Magic bullet humor = magically not funny or tasteful:

JFK-Assassination-Toast-ArtI’m no marketing genius, but why a French company would run such a distinctly American ad doesn’t really make much sense to me in the first place.  If they were going for edgy and American, they should have done something Travon/Zimmerman related to really piss people off.  Sure people will still get upset and offended by John F. Kennedy assassination humor, but it’s guaranteed not to cause nearly as much of a stir as something controversially fresh no matter what country you live in.

Pictured left is some JFK assassination toast FAIL art I blogged about a while back… as you can see he was hit with the entire cartridge. *face palm*

Thoughts?

By calling attention to ‘a well regulated militia’, the ‘security’ of the nation, and the right of each citizen ‘to keep and bear arms’, our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason, I believe the Second Amendment will always be important.”

– John F. Kennedy, April 1960

Hell will freeze over before we would ever see Obama in a photo of comparable awesomeness.
