    A Pennsylvania man is suing Smart Water because it didn't make him smart.
    I am now formally announcing my lawsuit against Thin Mints.

    A lot of TV commercials are "false"
    Video games, "not actually game footage"
    Car adverts "features may not be available in your country."
    The latest Tesco "on-line delivery service." To get the driver, customer and delivery van in a close shot, they put it up their small drive. When have they ever done that?

    That cracked me up, Jane. My laughing made my Bride look up from her book and inquired. I read your two lines and she just sat there with no expression. She had questions and after I explained it all. She says, “Oh”. What is she like. Go back to the book then.
    Never mind it wasn’t wasted on me. Chortle.

    Riley all true and funny. I say funny, but the reality makes me smile like a farmer with a toothache, as we say.

    Yeah, it's no secret that a lot of TV commercials can be misleading. They often exaggerate the benefits of their products and make them look better than they actually are. The same goes for video game trailers that use cinematic sequences instead of showing actual gameplay footage, leaving us disappointed when we finally get our hands on the game. And those car ads with all those amazing features? Yeah, good luck finding them available in your country.

    How dull this person must be to expect to become smart after drinking still water.

    He probably would have felt smarter if he had just drunk directly from the still.

    I like the one which finishes up by saying "Keep away from children." Could not agree more.
    Also liked the story of the chap who went into a pharmacist and asked for nothing for his bad headache because the advert said that nothing acts faster than whatever they were advertising.

    I completely understand your frustration with false advertising. It's disappointing when products don't live up to their claims. While suing over not getting smarter from Smart Water or not becoming thin from Thin Mints may seem like a stretch, it's important for companies to be transparent and deliver on their promises. Still, marketing has become an integral part of any business, and SEO plays a crucial role in online visibility. If you want to learn more about how SEO can benefit businesses, I suggest you check out vikinglinks.com. They provide some valuable insights and resources.

    The adverts for burglar alarms make me smile. One has two neighbours talking, the one who has an alarm says that they had a break in, but the alarm went off and the burglars ran away, or words to that effect.
    In reality the burglars would have taken their time, stole what they wanted and walked away as they'd know there was no likelihood of the police attending. The most they'd have got from the police would be a crime number.

    Yes, but sadly, much of what followed wasn't a joke.
