My what a big carafe you have

I’m designing a brochure with the usual insidious aim of trying to separate small business owners from their money and as part of that I was conducting a search for some photos to incorporate into the piece. I spend an inordinate amount of my day searching for just the right imagery. Look at this ridiculous photo that was on the LANDING PAGE of a stock photo house!

Is it my overactive imagination or does that wicker wine carafe look like something other than a carafe? And the placement couldn’t be worse (or better). My favorite part of the photo is the look of astonishment on the face of the woman on he right. She’s probably never seen a carafe quite that big. I’m definitely going to try and work this into the brochure.

  4. So this woman comes home from work to find that her husband has nailed all her sex toys to the wall.”You wally! I said I’d like a ‘Dado Rail’! (Do you have dado rails over there? This joke makes no sense whatsoever if you don’t!) :¬)
