This ad is plastered all over the city, I thought it was kinda funny:
What definition of 'funny' are you using?
Okay, I think it's funny, at least.
Very interesting...ads a whole new dimension on safe dating...
Finding humor in that ad is a stretch, although just about anything will resonate with a selected audience even when the words and imagery are offensive.
i find it amusing myself.
I stab my dates with something other than a kabob stick
Now that was funny.
I find it offensive. It would put me off eating there.
Perhaps the restaurant should have gone with this: "Now at least you can officially stick it to the person who delivers the check to your table."
I am sure men would view it differently if a knife were pictured along with these words: "Ladies, you are now free to castrate your date once you leave the premises."
Both are piercing and penetrating.
i find it amusing as well. hehehe
Differently? How so? I think this is in bad taste, and I think *that* is in, if anything, even worse taste.
isn't that the original joke? haha.
As do I ... just trying to point out how some men might find the perverse humor in the notion that the stick is intended for the woman, but when the tables are turned so might the opinion of such an ad (even an alternative one).
Haha, that's funny. I don't see how you could find it offensive. It's a JOKE.
Thank you. its funny
Well you find it funny, I find it offensive. I am aware that is (meant to be) a joke - but that joke isn't funny...
I was just curious how you find it offensive?
I see your point.
I am concerned that we are sending messages through advertising that somethings are just OK. Sort of like the "Free Sex" posters used in my HS to gain attention for class elections back in the 70's.
its typical shock tactic marketing
It's the message that violence is somehow OK. What do you find funny about it?
But not very good...
It's joking that violence is OK. Nobody is actually gonna stab their date with it after a meal. I find it funny because it's just a funny thought of someone thinking that. I just think you're a little over sensitive.
I am aware that no-one is likely to stab their date after a meal but that is not the point. I don't see any irony in this advert at all - it's just poor. I don't think I am oversensitive - I think some people have a low humour threshold.
Actually, erm, look up "restaurant stabbing" on news.google.com some time.
But mostly I agree... I don't mind violent or graphic humor, but it has to actually be funny to me.... I have a low tolerance for non-funny, violent or graphic humor.
