Broken: Advertising cliches

The definitive list of advertising cliches.

13. Both men and women find driving deeply pleasurable, never boring or stressful.

14. Men are inherently lazy/slobbish; women are the reverse.

15. Chocolate, however, will cause women to immediately fall into the languor of the opium eater.


So true...

Funny, but not nessesarily broken... unless you think that stereotypes are broken.

I live my life by The World According to the way, I love it when Ward walks on my floor in his muddy boots (he is suuuch a goofy male) I just smile and mop up the mess in my housedress and pearls...and when Beaver and Wally never wipe their feet either, I shake my head and pull some freshly baked cookies out of the oven...those boys...

Uhh, Pyotr, stereotypes are broken when used this way.

that's funny, even the comments some users put in at the bottom of the article:

"Driving in a brand new car leads immediately to all other traffic being kept off the road.

Now that I think about it, I don't remember seeing cars pass that new one as it drives the winding road to the (insert destinatin here)or as it does city driving at night while all the traffic lights are green! classic.

I would have dated my girlfriend tonight and have gone to a restaurant with absolutely fabulous tortilla chips, but she found a chocolate store and I found a football website.

FOR THOSE BORN YESTERDAY: Your acts of stupidity draw naught but wry smiles from the people in your household (namely women & children) who have an IQ higher than that of avocados, which by the way are the most exciting experience you'll ever have when put on tortilla chips.

Right. Stereotypes are broken. But other than that there isn't much broken about this.

No comment

I am bored however.

This wasn't especially funny.

that'll be all for now.

Thank you

How is this not broken, Pyotr, or have you not had tortilla chips in a while?

This site is broken for posting a submission that has nothing to do with something broken. I'm sure there are plenty of legitimate submissions that didn't get posted so we could read this crap...

Number 22 on the website is true, children do (in some areas-especally computers) know more than adults :-)
