When Northstar Ford in Fort McMurray, Alberta got robbed, dealership owner Marty Giles decided to kill two birds with one stone: get the word out about catching the robbers and raise money for charity. So, he made a commercial that aired on radio stations in northern Alberta that had one simple message:

Return the stolen merchandise, and you'll get off scot free. Refuse to return the stolen merchandise, and I'll offer a 10,000 dollar reward to anyone who turns you in, plus I'll make a 10,000 dollar donation to the charity of the RCMP's choice. Money goes to a good cause, and you suckers get served in the process. Win-win!

Nothing like a little cash to test the honor among thieves. Your buddies or accomplices wouldn't sell you out for 10 grand!

... would they?

On September 26, Barilla CEO Guido Barilla said that he "would never feature a homosexual family in any of his company's advertisements." Rival pasta company Bertolli was quick to dump tolerance sauce all over Barilla's big bowl of bigotoni that it served up on Thursday. In other news, I am so sorry for that metaphor.
