Bad Timing--Part 2

A little more than a year ago, in the very recent days following Hurricant Katrina, I posted a blog discussing the terrible timing of a New Orleans-based rice company's advertising promotion.

Well, this is more an example of bad editing than bad timing, I suppose, but consider the unwanted publicity (not to mention brand image) that a British supermarket chain got by paying $$ for this ad printed in The Independentnewspaper right opposite a story of the Amish shooting tragedy in this county.

This story comes from the blogger FishNChimps by way of Adrants.
