Groan. Seeing this billboard ad along the Beltline heading south near M-6 reminds me of another annoying play on words I have recently come across. My daughter has a Strawberry Shortcake book, which I read to her on occasion. There is one aspect to this story that just drives me crazy. Strawberry and all her cake/dessert friends never use the word “very”, instead being cute and all they use “berry.” For example “This is the berry best cake I have eaten.” As a father who wants to teach my daughter how to speak properly, I am not impressed. Just like with this Allen Edwin Homes ad.
Peas of Mind? Was Bretonfield built upon a former pea farm, is that the connection? Perhaps they could have gone the junk food route and had “Piece of Mind” with a house built of pizza slices. Even the artwork for the supposed pea house make it end up looking more like a church or a school than a house. I find this ad berry confusing. What do you all think?
