Tasteless but hysterical

When I was in Germany a few years ago, we saw posters for a local equivalent of a Slim Jim. The text was extremely un-PC, but since it was all in English, I guess it got by the authorities, local sensibilities, etc. Of course, since the average German speaks better English than your average American teenager, most people get the jokes. I am thrilled to see that the posters are still on the company's website:

Tasteless indeed.
However, PC has not gone so far in Germany as in the US.
From my German perspective I see nothing "authorities, local sensibilities" should legitimately take interest in.

Heheh, I don't see anything worth getting upset about from my 'Merkin perspective either, but you would be amazed at the firrestorm that stuff would undoubtedly unleash if it were used as advertising material here.

Thanks for the link! I sent an e-card to my friend who is currently working in Germany.
