...um, so tuck into some Caroli® Brand Fox Loaf?


(click ad for closer look)
Romanian processed meats company Caroli (which shares its name with a disease that causes hypertension) tells us "we are not a vegetarian species." Well then: to support your point, perhaps you should've made sure the product photography in your ad looked better than the carrots you're so glibly making fun of, yes? I'm no vegan, but that "meat" loaf looks like cadaver flesh. But maybe this a provincial thing—anybody know if Romanians are cannibals? That crap almost looks as bad as the Spiderman 3™ cheeseburger. Next time, at least give us some hot phallic symbolism. Although for pure selling power, nothing beats supermodels playing with fatty meats.

This ad brings to life Wilde's observation about the unspeakable and the uneatable.

I'm from Romania and no, we're not cannibals (yet).

Two observations:

1. Caroli makes horrible advertising here (you should see the TV ad in which they replaced the "Parole, Parole" chorus from an oldie piece of Italian (or was it French) song with "Caroli, Caroli" and that features the happy_family_around_the_table TM gorging on some Caroli salamis and whatnot)

2. that's not meat per se, it's some sort of smoked meat product, filled with conservants and so on.

3. that ad is most certainly a ghost - I have never seen it used, Romanians don't hunt on horses and with dogs (and they never had). just some agency trying to grab one of those pesky awards. btw, who did it?

The only good thing that ever came out of Romania were the Romans. :P

I see a blatant meat and 2 veg on the right, there.

Romania is a strange place. I did not see any cannibalism take place while I was there, but it's entirely possible that we were served human flesh without being informed of it.

If you do find yourself there for some reason, my only words of advice are: don't try the cheese. Seriously.
