    Sad. And I know the stock photographer who took that top photo. Sucks to see your work being used in tacky advertising.

    This is Spirit Airlines, the same company that had a Hunt for Jimmy Hoffa Sale, a MILF sale, and a Muff Diving sale. They do ads like these so they go viral and get free advertising all over the internet. It's genius, really.

    Spirit sucks anyway - they're the ones who's charging you for carry-on luggage.

    I get where they're going with it. But this is truly a huge tragedy - people lost their lives, their livelihoods, and of course, the environmental impact. I just think it's in poor taste. My $.02.


    The Durex ones, on the other and, are HILARIOUS.

    Heh, my mind was focused on the word "beaches" as an alternate word some use for women. I wasn't thinking of the oil spill.

    anyone else in South Florida? have you noticed it more crowded due to the florida panhandle basically a dead zone? I have noticed a slight uptick, but its hard to really make any overall conclusions.

    I'm in Panama City Beach right now, and it's far from "dead". Oh sure, it's not shoulder-to-shoulder, but it's definitely not a ghost town. Then again, PCB hasn't been hit really hard by the Tarball Brigade yet.
