Sweet Chocolatey Commercialism!


So I noticed the other day that Oreo cookies now have the "got milk?" logo emblazoned across them:

Got Oreo?
Yes, I know it's blurry. Bear with me here.

Great. So now, even the food that I eat; food that I paid for, mind you; is covered with cross-promotional advertising for another product.

I, for one, can't wait for the day that hospitals start tatooing diaper advertisements onto babies upon birth.

Wow, that's a really impressive increase there.

And now, yet another random sign posted on every available vertical surface on the University of Scranton campus:

Obnoxious uofsnow flyer
At one point, there was an entire rainforest in the form of these flyers occupying the St. Thomas Hall stairwell.

Wow, 98%, that's a pretty big number. But wait, according to that text on the bottom, the increase in hits occured during the week of January 31 through February 5, during which the site recieved 97.8% more hits than in the previous week (January 23-30). Let's take a look at the University's academic calendar, shall we?

"Housing opens for returning students at noon - January 30"...

Gee, you don't think that the 98% increase was due to the fact that there was nobody on campus last week, do you?

*Boiiiiiiiiing again!*
