Subj: Mom Sells Rule-Breaking Son's Car (S573)
From: ginafm on 1/11/2008
Jan 9, 2008
Jane Hambleton has dubbed herself
the "meanest mom on the
After finding alcohol in her
son's car, she decided to sell
the car and share her 19-year-old's misdeed with everyone -
by placing an ad in the local newspaper.
The ad reads: "OLDS 1999 Intrigue.
Totally uncool parents
who obviously don't love teenage son, selling his car. Only
driven for three weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a
life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call
meanest mom on the planet."
Hambleton has heard from people
besides interested buyers
since recently placing the ad in The Des Moines Register.
The 48-year-old from Fort Dodge
says she has fielded more
than 70 telephone calls from emergency room technicians,
nurses, school counselors and even a Georgia man who
wanted to congratulate her.
"The ad cost a fortune, but you
know what? I'm telling
people what happened here," Hambleton says. "I'm not just
gonna put the car for resale when there's nothing wrong
with it, except the driver made a dumb decision.
"It's overwhelming the number
of calls I've gotten from
people saying 'Thank you, it's nice to see a responsible
parent.' So far there are no calls from anyone saying,
'You're really strict. You're real overboard, lady.'"
The only critic is her son, who
Hambleton says is "very,
very unhappy" with the ad and claims the alcohol was left
by a passenger.
Hambleton believes her son but
has decided mercy isn't the
best policy in this case. She says she set two rules when
she bought the car at Thanksgiving: No booze, and always
keep it locked.
The car has been sold, but Hambleton
says she will continue
the ad for another week - just for the feedback.

Subj: International Marketing Ads (S492c)
From: drgolfmd on 6/24/2006
The Dairy Association's huge
success with the campaign "Got
Milk?" prompted them to expand advertising to Mexico. It was
soon brought to their attention the Spanish translation read,
"Are you lactating?"
Coors put its slogan, "Turn It
Loose," into Spanish, where it
was read as "Suffer From Diarrhea."
Scandinavian vacuum manufacturer
Electrolux used the following
in an American campaign: "Nothing sucks like an Electrolux."
Clairol introduced the "Mist
Stick," a curling iron, in to
Germany only to find out that "mist" is slang for manure. Not
too many people had use for the "Manure Stick."
When Gerber started selling baby
food in Africa, they used the

Later they learned that in Africa, companies routinely put
pictures on the labels of what's inside, since many people can't
An American T-shirt maker in
Miami printed shirts for the Spanish
market which promoted the Pope's visit. Instead of "I Saw the
Pope" (el Papa), the shirts read "I Saw the Potato" (la papa).
Pepsi's "Come Alive With the
Pepsi Generation" translated into
"Pepsi Brings Your Ancestors Back From the Grave" in Chinese.
The Coca-Cola name in China was
first read as "Kekoukela",
meaning "Bite the wax tadpole" or "female horse stuffed with
wax", depending on the dialect. Coke then researched 40,000
characters to find a phonetic equivalent "kokou kole",
translating into "happiness in the mouth."
When American Airlines wanted
to advertise its new leather first
class seats in the Mexican market, it translated its "Fly In
Leather" campaign literally, which meant "Fly Naked" (vuela en
cuero) in Spanish.

Subj: Viagra Advertising Slogans (S316b)
From: gheckman on 2/18/2003
The boss of Stone Marketing called
a spontaneous staff
meeting in the middle of a particularly stressful week.
When everyone gathered, the employer, who understood the
benefits of having fun, told the burnt-out staff the
purpose of the meeting was to have a quick contest. The
theme was Viagra advertising slogans. The only rule was
that they had to use past ad slogans, originally written
for other products, that captured the essence of Viagra.
Slight variations were acceptable.
About 7 minutes later, they turned
in their suggestions
and created a Top Ten List. After all the laughter and
camaraderie, the rest of the week went very well for
The top ten:
10. Viagra, Whaazzzzz Up!
9. Viagra, The quicker pecker up!
8. Viagra, Like a rock!
7. Viagra, When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight.
6. Viagra, Be all that you can be.
5. Viagra, Reach out and touch someone.
4. Viagra, Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman.
3. Viagra, Tastes great! More filling!
2. Viagra, We bring good things to life!
And the unanimous number one slogan:
1. This is your penis... This is your penis on drugs...

Subj: Finding A Date In The Personal Column (S316b)
From: gheckman on 2/18/2003
After four years of separation,
my wife and I finally
divorced amicably. I wanted to date again, but I had
no idea of how to start, so I decided to look in the
personals column of the local newspaper.
After reading through all the
listings, I circled three
that seemed possible in terms of age and interest, but
I put off calling them and left the newspaper by the phone.
Two days later, there was a message
on my answering
machine from my ex-wife. "I came over to your house to
borrow some tools today and saw the ads you circled in the
paper. Don't call the one in the second column. It's me."
