Manic Monday Blogarrhea - The Marketing Edition

I am of the opinion (and I'm not naming any names...) that if you are a retailer that is moving to sell items to women and hopefully make them feel beautiful rather than like, say, a cow or some other such animal, you may want to avoid using the word "barn" in the name of your store.

To that end, stores that cater to mothers and fathers who are advertising their sales, may want to refrain from using the word "blowout" in their declaration of great savings. To a parent, specifically of babies, "blowout" has a totally different meaning and it does not conjure up a feeling of excitement.

There is an actual restaurant called Pink Taco. I don't want to eat at Pink Taco. If I have to explain why that is to you, then you are a classy person. That is all you need to know.

Can anyone help me figure out what this ad is for? Let me fill in the blanks: It was found in the ladies room on a stall door. The text says, "Deer Run Golf Club. Enjoy the cruise." No website, no phone number, nothing. I don't get it. What am I missing? What is Deer Run Golf Club? What is this cruise I am supposed to enjoy? Is there a number I should call? A website? What???


  1. I know! I never understood the Dress Barn name. So bizarre. And the blowout reference - so true!!!

  2. Amen on Dress Barn. Speaking of Tacos...someone found my blog by searching for "fuzzy taco". I'm not sure why I popped up, but I suppose it's good to know.


Comments are cool, being mean is not, so please... just don't do it. Hey, thanks!
