A local Pizza eatery has come up with a new slogan which is quite crass. The place has never been fancy or anything but I feel that their new slogan is very demeaning. They all have shirts on that say, so and so Pizza-giving oral pleasure since 197*". There was a young college student working the counter. I asked her if she felt uncomfortable? In typical dingbat fashion, she responds, "um like no it's not to be taken that way." "It's just a play on words." I smiled and nodded but I ws thinking to myself, "what a young dumb bimbo."

I wouldn't be so quick to call her names. She is a kid, they don't take things as literally as more mature adults do.My daughter is in college and sometimes I have to point out things like that to her. I do think she would be grossly offended and refuse to put such a t-shirt on. One can hope, anyway. I would of course not wear it nor would I want a pizza from there. I would probobly let the owner know exactly how put-off I was by the slogan and give him"food for thought". Maybe it was a dumb impulse?

Bad advertising in any case - is good advertising. Got your attention enough to tell us about it, didn't it? The owner accomplished what he set out to do. Doesn't sound like impulse to me.

"Oral pleasure" is just that - oral pleasure. Some people smoke cigarettes for oral pleasure. Some people love the taste of things. Some people suck on Jolly Ranchers or have to chew gum to satisfy their oral craving/fixation. Does not mean anything sexual unless your mind is in the gutter or looking for ways for it to be.

And c'mon, it's a pizza place - put 2+2 together.

No reason to start calling minors "dumb bimbos" either. She works the counter - she's not dancing on one.
