Do Your Ads Make You Look Stupid? Funny Pic

     I found this ad at the Wetzels Pretzels stand in the Promenade Mall in Temecula today (8 Aug. 2010).  Yeah, some might say, "You're criticizing it!  Why publicize them?!"  I figure, getting some buzz about your product for any reason (other than yucky stuff in food products) is a marketing success. 

     Well, I am not sure whether or not the Wetzels folks did this ad intentionally, because it is so obviously self-contradictory and, uh, stupid:

wetzels pretzels temecula.

Did their ad people name the drink, "Strawberry Forever," and then their legal department added, "For a Limited Time," or what?  What part of "forever" do the Wetzels people not understand.

So, whether they meant it or not, it's funny, and I hope you enjoy it. 

A lesson for real estate agents?  We're putting out a lot of information that has the standard disclaimer, "Information is deemed reliable but is not guaranteed."  That's not totally contradictory of showing our expertise "above," but still seems a cop-out.  I wish we didn't have to add it, but in this day and age when anything happens and someone sues about trivial stuff, we do.  So please see my disclaimer below about being an attorney but not practicing law.  I mean it, you just reading this blog does not make you my law, loan or real estate client. :)
