TBWCYL Day 230 - Paper Boy

Today my task was to look through the newspaper and read all of the ads. Then I was to judge the most truthful one and buy that product. So, sit with me as I read the newspaper. Come on. This is so exciting and you know it.


The Business section of The Dallas Morning News had quite a few ads pushing Small Business loans (don't need), entry into the SMU School of Business (Yeah, like I need another business degree), and something about a low interest rate on a CD (sure, if you have the greatest credit in the world) but I don't think any of these are right.


Lets visit the Sports Section

Tuesday is Pint Nite at Humperdink's Bar and Grill. For $1.99 a pint, you can't go wrong. This one is in the lead.


Ah, the Guide. Now here is a part of the paper littered with ads. Dallas Medical Spa has 9.50 Botox treatments. That doesn't sound right.

There is a 60 day Gut-Buster Boot Camp for only $66.00 from something called Private Workout.

Some stuff about Senior Citizen Living. That right there is a lie. Those are old folks homes no matter how much you clean them up.


Onto the Metro Section. Champion Windows and Siding claims they can save me money on energy bills. Not Likely.

I have never noticed but there were no ads in the Obituaries. Huh?


The Front section has an ad for Advanced Digital aids for $895. Then they try to up sell you with a deal on a 50% off super aid for $1395. That seems dishonest. Taking advantage of deaf people. You should be ashamed...Trinity Hearing Health care. Crap, they have my name.

There is also a replacement windows advertisement that says "From $224". That means there is absolutely no way that you can get them for that much. Liars.

Well, I guess that settles it. I will have to go drinking next Tuesday at Humperdink's. Darn, and I so wanted Botox.

That is all,

Ummm...I think you should go for the Gut-Buster Boot Camp. I'm just sayin'...the pints might contribute to the...gut.

I think it says a lot about the advertising in the Dallas Morning News that the most honest ad in the whole thing was for beer. Sounds like my kind of paper.

Trinity said...

I like GWPTC opinion better than yours, Erin. Just so you know, I lost 4 lbs. So bootcamp isn't in the cards.

Addy's Daddy said...

Neither is keeping those 4 lbs. off.

I will say that I really appreciate how much you are sacrificing for this book. I do know how much you hate having to go drink beer. I commend you, sir.

Erin said...

Good job on the 4 pounds! I think you should reward yourself with beer.

Trinity said...

I am glad Thomas finally sees how dedicated I am.

Carrie said...

Oh, such a sacrifice! lol. Have fun with that one! :)
