What's the Deal With THESE Guys?

I'm a regular reader of my local newspaper's web site (www.indystar.com). I like being able to stay caught up on news throughout the day. Obviously, the newspaper has to make money by selling ads and I don't fault them for that. I'm pretty good about ignoring them, but the ads supplied by Adblade always get my attention. Their strategy, it seems to me, is to grab the reader's attention with bizarre pictures that seem to have little to nothing to do with the product being advertised. Let's take a look...

Since the ads are in a newspaper, they are designed to LOOK like news. That's an old trick. But take a look at those pictures and illustrations. Apparently, Jesus either has a low credit score or is the guy who can help me lower mine--or both. I'm sure Jesus could help me lower my credit score and so much more. Kudos to Adblade for being pro-Jesus!

And what's with the guy who failed to refinance?

It looks like he also FAILED to pick out his glasses and properly insert his false teeth uppers. Not only that, but I'd be willing to guess that a 747 could fly right into this man's nose hole without clipping a wing (provided his nasal passages are properly irrigated).

I have missed reading your blogs. I have been really busy the past few months and just havn't made it a priority to check in on my blogger friends.

This blog made my day. I needed the laugh.

Interesting post. What seems like 100 years ago, I followed in my Dad's footsteps at the Indianapolis Times (he led a Pulitzer team there) and was at that paper when it closed. I remember that day when I lost my first reporting job; but more so, I remember your town, which I always loved (graduated from IU); and especially Joe Star's (maybe 2 "r"'s Steak House.
