Is it all over my face?

So I was minding my own business searching around on Yahoo! news to get the latest on a certain B.S. who has clearly lost her mind (well, I guess that means I was minding someone else's business) and this horribly inappropriate banner just LEAPS off the page at me.

What what now?

This of course reminded me that I was at one time collecting print ads in which whitish substances are smeared haphazardly across peoples' faces, usually children's faces honestly, because over the last couple of years there have been just waaay too many ads with that going on, and I was planning on putting them up online and whatnot but of course, the laziness set in. Also, it's totally vile. I mean, all those ranch dressing ads alone, come on people, how stupid do we look to you? Pretty stupid I guess, because there's that one with the little Asian kid in the cowboy hat and not only does he have ranch dressing smeared all over his face, but he is also holding a CARROT. Yes.

At least this one is a bit more "adult" which is almost refreshing in the canon of Ads Featuring Models Smeared With Ejaculate Substitutes. It reminded me of this one, which I'd of course been saving lo these many years.

The model's eyeline is the key here, I think. What's it an ad for? Al Italia Airlines. Of course! Ooh, fly me.
