When your advertising pop-ups say more than you do

Some blog posts are just funny and when the wrong advertisements pop up, the message gets distorted and things can get absolutely hilarious.

Here’s one today called “Emerging Church Exposed and Defined” that has two advertisements (at least here in Germany) for a body scanner that EXPOSES people and reveals their underwear. It adds a whole new slant to the subject material which was exposing the emerging church’s supposed Biblical weaknesses.

I was reading it because one of the criticisms of the emerging church was that they “dont conceive we crapper undergo Absolute Biblical Truth” and i was wondering if they were using insider language that only a few enlightened people would understand but NOT those who dont have ears to hear. But then I saw the ads and things got interesting. Funny. Not sure if I should be blogging it  . ..  but . . I’m in a festival mood so here is the screenshot of the ‘exposure’:

And if you think that is too revealing, I wont even tell you about the ad that popped up the next time I looked.

SUGGESTION: If you cant control your ads, perhaps its time to remove them.

  • Thanks for this and I like your ‘SUGGESTION’ at the end. I’ve often noticed how a blog’s message gets distorted by ad pop-ups. These can sometimes be funny. Often they can be irritating or potentially offensive. That’s one of several reasons why I don’t have advertising on my blog. Maybe I’m just a control freak.

  • the site is not christian at all, they just sell DVD’s. One of te other ones is about ‘free relaxation session hypnosis’… And the ad I saw is not one I would want on my blog (hunkemöller underwear 70%) but then I just have a simple free wordpress template…
    I wasn’t able to watch much of the video, too boring. So I’ll never know their enlightened exegesis of “dont conceive we crapper undergo Absolute Biblical Truth”
