Marketing Gimmick

Every day I hear of some new product with the word "smart" in its name.

In my head, I just replace it with the word "smug". It seems more accurate.

Think about it next time you're stuck in line behind some woman sipping Smug Water while talking too loudly on her Smug Phone.

  2. Maybe you are onto something there Harvey. The liberals always say that Obama is the smartest man in the room, but I always see him as the smuggest.

  3. To be fair, Glacea Smart Water is delicious. Water form a tap leaves a metallic aftertaste in my mouth.

  4. Andrew - I won't argue. I'll just mention that it just makes the water tasty, not smart.

    And to be totally unfair, this guy's gettin' WAY smug about drinking it :-)
