Buy your wife a Volkswagen

Apologies for the splice - my scanner is small. :(
Wow. Insulting much? You know it'd be more likely that hubby would do this after a 7 martini lunch with the boys from the office!
Women are soft and gentle, but they hit things.

OMG! brb laughing up a storm

I'm soft and gentle, and I'd like to hit the copywriter with a clue-by-four.
Ha! The words "neener-neener" leap to mind. ;-D

RE: your icon - Pretty kitty - nice hat!
But can the dealer replace the dead wife, since beetles used to be as sturdy as matchboxes in car accidents? Can't buy much car crash safety with 24.99, can you?

I saved that image, before it goes down the Women's Studies' memory hole.

Oranges and lemons, say the bells of St. Clement's...

aside from all that, it is a good ad. Wish they still had parts like that!
actually...I have a New Beetle and they're still pretty strong. I've been in 2 collisions...yes I'm a woman, and no, none of them were my fault. The first one, I was on an intersection, waiting for my turn, and some bitch rear-ended me. She decided to stop with my car. My car had minor damage. Her car...that's another story. A WRECK! Second one, I was PARKED, and some douche hit my car on the passenger side (managed to stop him before he ran away, I was *just* stepping out and saw it all happen. He was coming in really fast. Faster than bitch in the first collision). It was a terrible collision. And it pisses me off just talking about it, BUT, the car survived.
