What are you doing to me, SparkRecipes

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Picture this.

Student. Stressful week. She thinks, "Dang, it would be easy to make Kraft Mac&Cheese. Oh crap, no. Eat something healthy!"

So she goes on SparkRecipes looking for some inspiration.

Much to her dismay, however, in the ad space on her SparkRecipes page was a huge cheeseburger. Nay, a huge double cheeseburger with some kind of creamy sauce and fries.

The girl was so horrified. "Why would they put that there? To tease me? Well, that's a little rude"

So she clicked a link. When that page loaded, she was horrified to discover that in the ad space there was now a a DOUBLE order of french fries with a plethora of sauces to choose from!

Frustrated, she turned to her blog.

(Lol, mostly I just think it's really ironic to put coupons for cheeseburgers and fries on a weight loss site!)

    To clarify:

    I'm joking, I understand Spark has to run ads to keep the site free, etc.

    I just thought it was super ironic.

    Oh gosh, that's awful! I haven't seen any food ads, mostly sports drinks and an ad for invisalign.. the internet is telling me I need braces!

    Seriously though, Kudos on avoiding the boxed food! Laugh in the face of that cheeseburger next time and say, "NO, cheeseburger! You don't DESERVE me!"

    That might be a little dramatic, but hey. It doesn't! ;)

    Sparks needs free sponsors to keep being free.. Run it past the help forums if it is a problem.. Sometimes they miss stuff, different ads annoy different people..
    I used to get Concerta splashed all over my screen- sure I have adhd kids- both of them respond badly to this mind altering drug- but I say live and let live..
    To get this drug I have to take my kids to the mental hospital- sparks forgets different rules from country to country.. Sparks also allows people to talk about hcg and other hormones.. If I sent efter half the stuff in the states I would have customs police on my doorstep here in denmark lol..
    Concentra is hospital strength speed..
