Comical Ads and Product Notices

Have you subscribed to Communication FUNdamentals’ RSS Feed?  Don’t miss a post! x Humor Week concludes today with our usual Friday Funnies...on steroids!  Sometimes humor results from an accident in advertising or the notices we find on the products we buy.  They have some element of humor, especially when translated into English as in this sign from Nokia.   The instructions and notices we find on products can be pretty funny.  You've seen all the warnings that can be hilarious, but here is one I actually found that tickled my funny bone.  We went to Red Lobster for Mother's Day, I brought home a "doggie bag" that had these surprising instructions.  While I was both surprised and elated that this container was microwave safe as I contemplated my lunch for the following day, I couldn't help but wonder under what circumstances I'd want to reuse it.  How many of you have always wished you could put your "doggie bag" in the dishwasher in order to use it again?   And then there are times when my homeschool mom side surfaces and I long to take a red pen and  make the necessary corrections:   No, I didn't, but someone apparently did. Well, I hope you've had a fun week here at Communicaton FUNdamentals.  Words mean things and effective communication means you'll need to express your words well.  Speech communication can be a complicated skill to learn and the English language doesn't make it any easier, but remember our motto: if you're not having fun learning speech communication, you aren't using Art of Eloquence!

    Okay, that Nokia sign is a classic! ROFLOL The container is cute, but the last one. . . well, that’s one of my editing dreams. bwahahahaha! I haven’t done it in public yet, but I think I’m gonna tuck a nice red marker in my bag for the next time the urge hits. Hey, if this mom could do it, so can I! {{{wicked evil grin}}}
