Teddy Float

Dedicated to Ted "The Swimmer" Kennedy.

Is this in poor taste?

Of course it is.
But then, no one has ever accused me of being tasteful or tactful.

Culture of corruption, indeed.

The text of the ad follows:

If Ted Kennedy drove a Volkswagen, he’d be President today.

It floats.
The way our body is built, we’d be surprised if it didn’t.

The sheet of flat steel that goes underneath every Volkswagen keeps out water, as well as dirt and salt and other nasty things that can eat away at the underside of a car. So it’s watertight at the bottom.

And everybody knows it’s easier to shut the door on a Volkswagen after you’ve rolled down the window a little. That proves it’s practically airtight on the top.

If it was a boat, we could call it the Water Bug.

But it’s not a boat, it’s a car.

And, like Mary Jo Kopechne, it’s only 00 and 44/100 percent pure.

So it won’t stay afloat forever. Just long enough.

Poor Teddy.

If he’d been smart enough to buy a Volkswagen, he never would have gotten into hot water.
Maybe we can have a Robert Byrd commercial selling sheets for Sears next.
