fiverr has not only the most nauseating message but manages to find uniquely punchable faces to match

I'd live to trap the Fiverr models (and board) with Edward Woodward at the end of The Wicker Man

guys i learned about the NY state family leave thing from subway ads and now i get like a whole extra month of paternity leave. the rare case of subway ads gone right.

the other of course being the school of practical philosophy, which changed my life.

I also bought a Casper mattress, but haven't taken it out of the box yet. Maybe Friday.

I bought some thinx to clean up egg spills, but they didn't really seem as ideally designed for that as advertised

fuck, if Morbs bought a Casper then they truly have won.

one month passes...

the okcupid "DTF" ones are individually quite stupid and faux-with-it (ah yes, the cool leftie kids are totally down to flirtily thumb-wrestle trump voters!) but i was on a car that had an uninterrupted frieze of them running the full length, and it's kind of great because each individual ad is split into two panels (wacky photo, caption) and since there's no additional border at the edge of an ad, it's very easy to read an image as being paired with the next caption over. hijinks ensue.

one month passes...

i giggle each time i see the ones for the show BILLIONS, but only because the first one i saw was the one with the blonde woman holding some grapes, and someone had defaced it with a speech balloon reading

I used some of my billions to buy these grapes!

BILLIONS!

Twee Seamless delivery instructions are more than just unfunny. They represent the petty demands of a privileged class that sits atop our neo-feudal order.https://t.co/PTrflFsuPj

Mainly they're unfunny though

badg, Thursday, 16 August 2018 20:55 (eleven months ago) link

yes to both points. fuck them.

the lyft adds hyping up long-established NYC destinations have been my main source of fury lately, though. you know what's a great way to get to the Cloisters or Rockaway Beach? THE FUCKING PUBLIC TRANSIT NETWORK YOU'RE STANDING IN, LOOKING AT THIS AD. kind of amazing they approve ads that are that nakedly like "fuck the subway." granted, cuomo's MTA is sliding towards disaster but i'm pretty sure a 90-minute cab ride is not going to compete with a $2.75 or less subway fare.

I like the detailed cartoon ads, they work well for avoiding looking at other people
