How the %*#$ would you know?!

in Infertility

A major airline just sent me an email, with this in the subject line:

“You can still make a child”

What!?

I open it for the full headline:

“You can still make a child’s spirits soar.”
.
.
.
Soaring spirits. Ain’t happening.

(Well, I am chuckling a little at the absurdity.)

I got that email too and almost dropped my blackberry as I glanced at it! Probaby written by some uber-fertile who obviously has no clue.

The advertising companies MUST scrutinize these things to make sure what goes out reflects well on their product.They failed in this one.Sorry the spirits aren’t soaring today…

How crappy.They should invent a sideswipe filter, much like a spam filter but it would filter words related to painful topics. Hmmmmm . . .

Oooh, I like Beagle’s idea. Where you could program your own words for the filter.
