In what must be one of the oddest advertisements I’ve seen in my 5 hours total time of being on a computer, there is an ad for John Chow’s website where he’s holding a knife to a panda’s throat in a threatening manner. I’m not sure if this is something that Canadian’s are aggreable to, but in the United States of America, the greatest country on Earth, this is not acceptable.
PETA would have a fit and probably send hitmen to Chow’s home if they weren’t afraid the medicine costs would keep the hitmen from returning.
So some blogger named “Bob Buskirk” apparently was having problems because Google wouldn’t give him money or something, so JC (no, not Jesus Christ, John Chow) opened up his wallet and whatever loose change fell out of his wallet he donated to an ad campaign for Bob. How nice. What about the threatened animal?
In what must have been a drunken stupor, JC is seen holding a knife to the throat of a stuffed animal panda bear. Though my college degree does not include any letters besides “d-r-o-p-o-u-t” I’m going to say that this is something less than humorous in intention and more of a threat to help boost JC’s readership. Perhaps he’s saying, if you don’t click the link and follow the ad, he’ll be seriously interested in harming animals. Where is the proper small print talking about how “no animals were injured in making this ad”? It doesn’t exist.
I respect JC’s
wallet size blogging knowledge about as much as anyone, though I’m also writing this on a domain with the word “retard” in it.
One more thing Bob, try not to kiss so much ass next time by using some else’s template design that mimics your hero. This is the Internet, you are allowed to be a little different.
