Annals of Advertising: TOS Edition

I Was Just informed by a helpful staffer from Google AdSense (provider of the fine advertising products you see in the right-hand sidebar) that it's against their Terms of Service to place text such as "Every time you click an ad, Bunsen gets a supermodel sandwich" above the ad banner. It's since been fixed.

I want to make clear to rmy eaders that the advertisers are not direct sponsors of this site. Those of you who are regular visitors and were witness to the Jesus Ad Fiasco of two weeks ago are probably aware that Jesus is not an explicit sponsor or endorser of I haven't talked to Him in a while, and the last time I did, He asked me to write something in which Pamela Anderson's botched cosmetic surgery results in the placement of her female genitalia on a part of her body where one would normally expect to find a navel. I didn't get around to that until this morning. So, J-man, if You're reading, I hope You liked it. Inspiration comes from the strangest places.

And my readers are now clear on the endorsement situation, so keep the ideas coming.

[And perhaps You have some pull and can get those Google guys to deliver ads with high click payoff rates. TiVo, Jaguars, luxury vacations, what have You.]

About this site

This is the internet home of Mark Lisanti, a Los Angeles writer sometimes known as Bunsen. He is the founding editor of Defamer, a weblog about Hollywood, where he now serves in the nebulous capacity of "editor-at-large."
