Who the fuck are you to talk about valuable skills Spank-me?

You are a pathetic racist who should have been banned by now. Ivan?

Doin' it for the points

Interesting idea but for years and years and years Stouffer's has differentiated itself from other frozen food packagers as a premium meal. This is completely counter-strategy for them.

Should have done your research.

But consider that their strategy might not be exactly right. It is a frozen block of food after all.

A good point, though if they were intending to reposition their consumer from parents on the go and busy urbanites to college dorm rooms, this creative would likely have may put the product into shock.

If repositioning was this students actual objective, I personally don't think that he choose right concept to accomplish it.

An idea portraying college students as being as finicky as high end connoisseurs would have been a better transition campaign. I still think this approach was misguided and uninformed.

"Sure, cooking is a valuable skill. So /ARE/ needlepoint and crocheting."

Simple grammar rules go a long way. Try this: http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Aegean/6354/grammar.html

Sorry wgeddes, but in this case the grammar /IS/ correct.

'Cooking IS a valuable skill. So is needlepoint and crocheting'.

If it had said 'cooking and cleaning are valuable skills'. Then you would say 'So are needlepoint and crocheting'.

It's dependent on what the first part of the phrase talks about. It's basically a shortened version of 'So is needlepoint and so is crocheting'.

you're right. It wouldn't make sense to say, "Cooking IS a valuable skill. So ARE needlepoint and crocheting."

"So ARE needlepoint and crocheting." (as in: Tom is a smart kid. So are Dick and Harry.)
wgeddes is correct.
What is this? Fuckin' remedial English? How appropriate it's summertime!

Hey Wgeddes, I appreciate the fact that you pointed that one out.I think everyone including me who saw it should have.Also checked the link and I think it's quite handy for someone like me who gets confused all the time with these things.

As far as the ad goes; I think it's sad. Literally.

Hope I used the semicolon right there.

Wow. There is some serious negativity going around here. Who has obvious problems? Spanky. And a few others. Spanky, get thee to a counselor. Do it. People who feel good about themselves don't act that way towards other people.

Keep criticism constructive. Always.

Ivan, is it that you're scared of Spank-me or feel that he's contributing, but if you could just quickly tell me why he's still allowed on here? Or provide a muzzle for the rabid dog . Vile, spiteful human being that he/she is.

Doin' it for the points
