Worst Offer Ever?

Filed under: — site admin @ 2:48 PM UTC

I wish I’d had my camera with me a week or two ago. A local grocery store had this special offer:

SHRIMP
BUY 1, GET 2
Limit 2

  1. I suspect the limit is on the “buy 1″ part, thus limiting you in effect to buying 2 and getting 4.

    Not sure what the better way to put that would be that wouldn’t be too verbose…

  2. Right out of Confucious–”If names be not correct. . .the people will not know to move hand nor foot.”

    The better way to write the ad is simple: “Limit–Two Offers.”
