I used to have to look at these ads all the time when I caught a tram or train to work. They are not just dumb but show the failings of our public transport system over the last 15 or so years.

I had no idea that pooh could be used in so many dishes! Every recipe is low in fat although they all taste like crap.

I am very immature.
