Stop the insanity

Remember Anytober? And Fruitabulous, and those other ridiculous non-rhyming, non-punning marketing terms? Well, unfortunately, there are more where those came from ...

(I'm including photos where possible, so you know I'm not making these up. As if I could.)

In a slightly different category, we have:

Technically, these don't violate the non-rhyming rule — "frydrate" sounds like hydrate, and "YOURgage" sounds like mortgage. But. They're still stupid. (How's that for objective criticism?)

Please let the insanity stop.

(Hat tip to Patrick Donnelly for the YOURgage contribution. Thanks a lot, Pat.)


  1. We've got another one!

    Pizzaplicity? Somebody needs to get seriously fired.

  2. Oh, my lord.

    I went to the site, but I still can't figure out what they're trying to say. Is the "plicity" for "simplicity" or "multiplicity"? Probably both, which somehow makes it worse.

    I know how many people it takes to approve this kind of thing.
