Let's Adverties The Lies!

So the a to z has begun its run. The cat has decided to give a bit of a theme a run. They will be mainly topics that can get people going. You know I like such a showing. Nothing is off limits at my sea. So for A we tackle advertising and human severe gullibility.

Advertising is the way,
To make lots of pay.
But 90% of it is a lie,
And some may even make you die.

As seen on Dr. Oz!
That should get an applause.
You see such ads everywhere.
Guess what? 95% are a fake affair.

Will make you lose weight fast.
It will be a blast.
Not to mention kill your liver.
But there is no need to shiver.

You will get rich quick.
$5,455.56 an hour if your slick.
Just sign up today.
I guarantee you pay.

Forget what I am saying.
Forget what is even playing.
Just look at that model in the pic.
Don't they just make everything click?

Yeah, you'll look like that.
Just use our product, stat.
Sex sells everything for us.
No muss, no fuss.

Oh and even better for you,
A celebrity endorses it too.
Damn, you are on a roll.
Come and take this truck for a stroll.

Such and such a diva drives it.
It has to be the umm spit.
It will get you all the girls.
It can even do twirls.

Forget the "do not try this at home."
The sexy outcome will still foam.
Believe in what we say.
We want you happy at the end of the day.

You'll look and feel your best.
We beat all the rest.
Who needs fat people showing our stuff.
I think you've heard enough.

Pffft you humans must buy into the nonsense though, as this crap keeps continuing to flow. Sure beats the cat why because there is no magic pill or product that will rain down from the sky. You want something you have to do the work. Some things may be a perk, but they aren't going to go poof and make you look or feel or whatever like what is shown. So just put down your telephone. Save money and give such advertisers some nasty gas. It works well for my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

    HELLO FURRY FRIEND!
    Still going round the bend
    Dreaming about a blue rock trend
    Or finally on the healthy mend?
    Say, what is Hankster The Tankster up to?
    I hear he's found my sniff-sniff grumpy shoe
    That guy is quick as a flash as I crash
    A bit like how I spend my cash
    I said it once and I'll say it once more
    Do you know what I mean

    It's great, can't go wrong

    The dough will come and stay
    Rake that money in

    It's no sin
    You can win
    How about a bit of sex in the mix
    A free ride and some kitty chicks
    Um... that sounds a bit wrong
    Sniff-sniff the blue shoe song
    Celebrities can go to hell
    As their butts sell
    Making me yell
    Mr T says it great
    Now go buy it!
    Don't be late!
    It'll be a discount too
    'Cause you're my friend at my shoe

    Some use weird advertising, like Mt. Dew. It wants you to believe that if you drink it, the Dew will run through your body and cause you to explode with inspiration. I think most people would need a doctor after that...
