First off, yes, I'm alive and doing much better. Thanks to all of you who actually gave a ...no 2 craps about me. Enough crap about me, I saw this story this morning and couldn't help but be ashamed of those who live in a world of denial about their history. Absolut ran this ad in Mexico and it just happened to outrage a lot of U.S. citizens(notice, I didn't say Americans...think about it). The map is the Mexican territory BEFORE the Spanish-American war circa 1948, by the way. To anyone who is offended by this ad, grow up and get a life. I'll even enclose a coupon so you can get one. If you don't like this map, you're really gonna think the civil war era sucks, especially if you live in the south(here's a hint, they loose).Even the Emancipation Proclamation(which still isn't too popular in many parts of say northern Arkansas) will be a bit of a downer. Look, if you don't like the ad, TURN THE PAGE! More than likely, those who really didn't like this ad are giving the Swedish company want they don't want them to have which is more attention. For what it's worth, I actually like the ad, it makes a statement and does something most ads don't, it makes you think.
Here's your coupon, by all means, spend it all in one place.
