Monte Carlo + Redneck Riviera + Drunk 11-Year-Old Driving + Embedded Beer Ad = White Trash Wednesday!


White Trash Wednesday

Reuters has this story from last month:

IAMI (Reuters) - An 11-year-old girl was charged with drunken driving after leading police on a chase at speeds of up to 100 mph that ended when she flipped the car in an Alabama beach town.

A video camera in the police car captured the look of surprise on the officer's face when he approached the wrecked car and got a look at the motorist.

The Mobile Press-Register newspaper said the patrolman saw the Chevrolet Monte Carlo speeding and flashed his lights to signal the driver to stop. Instead, the car sped faster, traveling at up to 100 mph (160 kph) before sideswiping another vehicle and flipping over in the Gulf Coast town of Orange Beach, Alabama, on Tuesday night.

That there's just reg'lar funny (and don't give me no guff. Nobody got hurt - it's funny).

What makes this here thing White Trash Wednesday funny is this screenshot from BBspot:

I think whoever does ad serving for Reuters needs to rethink their algorithms - it's probably not a great idea to put a beer ad in an article that contains the words "drunken driving."

It's White Trash Wednesday! Take the whole tour via the WTW blogroll on my sidebar.



Are you kidding? It generates that much more traffic for them! Remember, even indignant clicks are clicks. :)

OIC! The 'no such thing as bad publicity' paradigm!
