Subtle Ad of the Day.

(click ad, via)
Get it? Good for you.
Too subtle? Probably.
There have been a truckload of good shipping company ads ever since the FedEx fast-talker spots from the 1980s. This one's OK. At least there's an idea. Ad agency: AlmapBBDO, São Paulo. Related: two ad agencies came up with the exact same shipping company idea at the same time.

Better fix your bad "they're" before The Grammar Cunt gets here.

They essentially stole the idea (or the layout) from McCann Erickson, Turkey. See below. At least they got the execution right. Perhaps they read my comment on aotw.

No, Copyranter, I am not grading papers. Recently one of your readers, 1 T M, hurt my feelings by intimating that I was a nuisance. So I decided to stop commenting. I thought I was helping. I also thought your readers would appreciate some fine poetry. I guess I was wrong.

they could have done 'eggs and eggs' - not only the eggs not hatch, but they arrived unbroken.

This ad, not bad, had to do a double take.

Now for The Grammar Cunt, you know that the only reason a lot of us read this rantyness, is for your grammar cuntness.

I for one could use a good grammar cunt to check my work; as you can see.
