jihadvertising?

i keep seeing this ad for tictac candies:



am i the only one who finds the suicide bomber clown at the end a little unnerving? all the nice natural things like the bunny and the [extinct] woolly mammoth and the fruit get devoured by a trying-to-appear-nonthreatening-but-obviously-psychotic clown who then blows himself up. congratulations, tictac, i think this ad has landed you on about a dozen watch lists.

so i tried writing something about just a part of it: the media coverage or the entertainment industry or the politicians or …

highlighters are an even trickier lot, since many of the more brilliant ones have a tendency to e…
