Great Advertising?

The Consumerist is a blog that posts articles highlighting poor business practices of companies. Occasionally sensational, it takes the buyers’ side of things, often to extremes. It is worth skimming through if you like reading that sort of thing.

I go through the blog quickly, reading headlines as an RSS feed, using a tool such as Google Reader to find articles that catch my eye. Below is one such post. This post, Great Moments in Commercial History, features several of the tackiest television commercials you’ll find. They’re local, amateurish, and worth a laugh or two. Take a moment or two to jump over there.

Note that I’ve valiantly attempted to avoid the work “consumer”. I hate that word. What is it that buyers consume? How about “customer”, a word that in my mind engenders much more respect.
