I worked for a newspaper as a copy editor for about two years. For Halloween one year, the Features page was going to run a story about how full-size candy bars were better than fun-size. The headline choices were:

BIGGER IS BETTER, SIZE MATTERS, and TREAT 'EM RIGHT.

.... yeah.

The features editor couldn't understand why we thought the headlines were ill advised (meanwhile the entire copy desk was giggling uncontrollably).

Okay, somebody didn't have their morning coffee. Even without the caffiene boost I can't believe they missed that.

So I gotta ask...does that mean it's a turn-off when his package is too big, or when it's too small?

just sayin'.

Nate said...

It's not the size of the package, it's what it takes to support it!

Laura, I think when politician's are involved the answer to your question is 'yes'. ;-)

Dave Shaw said...

AACK! I didn't really put that apostrophe in there, did I?

I'm with Laura on this one! I now realize how immature I am because I've been chuckling way too long!

The real benefit of living in a free country: Being allowed to laugh at our politicians. :)
