"I'll have a cheesburger and chili, and a stroke on the side."

The Acadiana Stroke Center on one side, Checkers seventy-nine cent artery clogging options on the other.

Hats off to the ad man for this example of what I call billboard poetry:  unintentionally poetic, but poetic nonetheless, by the ironic effect of juxtaposing words and images.

Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow you have a stroke, but be merry anyway, because the Stroke Center’s got your back!
