Imgur

5. And this advertorial suggesting you should clean your genitals before asking for a raise

7. This woman who can put her nether regions right in your face, without fear

8. OK, this is actually an ad for shoes. But we felt it merited inclusion.

“300 tampons = 1 pair of shoes”.

YouTube/Sharkusia

16. And this mystifying tie-in to Wikileaks.
