What is it with folks working for the government and their inability to come up with a good tagline? Check out this full page ad taken out by Karnataka Silks in The Hindu. The tagline reads, “We Compromise, But Not On Quality.” Indeed!

It gets worse, the customer testimonials along the sidebar, are a little less than effusive in their praise. Were these really the best testimonials they could get out of all the customer comments sent to them over the years?

We are reminded of the India Census Department website a few years ago. They proudly proclaimed, “We Also Count People.” A direct rip off of the famous Tata Steel ads of course. But really, what else does the census department do? (Here’s the old census page from the Internet Archive)
