Citi Thinks Diseases are Comedy Gold

The unintentional comedy of the context ad bots strikes again.

While posting a message to a Myspace support group for sufferers of fibromyalgia and other chronic pain and fatigue disorders, Brian was greeted with the ad at right, which reads, “Chronic Feetiuge. Tired of paying credit card late fees.”

Whether by design or serendipity, Citi offended him. Brian suggests these other slogans Citi could look into for expanding the “Diseases are Funny” campaign:

AIDSAnnual Interest Depression Syndrome
Financial Myalgiathe pain one feels when paying too much for checking
Terminal Cancerthe desire to cancel one’s high-interest credit cards
