On the Road Again Tour and Travel

Fake Ad: November 2017

by Jay Forstner

From the December, 2017 issue

We received 148 entries correctly identifying the Fake Ad for On the Road Again Tour and Travel on page 48 of the November issue. The last name of the October winner, Sandy Roth, was disguised (barely) in the Jimmy Buffett reference to "parrot heads."

Longtime Fake Adder Sonia Zawacki won our drawing. "I was delighted to have found the not-too-heady Fake Ad quickly this month," Zawacki wrote. "I'm a 'font freak' and all the cool fonts used in the ad made it stand out. As always, thanks for the fun!"

Jim Pleger's entry was a bit cryptic, but very entertaining. "When my Pa went fishin' my ma would toss out the dead fish heads, but never no parrot's heads cuz we never had no parrots," Pleger wrote. "We had canaries, but no coal mines. And mostly we never had no vacations; though we had to vacate an apartment or two. ... Ahhhh, nostalgia. But no vacations troubles my mind. I wonder if Willie Nelson would appreciate this ad?"

Zawacki is taking her gift certificate to Seva restaurant.

To enter this month's contest, find the fake ad in the December issue and follow the instructions in the box at the bottom of the Back Page. The fake ad always contains the name of last month's winner in some form.     (end of article)
