Where's Waldo?

The climatological experts at the McHenryCountyBlog rarely miss an opportunity to pass along a helpful reminder that global warming is a hoax perpetrated by the benighted liberal media.

No doubt as a reaction to the record cold temperatures this summer, those same experts have been combing their no-doubt skyrocketing Nicor gas bill for refundable errors. Perhaps this explains why the McHenryCountyBlog posted a scan of one of those special-offer inserts that fall out of the Nicor bill ...
which has been reproduced here, to the right.

The insert is an offer for low-cost monthly utility insurance of some sort -- although this one in particular looks like something that could have fallen out of a ComEd bill instead. Luckily, the McHenryCountBlog posts some helpful commentary, alerting their readers to the salient marketing elements ...
Under the really worried woman’s and disturbed husband’s photo is the subject of the ad:

Your LakeCountyEye would add that if the woman's husband has anything to be disturbed about it, it may be about the sort of look she is passing that gas meter reader guy. Not to mention that 8 inch steely-dan he's holding.

The McHenryCountBlog has never let a subliminal message get by unlimned, and concurs, observing ...
But what sticks out in the piece is the "Protect yourself from (the) SHOCK."
For faithful readers of the McHenryCountyBlog, it goes without saying that every government protected monopoly is always trying to stick it to somebody every chance they get.
