“I … Well … Look … Um … Maybe … Perhaps they … Er … Miss Faversham, could you get Marketing on the line, they appear to have made something of a faux pas.”

Unbelievable. Even by our stellar standards.

It is simply not possible to imagine an ad dumber than this.

Unless, of course, Dear Reader, you know better …?

And no, we will not, no matter however you beg, plead and cajole, be drawn into speculation as to what a “Minnow Shot” might be …

The restaurant was known for its polkas, beer and fantastic high-stacked meat sandwiches. The sign? Oh, that: “Nobody beats Mayslack’s meat!” How’s that for a laugher?
