@Murgatroid I MEAN... MAYBE SHE'S THE FOURTH GAYEST THING?
God I wish this slideshow was 400 pages long, kinda proud of them.
@Mr. B People care about where to drink in Brooklyn! (I mean, they should!)
@deepomega That's what I'd like to do here. Fortunately all our Jews and marrieds and gays and smokers are too lazy to leave their computers and stop working.

@stuffisthings I really wanted to totally OMG SLIDESHOW this one, just to crack myself up further.
@ARS It totally worked. (We are LOLing.)
@joeclark We don't italicize the titles of TV shows. We italicize the titles of movies and books and publications. This is contradiction to the AP stylebook, which suggests one use quotation marks for "books, computer games, movies, operas, plays, poems, songs,television programs, lectures, speeches and works of art," but insists that one does not use quotes for publications.
They are also wrong.
@Astigmatism Ha, well, that's not a product that's native to us here. There's a different array of these things. You probably are much happier with editorial things, not advertorial--as am I--when a sponsor actually backs an editorial project. Here's to more of that! :)
@brad Haha! Ask a real question, get a real answer.
The truth is, there are ways to do this where it's win-win. Advertising underwriting--in the form of "presenting sponsorship"--in the 1940s and 1950s often worked spectacularly well; it can be done on the web as well.
