Because some days you just need to laugh

“Hooray! I’ve been exposed to this message enough to move from awareness to consideration!” –tpdsaa.Tmblr

And other things real people don’t say about advertising:
“Finally I can generate content for major brands!”
“Fantastic! My bank has thrown transmedia storytelling in the mix.  Now, that’s something I’m willing to pro-actively engage with.”
“That subject line totally reached out and grabbed me!”

Ever wonder what all those advertising terms really mean? NEW – Different color from previous design. ALL NEW – Parts are not interchangeable with previous design. FOOLPROOF OPERATION – No provision for adjustments. ADVANCED DESIGN – The advertising agency doesn’t understand it. REDESIGNED – Previous flaws fixed – we hope. YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT – We finally got one to work. MAINTENANCE FREE – Impossible to fix. MEETS ALL STANDARDS – Ours, not yours. SOLID-STATE – Heavy as hell.

Advertising sure brings quick results–last week I advertised for a night watchman–the same night my safe was robbed.

Q. How many copywriters does it take to change a light bulb? A. “NOBODY changes ANYTHING!!” Q. How many art directors does it take to change a light bulb? A. “Does it have to be a light bulb?”

“How to Start a Small Advertising Business: A man goes to his bank manager and says, “I’d like to start a small advertising business. How do I go about it?”
The bank manager leans back, clasps his hands together on his gut and replies, “Buy a big one and wait.””

Hope you had a good chuckle!
