Various grammar goofs and typos aside (everything’s?), MRP is just stopped in my tracks by the leading question on this flyer. How do you even begin to answer this?

Hat tip to Nikita, who wrote,  “I did not know whether to send it to MRP, put it up on the Wall of Uncomfortable Advertising in my office, or just stare in amazement.”  Well, thanks to the magic of MRP, you can do all three.



  1. Love it! Since this obviously worked, I would advise this person to move the image down to the next section, or bottom, and make the outlandish question even more bold and striking, even at the expense of making the lower portion smaller. It’s the examples that stop us in our tracks that probably haven’t gone far enough to make us wet our pants. Ellen would be surprised how this might drive more calls.

    Good Hunting.

  2. I never considered how taxing cleaning myself had become. I’m giving Ellen a call… never.

  3. Not to worry Ellen. I believe.

  4. This is quite wonderful. The people sitting around me in the cafe are giving me odd looks, as I sit in their midst, giggling 🙂

  5. Thanks for visiting, Jon! As for the people giving you odd looks, well, whatever. They don’t know. 🙂
