Piss on the Wall

I love crappy advertising. I mean love, love, love it. Almost as much as I love Sharpies. Almost.

So it was with great joy that I introduce you to Petey P. Cup, the new spokesthing for HealthPartners. I'm not making this up. It's even in a real paper and not just on Facebook.

Now I've never seen a 6 foot, 11 inch pee cup in real life. Only in that nightmare I had before my prostate exam. But I don't think I'm going to be able to fill that up. Maybe one time after I drank all that orange soda at the fair.

Mr. Cup is part of a new advertising campaign that is going to be the biggest thing to hit the Twin Cities since Alan Page.

As part of the campaign, there are giant pee cups being left around the cities.

Who wants to make a bet that some drunk is eventually going to really try to use one of these? Hope it's only number one and he's not trying to bust a grumpy. Okay, how about odds that he plays for the Vikings?

But probably the most important thing is ladies, he's single. Hope you like the smell of vinegar.

I hear Petey is pretty laid back. He just goes with the flow.

Unless you piss him off!

He looks a bit jaundiced.

Well, even if some drunk "busts a grumpy" (hilarious) in him, he looks like he'd be okay with it. You know, he's a cup-is-half-full kind of mascot.
