Some Gratifying Push-back Against The Destruction Of Language And Truth [CBD] | Main | Overnight Open Thread (9 Sep 2016)

What the F--?

I try not to do outrage as much anymore, but...

Okay. Whatever. I guess some people are just born stupid, and then spend most of their lives perfecting the Art of Dumb.

To just do an ad saying you're selling all mattresses at "Twin" prices, referencing 9/11, is tacky as shit.

But then to have two stacks of mattresses meant to look like the Twin Towers, knocking them over playfully, and then saying "Never Forget" as they fall?

You know how the say there are no bad suggestions in a brainstorming session? Well, that's not true, but even to the extent is is true, after the brainstorming session, you're supposed to cross out the bad suggestions.

You know, like making sport of the deadliest terrorist attack in world history.

Life is hard, and twice as hard if you're stupid.

Next Up: Miracle Mattress will memorialize the Holocaust by donating one dollar for every victim of it.

They're planning on donating a couple of thousand dollars -- certainly not the six million that They like to claim.

Open thread, obviously. We probably can't talk about these imbeciles for two long.

I need to make a correction to yesterday's Word Love thread. Jane D'oh asked what a marsh hammock was, and I said I'd heard it as hummock.

I cited Hummock to prove I heard it right.

But I didn't read far enough. Hummock is a real thing, but so is the related but distinct term "hammock." They are kind of similar, but are different.
