As a ThunderJournalist who is not above hosting contextual ads on my site, I don't really have much of a critical leg to stand on when it comes to criticizing others who do so as well.

That said, a certain local daily newspaper has been sporting the following online ad:


I mean, GAHHHHHHH! Right? Grandpa's wearing a Speedo and flexing his geriatric man boobs to highlight his pace-maker. If I saw that ad appearing on this lowly ThunderJournal, I couldn't ban it fast enough.

NOTE: Posting the ad for the purposes of ridicule is not the same thing as hosting it as a paying advertisement. Just so we're clear here.

Actually, I believe that's a chemo port, not a pacemaker....

Well, regardless, I don't really want to see it in an advertisement. UNLESS it's an advertisement for CHEMO PORTS.
