Dear Santa!

Dear Santa,

Would it be too much to ask if you could toss some lumps of coal down the chimneys of a few mansions in Michigan?  

Copy reads:

You probably thought it was smart to buy a foreign import of superior quality, with better mileage and resale value. Maybe you even thought that years of market share loss might prod up into rethinking our process and redesigning our products with better quality in mind. But you forgot one thing: We spend a shitload of money on lobbyist. So now you’re out $25 billion, plus the cost of your Subaru. Maybe next time you”ll buy American like a real man. Either way, we’re cool.

Below the three logos:

We’re the Big Three. We Don’t Need to Compete.™
I think I would be able to laugh a little harder at this Ad spoof if it wasn't true!

A friend sent me this ad via email.  I'm not sure who created it.

THAT was so right up my mind path!

Coal in the mansions of in Michigan... and their other homes in Florida, Hawaii, Costa Rica, the French Riviera... those people don't just stick to one house.. they have to have everything in multiples.

Great post.

Great Post! They were living it up thinking the gravy train would keep on rolling through, and now they want a bailout because Americans are tightening their belts! Jeesh.

i just don't know where all this money is supposed to come from!?!

Julie said...

Yeah--
I wish the government would quit bailing us out all the time and let the economy fix itself. All we are doing is waisting money, trying to help out these companies who made stupid choices... well stupid choices eventually catch up to you... or us in this case..
oh well, not to much we can do.

THIS was seriously brilliant. I second that coal request! :)

THAT is funny. Sadly, the joke is on the American people. Hey if you can, will you forward that email to me? I know a few people who would get a kick out of it.

gingela5 said...

That is hilarious--and SO true! Don't even get me started on the bailout!

Ronnica said...

You're right...it would be funnier if it wasn't quite so true!

Candy said...

NO seriously.

there is a little TRUth in every joke......

Cheryl Lage said...

HYS-TERICAL! Will HAVE to show my husband (who's in advertising...he'll LOVE it!)

J Cosmo Newbery said...

I laugh. I cry. It hurts either way.

Jen said...

Ok, that is sorta fun but I am a Michigander so I will take it with a grain of salt. ;)
