Chip Shot: Officer: “Sir, it looks like your wife got run over by a truck.” Husband: “I know, but she has a great personality.” Officer: “Ah, what?”

 

Bob Uecker’s Famous “Wrong Seat”

 

 


Milwaukee and the Brewers are so lucky to still have this guy as their baseball announcer. Enjoy one of his most epic commercials.

 

 

The commercial became so famous that there is now an actual “Bob Uecker Seat” at one of the farthest most points of Miller Park. You can have your photo taken sitting next to a stature of Uecker.

 

 

 

“Stupid” Defined

 

 

 

He’s gotta be too dumb to use it.

 

 

 

Yup, she jumped out of a helicopter with her arms up, beneath the spinning blades.

 

 

 

Not a good place for an outlet.

 

 

 

Only in California are people likely to believe this.

 

 

 

 A lady didn't want to lose the keys to her padlock, so this is how she solved the problem.

The “End” of Prostate Cancer

 

 

Host of “Dirty Jobs” Mike Rowe has gotten himself into a lot of stinky situations, but this latest one might be his most uncomfortable yet: a real-life prostate exam in front of the camera. Educational and hilarious.

 

This pretty well sums up the way my day went yesterday.

Chip Shot: Why do blind people walk their dogs so much? 

These People Definitely “Over Packed”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Marketing Miscues … Old and New

 

 

I don’t think it’s a good idea to put a picture of Halloween candy over  a display of Tide Pods.

 

 

I can relate to this …

 

 

Just put the gun in your mouth and pull the trigger. What could anyone see as being wrong with that?

Unusual Road Signs

 

 

I got nothin ... except, there must be a reason for the sign.

 

 

Poor graphic design.

Brilliant Ideas

 

 

 

In addition to eliminating bathroom odors, this Febreze comes with an air horn to drown out sounds in the bathroom. (Thanks, Dick Alpert, for sharing this.)

I saw this photo of a hand and it reminded me of one of my favorite movies.

Chip Shot: Yesterday I went to a “temporary tattoo parlor” to get a tattoo. It wouldn’t wash off this morning, so I went back to complain, but the tattoo parlor wasn’t there.

Best Political Ad Ever! Seriously


Phill Mamouf-Wifarts just released the most honest political ad in history.

Truth in Advertising?

 

 

Marketing Miscues

 

 

Look again.

 

 

The guy has three hands!

 

 

 

 

 

Back when everyone smoked and the surgeon general even recommended a certain cigarette brand over others, The Flinstones advertised for cigarettes brands in their show.

Chip Shot: Son: Dad can we go to a haunted house this Halloween?

Dad: What’s wrong with the one we live in?

Son: What?

Dad: Goodnight, son.

 

Humorous and Creative Print Ads That Get Their Points Across

 

I guess Lazer Bike Helmets work!

  

Yes, that tooth brush looks flexible.

 

This is an example of when you could really use Volkswagen Park Assist technology.

You’re Old if you Remember These Vintage Ads

Remember tab? I sure do because our refrigerator is never without a few cans of the stuff. The copy says, “Have a shape he can’t forget.”  Probably would be considered sexist today. 

 

 

Remember Alex Karras and his wife Susan Clark? Karras played for the Detroit Lions and met his wife while making a movie about Babe Didrikson.

 

 

Here’s an ad from 1927. I’ll bet most of you didn’t know that when Admiral Byrd explored Antarctica, his research group took along a Kohler Generator. In fact, Kohler remains a primary manufacture of stand-by generators.

MeUndies Makes Star Wars Funny

 

Here’s a short funny MeUndies Star Wars ad.
