TRANSLATIONS OF ADVERTISING LINGO
"A number of different approaches are being tried."
(We are still grasping at straws.)
"Customer satisfaction upon delivery is assured."
(We are so far behind schedule the customer should
be happy just to get it delivered.)
"Test results were extremely gratifying."
(We were so surprised that the stupid thing worked.)
"The entire concept will have to be abandoned."
(The only person who understood the thing, quit.)
"We'll look into it."
(Forget it! We have enough problems for now.)
"Please read and initial."
(Let's spread the responsibility around for the mistakes.)
(Too heavy to lift!)
(Lighter than rugged.)
(When the power switch is off.)
