    Error in judgment for sure. I can just hear the kids in the back seat: “Mommy, what’s a liquid panty?”

    The only thing I can think of as why this might be a fail is that it says “panty” instead of “panties”… sort of like how “pants” is always plural, no one says they have to buy a new pant. Maybe that’s it??

    1. This is fake.
    2. It’s not really an English fail, anyway.

    It’s the fact that it’s not appropriate for public display that fails…Hence “Appropriateness Fail” right on the picture!

    It also has a question mark; as if the poster is trying to make you decide if you agree with the tag.

    Hello Anonymous 05/20 @ 7:55am,

    Actually, your comment is the only English fail here. Appropriateness is by definition a matter of opinion, not fact.

    I agree with the others here; this picture does not fit with the rest of the ones here, since there are no actual English mistakes. Advertisements with references considered inappropriate by some would need a blog of their own…and one much bigger than this one.

    Cheers,

    @Anonymous. It was targeted on “The Gruen Effect” on the Australian ABC, it most certainly is real.

    While the booze ad is certainly controversial, it’s more interesting that the liquid in the glass looks like OJ, not Southern Comfort.
