Campaign For Our Children

In 2005, Baltimore-based Campaign for Our Children hit America with a pro-marriage advertising campaign that shocked millions. The idea behind it all was to promote abstinence in adolescents by promoting marriage as something positive for kids to look forward to, something that works.

These days, CFOC’s ads have evolved. Their most recent campaign was the “VIRGIN: Teach your kids it’s not a dirty word” campaign. But this, too, has slumped into a few stray, dilapidated billboards that have lasted until 2009.

Two suicides of young boys in the states have made the issue of anti-gay and sexual bullying among kids the question of the day, which makes me wonder, what did all of these ad campaigns really accomplish in the past three years? It’s art, put to the test, folks: Functional, or self-serving? Is it getting a passing grade?

    So not really on the same topic as your post, but I found this today and I just can’t resist sharing. Mrs. Agathe’s dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told him, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you the check. Oh, and by the way…don’t worry about my Doberman. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT under ANY circumstances talk to my parrot!” When the repairman arrived at Mrs. Agathe’s apartment the next day, he discovered the biggest and meanest looking Doberman he had ever seen. But just as she had said, the dog simply laid there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the whole time the parrot drove him nuts with his incessant cursing, yelling and name-calling. Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!” To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”
