Banned Advert

A poster showing a nervous man alongside the slogan "Take Courage my friend" has been banned for suggesting the beer could boost confidence.
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) said it acknowledged the poster's message was meant to be humorous, but concluded it broke advertising rules.
The ASA upheld three complaints from people who argued the image of the man with a glass of beer clearly implied it would give him enough confidence to tell the woman the dress was not flattering.

"No, of course it doesn't..."

I've completely misunderstood the advert.

Nothing wrong with a bit of meat on a lass. And it it were not for Dutch Courage (never mind Courage bitter), the English races would have become extinct centuries ago.

A woman is standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror. She is not happy with what she sees and says to her husband, 'I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.'

The husband replies, 'Your eyesight's damn near perfect.'

And then the fight started.....

I tried to talk my wife into buying a case of Courage Light for £14.95.
Instead, she bought a jar of cold cream for £7.95.
I told her the beer would make her look better at night than the cold cream.

And then the fight started....

My wife asked me if the dress made her arse look big. I told her not as much as the dress she wore yesterday

And then the fight started.....
