Those bumper cars will make women think of pubic lice. This ad is going to backfire badly.

There was mention of public lice in relation to this ad, in the Guardian on Saturday. It's not a selling point is it?!

What the divvel is all this about, Miss Scarlet. And what, pray, are public lice Mr Banana?

Well your Holiness, Sir, . . . what do you like to be called? It's about messy rides . . . I think . . . I not sure . . . Ms Cake will know . . . ?

LMAO... I'm afraid I only have personal experience with headlice... The cure for that is to apply lashing of conditioner to your wet hair and then comb it through for 20 minutes every day, breaking the legs of the little blighters. Whether that works on the other type or not...?

As to the bumper cars, they always make me travel sick and I know several people who have lost teeth and broken noses whilst playing in them.

From what my friends tell me, Always need to address the problem of the more mature woman's menstruation and the times when she can leak through a tampon and two pads in an hour and still make a mess on her shoes...

That might have been an overshare :)

In my experience, periods are more like a rollercoaster than the dodgems.

They do beat around the bush with these ads don't they (like pouring blue ink onto a nappy to show 'absorbency' when we all know what happens really). Whatever happened to 'Whoooooaaaahhh Bodyform?'

scarlet-blue said...

Oh, Ms Cake . . . I'm now considering that I get off quite lightly!

Yes, Puss, the whole of life is a flipping roller coaster.

I agree Kate, there should be much less of this beating around the bush . . .

maybe a beating in the bush?
Happy period? is that a full-stop with a smiley-face drawn on it? What utter balderdash. Now if their slogan had been 'soak up that sludge' then I'd respect thier imagery and forthrightness. Lice-like bumper-cars, those peopel are not any where near planet Wendy.

scarlet-blue said...

I don't know what planet these people are on Wendy, they're certainly not on planet Scarlet either.

Surely bumper cars need engineering Dr Maroon? Have you noticed that Beast is absent?

Well, that's one advantage of getting older Savannah, no more messy fairgrounds . . .

Please do not stand and keep your hands inside the vehicle at all times.

I am at a horrible age. Months pass, and nothing, and then suddenly it all kicks in again. One thing I will warn all you young people about: the Mittelschmerz (as my dear old ma called it) doesn't go away, and gets worse. In May I thought I had appendicitis, honest to Christ I did. And I'm the mother of six.

scarlet-blue said...

Joe: I never stand on ceremony.

Mrs P: Try Vodka and Tonic . . . I think it's the quinine in the tonic . . . several gallons will see you right . . .

My ex wife, ok, my first ex wife, worked for Proctor & Gamble and was very involved in introducing the first TV adverts for, ahem, sanitary products in the UK, which was the Always brand, I think.

I remember her moaning about the outrageous hoops they had to jump through to satisfy the Advertising Standards Authority that they weren't going to show anything which would scandalise the TV watching population! The companies are obviously still handcuffed by strict rules on what they can and can't show, just in case sensitivities are offended. Crazy.

scarlet-blue said...

I've thought about this you know and I think: what about my sensitivities? I'm offended by the banality of these adverts. Something needs to be done!
Sorry...and...breathe....
