My boss leaves her copy of The Publican on the newspaper pile for the customers to leaf through once she's read it. Last night there was much hilarity over the adverts for this. If you'd like to count the misogyny fails in the advert, do feel free. Even the unreconstructed Yorkshiremen at work spotted and laughed at lots of them. Do it fast, though. I expect Iron Press to not last very long as a product.

Me, personally, I'd rather have a drink for Real Women, like Sarah Hughes.

ZoneAlarm gave me a little pop-up saying "This site is suspicious. Leave now."

Says it all really.

If you liked that, you'll love this: http://bit.ly/dtySM5 I can't quite work out whether it's misogyny or mysandry. Part of me suspects they've managed both...

The two often run in the same circles, unsurprisingly.

I love how all the shit marketed to men is greasier, saltier, sugarier and generally going-to-give-you-a-heart-attack-ier than the shit marketed to women.

It's like, "Hey dudes, prove your macho-ness by dying 10 years earlier of a massive heart attack!"

I don't get it. :\

At the risk of marking myself out as a misogynist (although I'm talking it in the dubious context of the advert, right), I was very amused that it ended with the words:

"Iron Press comes in Lime and Apple & Lemon flavours"

Surely it's meant to be humourous. Surely?

If not, the fail is epic. I mean, what's "manly" about drinking a soft drink that looks like a beer? Why not just drink a beer?
