Ridiculous marketing errors that will make you blush

October 31, 2012

How do I spell thee? Let me count the ways… Apparently there are ways to spell words that neither Elizabeth Barrett Browning, nor we, ever knew about until Siri and Auto-fill entered our busy lives. Here are some hilarious bloopers to make you smell. Uh, I mean smile:

You Say Email, I Say Anal

“Email entire pkg with POF to eliminate waste” (Wouldn’t prunes be more effective?)

“Echo friendly graden” (Believe me, nothing you said is worth repeating.)

“7 units under contraption” (Reason # 1 not to build on the San Andreas Fault…)

“Stained grass” (This brings back fond memories of a Sigmi Chi party…)

“Just needs a spit shin” (The last time I spit on my shin was just before I stained the grass…)

No More Body Fluids Please

“Agressivly hamdling ran-off”  (Frankly, dummy, it’s no wonder she ran off…)

“Drug rehap across scream” (I hope you’re planning on enrolling.)

“Really raid house” (Methinks you’ve toked a few roaches already.)

“Submit beast and final for fast response” (Yeah, when I let my buffalo loose in the house, he always gets a fast response…)

Persistant, Aren’t You?

“Pee approved” (Ad for the new Kohler  toilet.)

“Call in vance” (Is Vance a hit man or are you just trying to hook me up?)

Advertise with The American Genius

“Vig house” (What happens if I don’t pay the vig…Vance breaks my knee caps?)

“4 cart garage” (This must be a home in Ireland.)

“Beautiful new pint” (And yet another home in Ireland…)

“Freeway closet” (Another 500 sq’ apartment near the 405 Freeway in L.A. is up for sale, friends.)

Time to Flush Out The Pipes

“Crack filled, waste removed Tuesday” (If you can’t make it ’til Tuesday, I suggest a high colonic.)

That’s it for this week, folks. Remember, Spell Well and Sell!

facebook i want my friends back
Big changes at Facebook - maybe not such a great option... When it comes to free social media, you, as a professional, have quite a few options. None have been more popular than Facebook—until recently, that is. Facebook has recently launched their new promotion options, for both company and individuals’…

I wear several hats: My mink fedora real estate hat belongs to Sotheby’s International Realty on the world famous Sunset Strip. I’M not world famous, but I've garnered a few Top Producer credits along the way. I also wear a coonskin writer's cap with an arrow through it, having written a few novels and screenplays and scored a few awards there, too. (The arrow was from a tasteless critic.) My sequined turban is my thespian hat for my roles on stage, and in film and television, Dahling. You can check me out in all my infamy at LinkedIn,, SherlockOfHomes, IMDB or you can shoot arrows at my head via email. I can take it.
