Fake Ad: October 2017

by Jay Forstner

From the November, 2017 issue

We received 136 entries that correctly identified the Fake Ad for the Ann ArBar on page 64 of the October issue.

"Tragically, I am disappointed that I will not be able to regain the health and energy I had in college, because the Ann ArBAR doesn't exist!" wrote Dustin Quandt. Quandt was still sharp enough to spot the name of October's winner, Mark Brantmeyer, hidden in the bar's ingredient list.

"Actually, based on the ingredients, I think I've had this energy bar before," wrote David Karl. "Not sure if it had hive-free honey, though."

Beekeeper and city councilmember Chuck Warpehoski had "never heard of hive-free honey," but "After losing a colony this year I have a honey-free hive." Warpehoski is one of several entrants whose names keep the Fake Ad Czar up at night, along with Baetzel, Romanchik, Sobocinski, and Krzeczkowski.

Cindy Krzeczkowski fanned those fears, writing, "If I win, I will be curious to see how you incorporate my last name into the following month's Fake Ad." Fortunately, Sandy Roth won our drawing. She's taking her gift certificate to Zingerman's Bakehouse.
