STEALTH!

A child

Deftly, Ms. Tsukioka, a 29-year-old experimental fashion designer, lifted a flap on her skirt to reveal a large sheet of cloth printed in bright red with a soft drink logo partly visible.

If the special picker thingy does not appear, as it does not for me, then you can use this link:

There’s no good title unused, for advertising fun news, so I wrote, a poem note, but forgot the rules of haikus.

A bunch of interesting/clever/weird ads have been bouncing around the web lately. I steal the content they stole and offer it to you. (I have ideas for actual entries, but I don’t have the time to write them…)

I can’t believe it’s yogurt

And I can’t believe you picked this as the name of your food provider.
Airtran stuck me down in concourse D of the Hartsfield memorial (until we feel bad about someone else dying) Airport where the food purveyors are less famous.
The worst part of this is how easily yogurt-like substances one may be more inclined to accept as a label for the product come to mind. At least when Fabio expressed doubt, there was no doubt about what you should feel the partially hydrogenated substance WAS.
