I don't know if the coupon section of a Sunday paper is universal or not but these two ads were in The State newspaper which is published in South Carolina. I really can't make up my mind as to which offends or disagrees with me more.....
The first one is an ad for Jack Daniels where you can save up to $20. $5 off of 2 bottles, $10 off of 3 bottles and $20 off of 4 bottles. I disagree with the advertisment of alcohol. I think the tv commercials, ad slicks, billboards and the like, glamourize alcohol use. How about a real ad featuring someone heaving over the toilet, popping aspirin with a pounding headache the next day? Alcohol is much more dangerous than cigarettes, and yet those ads are banned. (Right?)
The second ad is for Farm Rich Mozzerella sticks. There is a little girl of about three wearing a cute green outfit screaming her head off. The caption says: Kids. Can't return 'em, might as well feed 'em.

I noticed the Jack Daniels one but not the Mozzarellasticks. Here is my take on it- If I remember correctly, your husband died because of alcohol. For that I am sorry, and I hope I don't offend you. Not everyone has an alcohol addiction though. Most people know when to stop. My husband loves beer and certain types of liquor. It is his way of winding down after a hard day's work. We only buy liquor once a year, around Christmas, and I actually clipped the Jack Daniel's coupon out because I planned on buying him 2 bottles like I do every year. So, I can see why you may take offense to it, but others won't. As far as the Mozzarella coupon, I think they were trying to be funny but missed the mark on it.

Cigarettes kill more people than alcohol. Most people enjoy alcohol responsibly. Buying a bottle of liquor or wine is a common easy Christmas gift, so many people do buy in bulk this time of year. The mozzerella stick one is just trying to be funny.
