I always think it's funny when Google serves ads based on key words on the page, but you can tell it's done by a computer because the ad is completely opposed to the page you're looking at. I notice it a lot here because I have adblock disabled, but I'm sure it happens other places as well. For example, I could be reading a thread talking about how the Progressive Flo commercials are the biggest dudbombs in the history of advertising...and when I get to the Google Ads, it's an ad for Progressive. For some reason I think that is hilarious. Usually I just scroll past the ads, but those are always good for a chuckle. I wonder what kind of ads will be on this thread.
Commercials are awesome, except the annoying ones.

I've been getting Rent-a-center banner ads since I posted a thread about an awful ad from them a few weeks ago.

Someone needs to let these people know that if we're griping about an ad, it probably doesn't mean we're actually interested in buying the product.
