New Mexico
Traveling outside Taos, a man comes upon a Native American lying in the middle of the road with his ear pressed against the blacktop. "What are you doing?" asks the man.
The tribesman replies, "Woman, late 30s, three kids, one barking dog in late model, four-door station wagon, traveling at 65 mph."
"Amazing! You can tell all of that just by listening to the ground?"
"No," says the Native American. "They ran over me five minutes ago."

@neo - Very very nice ad mate,its a very difficult product to advertise and keepint it inoffensive is a real challenge.But whoever came up with this idea sure has a wacky mind
Very subtle and at the same time very effective.No mistaking what its for once it hits you

@neo - You should also post this in the thread on best and worst ads.Its for TV ads but I think this deserves a special mention

@mav: the 1st time I saw the ad or rather any time I see the ad, all i want to know is what was the guy (on 2nd thoughts gal) thinking when s/he created the ad. Subtle and yet so powerful. I want to sit and pick the admaker's brain. not a word said n innocent pic and yet bam it just hits you ( if u spot it in the 1st place) I have had to explain it to many friends and now I call them murderers the killed the whole point :-)

Just clowning around.

why did the clown come home soaking wet on a sunny day?

His act was all washed up.

why did the clown have a bath in the middle of his show in the circus?

coz the ringmaster had asked him to clean up his act.


santa goes to banta's house and does find him anywhere. he looks in the bathroom and finds a sick banta standing in a tub of water. on asking why so Banta replies 'doctor asked me to have this pill in water'

will be back with more.

Default In Late

The secretary came in late for work the third day in a row. The boss called her into his office and said, "Now look Sharon, I know we had a wild fling for a while, but that's over. I expect you to conduct yourself like any other employee around here. Who told you you could come and go as you please around here?"

Sharon simply smiled, lit up a cigarette, and while exhaling said, "My lawyer."

Yesterday I was having some work done at the Ford dealer. A woman came in and asked for a seven-hundred- ten.

We all looked at each other, and the mechanic asked, "What is a seven-hundred- ten?"

She replied, "You know, the little piece in the middle of the engine. I lost it and need a new one. It had always been there."

The mechanic gave the woman a piece of paper and a pen and asked her to draw what the piece looked like. She drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710 !!

He then took her over to another car which had the hood up and asked, "Is there a 710 on this car?"

She pointed and said, "Of course, it's right there."

N_C: Maybe you could give her a link to this store. The 710 cap is available online.

So, could not resist posting this one:-

Just in case the editor has wizened up, here is the screen shot.
