Grants for Teachers sidebar ads crack me up.

7 12 2012

I admit it. I’m a Facebook user. And with that comes a lot of invasive advertising where they scan your personal information and attempt to match your interests with appropriate advertising.

Often with hilarious results.

Recently, my sidebar was hit with a couple of advertisements for “grants for teachers,” both featuring images of people that I can say with 99% certainty are not actual teachers.

Take this one for example. I’m fairly certain this chick, who looks a bit on the youngish side (she looks kind of like my friend Laura at age 19), is about to assault the photographer. And who can blame her? I believe she’s in the middle of saying, “you’d better not sell this picture to someone who will use it in a Facebook sidebar ad!”

And then there’s this super villain. He looks like an older version of Bryan Cranston from ‘Breaking Bad.’ If he shaved off the goatee, he could probably utter, “To me, my X-Men!” and convince someone that he works in education teaching “gifted youngsters.” As of now, he might be up for the bad-guy role in the next ‘Die Hard‘ movie.

As ridiculous as these ads are, I’m hoping for more. They’re highly entertaining!
