FYI, Firefox with Adblock does a pretty good job of filtering .. well, all of that. Looks good in Safari, though; neat post.

Aha! I was wondering what I was missing.

Risky to come to work with those dead fish eyes

You're not kidding. And you should have seen the fit my boss pitched when he saw those dead human eyes on my desk.

Golden Circle, an Australian food company, markets its sarsaparilla under the name of — you guessed it — SARS! (According to this report from '03, the outbreak of the virus of the same name might have actually boosted sales.)

gottabefunky, I love that. Well, I guess both things about it: that there were airplane haters around whom this is presumably replying to and that a simple trumpeting of assertions in favor of planes would be swallowed easily by the target populace. Although come to think of it, today's genetically-modified-crops debates aren't much different.

A few years back, there was a local (ie somewhere in the mid-Atlantic states, anyway) a small soda bottling company that sold its products under the name "Golden Stream" ...

"Yeah, buddy, I got your Golden Stream ... RIGHT HERE!!!!"
