To mark the 1,000th Day of the Iraq War the Independent had this "War in Numbers" page, (go over to Joblog for the text). Pretty effective, right? Yeah, except their ad department sold a third of the page to a car company. Text of the ad below:
"To give you more room to stretch your legs, we made our car more like a stretched limo. An idea occurred to us when we designed the new Vauxhall Signum: stretched limos have plenty of room. So why not just move the front and back wheels apart a few more inches to make more space to sit? Now all you need is the drinks cabinet and chauffeur."
