Am I the only one who’s noticed something peculiar (and a little scandaliscious) about Snickers’ new marketing blitz in and around Boston’s neighborhoods? It started out with made-up words like “substantialiscious,” “nougatocity,” “satisfectellent,” and “peanutopolis,” but recently I came across the clearly ill-conceived “hungerectomy.”
It’s clear what they meant, i.e. “ectomy” being the suffix used in medical terminology to refer to “the removal of,” in this case, hunger. But if you take a closer look you might begin to think that maybe they’ve got a horny gay man in their marketing department.
Hung, erect, O my! My O my O my O my. Put that in your mouth. Snickers satisfies? I bet it does!
