Writing Shittier than the Shit from a Shitbeast from the Planet Shitto in the Shitty Way Galaxy.

(click ad to read)
From Verizon, a new nominee for the Bad Copywriting Hall of Fame—joining this cellphone hyperbole, this gym ad headline, this lazy beer ad, this Starbucks billboard, the Energy Hog, this "explosive" airport poster, this Svedka fembot ad, and thrice nominated Kenneth Cole.

Mouse cannot see the cheese, let alone chase it, if it was shot out of a bazooka.

Also, a mouse run faster to save its life than for food.

Hehe...what dorks!

Who are these copywriters? Are they tied up in a room while the clients hijack their Macs? I hope so.

Don't each of those tend to move slower than what they are chasing?

and I'm beat out of jobs by -these- people? This must be thanks to that whole user generated content fad, or the fact that people become absolutely brain-numb whenever a big agency's name is mentioned.

A dog can only run so fast, regardless of what it's chasing. So it boils down to 'faster than a dog'. Which would have been far better.

No, scratch that. 'Faster than the fastest dog'.
