Fail: Kids Glitter Tattoos

No, Mom. Not that Sexy. Chinese Sexy.

I spotted this at a kids birthday party this weekend and thought it was wrong on a couple levels. Mostly the bottom level with all the 7-yr-olds.

Fail: Drake University Campaign Aims High

You go, Drake. Way to reclaim the D+ and turn it into something positive. Oh wait, that still looks pretty damn negative. Whodathunkit? (Thanks, Pammy!)

Geography Fail: Alaska via Petaluma

[Insert Sarah Palin joke here]

Spotted this on the blacktop of my kid’s elementary school. Damned CA public school system.

Design Fail: The Tequila Your Man Could Smell Like

Look up. It’s the tequila your man could smell like. Now look down. It’s two things your design reeks of. I’m on a donkey.

Saw the La Pinta tequila flyer at The Irish Bank (brilliant place to promote pomegranate infused tequila).

Fail: Vintage CHiPs and Dukes of Hazzard Action Figures

Wheels Willy (1977) wants to show you his one-eyed willy. With a patch over one eye and a name like Willy why the hell would they mold his hand like that? He doesn’t come with any accessories. But maybe he hasn’t found the right one yet (*rim shot).

Luke Duke (1981) is just missing his rubber waist-band. I’m sure Willy can keep his eye out for one.
