What about Hobby Lobby and Chick-Fil-A showing their cards to **** on the rights of some of the more marginalized members of our society to move some more product? I'd say those are pretty bad. Or on-disc DLC? That one REALLY sucks.

I don't think it's come up in this thread, but I have zero time for Chipotle because of their marketing.

I don't rant about them on Facebook or join in pro/con conversations on forums because then I'm giving them what they crave - publicity. This post is the most you'll get out of me on the brand.

There was one a while back on TV for a shampoo which was touted as "the ONLY product you will ever need". Then, if you ordered, they would send you all the other products in the line. My question is why they made any other products, if the shampoo was the ONLY one a person ever needed.

Of course, that does not top some of the gems from Engrish.com
