76 brand of gasoline has a new marketing campaign going on -- Stop "honkaholism" -- about not using your car horn. There is a new billboard on my way to work with the slogan "Give a Hoot. Don't Toot." Several things about this Crack.Me.Up:
1) Does anyone remember the original '70s US Forrest Service mascot, Woodsy Owl, "Give a hoot, don't pollute"? Yeah, an oil company
has just co-opted and bastardized it.
2) When I was a kid, "toot" was a popular euphemism for passing gas. So are they advising me to reduce my noise pollution or air pollution?
