Nonsense Marketing

During the holiday season, I got several emails that made me laugh, from different companies trying to capitalize on the holidays in order to sell their products. My favorite was "Merry Christmas from Early Pregnancy!"

Wow, nothing says "Merry Christmas!" like a pregnancy test. I'm giving that to my husband this year. "Merry Christmas, and by the way, we're screwed." Good one!

Today, though I received a similar email, from All Posters. "Poster Sale, just in time for Mother's Day!" Oh, whew! What a relief! NOW I know what to get my mother-in-law. A poster! Honey, do you think we should go for young Bob Dylan or just get her a Nagel print? Maybe this one:

Happy Mother's Day!

Definitely! Cause nothing says I love you mom like lesbians from 1989.
