The following are the top three Chevy Nova nominees:
1) The Dairy Association's huge success with the campaign "Got Milk?" prompted them to expand advertising to Mexico. It was soon brought to their attention the Spanish translation read "Are you lactating?"
2) Coors put its slogan, "Turn It Loose," into Spanish, where it was read as "Suffer From Diarrhea." Yeah I can relate to that!
3) Scandinavian vacuum manufacturer Electrolux used the following in an American campaign: "Nothing sucks like an Electrolux." Hmmm...

Speaking of awards, last week, right out of the blue, I received an Awesome Blogger Friend award from a fellow blogger.
ettarose at Sanity on Edge, I guess in a moment of blogger bathos (Oooo...nice alliteration/thank you) picked a couple of folks to pass this on to...
...myself included. This means a lot 'cause she's one helleva lady. For instance she won a custody battle for her grandkids. Kudos for your love.
And she writes this marvellous blog called The Voices where she posts about the situation in Darfur and civil rights issues elsewhere in Africa. Kudos for your passion.
Recently, she was laid off from a job she'd worked at for over 25 years. Kudos for your fortitude.
And, if that weren't enough, she still cranks out a very funny humour blog at Sanity on Edge. Kudos for your sense of humour.
And you must have a great sense of humour, Susan, if you give this award to me. Because, to me, YOU'RE the awesome blogger friend. Cheers...and thanks.
