Bell Pepper U

While watching a very entertaining clip on the Best Week Ever blog about a shoe-sized piglet today, I became distracted by an advertisement for an online college program that effectively demonstrated why I should not attend this particular institution


Lessons learned:

I should not enroll at the school because I do not want to spend a two-year minimum at a place whose marketing team cannot afford any better promotion than a grid of clip art bell peppers with faces.

I should not enroll at the school when its aforementioned advertisement features the same single bell pepper clip art repeated six times with the same unrelated face clip art repeated in each bell pepper’s center.

I should not enroll at the school whose notion of decorating six bell peppers in honor of its various fields of study mean slapping additional clip art on three of them and leaving the other three blank.

I should not enroll at the school that counts “healthcare” and “nursing” as two unrelated fields of study.

I should not enroll at the school that thinks a cartoon heart is a better symbol of the healthcare professions than, say, a cartoon stethoscope.

I should not enroll at the school the advertisement seems to place a cursor or “click here” box next to the option “other,” as if the listed fields of study were somehow inherently inferior.

At least one of the options wasn’t graphic design. Go Bell Peppers!

  2. At least they should have used habaneros, so we could assume it was a hot college.

    If you go to the page you can roll over the bell peppers and they're all animated, so they did add something to each pepper/major. You just can't tell without the rollover.
