Chip Shot: I wish I could trade my heart for another liver. That way I could drink more and care less.

Chip Shot: I remember when I was a kid I could go to the store with a$1 and come home with 3 bags of chips, 2 candy bars 6 packs of starburst and a cold drink. Nowadays they have cameras everywhere!

Mistakes

 

 

The art director for this sportswear ad must have had the wrong perspective.

 

 

 

“Wild Meaty Chunks”?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Too Bad These Ads Aren’t Real

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vintage Ads

 

 

Oh, for the times when being able to beat people up was viewed as a attribute.

 

 

 

These were terrible. I remember having contests to see who could hold a Fizzy tablet in their mouth the longest.

 

 

Signs that Caught My Glass Eyes

Yes, Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Party is back, and this ad for the show is pretty funny.

Chip Shot: As a child, you trust your parent’s driving. As an adult, you’re terrified of it.

Chip Shot: Very poor people are “dirt poor.” Very rich people are “filthy rich.” Everyone’s just a mess.

Chip Shot: If a company celebrates 365 days without an accident, it’s actually celebrating the anniversary of the accident.

Chip Shot: Man survives a bear attack with just a .22 pistol. His friend, who was shot in the knee, was not so lucky.

Chip Shot: The pencil to eraser ratio is way too optimistic.

Vintage Ads

 

 

Apparently, his wife and kids had no problem with his having syphilis????

 

 

 

Here’s a kid who know hows to play “doctor!”

 

 

 

Who knew Wonder Bread “Helps Catch Boys?” Feminists would blow a gasket over this.

 

 

 

“How to be a hit with boys!” I can hear the heads of feminists exploding.

 

 

 

“Fills all hollow places, adds beauty, curve and grace to the shoulders and neck. Safe, sure, pleasant.” What is it? I Really don’t know.

Chip Shot: I met a girl the other night who said she’d show me a “good time.” When we got outside, she ran a 40 yard dash in 4.8 seconds.

Chip Shot: Teachers who told us that if we didn’t do well in school, we’d end up garbage collectors, never once mentioned that garbage collectors made more money that they did.

Huh?

1,200 count telephone cable for around 600 buildings, cut to make room for a 48 strand fiber optics cable.

 

The original DYI emoji maker.

 

I think the Green Giant may have taken a fall.

Not Real Ads … But They Should Be

 

(Actually, this may be a real ad.)

 

 

 

A Real Product … But Should it Be?

 

 

Gin made from elephant dung. A new gin is made with botanicals sourced from elephant dung. Launched in South Africa under the brand Ibhu, “Indlovu” means elephant in several African languages. Who would even think to try to make gin like this?

Lazy Product Packaging that Could have Dire Consequences

Do you want Cooking Spray or Furniture Polish?

 

 

Check the label before getting in bed.

Best Billboard of the Month

 

Outstanding ad for a vibrator!

Who Approved the Design?

 

 

Looks like he has an anvil for an “appendage.”

 

 

The same person must have designed the placement of the trigger on this dinosaur water gun.
