Truth-in-Advertising

Postby ken worley on Wed Dec 20, 2006 7:52 am

Take a well known advertising slogan, and tweak it to reflect reality.


Outback Steakhouse..No rules, just ridiculously overpriced food in an annoying, gimmicky atmosphere


Mcdonald's-I Vomit Long


Lexus. The relentless pursuit of Mercedes' customers


G.E. "We Bring Good Things to Life." (Unless those things happen to be foreign peoples, in which case, we make a bomb for that.)


"You're in Good Hands with Allstate."
Unless you file a claim whereupon we will wash them of you.

Nope. This is an Australian cereal, it seems. I looked coco puffs up, and they look awesome. Did you mean the cereal or the pastry?
