Truth in Advertising

Walking by two retail shops on my coffee-run this morning:

A big sign in the Eddie Bauer window announces that an ULTIMATE SALE is going on -- right now! But a look at the fine print states: this is actually a twice-a-year event. Not so ultimate, I guess.

Two doors down, a jeweler has a small sign that reads 'Buy American' plopped among its shiny display of rings and necklaces. When were hordes of diamond mines uncovered in the US? Or did I miss the memo on our annexing of South Africa?
