    Here's a genuine picture (taken before the meal was started) still used on a genuine website advertising a genuine restaurant that I used to work at (taken long after I'd left I assure you) .. when it comes to terrible food advertising ? .. this surely can't be beat ? ..

    Imagine if this was put down in front of you on your night out ?

    I mean,usually when a restaurant is taking the piss by selling someone one quarter of a plate of food for about £12.99, they have the decency to try and make it look bigger by putting the food in the middle of the plate on top of some token arty looking zig zag patterns of sauce or even a couple of berries or something on the dark side of the moon empty side of the plate .. a GCSE student could have taken a better photo, no matter how tasty the food is .. I'm wondering if the shadow on the plate costs extra? ..

    Exactly - what a terrible simulacrum! It could be virtually any white-jumpsuit-wearing androgynous 80 pop star. I want my money back!

    This may take a moment to click, but there's a cat and a dog riding a turtle.

    Workers removed the advertisement boards at the train station. In the unpainted area behind these boards there appeared a surreal landscape (like the jungle cities of Max Ernst).
