Heightened expectations

April 24th, 2009 | by obc |

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then would two contrasting pictures be worth two thousand words, because there’s two of them, or zero words, because they are opposites?  Maybe it’s still a thousand words, seeing as most people probably want their idioms free and clear of any math.

Ran across an interesting post on the Surf Report: a compare and contrast of fast food advertisements and how the actual food looks like. While an interesting peek into the world of advertising, capitalism, or even the American culture in general, it made me think of some other areas of life where advertising/expectations are quite different that the real thing.

  • Politics: politicians during campaign season vs. politicians in office
  • Marriage/relationships: courtship/engagement vs. actual married life

What are some others? Leave comments.
