The visual alone causes you to stop, the copy just stops your brain from breaking.
1921 ad for the Nose-Shaper
I think it’s important for us as advertisers to really understand the message we are delivering. What we are saying, and how we say it, are two completely different things.

Callegari Berville Grey: “Don’t let wood get old”
I am a huge fan of marketing humor and I love blogs/websites dedicated to it. They somehow manage to identify all of the awful, frustrating, and down-right hilarious things that happen in our marketing jobs. When I am having a rough day there’s no better remedy than a good dose of marketing humor. Actually, that’s one of the main reasons why Marketing Shmarketing was started.
Here are some really funny picks I’ve discovered throughout the years (and listed in random order). Topics include search engine optimization, client support, public relations, startups, social media marketing, tv advertising, content marketing, etc. If you know more blogs like these – post a comment below and I’ll add them to the list (or maybe compile an additional list). Disclaimer for those with sensitive souls: some of these blogs include profane language.
