This morning [profile] miss_emelia  called me up to ask a favor. A co-worker of mine had borrowed a petticoat from her for a costume event, and I was well-positioned to facilitate its return. So the co-worker and I just started an email conversation about the logistics of returning said petticoat.

Of course, our email conversation was taking place via Gmail, which includes automatically targeted advertising based on the content of the message. Imagine my surprise when I see this alongside our conversation:



Well yes, I am a man and yes, the conversation was about ladies undergarments. So technically this is a well-targeted ad. But, ummmmm, no.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha! Oh I love it when I laugh so hard it makes coworkers ask and then I have to explain about the man-bras.

Maybe....maybe they're just for protection from pebbles? Like on your car?

Wow. Laurel actually went with a non-sexual joke on that one. I'm... disconcerted.
