    Advertising run amok - there's an ad on my fortune cookie!!!

    I recently had some chinese food from down the street and when I got home, I popped open the fortune cookie. After reading my crappy fortune, I noticed that the lottery numbers were on the front as well. I wondered why they moved the numbers to the other side, so I flipped it over and found an ad selling a screenplay pitching company, as well as a URL for the company that sold them the ad. I found this terribly funny and absurd, but apparently this is some national company that is doing this in a bunch of cities across the company.

    What next, stamping advertisements on fruit? Oh wait, we already have that. Advertising has truly run amok - the average American sees approximately 117 ads a day now - and it strikes me that the more ridiculous they get with this advertising, the more I treat it like gum on my shoe: I don't care what brand it is, I just want it away.
