So Apparently I'm a Pornographer Now.

I just got this notification from Google AdSense:


During a recent review of your account we found that you are currently
displaying Google ads in a manner that is not compliant with our program


ADULT/PORNOGRAPHY: As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers
are not permitted to place Google ads on pages with pornographic content.
This includes photos or videos which contain full nudity or sexual

So I guess something on the Daily Irritant is just too filthy for AdSense. If anyone has any suggestions as to what the naughty item is, I'd be happy to delete the offending picture or whatever. I certainly don't want to be thought of as a smut peddler.

Terrible marketing Campaigns -- T-Mobile

So, someone at an ad agency saw the "I'm a Mac" Apple commercials and thought, "hey, we should do something like that. Something totally like that, only without the humor or charm. We'll even get a guy from the Daily Show to be in it so no one can possibly miss the fact that we're just ripping off the Mac ads."

"And let's get the least charismatic spokeswoman we can find to portray our product. Someone who's young and sorta pretty but still manages too be completely unappealing."
Who is the target market for this? People who detest originality? I would say people who hate AT&T, but that's pretty much the entire human race.

Sorry About That

 I'm not sure what went wrong with yesterday's FOX-related post.
This was supposed to be the first video.
