Some people need to lighten up.

When we were on safari in South Africa we stayed at Botlierskop.   As I have mentioned before this is without a doubt my kind of camping.

On my end table, next to my king size four poster bed,  was a package of Tylenol.  (Would never happen here, but I digress).  I recently found the packet and wanted to share it with you.

Don't you think that is a brilliant piece of advertising?  I thought it was great.  Apparently there are quite a few who didn't see the humor and Protea Hotels has since pulled it from their hotels.

I need a pill to prevent me from bitch slapping such people.  All together now "Thank God for wine."


  1. that is brilliant :)

  2. That is possibly one of the most awesome things ever. Boo to those that didn't think it was funny and completely clever!!

  3. South African advertising companies win all the prizes in the world, and here is proof why :)

  4. @David ~ I thought so too

    @Brooke ~ Boo indeed

    @Alex ~ agreed

    @Ant ~ maybe it was the feminists that complained?

    @Sprite ~ me too!

  5. Genius. I will be leaving one on my wife's pillow starting tomorrow (and every day after that).

  6. Defiant Marshmallow: "I don't get it."

    Mrs. Marshmallow (in a stage whisper): "Right. And you get it won't until you take me to this place."

    Defiant Marshmallow: "Oh!" (looking around nervously)
    "Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!" That's great!

    Mrs. Marshmallow: "My god, you're stupid! Good looking, but stupid"

    Ok, all kidding aside, this place seriously just went on my list of things to do in life. Really. And I think that is a brilliant bit of marketing. I'll pants the stick-in-the-mud who says otherwise.

  7. I can't believe that there are people out there that are so uptight that they complained about this.

    This is genius!

  8. @dbs ~ let me know how that works out for you

    @DM ~ Maybe I should email this blog to Protea hotels and let them know we support it.

    @Vinny ~ Genius ~ just like you my friend!!

  9. I love that! And if you have no sense of humor, you probably don't have anyone with you anyway so you won't even get the joke.


Comment Love.
