- Farm picked broccoli (from a commercial for frozen meals). As compared to what, free range broccoli? Seriously, where else are you going to pick broccoli?
- Check with your doctor before taking prescription X (from dozens of ads for prescription medications). Wouldn't I need my doctor to prescribe the medication in the first place? Maybe this statement is for people who buy their meds on the street.
- Sauce made with real tomatoes (from a commercial for frozen pizza). I agree with this one, I hate the taste of faux tomatoes.
- We pick only the most tender vegetables (from a commercial for frozen vegetables, the vegetables shown are carrots). Should carrots be tender before they're cooked? I like them to be crisp.
- With crisp vegetables (from a magazine ad for frozen meals). Should vegetables be crisp after they've been cooked? I like them to be tender.
- Why mess with morning coffee (from a commercial for an energy drink). Maybe because I like the taste of coffee? If you follow this logic, why mess with eating food when you could just take a vitamin?
- Professional installation (from a carpet company ad). Who else would a carpet company send to install your carpet? Good hearted volunteers? Isn't anyone paid to install carpet, by definition, a professional?
- Made in our kitchens by cooks (from an ad for a fast food restaurant). I'm so relieved that they don't have the janitor preparing my chicken.
- Now I have the confidence to improve my credit score (from a commercial for an online credit reporting service). Confidence, as far as I know, is not a form of legal tender. Ever try using it to pay your bills? It takes money, not confidence, to improve your credit score.
- Call *insert-phone-number-here* (from any number of billboards along the highway). Is there a safe and convenient way to call, write down, or even read a phone number when traveling at 70 mph?
