Even more truth in advertising


In my last post, I wrote about a terribly misleading postcard. While doing some research about truth in advertising, I came across some interesting examples.
They needed to clarify this because people were walking into this Iowa store hoping to catch a train to Grand Central Station.

At last, no more embarrassing questions to the store workers asking if they carry the XXXL Depends adult diapers.

I called this number and told them they had won a million dollars from the king of some nation they’d never heard of. All I needed was their credit card number for a “transaction fee.”

Yes, that’s the reason a lot of men go to the gym—to see ugly women.

Do the watches tell time, or do you have to look at them?
I was once told the same thing by two muggers.

Figures, I had them come to my house at 11:00 last Monday.
Little known fact: "Dutch's" was the original name of Walmart.
This is what I’m looking for in a lawyer.
Strangely enough, this was posted outside a hardware store.

Part of a less-than-successful chain owned by the brothers “Yu,” “Soon” and “Your Mom is.”
