A chick linked this news story on a forum, and started a discussion about it...to find out if people thought it was funny, or offensive.
Back in my hometown, some people are outraged over this billboard for a local adult novelty shop...
I know it's small, but in case you can't read it, it says, "Stop vegetable abuse." Then, it lists the websites of the adult stores.
Personally, I think it's as tasteful as it's gonna get for an ad for an adult sex shop. I mean...I can think of a helluva lot more offensive images they could choose to sell their products.
It's a CUCUMBER for crying out loud!!
Young kids won't even get it. You can just lie to them, and tell them that the cucumber is sad, because kids don't eat their vegetables anymore. You skirt around the masturbation conversation, the kids are guilted into eating their greens! It's a win/win!
As for teenagers...well, they already know about masturbation whether you'd like to admit it, or not!! I mean, maybe our daughters aren't using cucumbers...but, at least you'll know what's up, if all of a sudden, the cucumbers in the house go missing!
When I was searching for an image for this post, I found that it actually started as a late night television commercial. Mind you, I wouldn't know anything about that...because I don't have television right now!! And I doubt they air it on the one channel we get...because it's that Jesus channel!! And if they DO air it on the Jesus channel...well, then I'll see you in church this Sunday!! Can I get an AMEN?
So, what do you think? Tacky? Tasteful? Offensive? Or, funny as hell?!?
