Could've Been A Good Boys Band

Giant Microbes' Health Dolls. Featuring The Flu, Sore Throat, The Stomach Ache, and The Common Cold.

Why a boys band? Because they're cute (to some people). They can't sing. And too much exposure makes you sick.

Still at the same site, this product deserves a Nobel prize for being able to combine "Ebola" and "Love" in the same description.


The company called Perdue Chickens made a fatal error during advertising their franchise in Spain. Their english slogan "It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken" was translated too literally. So instead, the Spanish version said, "It takes a sexually excited man to make a chick sensual."

Frank Perdue wasn't the only one having that problem. In Chinese, Colonel Sander's Kentucky Fried Chicken's slogan "Finger Lickin' Good" came out as "eat your fingers off."

On a side note, "It takes a sexually excited man to eat your fingers off" may be a successful slogan for selling chickens in Indonesia. Because
1) It contains the word "sex." And,
2) It has no meaning.
