Car Wash Promises Best Hand Job

Scrubbers, a Luton, UK-based car wash company was slapped on the wrist by Britain's Advertising Standards Authority for a leaflet, distributed on windshields of parked cars, with the cartoon image of a buxom blond washing a car and the tagline, "The best hand job in town." If that weren't enough wink, wink, the brochure described the company's various services with names like "In n Out," "Polish Off," "The Quickie," The Full Monty" and "Personal Service." Predictably, Scrubbers' spokesperson Megan Gallagher defended the leaflet hinting everyone's an idiot saying, "Some people are very small-minded and they can't take these things in fun, which is what the intention was."
