I do not click on the ads on my blog. That would be click fraud, and anyone with hands as soft as mine really shouldn't be spending any time in the Big House.
But, I do like to check out what my adbot thinks makes sense. Sometimes, it doesn't:
I'm sure it's a very nice family. But I sort of resent the ad's attempt to look like a personal photo of mine. I dress way better than that. And my hair is better, too. Sometimes.
After my recent (panicked) musings (pleas for help) regarding soda, it's only natural that I'd get some ads targeting other caffeine fiends.
But really, adbot? This?
|Ad reads: "Discover how soda in moderation can be a part of your diet."|
What weird ads have you seen--here or as you peruse the Internets? I have the feeling everybody has a story...
(True: Odd ads aren't limited to my blog. I changed my Facebook status to "single" some months ago, and ever since, Google has been bombarding me with Russian singles ads. And lighting ads, because that's what I do for a living. It's a strange coupling, though, "Hot European Singles Want To Meet You" right next to "30% Off 35W MR16 GU10 Lamps!")
