What happens in a fishing boat stays in a fishing boat?

July 21, 2006

Okay, this one is kind of creepy. Tourism authorities in Hungary, trying to attract the “young crowd” to the Lake Balaton resort area, are using a graphic cartoon showing a young blonde woman having sex with a married dude in a fishing boat on the lake. You can see it here:

I don’t get this one.  Do we think Hungarian wives are going to be like, “Honey, you’ve been working too hard, why don’t you go off to Lake Balaton and get a fishing boat, like the guy in that ad?” Or, do we think hot young Hungarian sluts are going to be like, “Hey, we should all go to Lake Balaton and meet some old married farts who can’t even afford to get a motel room!” 

Apart from the fish, who stand to be pretty happy if all the rowboats are being used for adultery, who else benefits? hungary300.jpg

So, Hungarians wear their wedding bands on their right hands? (I predict this marketing strategy will not elicit rhapsody from any quarter…)
