I saw this alarming ad on the bus the other day:
I was frightened. I read that sign as “And you thought two hours at the gym was good for your heart.” Emphasis on the “thought.” I guess what they meant to say was “And you thought two hours at the gym was good for your heart.” Emphasis on the “gym.” See, you should spend more time helping children and less time staying healthy, you selfish jerk!
A little inside baseball; in HTML, if a person wants italic text they use the <em> tag, which is short for emphasis. This is because italic text is universal speak for “read this like it means something!” Please use this information responsibly and everything will be alright.
I know, this is a picky thing to be upset with, but they got me talking about their stupid ad. Congratulations to them, it’s going viral (as long as you all press the “share” buttons below).
