You're Adink

Someone in marketing needs to be fired.

Let me explain.

The other day, my wife handed me an advertising flyer from our newspaper.

Wife: "Tell me how you read this."

I looked at the flyer.

It was full over advertisements for local companies.

But...

...At the bottom, was the name of the company who created the flyer:


Adinkvillage.com

Me: "Does that say, 'A Dink Village?'"

Yes.

This flyer was brought to you by:

A Dink Village.

Aside from probably being Paris Hilton's favorite vacation spot, I cannot imagine what A Dink Village is.

Is it this:


Or maybe this?


Yeah, I stuck that stupid douche canoe Barry in there.

He should feel privileged that I still think about his fat ass once in a while.

Of course, I'm picturing him in a village full of dinks, but whatever.

Curious as to what exactly A Dink Village is, I decided to go to the website.

Oh.

Ad Ink Village.

That makes more sense.

Still, though - whichever dipshit won the 'Name the Company' contest needs to be fired immediately.

Maybe they can go work for Acocktown.com.

I'll shit if there's a website for that.


*********************
ALSO:

I've created an audition tape to try and have my VERY OWN TALK SHOW!!

This is not a drill.

Please check it out and vote for me. That would be awesome.

Then what would be awesome is if you spread the word and got me even more votes.

Then I get rich and we're all happy. And by 'we're all happy' I mean "I am." I see this as a win.

How about Pen Island.com as penisland.com?

I think THAT is a super duper name for my employer.

I've been referring to it as cock-henge (due to the fact that it is a colossal stone phallus) but adinkvillage has its merits as well. I wonder if it is trademarked in Canada...

I didnt even read this yet but the title automatically makes it extremely hilarious. Good on you.

Dorn said...

I followed your douche canoe link and O.....M.....G!!!!! Seriously. Just. Jacked. Up. Is he still a coworker?

Jen said...

I just returned from your Barry story and I wish you would put some kind of warning on your posts.

"Don't read before breakfast or even thinking about eating" would be helpful.

Eww.

I don't even remember what this post was about.

Too funny.....Someone thought it looked clever like that!! Sort of like the "Sandy Balls Resort" Which is a real place so you can come home to Sandy Balls!! Woo hooo!! I don't have balls but that does sound uncomfortable...

Eva Gallant said...

Great dink photos! Thanks for the laugh!

I clicked on that canoe link and read about your co-worker- from the way you described him he sounds like he might have Aspergers Syndrome- a high functioning form of autism...

the callouses/fingernail thing- still gross...ewwwww...
but he may have a legitimate reason...doesn't make him any less weird- just sayin...

A Vapid Blonde said...

Totally sounds like my kind of town...hee hee.

Except for whats his name, A-rod.
EW.

In 70's Nam a 'dink' was vc, Charlie, Charles, Victor Charles or zipperhead. They were all the same.

I thought it was a village for DINKS - you know "Double Income No Kids" like Dell Web is for old people.

Huh.

OMG. When I read it, I thought it said, "A Dink Village?" too.

I used to work cooperatively (in my role as a PC Tech) with Add-Ink Printer Services here in Oz, thank god they hyphenated the URL too.
