On a recent excursion in the real world (outside the domain of the interwebs!), blogic discovered this incredibly perplexing advertisement. So perplexing, in fact, that we thought it was worth sharing for several reasons:
The model in the photo bears a striking resemblance to That Girl That You Went To High School With - the one who you’re friends with on facebook and who causes you to say what is your life? to your computer screenas you click through endless photos of her doing increasingly inane activities in what appears to be an unlimited supply of Summer Dresses That Seem Cute But Somehow Look Skanky On Her or something.
Who are these people? Donate a boat or car to Boat Angel by calling 1-800-car-angel or visiting www.boatangel.com. What is their real name? Also, that’s not how you write the letter “T.” We see what they’re trying to do, but instead of witty, it just reads as though it says “Boa Angel.” Can snakes be angels? (Apparently, yes.)
What could possibly explain the decision to put the instruction Call us! into quotation marks? Is it their slogan? Did they think that “Call us!” would make it seem like That Girl was really talking to you from the wall?
This advertisement was found in a public transit station. How many transit riders have spare boats and cars laying around? If they did, then wouldn’t they be boating or driving to work?
What do they do with people’s old boats? Back in our natural habitat, internet research revealed that Boat Angel, while more than willing to take your extra vehicles off your hands and show you videos about child kidnapping or the hazards of hard drug use, is reluctant to give out any details of their operation (except, of course, to your most pressing questions as featured in their FAQ, like “What about the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE what is their view?”).
We know you know what we’re talking about.
A blogger at “thestir.cafemom.com” offers a revolutionary (heh) perspective on the Royal Wedding in her post, “Kate and William’s Kiss Has Me Worried.” While we’re sure that Kate and William appreciate the author’s concern, we’re not so sure that articles like this are the best use of the author’s time (Lindsay Ferrier is a busy lady).
…you start agreeing with crazy caps-locked youtube commenters:
Uh oh, I think our weltschmerz is acting up again.
