In the spirit of “Things That Make You Go Hmmm …,” I would like to present this billboard for a Citgo gas card. The headline reads, “Nobody will say, ‘You shouldn’t have.'” above a picture of a box with the Citgo gift card inside.

Hey Friend! Turning 40’s a drag, huh? Your hair’s starting to fall out, and your kids are driving you crazy. Hey, speaking of driving, I got you this Citgo gift card — happy birthday, pal!

Darling, even buylevitra.net though we’ve been together for 50 years, you still know how to fire my engines. Speaking of engines, happy golden anniversary — here’s a Citgo gift card!

Okay, so maybe the problem is there needs to be a clarifying subhead. “Nobody will say, ‘You shouldn’t have’ without writing you off as a crappy gift giver.” There, now that makes sense!
