How Did This Pass Mustard?

Loyal MZone reader LM sent us the following ad for John Morrell smoked sausages featuring 2002 Heisman Trophy winner and current Cincinnati Bengal quarterback Carson Palmer.

Now I know what everyone's saying: "Not that there's anything wrong with it." And I agree. But seriously, how does his agent or publicist - or Palmer himself - let this one get published? Even as a joke, this makes all those pictures of Brady Quinn look like Sean Connery, circa 1964.

Now I know why Palmer's knee went out so easy when the Steeler's von Oelhoffen brushed him in that playoff game 2 seasons ago.... his knees were already sore!

I can't believe it's NOT Brady Quinn in that ad.

Even gayer than the "Ball Park Franks--They're girthier!" ad campaign.

and to make it even more ridiculous, the jersey he's wearing looks prison issued.

That wiener has stitches. I hope I never have to type that again.

John Morrell dogs cost 0.99, whereas Ball Park beef franks cost about $4. So, we can guess its not Kobe beef in that wiener.

Gee. Cheap meat? Ohio? What does that mean? Roadkill? Squirrel dogs? Possum franks? Carson seems quite comfortable gobbling the mystery meat. (Whatever that implies.)
