Art Directors Gone Wild! Shut-up, Brazil!

(click ad, via)
It has come to this for the maybe murdered Dutch master: shot in the fucking head in a fucking idiotic Brazilian paintball ad. The nearly impossible to read headline: "Van Gogh lost his ear. And if he hadn't paid attention, would've lost his eye as well."
If the copywriter would've made the tagline "Only the best painters survive" the headline, well, at least we would have been on the dirt path leading to the road to making a lick of sense. Shut-up, Brazil.
Ad agency: Festo, Cascavel/PR.

A mash-up of "it's come" and "it has come"...

I know it's come = it has come. I didn't know why it was it's comeS. The redundant "s" threw me off. You know I am a grammar cunt.

It was a hasty mash-up...

Van Gogh's Prayer
By János Pilinszky

A battle lost in the cornfields
and in the sky a victory.
Birds, the sun and birds again.
By night, what will be left of me?

By night, only a row of lamps,
a wall of yellow clay that shines,
and down the garden, through the trees, like candles in a row, the panes;

there I dwelt once and dwell no longer— I can't live where I once lived, though the roof there used to cover me. Lord, you covered me long ago.

There's something really depressing about a guy who enjoys picking up on others' mistakes online.

I picture someone chuckling to themselves, unaware that they're actually deeply depressed.

Are you trying to psychoanalyze the Grammar Cunt?

Frankly, there is something really depressing about an anonymous individual taking the time to tell me how "deeply depressed" I must be. That did give me a chuckle. FYI, I am very happy. The only thing that depresses me is when people write its when they mean it's or loose when they mean lose.
