Rub-a-dub-duh

Take a look at the advertisement below and see if anything other then the cleansing power of Dove soap is brought to mind.

This is yet another advertisement that has been decried as racist. Sure are a lot of them about. And why is it deemed racist? In case you still can't figure it out, the ad is accused of implying that filthy negro-ness can be scrubbed away with sufficient application of Dove soap (we all know this is unfortunately not the case). Still, I admit I can see a marked improvement from the original raw material. In fact, this is the most interesting development in the world of soap-making since Uncle Adolf's rendering facility stopped churning out RIF bars by the 6-millions.

Of course, we could take another message from the "before" and "after" images. For example, Dove soap also apparently makes you drop about 150 pounds of flab when you use it.
