Another wacko banner ad

My favorite wacko ad appeared on Orly Taitz’s web site: it was an ad for Barack Obama, saying click here for the truth about Obama’s birth certificate.

However, this one I found at WorldNetDaily today has a nice sense of irony

Banner ad "Stop the Koch Brothers"

    It’s almost like they’re for sale or something.

    the KOCH DEALERS are a metastasizing cancer – for YEARS, with the help of flat earther inhofe, they delayed the listing of KNOWN CARCINOGENS like formaldehyde

    koch is inhofe’s NUMBER ONE DONOR

    donna: inhofe

    Inhofe, another regressive curse from the fine denizens of Okieland.

    The Taliban takes over Afghanistan, and Al Qaeda uses it for launchpad for blowing stuff up. US eventually invades Afghanistan.

    The Reds take over Okieland, and various corporate interests use it a launchpad for burning the world down. I do not believe the US will invade Okieland, or allow any other foreign power to do so.

    I call for a homegrown, grassroots, leftwing invasion of Okieland! Power to the people!
    Crank up your Woody in your woody and come on down. All we need is 500K new voters. Maybe we can have a replay of Bleeding Kansas, Reds vs. Blues.

    Anita Bryant is from Oklahoma, and that explains everything. (Sorry)

    True story: This Jewish boy from New York, with two degrees (that’s me), decided one day he wanted to drive a tractor-trailer for a living. Everyone in my family thought I had lost my mind.

    Anyway, after going to a community college and passing my road test, I was hired by CRST. I was sent to a pancake syrup plant in Oklahoma City. While waiting for the trailer to be loaded, I went to a saleman’s booth to call my dispatcher. On the shelf next to the desk were bottles of Aunt Jemima, Log Cabin, every house brand, and a generic. I asked the foreman what were the differences. He said they were all the same, except the generic, which had 10% more water. Once loaded, I headed for Baltimore.

    I stopped at an interstate rest area. As I walked from the truck to the restaurant, a woman in her 20s got out of her car, wearing only lingerie. The next best thing about Oklahoma, is that one week after I left, a tornado hit where I had been parked, and big rigs were lying on their side.

    I begin to suspect that misha doesn’t like Ms. Bryant. 😉

    What year was the tornado? 1999? or farther back?

    1989.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but the first Soundblaster PCI card I bought, had its corporate headquarters listed in Norman, IIRC. I know it’s in Tornado Alley.

    Anita Bryant and Yakov Smirnoff both owned theaters in Branson, at one time. I always wonder how they got along. Smirnoff is like me, secular and non-observant. Bryant’s morality crusade almost wrecked her career.

    She had a career?

    This is the downfall of people who want to monetize their web sites by providing ad space — creative advertisers can tie their adds to key words that will tend to make them pop up on sites where those key words are likely to show up.

    Something to seriously consider before giving over a web site to advertisers.

    Norman is definitely tornado alley …. site of OU, one of the top meteorology programs in the world. We have plenty of tornadoes every year, but there was a spectacular one in 1999 that literally followed I-44, the router you likely took back to civilization. It thoughtfully did donuts in the parking lot of a travel center in Stroud, wiping out that local economy in less than 60 seconds!

    At my last position, at a digital publisher, one of the gimmicks they tried to sell was the placement of banner ads onto the pages of the publications. Finally someone bought it. So then they actually had to code it. It was hideous, and worked about as well as it does for WND. On launch, the hunting mag had like 90 placements …. all with the same ad! LOL!

    Or it’s just a anti-gay agenda ad with a really bad typo.

    I applaud WND’s continuing concern for the environment. Their efforts to clear the air over Texas stadium … their unilateral renunciation of print media, saving like, a dozen trees by limiting their publishing efforts to ezines … now stepping up to the plate on behalf of the EPA! Wow! Imagine a reinvigorated EPA with Chuck Norris at the tip of the enforcement spear!
