I am used to internet ads on the sites I visit often being related to a Google search or a website I was at, or a topic discussed somewhere. You know, if you say… look at a telescope on a vendor site, you are hounded by telescope ads everywhere you go. I get that. I have come to terms with it.
Yesterday I was replying to a post on a blog about of all things, scents. A word I was going to use, and was unsure of how it is spelled, prompted me to type in “po pourri” in a Google search, knowing that my guesstimate of a word I seldom use let alone have need of typing, would be self corrected by Google and a link would probably pop up with the correct spelling.

If you manage to do that, please send a photo, it may be useful for future reference!
My favorite part of that ad is thinking about what the casting call for the actress probably looked like. “Small business seeks attractive 20-something female to sit on toilet for ad campaign concerning how poop ruins relationships.”
Ha! I’m not sure how I would take it, as a potential candidate, when they proclaimed “you are perfect for representing our product!”…Yay!, hey wait a minute…
