Things that make you go, "Huh?"
Appropriate language for seniors?
Delray Beach, FL, December 2007
One of the sad realities of modern life is that we're constantly bombarded by marketing messages. Everywhere we look, someone's trying to sell us something. There is a silver lining, however: not every message is going to be perfectly crafted. Some will even be downright funny.
For example, I did a double-take when I noticed this restaurant's menu. They're selling "Happy Endings" sundaes to senior citizens. They've even trademarked the term.
Maybe it's just me, but "Happy Endings" isn't the kind of message I'd be delivering to people of a certain age.
Your turn: Inappropriate marketing messages. Please discuss.
