"I used to think. Now I just read the Economist"

That's what flashed up as part of an ad for The Economist (pbuh) that I came across online. Maybe I didn't catch it properly. If I did, it is the creepiest advertising slogan I've seen since Wayne Goss put a flyer in my letterbox saying: 'It's good to be on the winning side.'

That's comedy gold, right there.

And who says there is no truth in advertising?

Seems to be a quote from Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle, wot I've verified here.

Ellison is a funny guy. Plus he totally bought a fighter jet so that he could live the ultimate big kid fantasy lifestyle when he's not being, you know, a super-CEO.

I suspect he'd be a tool to work for, though.

Too simplistic. "The Economist" augments and polishes the thought process. It in no way can claim to replace it :)
