fun ad / letters / manuals
Just today I got a wonderful advertisement mail from ikea (yes I registered there) and it gave me the idea to collect fun and stupid things like that here.
From "gummy bears without fat" to "not wimpy tealights"


Here the quote from the mail:

Quote:We're so thrilled you've joined us,
we're giving you a gift

Hi <name> and a warm welcome to IKEA FAMILY. To bring you into the fold, we're giving you not 1, not 2, but 100 gifts - a lovely big bag of tealights!
....
They may be small but our tealights aren't wimpy. Every single one has been designed to burn for 4 hours. That's 400 hours in total. Or 800 episodes of Corrie. Or 1600 quick tea breaks. That's a lot of use you'll get out of your little tealights.

I am thrilled too now!!!

Did you actually get those tea lights? I could use some tea lights.

Years ago, I saw an ad for something that was appropriate for those "between the ages of 17 & up".

well... they are tealights. And I do like candles but that mail sounds a little over-enthusiastic nearly creepy Big Grin
And no I don't have them yet but I did print the voucher Big Grin

How can you live with yourself? Those TEALIGHTS are there on the shelf waiting for you, calling for you: Leela! Leela! and you won't go to take them home. It's not one or two but 100. 400 hours of free light (matches not included). 24000 minutes. What is the matter with you?

Oh, no Hallucinations 4:11 says the 'gilded sheep should be stewed in rat blood' but Morons 5:16 contradicts it. (Chas)

I would never shake a baby unless the recipe requires it.

Hmm... someone's in denial, with their sarcastic enthusiasm. Dodgy

I bet they're of great use with the tea you keep offering our new members.

Here are a few of my favourite adverts;












Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

What I also liked, I once had a can of peanuts with a remark that there would be traces of nuts in... any questions?
