Nazi Pope Benedict XVI Resigning

We’ve never been great fans of Benetton clothes or for that matter their ‘United Colors of Benetton’ ads.

Until today, that is.

Hey, who can resist the great (un)smooching, Photoshopped pictures below from Benetton’s new “Unhate” ad campaign. ;)

Pope Benedict - Benetton AdA Kiss is Just a Kiss….And When Two Lovers Woo

Where else can you see the Nazi Pope Benedict XVI locking lips with Sheik Ahmed al-Tayeb (imam of the Al Azhar mosque in Egypt) or Obama crushing Hugo Chavez’ lips.

Nazi Pope Benedict’s minions are not amused with the Photoshopped (un)smooching ad and have threatened Benetton with legal action compelling it to withdrew the ads. What a shame!

Of course, Benetton had already milked a lot of publicity from the images by then. ;)

Here’s what the Nazi Pope’s Press secretary Father Federico Lombardi said:

We cannot but express a resolute protest at the entirely unacceptable use of a manipulated image of the Holy Father, used as part of a publicity campaign which has commercial ends.

It is a serious lack of respect for the pope, an affront to the feelings of the faithful and an evident demonstration of how, in the field of advertising, the most elemental rules of respect for others can be broken in order to attract attention by provocation.

The secretariat of state has authorised its lawyers to initiate actions, in Italy and elsewhere, to prevent the circulation, via the mass media and in other ways, of a photomontage used in a Benetton advertising campaign in which the Holy Father appears in a way considered to be harmful, not only to the dignity of the pope and the Catholic church, but also to the sensibility of believers.

Now, now, Benedict, show some humor, will ya?

By the way, Benedict was a member of the student wing of Nazi party, Hitler Youth during his younger days and later served in the Nazi anti-aircraft corps and infantry. No kidding.

Nazi Pope Benedict is also the same idiot who once said that condoms aggravate AIDS.

By the way, what’s our President and the Leader of the Free World doing below?

Is it bye-bye Michelle, coochie-coochie Chavez? ;)

For the second holiday season in a row, American kids 6-12 are lusting for the iPad more than any other product, according to a Nielsen survey.

For the 2011 holiday season, the iPad has increased its appeal with this age-group.

Nearly half (44%) want an iPad this year compared to 31% last year.

The second and third most wanted products were also Apple devices, iPod Touch (30%) and iPhone (27%).

Only 25% of the kids looked forward to a non-iPad tablet, computer or Nintendo 3DS gaming device.

Barring the iPad, all other tablets are faring miserably in the market with few takers.

After a pathetic reception from consumers, HP jettisoned its tablet business and disposed off the remaining inventory in a fire-sale for $99.

Despite a steep starting price of $499, the Apple iPads are selling briskly.

Take a deko at the Nielsen figures below:

What About Older Kids

For kids in the 13+ age group too, the iPad is the most desired product.

The Nielsen study shows 24% of kids in this age group drooling over the iPad this holiday season compared to 18% last year.

Computers and e-readers were salivated over by 18% while both non-iPad tablets and TVs found favor with 17% of the kids 13+.

We’ve played around with most of the major tablets and none of them come anywhere near the iPad in ease of use, finesse and quality.
