Thanksgiving Criticism Deflector (Posthumous Bonus)

Even though I’m not doing this blog anymore, occasionally I get bored at work & throw up CL ads just to amuse myself. One of said ads made its way to CNBC reporter Jane Wells (class act) & she posted an article on it. I figured y’all are bored at work too, so here ya go.

  • Wonder what the Christmas party is like.
  • I decided to take the high road on this one; there were some alternative takes I was just not comfortable with.

Random Reverse Response Friday

Editor’s note: CL is teeming with rapture based hilarity. So, since I had, for some reason, been in the dark on this whole “end is nigh” thing I found a good Armageddon post to respond to.

Free: Social Distortion Ticket

Editor’s note: This CL ad is from back in November and I did not save the replies as I did not have this blogject going at the time. However, this is one of the ads, along with this one, that got me thinking about how CL ads elicit responses that can be quite entertaining. So, this post is like a prequel to the blog; also, I’ve got ads in the hopper but nothing is ripe yet. Still got a CL jones? You can always check out our sister site.

Cheers,
