The Gallery of the Absurd


I am the creator of The Gallery of the Absurd, a repository of weird–but real–advertisements, labels, and signs. It began in 1996 as a simple website of scanned images and sarcastic commentary, featuring such specialty pages as “The Annoying J. Crew Model of the Week,” “The Arch Deluxe Hate Page,” “Clowns Are Scary,” and “Jenny McCarthy, Enough Is Enough!” Due to massive audience feedback and contributions, The Gallery quickly grew in popularity, winning the 1997 Webby Award in the “Weird” category. After a brief hiatus, it is back as a blog, so folks can now easily get their daily fix of the warm and creamy goodness that is our contemporary marketing culture.
