Burger King's New Blow Job Ad - Open Thread

Burger King, Carl's Jr. Remind Us: Burgers = Sex, Duh

Two sexy burger ad revelations today. First, the burger-as-blow-job Burger King ad burst onto the scene, second, The Hills' Audrina Partridge becomes the latest scantily clad lady to make love to, I mean, to lustily eat a Carl's Jr. burger. In the ad, that started airing today, Partridge pretends to eat a ginormous pineapple burger while lying on a beach in a bikini, alternately resting the burger on her toned tummy. The tagline: "More than just a piece of meat." The ad sends exactly the opposite message of course. Partridge, just like Paris Hilton and Padma Lakshmi before her, has every right to chow down on this burger, but to suggest they all do so on the regular is just silly. To make women envious, and men horny, well, that’s advertising for you...........

Visit the link, at the bottom of the poster it says: "BK Super Seven Incher"! and the rest has me still laughing, we are rather quickly evolving into what ever comes next, and it ain't anything advanced!!!

"Be all that you can be .. in the Army"

The Army's slogan for many years in their commercials has been "Be all that you can be" and it gives the inspiring notion that if you join the Army you can achieve great things limited only by yourself.

With one little exception, you can't be all that you are as a person thanks to DADT.

So much for Truth in Advertising.

Consumers Abused by Default Choices

At some point the business sector realized the best way to take advantage of consumers was to use default options that make them spend money. A default option works because it creates an automatic decision by the consumer doing nothing. And doing nothing is the path of least resistance for time-poor consumers struggling to balance the many difficult responsibilities associated with work, family, maintaining financial security, and coping with stresses on their health.
