    Do we have any amusing advertising slogans, sayings etc which we would like to share?

    To kick off, I was amused when Waitrose added a new line to their healthy eating range. Perfectly Balanced raspberry fool!   

    I do like the KitKat TV ad with the wreckers' balls. It's being run again.

    Did you have an add for yellow pages anywhere.
    In Australia we had one with two ladies the boss and the worker.
    She forgets to put the business add in the local directory and the bosses line to her is
    "not happy Jan"
    It was very funny here.

    We currently have a pair of actors in the Jedward camp advertising 118. Annoyingly amusing

    In which Bond film did someone open a window behind the first letter of a huge hoarding which read Shell Lubrication? The rewording was "subtly" done.

    I get the most laughs from stand up comedy.
    Any favorite comics?

    You reminded me of a headline in the Sun. "Freddie Starr ate my hamster".

    Freddie was funny for a very short time span and then absolutely annoying. He could sing quite well and would always ruin the song

    Another comic we like is Vince Earl. He was Ron in the soap Brookside.

    We were entertained by Vince during a cruise. He was hilarious, a real old fashioned trooper. Ron and his wife were on board for a week. When an act missed the ship, Ron volunteered to fill the gap to keep us entertained. He pulled out fresh material for a 45 minute stint.

    I remember seeing Ron on the TV series "The Comedians," a 1970s TV series on which the likes of Frank Carson, Russ Abbott and Charlie Williams made their debuts.

    Russell Howard is good and Michael Macintyre! I don't watch much tv so the ads are passing me by! Jack Dee is also a favourite of mine, so droll.

    I do love all your suggestions apart from hamster dude, he was an idiot!

    I have brought this in from the anything goes thread.

    Originally Posted by Gabriel1
    I watched World's Craziest Fools last night........I really can't remember the last time I laughed so much.

    If you are in the UK it's on BBC 3.

    The Archangel
    Just watched it on iPlayer after reading this, my best bit was the phone call.

    911....Hello.
    Man: Can you please send an ambulance to get my wife, she was attacked by a Warthog.

    Officer: Where do you live ?

    Man: Eucalyptus Drive.

    Officer: Can you spell that sir.

    Man: Er....I'll just drag her over to Oak Drive and you can come get her there.

    You can't make this stuff up!!!!

    I cannot find it.
