Porn and mourning?

I assume you are a little shocked by the title.I spent quite some time wandering what title to give to this posting and it seems like this is the most suitable title,even if it is shocking.
So here is what provoked me to write the following posting.
While I was checking my mailbox today,among the bills,yet another supermarket catalog and yet another annoying SPAM letter from "Reader's Digest"(I will explain why this publishing house is so fucking annoying me some other time)I came across the most disgusting brochure I had ever laid eyes on,which advertised...a funeral home.In fact,the advert was so ridiculous,that,for I moment I thought it was a sick joke made by some retard with lots of free time on their hands.But..no.It looked way too serious to be a joke.It was made up of two cards.Now,before you ask,'Why is that brochure so scandalous?',let me show you how the first card looked like:



No,this is not an optical illusion.What you see now is a fantastic fairy landscape.In front of it you see a naked girl.Really naked.And what you see in the upper right corner of the picture is the kind face of an old man who looks lustfully at the naked girl.This,apparently,is a depiction of...God.In the lower right corner of the picture is the logo of the funeral home,which,as I learned from the leaflet,is called "Sofia"
It gets even worse when you turn over the card and read what is says on the back:
(it is in Bulgarian,but I will translate the most vulgar excerpts later on)


The absurdity continues:



Well,I don't know how you would react if you were in my shoes,but THIS was way too much for me.I got furious-for a reason.
Not to mention that I do not wish to receive in my mailbox leaflets telling me that there is someone who can take extra care in organizing My Last Journey-yes,we are all mortals,but,hey,admit it-no one wants to think about their death,as inevitable as it is...
On the back of the vulgar leaflet with the naked girl it says :"This information does not concern you but it can be useful to you to help others".-that is correct-IT DOES NOT CONCERN ME.As far as I remember,I haven't subscribed to receive brochures from FUNERAL HOMES.I doubt anyone has.And even if i WERE concerned,(which I am definitely NOT),I wouldn't turn to your services even if you were the LAST funeral home on Earth!Frankly,with your vulgar and inadequate way of "advertising",I can't see how anyone would want to seek your services.


It is cheeky,tasteless and irrespectable for a firm which has taken on such services to show a naked girl...and God on one and the same brochure.(?!?!
A firm,which,through the essence of its services,should pay some,at least seeming,respectto christian values.
It is absolutely preposterous for me to look at the "hot" picture and on the back of it read things like"There is never a good time for a birth and a death","In a day of pain and grief,in a hospital or at your home,you can trust us at all times and tell us the Sad News ",and the most ridiculous sentence of all-"At all times we try to help and give our best to organize the last send-off of the Man with dignity and respect".


What dignity?What respect?

I think that all commentary on the above excerpts is needless.

Since one of the business cards was signed by some Ventzislav Palamarov,I will address him in an (in)direct way hoping that he knows how to work with Internet and that maybe there is a small chance that he will come across this posting-Mr Palamarov,are you an IDIOT?Or just another crafty peasant who has decided to put some fresh female flesh in the otherwise "dull"(?!?!) funeral home brochure?
It is impertinent.It is ridiculous.And I am not sure whether it is very legal.I don't know,Mr Palamarov.Even if your kind of advertising is juridically legal in our country(Bulgaria) it is morally illegal..Yes,but it is someone else's job to straighten this problem out.My job is to tell you that I do not wish to receive any more of your "brochures".Period.

If you have read this posting so far and are still interested in the services of funeral home "Sofia",my dear reader,you can contact them 24-7 via phone: 02/925 01 74.
