Advertising Gems

Last night, while reading the latest issue of National Geographic, I stumbled across this ad, which almost made me choke on my macaroni & cheese, because I am clearly: 1. Not an adult by any means, seeing as the mac & cheese I was eating was the Kraft variety and had a dinosaur on the box and I spit out a mouthful when I read the headline of this ad and 2. I am obviously not the demographic this magazine is shooting for, since this ad not only looks like it was conceptualized and written by someone 40 years my senior, but this person also is clearly not familiar with the internets and the wide array of pornography available and the equally delightful names for sex acts.

Who the fuck is gonna read all that copy? I still haven't. Assuming their target market can actually read the fine print in the first place, they have way better things to do with their time, like shuffleboard, bingo and not dying.

Sadly, I have never been on the receiving end of a pearl necklace, the real kind or the sexy kind, but only cuz I was laboring under the misapprehension that they were so expensive. This changes errrrything.
