Those Darn Young Uns!

A Controversial ad was pulled off buses in New York. The ad was dsiplayed on about 200 buses across the city and showed "a suggestively posed woman in hot pants kneeling among a pile of books beside the snappy slogan 'Read Books, Get Brain.'" An ad for literacy perhaps? Nope. It was a clothing company that ran the ad and apparently "get brain" is street slang for oral sex. Of course all the "grown ups" are now appalled and offended and claiming they are the ones who are the victims here, plus the ads are demeaning to women. Funny when they thought it was about literacy the ads were just fine. Hmmm, can you say covering their asses? (Thanks to my Bookman for the link).
