Google ads smart yet dumb and offensive [05 Feb 2008|11:05pm]
Unfortunate Ads

I was checking out the book in the above screenshot while researching the claim that domestic violence peaks on Super Bowl Sunday. This claim seems to be false, according to snopes and just about everyone else on the internets. So I have to retract my mockery of the Victoria Secret ad for its "Let the real games begin" which seemed insanely insensitive when considered against what I thought was knowledge but turned out to be just more shifting grains of sand.

Several years ago, I wrote an angry letter to Yahoo after my searches while doing research on pregnancy discrimination kept turning up advertisements for "What to cook for dinner tonight," etc. I have to say though, these Google ads in the lower left take the cake.
