This one was a real brainy ad, but mind the references on medical terms (also German cuisine) lest Big A call you a porn spammer...
You know those who, having been mugged and stabbed, fired, dog run over, house burned down, wife eloped with best friend, daughters becoming prostitutes and their countries invaded - still say that "all is well"?
I'm obviously not one of them.

What can I say? They offered me a sponsorship deal. Clinical trials show that Dr. Schmigmund's Mental Fixative is as effective as Repressitol, at half the price and with a great new taste. It's the ego-stabilizer I'm legally obliged to take!

Ach, well. It'll never top Dr. Nil's Medicinal Megaweed for pure addictive habit forming relaxation of Anaconda-mass-lock induced stress.

Okay Doc, I did the plug now PLEASE forward my month's supply of Megaweed. I'm Jonesin', man....

I've just noticed that you're getting a bit more odd than your usual self... Leaving the tower for a vacation to Raxxla?!

Get real!

Do you have any idea of the tourist trap you're going to? Of course, you'll be able to say "I've been there" as if it was the hottest place in the Ooniverse, but for those who know the truth...

To beguin with, it's funny how all the agencies book you on the very same (and only) hotel - the infamous Raxxla Hilton...
How can you gloat about your dream vacation without confessing about the run-down lodgings, their bug-infested beds and (even though Ahruman doesn't like me to discuss food, you must be informed) the distasteful slop (some grit porridge with rubbery rabbit meat - or at least they say it's rabbit) that they serve at every meal you take as a part of the travel agents' plan?
Then you have two choices of beach: the polluted one, or the artificial one - and you can't find a shade in neither unless you pay by the hour for a parasol. If there are any available, which of course there usually aren't.

Or, maybe you like to be harassed by grubby peddlers. Trying to push a "lucky seven-sided trumble skin furry dice"(!) or "the only surviving map to Earth" at grossly inflated prices, they'll do their best to short change you if you actually buy their junk...

The local females are nice, though. Just don't get too cozy if you don't want to get some strange side effects. There, you see, "Spotted Dick" isn't a culinary term but a medical one.

By the way, some felines develop strange eating habits there, and often on their return they get in trouble with the cops on charges of cannibalism. I believe it's got something to do with the omnipresent "rabbit" meat, but I don't have the slightest intention of proving it...


And how do I know all this, you ask me?






I don't want to talk about it!

Speaking of people getting a bit more odd than their usual self... what about you, Maegil? I mean, c'me on, a vacation trip to Raxxla? Bah!

And by the way, what the heck is this post doing in this thread? To quote some guy, though perhaps not by the letter: I wanna sleep here! Post in your own playgrounds, namely at the place where Hesperus announced his forthcoming journey!

It's out of context!
It was meant as "hi, welcome, make yourself at home - as you can see I did", but apparently the joke fell flat... :roll:

Sorry, the Jinn is out of the bottle. So, earnestly, what were you looking for in a place where there aren't even decent sailing grounds? (Not to my knowledge, that is.) And the Coast Guard (read: INRA) is all over the place?!? I mean, seriously, you're kidding me! Have you really expected a "joyful vacation", an "experience only a chosen few will get in their lifetime", as the ridiculous advertisements put it (to get a bit on-topic again: anybody interested in putting this on an ad?)? On the other hand, that's kind of exactly the thing you got there, isn't it? :P :wink:

And at this point the topic went totally off track, crossed four lanes of busy rush-hour traffic (causing an almighty pile-up), went through two concrete road partitions, down an embankment rolling eight times before it erupted in a cloud of flames and acrid black smoke, spreading a pall of asbestos-tainted dust over a thirty mile area.

And Ahruman wept.

why? This topic is about creating funny adds, so creting a funny avatar is related.
IMO. :p :lol:

Besides, this thread became the board's best lunacy bin ever since the spammers' dearth begun...

Hmmm... that last ad certainly seems to have touched a nerve, so to speak. I wonder why the sudden rush of interest? Has Dr Schmigmund found his target market? :wink:
