Truth in Advertizing...

I was driving home from work today and I was stuck behind a large truck going through the East River tunnel heading north on I-77. That in itself isn't unusual, but I was struck by what was written on the back doors below the company name. I won't mention the company, but it was a delivery truck for a local casket company. The company name was on the top and painted in a very nice script below were the words; "Please drive carefully..."

That got me thinking. Let's be serious here. If I owned the company it would say; "Please drive with reckless abandon, drink heavily beforehand and don't wear your seatbelt, we need the business!"

Got have truth in advertizing!
