Preach it, Mental Floss!
Just in case you thought this ridiculous billboard advertising a women’s wall of honour with the photo of three men was stock art, the three smiling suits who donated to the project have their names and titles in small print to apparently illustrate how important they are. Or that we still live in a man’s world. Worst of all perhaps, the guy on the far right works for an ad agency.
I can’t figure out what’s worse, using the thong instead of tong or the unnecessary apostrophe.
The second grade teacher at Elmwood Franklin Elementary in Buffalo who thought up the idea of a grammar lesson using the tweets of professional American football players is my hero.
I get wanting to make yourself sound exclusive, but might this ad for an online MBA program “you probably can’t get into” be a bit much? Or is it the prospective student that sees this ad as a challenge and responds to it with “the heck I can’t” attitude who UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School wants?
Read a different way the ad is telling me that the program isn’t really something I’ll “get into,” which sounds true of just about any MBA program. Still, I’m half tempted to apply just to see if I can get in and tell them “on second thought, I’m just not really that into you.”
