More fun with line breaks

Since everyone's mind is numb from the prior "why did they break the sentence here?" post, I thought I'd mention I just now saw another funny one:

Dole Remodels Random
House

How funny, I thought. A home improvement show where a team just bursts in on some unassuming people and remodels their home. I'd watch that! Can you imagine the reactions of the homeowners? Talk about a dramatic reveal. Of course, it should have read:

Dole Remodels
Random House

Being an article about publishing. Nowhere near as fun as my guerrilla home improvement show.

LOL, I love those sentence breaks. The advertising that I love is when a word is spelled incorrectly and I know they've spent a fortune on the banner/billboard/whatever.

There was a huge banner across the main shopping mall in town a few years ago that was advertising a huge 'jewlery' exhibition. I laughed so much and I doubt many other people even noticed.

I also saw a sign on the fence of a construction company's depot that said 'Trespassers will be prostituted'.

I'd think twice about cutting through that construction site!!!

You really seized on what's bugging me about this. They're paying someone to do it. Probably a lot of money! Where's the quality control?

OMG my other half (who loves those shows) and I would totally watch random house remodelling! Love your new reality show idea. ;-)

I used to watch a show called 'Changing Rooms' where friends would swap houses for a week and decorate a room in the other house as to how they think their friends would like it to be. They always had a team of decorators and tradesmen to help. Sometimes the reactions were hilarious and often they absolutely hated what was done.

I always felt so bad when someone did a hideous job on their neighbor's room. It always seemed like the designers did all the work (on the US version anyway) and basically the only thing the contestants had was the power of veto if the designers wanted to do something really craptastic.

Re: Hehehe!
I'd like to come home and find MY house randomly remodeled. Anything is better than this!
