is this where Willy Wonka sold all those edible dishes? (Don't know what I'm talking about? Go watch the original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory starring Gene Wilder, then come back to this post.) I think I'd rather not find out. The owners should get a new name for their restaurant.

Incomplete sentence:Get Rid?

Manuel! Leinor! C'mon! That's not a sentence! Sesame Street's Big Bird may not know that abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz isn't a word, but at least he speaks in complete sentences!
