Whether or not you want to admit it, everyone knows ad host ‘Vince’ of Slap Chop, Shamwow  and now Schticky fame or infamy.

I say the latter because “his” ads for the latter have finally been  sanitized after months of including two painful and corny lines of sexual innuendo.

In-vince-ible?

Without getting graphic, one comment had to do with a cat and the other came after a friend stopped by.

Cute is cute and clever is clever and neither line in the original ad was either. Crude was probably a more apt description, and there’s plenty of that going around these days.

A slap to Milwaukee’s mayor, as happened the other day, was probably a bit much.

A chop to this ad was definitely appropriate, if a bit late.

Taking care of other business, to recommend another site:

The web site http://midlandtradeshow.com/ is clean, professional and user-friendly.
It’s a positive that the company logo and phone number are hard-to-miss in their location at the top of the page. One minor improvement would be to consider bumping up the font size a bit to make both items stand out more.
The photo is acceptable and the copy is useful and error-free. I would consider using a different photo with a person or two in it to bring the picture to life a bit as it is a little “dry” otherwise. Less copy with the most important points about the different aspects of the products is another possibility for a bit of an improvement.

Overall, the site is good to very good and with a few tweaks it could even be excellent.
