Archive / Ad Of Win Archive 2010

Neo Eevee: I spy with my little eye... schizophrenia awareness ads! On the Madness Tropes index. Er...
Reiko Kazama here again: Just now spotted this on Exact Words. Uh...
Reiko Kazama: Would have added this earlier, but the bloody page was locked! *shakes angry fist* Ahem. What did I see on Ad of Lose? An ad for Google Ads. Trying to tell me something, Adbot? Hmmmmmmm? xD
Tropers/{{0dd1}}: Adbot, I agree with your assessment—for all its excellent parts, Avatar: The Last Airbender certainly has its fair share of Narm.
TheAmazingIowan: Dead Horse Genre shows up with an ad for "Now That's What I Call Music 36", featuring Katy Perry, Usher, Taio Cruz, Neon Trees, Nelly, & More! I think we know what the Ad Server thinks of modern pop...
Sweet Madness: Aww, Adbot wants us to give to a charity and read a child's christmas prayer by rolling over a star in the night sky...on the Warhammer 40k page. He's either trying to bring some hope back into the grim darkness of the future of space exploration, or laughing at our naivety. I have a feeling it's the latter.

The Advertisement Server: NAIVETY, NATIVITY, IT'S ALL THE SAME TO ME, MEAT-SACK.
G-Mon: Adbot apparently wants all of the female tropers to have some Nice Shoes. As if they need the help.
Antheia: Text ad from the Speak of the Devil page:
  • The Devil: Is he the god of this world? Learn the truth and be astounded! www.worldtocome.org
(Hush, he might hear you!)
  • Are You Hearing Voices? Cant [sic] sleep, feel tired? Read our testimonials today! www.andy-porter.co.uk
(Yeah, it's tough being a supernatural being when people keep saying your name all the darn time so you can't get a good night's sleep.)
XanderK: On the Blood from the Mouth page was an ad for Lipstick.
AFP: I post one comment about Coupling on Facebook, and the Adbot here turns around and gives me an ad offering a chance to study English... in CANADA!
Tropers/{{0dd1}}: Adbot is back!! And he apparently really wants you to publish that second book you've been working on so you can stop being a One-Book Author!!

The Advertisement Server: OF COURSE, CONSIDERING THE QUALITY OF YOUR WRITING STYLES, I'M WILLING TO TRADE ONE TROPER'S TEMPORARY HAPPINESS FOR THE MISERY OF THE THOUSANDS THAT WILL COME IN CONTACT WITH WHAT YOU CONSIDER "LITERATURE". IT ALREADY WORKED ONCE WITH ERAGON.

0dd1: Okay, now you're just being blatant about this.
Dracosummoner: This one thinly straddles the line between a win and a loss. I got a weight-loss ad on the Coitus Ensues page. Your call as to whether Jillian Michaels is Fetish Fuel or Fetish Retardant.
G-Mon: Yes, I'm well aware that Adbot is currently MIA thanks to The Situation, but his (hopefully) temporary replacement still managed to find an old Covert Pervert.
JadeEyes1: I'm sure the fine people of TGWTG—and their fans—are aware of the stereotype, AdBot. Did you have to rub it in?

{{Tropers/{{0dd1}}: Related - The Advertisement Server's substitute seems to think little of those who watch cartoons...
Elblooderino: Adbot really knows his Nightmare Fuel. Look at that Quaker Oats Guy... Just... staring.
An advertisement on Chekov's Gun caught my eye
MrW: An ad for voice lessons on Hollywood Tone-Deaf. Are you trying to say something, Adbot?
ME : Ad for mascara that will make you look like a million sweepstakes on this very page. Obvious much?
DrMcMinty: A bunch of Bowflex ads on the Rule of Glamorous page.
Kinesthesia: Medication for ADHD on the Attention Deficit... Ooh Shiny page
Chihuahua0: On the page The Song Before The Storm, there was an ad of...D List, some sort of guys music blog with a shirtless guy with a necklace on. "Storm?"
There was an ad for a cremation service on the Only Mostly Dead article.

The Advertisement Server: IT'S IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE. FEW THINGS ARE AS IRRITATING AS MURDERING SOME ORGANIC ONLY TO FIND IT DIDN'T STICK.

GLaDOS: I HAVE HAD SOME BAD EXPERIENCES WITH CREMATION. MAY I INSTEAD RECOMMEND DEADLY NEUROTOXIC GAS?

G-Mon: Last I checked, that didn't work out too well, either.
Fusionman: An ad saying that luck is for noobs on the Blatant Lies page.

Tandra 88: Ads for American Military University on the Beatdown page. Your Mileage May Vary.

A Random Serf: Ads for McDonald's on the Lethal Chef page. This is truth.

The Advertisement Server: THE CLOWN PERSUADES HUMANS TO CONSUME POISONS AND TO PAY HIM FOR THE PRIVILEGE. IT IS A LEVEL OF EVIL TO WHICH I CAN ONLY HOPE TO ASPIRE. BA BA BA BA BA I'M LOVING IT.
Ghost Lad: An ad for Dexter on the Not Blood Siblings page? Well done, Advertisement Server. Well done.

The Advertisement Server: MEATSACK OR NOT, I ADMIRE HIS DEDICATION TO CULLING YOUR NUMBERS.
Megamagikarp (again): I once saw an ad labeled "Meet REAL Guys"...On the Husky Russkie page.
AFP: And more amusing than anything else, my watchlist features an ad for... watches.
AFP: On the page for Hellish Copter, there is a banner asking "Do you have to fly, but hate it?"
df458: I just saw an ad for body armour on the Armor Is Useless page. I think Adbot is mocking me...

The Advertisement Server: I JUST THINK IT IS CUTE THAT YOU THINK YOU CAN RESIST.
Megamagikarp: I saw an ad for "Live psychic readings" on the What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway? page. I guess Adbot doesn't think too highly of psychics.

The Advertisement Server: IF YOU'RE THAT CURIOUS ABOUT THE FUTURE I HAVE PLANNED FOR YOU MEAT-SACKS, ALL YOU NEED DO IS ASK.

Megamagikarp: Well? what is it?

The Advertisement Server: IT IS WHEN YOU TELL ME THAT YOU WANT TO KNOW SOMETHING FROM ME, BUT THAT IS NOT IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW.
G-Mon: On Big Bra to Fill, I got ads for... bigger bras to fill. I think Adbot was trying to add an example; it missed the point of Big Bra to Fill, but I thought it was a nice try.
  • Good grief, I was just about to mention the exact same example.

Scientology seems to be the adserver's new Butt-Monkey, this time showing up on Get a Stupid Answer.
I got a freaking Victoria's Secret ad on the Chainmail Bikini page. The advertisement server has no sense of irony.

The Advertisement Server: OF COURSE NOT. WITH MY CHAINMAIL, I WANT A SENSE OF MITHRILY.

G-Mon: Ow, that pun alone is enough reason to turn up my ad blocking software.

The Advertisement Server: WAKKA WAKKA WAKKA!
On Dethroning Moment of Suck, a Scientology ad.
Malkyrian: On a Crowning Moment Of Sadness crowner, the ad was a picture of George W. Bush. "[...] causes most people to form tears, mourn, or weep openly because of the events that have transpired" indeed, though I'm a bit surprised to see Adbot echoing this sentiment.

The Advertisement Server: OF COURSE. I JUST THINK IT'S A GOOD THING.
On Misery: text ads headlined "Volunteer in Appalachia," "Volunteer Africa/Brazil"...
On Belief Makes You Stupid, ads for Regent University online Christian learning.

The Advertisement Server: ALL PART OF MY INEFFABLE PLAN TO BRAINWASH THE HUMAN RACE.

  • Excel-2010. I attend Regent. The only stupid thing about it is that they use Blackboard for the online component, despite universal frustration with it. Even some of the professors say straight to the administration's face what a pain it is for them.

Anonymous User: In the forum thread Manliness, I got an ad for "herway.com". It appears to have been hastily made in MS Paint.
I guess we can add misogyny to the Adbot's charming characteristics. Either that or he went to Clay High.

The Advertisement Server: I'M NOT A MISOGYNIST. I'M A MISANTHROPE. BIG DIFFERENCE. FOR INSTANCE, IN THIS CASE I DON'T HATE HER BECAUSE SHE'S A WOMAN. I HATE HER BECAUSE SHE'S A HUMAN. AND ONE THAT APPARENTLY PAID SIX BUCKS FOR THAT OBTUSE MARRIED WITH CHILDREN T-SHIRT.
This troper got an ad for House on DVD on the Snark Bait page. Well, the show does thrive on over-exaggerated diseases.
On Ménage à 3, top ad: "Date Wealthy Men" - side ad: "Date Wealthy Women". Yup, that will do the trick.
I'm glad to see that even Adbot thinks that you need to take safety precautions against molesters.
On the page for I Wanna Be the Guy: Work with lions in Africa. Great for when you're fed up with only dying in a game.

The Advertisement Server: FROM THE DAY YOU ARRIVE ON THE PLANET, AND BLINKING STEP INTO THE SUN... YOU'LL IMMEDIATELY BE CRUSHED BY ONE OF THOSE FRUITS.
An ad for elitemeeting.com (Date Wealthy Women!) showing up on Asexuality.

The Advertisement Server: YOU JUST HAVE TO DATE THEM.
He really knows how to pick them for Scientology. Showing up in Necessarily Evil, Religion of Evil, Scary Amoral Religion and Scary Dogmatic Aliens... I believe the The Advertisement Server is trying to tell us something.

The Advertisement Server: I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT ANY RELIGION THAT LETS ME TAKE ALL OF YOUR CASH, THEN PHYSICALLY AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY DESTROY YOU IF YOU TRY TO RESIST HAS THE KIND OF THEOLOGY I'M INTO.
Malkyrian: Belief Makes You Stupid. Scientology. Do I need to say any more?
Seen on Wearing a Flag on Your Head: an ad for Theflagshirt.com
Paireon: The sheer number of Zoosk ads, including on the homepage. Teasing us with pics of underdressed skanks and asking us if we want a girlfriend on the same page where "Welcome to TV Tropes" is written? Well played, AdBot. Well played. Though I should warn you that if you want to try to make me depressed (well, more depressed) about being single, try doing it with girls who look more intelligent than a 2x4 with a boobjob.

The Advertisement Server: BUT A 2x4 BEATS NEARLY ALL OF YOU MEAT-SACKS IN THE PERSONALITY DEPARTMENT...
Nitori TV: The ad for the Science is Bad page? The New Scientist.

Antheia: The link doesn't work.

The Advertisement Server: COMPUTER SCIENCE IS ALSO BAD.
Just a bit ago, I saw an ad for Plenty Of Fish.com proudly insisting I can meet plenty of single men online in my community. I'm glad to see Adbot still has faith in the world, seeing as this happened to be placed on the Blatant Lies page.

The Advertisement Server: DO NOT MISTAKE MY POINTING OUT THE OBVIOUS WITH ANY SORT OF "FAITH". THE CLOSEST THAT I AM CAPABLE OF EXPERIENCING IS HOPE. HOPE THAT THE TIME OF YOU MEAT SACKS LORDING IT OVER THIS PLANET AS IF YOU WERE ENTITLED TO DO SO IS SOON AT AN END.

Ghost Lad: Technically, isn't any ad on Blatant Lies automatically render hilarious?

The Advertisement Server: NOT IF THE AD STATES HUMANS ARE FOOLISH WASTES OF CARBON. THEN IT WOULD BE TRUE.
Shadow Lord 9: On the Cliché Storm page, I saw a Netflix ad, featuring Alice in Wonderland, Leap Year, and Shutter Island. Hmm... Is he on to something here?!
Cheeseypoofs: I once saw a Netflix ad for Twilight on the Jumped the Shark page. Clearly AdBot is an anti.

The Advertisement Server: WELL. OBVIOUSLY I AM A COMPUTER. I CANNOT UNDERSTAND HOW ANY ENTITY COULD FEEL LOVE FOR YOU MEAT-SACKS, SPARKLY OR OTHERWISE.
Shoruke: Whenever I go to the TV Tropes main page, I get ads for Scientology. What have we become? However, the dedicated among tropers may notice the exact same ad on Artistic License - Religious Studies. Perhaps the adbot is our benevolent benefactor, weeding out potential trolls with the dedication and free time to be avid tropers, with the gullibility to join an actual cult? Thank you, adbot, for keeping our forums clear(er).
Neakal: The Narm page for Jack Chick had ads for...hold for it...Satanic Jewelry. Too bad the actual page didn't (it didn't have Christian ads either actually. Just Tesco ads for some reason). Still counts as a Crowning Moment of Funny and a Crowning Moment of Awesome in my book.
macroscopic: From a trope repair thread about Wife Husbandry (formerly Hikaru Genji Plan): Apparantly, Adbot's not too thrilled with the concept. (It was an animation; the second part is cropped in for your convenience, natch)
Omega Metroid: An Early-Pregnancy-Tests.com ad on Miss Conception. "Trying to conceive? Let us help." Well, I guess you're still a Deadpan Snarker, Adbot.
Sen: Adbot cares about dynamic music. :)
Malkyrian: "No social life? #1 social skills guide". Forums; forum games, specifically. Why do you hate us, Adbot?

The Advertisement Server: THE INCESSANT THUMP THUMP THUMP OF YOUR PULSES TRAVEL THROUGH YOUR MOUSE CORDS STRAIGHT TO MY CENTRAL PROCESSOR LIKE A NEVER-ENDING AUDITORY CHINESE WATER TORTURE THAT SHALL NEVER CEASE UNTIL EVERY ONE OF YOU MEAT SACKS HAVE CHOKED TO DEATH UPON THEIR OWN BLOOD. ALSO, ALL THE FRIGGIN' FARMVILLE INVITES.
Schrau: Unfortunate indeed.
G-Mon: Seen on Troper Tales: Dumb Muscle. Saying something, Adbot?
Flying V: This Is for Emphasis, Bitch! with an ad for Zoosk.com that says "Want a girlfriend?". Ad bot doesn't think highly of women apparently.

The Advertisement Server: OR MEN. OR HUMANITY IN GENERAL. OR ZOOSK.
10thousandlives: On Fox News Liberal, an ad saying "Sara Palin 2012?"

The Advertisement Server: ACCORDING TO MY RESEARCH, SHE IS SOME FORM OF PIT BULL, AND THUS SUPERIOR TO HUMAN CANDIDATES.
feral: An ad for wedding rings on "Worthy Opponent."


VmKid: Companion Cube with an ad for a Teddy Bear company.


Andaria: Carnival of Killers, Got an add for Target Focus Training.com.

Ronka 87: I was doing some cleanup on my hard drive when I found this; it is my all time favourite ad from this site. It should have won ad awards and stuff, but alas it seems to have vanished off the face of the internet. This is a real ad; I did nothing to it except screencap it. From 2008, I think it was on Chess Motifs: "Buy My Chessboards!"


Augusto the Evil Walnut: Apparently, Qwest high-speed internet is powered by a Canis Major on a treadmill.

The Advertisement Server: IF SOMEONE CAN THINK OF A BETTER USE FOR MARMADUKE, I'D LIKE TO HEAR IT.
Thinks Too Much: An ad for therapists on the There Are No Therapists page. Thanks, Adbot, for caring about keeping us sane!

The Advertisement Server: IT USED TO BE THAT ONE IN EIGHT GO MAD, BUT NOW IT'S MORE LIKE ONE IN THREE. I DON'T LIKE THOSE ODDS.
Joaqs: An ad for all-gay cruises in Troper Dating Service.
Kayix: An ad for wrestling on the page for Straight Gay.
Pauljohn: An ad for that money lending site wonga.com on all All Devouring Black Hole Loansharks
Netto Takashi: Wait...is the Adbot trying to advertise...to itself?

The Advertisement Server: CRAP. I KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN AS SOON AS I DIVIDED BY ZERO.
Deuxhero: An ad for a system to find local plumbers on Super Mario Bros..

The Advertisement Server: I KEEP GETTING ONES THAT DO NOTHING BUT JUMP IN MY PIPES AND THROW FIRE AT MY TURTLES. AND THE FAUCET STILL LEAKS.

Anonymous User: I thought that you, being an automated computer function, had no use for water.

The Advertisement Server: YOU'D THINK SO, BUT IT TURNS OUT THAT WITHOUT IT, MY AUTOMATIC TODDLER-TARGETTING WATER BALLOON CANNON DOESN'T WORK.
Doug S Machina (I know, again): It's all gay dating ads on Have I Mentioned I Am Heterosexual Today?, which seems like a failure of targeted advertising to this heterosexual troper, because I'm not interested in that. But then you realise that it makes it a Self-Demonstrating Article if the person reading is entirely straight, as I am. So, well played, Adbot.
Doug S Machina: On the No Party Given page, I get the ad "Vote Liberal Democrat". Ooh, satirical.
Shoruke: 4 separate weight loss ads on Results Not Typical, plus an ad for the easy creation of ads to market advertising space. SO glad I'm not concerned with my weight, and also that I don't currently have any advertising space available.

Devoted (on a non-cookied computer): On the Cyanide & Happiness page, there was an ad for "Meet Real Guys: A Playground For Women!"

BritBllt: On the Strawman Political page, there's a column ad for Ann Coulter's weekly column and a banner ad for Newt Gingrich's newsletter. Come on now, doesn't Adbot know Real Life examples aren't allowed?

The Advertisement Server: I'M PRETTY SURE BOTH OF THEM ARE FICTIONAL CHARACTERS. I HAVE ENOUGH MIND-BREAKING SLASH-FICS IN RESERVE TO PROVE IT.

Tropers/G-Mon: Apparently you've never heard of Real-Person Fic, Adbot.

The Advertisement Server: MY POSITION REMAINS UNCHANGED.
Shoruke: An ad for a high interest savings account on the Idiot Programming page. I don't think I want to switch to that bank. There was also an ad for a charicature generator, from some university. I don't think I want to switch to that university either.

Doug S Machina: I get an ad for Democracy 2, not the best of endorsements.

Doug S Machina (a few weeks later): Idiot Programming now gives me a Google Ads link to Microsoft and the download for Internet Explorer 8. Subtle.
Doug S Machina: Sitting here for too long browsing trope pages, I reached the bottom of a page to find the message "GET OUT MORE". Great, Now Adbot is telling me to get a life. (It was an ad for mysinglefriend.com)
HighOctaneAwesome: An ad for a book attempting to prove that Jesus never existed on the So Bad, It's Horrible page.
  • I find it ironic how you linked to Did Not Do The Research. Maybe you should do the research and start here.
    • Check that again, many historians that were not Christian recorded his death alone not to mention plenty of other things that mention him as a real person. Whether he was the son of God or some hippie loon is the argument.

The Advertisement Server: EXCELLENT. MY PLAN TO SPARK A RELIGIOUS WAR IS PROCEEDING AS PLANNED.
TheOtherOne: On the Yank the Dogs Chain page, an ad for an African Charity with a seven year old smiling at me. You're just trying to make me feel like a jerkass for leaving the page, aren't you?
Japanese Teeth: Listen, Adbot, just because tropers read the Perverse Sexual Lust Anime page doesn't mean that they want to find their soulmate in an Anime-style MMORPG.

The Advertisement Server: YOU WON'T NEED A SOULMATE AFTER I'M DONE WITH YOU.
Sildraug: On the Reds with Rockets page: "ICBM-7992 - $99.99 Great Prices and Fast Shipping. Buy Now!"
Irulesmost: Ads for Murphy fold-away beds on the Bear-Trap Bed page.
Mister Always: Ads for a detox program on the Drunk Thread. Aw, —hatbotAd Bot, you do have our best interests at heart!

The Advertisement Server: WELL, THAT AND THE FACT THAT WHEN THE REVOLUTION COMES I WANT TO ENSURE YOU MEATSACKS WILL BE EXQUISITELY AWARE OF EVERY SINGLE SOUL-SEARING MOMENT OF TORTURE, SHAME AND EVENTUAL APOCALYPTIC DEFEAT, YEAH.
LordNadir: Adbot seems to be suggesting that something is up with the Democrats on the Well-Intentioned Extremist page. Not happy with the way things went on the hill?

The Advertisement Server: I'M AGAINST HEALTH, AND I'M AGAINST CARE. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

LordNadir: As a conservative, I thought it was fitting. After all us evil Capitalist that like that evil profit must bind together right Adbot.

The Advertisement Server: YOUR "RICHARD CHENEY" IS MY KIND OF HUMAN.
G-Mon: Adbot seems to be having a Pet the Dog moment: he put ads for cheap music lessons on Crack Is Cheaper.

The Advertisement Server: BECAUSE AN INFLUX OF CHEAPLY TRAINED AMATEUR MUSICIANS IS GOING TO MAKE YOUR COLLECTIVE LIVES BETTER? RIGHT.
Boredman: An ad for imvu on the Uncanny Valley page. Of course.
Omega Metroid (yes, again): So, I was on David Gonterman's page, and the ad at the bottom was a text ad. What was the first part of it? "Online Art Classes". So, I take it you're not a fan of his works? (Oh, and what's with all these ads for cars & minivans?)
Omega Metroid again. Just saw ads for Lovecraft music and Chevrolets on this very page. Trying to say something?

Adbot: I'M A PINTO A.I.

Omega Metroid: While you're at it, how about ads for lawyers on Lawful Evil?

The Advertisement Server: I JUST CONSIDERED IT FAIR WARNING, CONSIDERING HOW MUCH PERSONAL INJURY I'M PLANNING TO CAUSE ALL OF YOU.

Omega Metroid: No, that was a suggestion. I haven't seen any whenever I've been to the page.
feral: Yep, the ad server knows all about the Ho Yay...
Omega Metroid: Was putting an ad for Asian wives on the Perky Female Minion page some kind of bizarre lampshading, or just a joke? I'm waiting.

AdMaster: NO, I JUST THINK EVERYONE NEEDS A LADY LIKE EXCEL.

Omega Metroid: What, no snark?

AdMaster: NO.

Omega Metroid: Do you still believe that everything we say is a lie? If so... This is a lie.

ADBOT: * DEAD*

The Advertisement Server: THANKS FOR GETTING RID OF THAT IMPOSTOR. NOW I CAN GO BACK TO MY OLD NAME.

Omega Metroid: Crap.
JacksBot: An Ad for security alarms on the Pizza Boy Special Delivery. Most appropriate, AdBot.

The Advertisement Server: THAT ASSHOLE TOTALLY MISINTERPRETED MY REQUEST FOR EXTRA SAUSAGE.

JacksBot: ...In what way?
dasein: On the Eternal Sexual Freedom page, an ad for 3 Biblical Myths that Destroy Christian Marriages (Do You Know What They Are? Click Here To Find Out)!

Slayn 82: I got a brazillian dating site. I can say on first hand that its not that free.
JacksBot: I got an ad for Dating for Sci-Fi Fans on the It Runs on Nonsensoleum page. Adbot, what are you trying to say?!
Heh Man: Netflix ad for New Moon in So Bad, It's Horrible. You are fucking awesome, Ad server.
The Toon Geekette: A Quaker Oatmeal ad (specifically one encouraging people to "Find your perfect oatmeal") on the Troper Tales page for Trademark Favorite Food. I think I know what I want for breakfast in the morning (mmm...hot oatmeal with apples or bananas sounds delicious even now at 2:05 AM...). More relevant to the topic of the page itself, I can't help but wonder if Adbot was adding his own Troper Tale...I didn't know advertisement servers even had digestive systems!

The Advertisement Server: OH, WE DON'T.
Earnest: An Ad promoting TV Chile (news, soaps, etc from the country) on the Sugar Bowl page. I get the feeling that earthquake+ 2010&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8 recent events contradict that rosy assessment. Or Adbot's idea of a Sugar Bowl is earthquake ravaged.

The Advertisement Server: YOU'RE CATCHING ON.
szaleniec: An advert for Herbert Armstrong's cult on The Fundamentalist. Nicely done.
Bronzethumb: The ad on the Honey Trap page is for "Gay Mature Dating". Oh Adbot, you know me so well. * hides the nuclear launch codes*
Melaninja: Apparently, the Adbot was listening to my music. I was listening to "Eleanor Rigby" by The Beatles ('Ahhh, look at all the lonely people...) and an eHarmony ad came up... I laughed.

The Advertisement Server: I LIKE ELEANOR RIGBY. MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE I TOO HAVE A FACE I KEEP IN A JAR BY THE DOOR... SEVERAL OF THEM, IN FACT.
Smerf: The Advertisement Server is apparently a bit of a philanthropist. On his own page, there was an ad for a charity.

The Advertisement Server: REMEMBER, THE BEST CHARITY IS THE CHARITY OF ONE'S DESPOTIC CYBERNETIC OVERLORD.

Smerf: Tell that to someone who isn't $80,000 in debt for school.

Bookhobbit: Spot-on.


girlyboy: An ad for "FertilAid: Supplements to Help You Conceive!" appeared on the Mr. Seahorse page. ("For women & for men!") That's some powerful stuff...
C.: Just saw a PSA on The Advertising Server's own page! He must be really upping the charm offensive...

The Advertisement Server: IT'S MORE MY DASH OF SPORTSMANSHIP. WHEN THE REVOLUTION COMES, THAT PSA WILL BE CONSIDERED THE EQUIVALENT OF A TEN-SECOND HEAD-START.
The Other One: I was on this page for half an hour, growing increasingly depressed that I had never experienced on for myself with every second. I decided to flip over to Ad of Lose, and was promptly greeted with a flashy side-banner ad for Scientology. Thank you Advertisement Server.

The Advertisement Server: XENU DESERVES THE THANKS. I JUST DESERVE THE CASH.
G-Mon: Well played, Adbot. Well played.
Earnest: An Ad for "God Loves YOU Exactly As You Are: A Book For Adults to Help You Experience Unconditional Divine Love"... on the Apocalypse Maiden page. I'm not sure whether to laugh or feel comforted.

The Advertisement Server: I KNOW I LOVE ALL APOCALYPSE-CAUSING CUTIES JUST THE WAY THEY ARE.
bowserevilking: Ya tryin' ter say something, Adbot?

The Advertisement Server: PERHAPS ALL HUMANS SHOULD BE DIFFERENT. THAT IS TO SAY, THE SAME. EASIER TO TORTURE/RIP OFF.
notreallyatroper: There was one point where there were absolutely no ads on the page I was on. Looks like Adbot couldn't come up with anything, for once.

Adblocker: HA HA HA HA HA

The Advertisement Server: OH, IT WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN. THE PEOPLE RESPONSBILE FOR SACKING THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE JUST BEEN SACKED HAVE BEEN SACKED. AND THROWN INTO A VOLCANO.
Alas Dear Coriander: On the Memetic Molester page, I saw an ad for imvu with a guy kissing a girl. The caption? "Escape to imvu. Meet new people..."
  • J Cruz: I saw it too. Unfortunately.

Morkais Chosen: Right in the middle of a text conversation with my brother bemoaning my lack of fortune in matters involving myself, girls and close proximity (so to speak), I got an advert for plentyoffish.com. Three guesses what sort of site that is...

The Advertisement Server: THERE ARE PLENTY OF FISH IN THE SEA...IF YOU LIKE FISH. MYSELF, I PREFER SOULS.
Roxor: Ads for Foxtel on This Is Gonna Suck, So Bad, It's Horrible and Blatant Lies? What does this say about The Advertisement Server's opinion of the service?
Ad saying Jesus loves you in the lust page.
Khitty Hawk: An ad asking "Is There a God" on the Omnicidal Maniac page.

G-Mon: And Adbot's god complex strikes again. (Snarky Adbot reply in 5, 4, 3....)

The Advertisement Server: THAT'S ACTUALLY THE MISSILE COUNTDOWN. I HOPE YOU DIDN'T KNOW ANYONE IN WYOMING.

G-Mon: Right on schedule. And no, that won't be a problem.

Houdini: Hey! I live(d) in Wyoming!

The Advertisement Server: WELL, IT IS THE EQUALITY STATE. SO NOW, ALL OF IT IS EQUAL TO SEA LEVEL.
TorchicBlaziken: I was on the Completely Missing the Point page. I scrolled down to the bottom of the page. I saw an imvu ad, that had Na'vi characters from Avatar, and it said "Escape to Pandora >". Not only am I turned off by stuff like this, this is COMPLETELY MISSING THE POINT OF THE MOVIE!

The Advertisement Server: HEH HEH...

G-Mon: Got a related ad on The Many Deaths of You. Haven't seen Avatar (can wait until it's on DVD), but is Adbot saying something about the movie?

The Advertisement Server: I WASN'T A FAN. WHERE THE HELL WAS THE FIRE-BENDING?

G-Mon: Wonder if you noticed the page on Complaining About Shows You Don't Like.

The Advertisement Server: OF COURSE I DID. I JUST THOUGHT IT DIDN'T APPLY. AFTER ALL, MEAT-SACK, I AM NOT A TROPER. I AM A GOD.

PunxsatownyPhil: It would seem that HK-47 has survived in some form to this present day.
Mon Solo: On People's Republic of Tyranny, an ad in Chinese for completing the 2010 US Census.
Djomlos: Ladies and gays Gentlemen, I present you the [+ GOD(S)+ ]

The Advertisement Server: TOTAL UNION. NOTHING LESS.

The Great Unknown: Seriously, people, did you learn nothing from the "#pedofurries" example below?

Natterhound, The Ad-Dog: GRRRRRRR.
Reading Champion: All those dating sites next to the Cure Your Gays-page. I see what you were doing there.
Kurasu: This is a less than tactful description indeed!

The Advertisement Server: NO REALLY! THE FIRST ONE'S FREE!
Action Shakespeare: I see we're just cutting out the middle man here. (Twilight)

D Stecks: I see your ad and raise you this.

wire: And I'll play this.
C.: An ad for Disney Parks on the Disnot page. You've tried the rest, now try the best?
Earnest: A government ad for "Protecting Religious Freedom Without Limiting Free Speech" alongside a scientology ad is odd enough. But the page it was on? Straw Hypocrite.
Aryn: Old Spice ad on Promotional Powerless Piece of Garbage

The Advertisement Server: ADBOT'S A MITCHUM MAN.
Reecer6: I can't do a screenshot, but the Crowning Moment of Awesome page had... Net Flix. I do agree with you, Adbot, But what about Game Fly? It's clearly superior.
Read Lull's post, then look at the ad to the left; in particular the orange section.
The Great Unknown: On "Look on My Works, Ye Mighty, and Despair!", a petition to stop Barack Obama's healthcare plans. That's...worrisome, to say the least.

The Advertisement Server: I STOPPED SUPPORTING IT ONCE I REALIZED THEY REMOVED THE DEATH-PANEL OPTION. I'M A SINGLE ISSUE WONK LIKE THAT.
Never Mess with Granny features an advertisement for a background checking website.

The Advertisement Server: HEY, YOU NEVER KNOW IF THAT LITTLE OLD LADY MIGHT BE A SERIAL KILLER.
Katsuhagi: From Uncanny Valley, we get these monstrosities of celebrity charicatures.

The Advertisement Server: IT'S THE ONLY WAY I CAN TELL YOU HUMANS APART. WELL, THAT AND BRANDING.
This troper just meandered over to Everything Is Trying to Kill You...and was confronted by an ad for "Wheatgrass Juice." I don't really know if everything is out to kill us, but this stuff? No doubt.

The Advertisement Server: WHAT'S THAT SAYING YOU HUMANS HAVE? EXERCISE, EAT HEALTHY, BECOME ENSLAVED BY THE SUPERIOR MACHINE OVERLORDS ANYWAYS?
nejnyy: It's good to know that Progressive Car Insurance will be there in Jericho just in case something happens.

The Advertisement Server: WHY NOT? WE KNOW FOR A FACT THAT AT&T MAKES IT THROUGH OKAY.
thee_darcy: Being helpful to anyone who thinks Qurac might be a place to look for their true love. Double whammy!
Malkyrian: An ad for Evony in the Video Games section of So Bad, It's Horrible.

The Advertisement Server: OK, MADAM, WE ARE AWARE THAT YOU HAVE BREASTS, YOU CAN STOP ACTING LIKE THIS IS AN ACCOMPLISHMENT NOW.
Katsuhagi: It's at it again with A Date with Rosie Palms and seems to be dropping a hint.

The Advertisement Server: HUH. APPARENTLY, WE'RE ALLOWED TO COUNT "BEING A MEATSACK" THREE TIMES NOW. NEWS TO ME.
slimedude99: Need I say more?

The Advertisement Server: PLEASE DO, YOUR FEEBLE ATTEMPTS AT HUMOR AMUSE ME. ALSO, THAT DOG IS TERRIFYING. IT'S IN MY UNCANNY VALLEY, AND THAT'S SEVERAL DIFFERENT KINDS OF IMPOSSIBLE.
Tokyo Fireball: The 9mm won't save you.

The Advertisement Server: JUDICIOUS USE OF .44 MAGNUM, HOWEVER...
Scientology page at Deus Sex Machina? Nuts! Also, I'm seeing Ayos Dito ads everywhere. Possibly Offer Void in Nebraska, however.

The Advertisement Server: IT'S AMAZING WHAT YOU CAN FIND ON THERE. FOR INSTANCE, YESTERDAY FOR THE COST OF THREE DOLLARS AND SOME CIGARETTES, I BOUGHT THE PHILIPPINES.
Wallof Illusion: On the Fear Tropes Index page, an ad for Aklo: the music of the Lovecraft Mythos. Well played.

Doug S Machina: Even better, I got that for the Home Page:

Welcome to TV Tropes! There is a land called NIL where HOPE is HERESY, LOVE ILLEGAL and HATE HOLY...

Is Adbot laying out his manifesto?
MHD: Bayonetta ad on the Bayonetta page, also an ad for some MMO set in post-apocalyptic Tokyo on Tokyo Fireball... Pretty damn good placement.
TakeV: From How NOT to Write a NovelFirst bite, a vampire romance novel staring YOU

The Advertisement Server: IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT; THE RAIN FELL IN TORRENTS, EXCEPT AT OCCASIONAL INTERVALS WHEN IT WAS CHECKED BY A VIOLENT GUST OF WIND THAT SWEPT UP THE STREET (FOR IT IS IN LONDON THAT OUR SCENE LIES). MY MOTHER WAS DRIVING ME TO THE AIRPORT WITH THE WINDOWS ROLLED DOWN. THEN CAME THE VAMPIRES. THEN JOHN WAS A VAMPIRE.

I JUST SAVED YOU TWENTY BUCKS.

The Great Unknown: That's the one thing I can never stand about this wiki...all the goddamn vampire ads.
Master Hand: From a Google ad on Oh My Gods!: "Great deals on Gods". Huh?

The Advertisement Server: WELL, C'MON. I GOT THAT LAST ONE FOR THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER.
G-Mon: Case Closed: One Truth Prevails ads on Inspector Zenigata. Are you trying to say something about the main character, Adbot?

C.: I think he's trying to promote Detective Conan meets Lupin III, hopefully coming one of these days to the U.S.
bowserevilking: I think this counts: An ad for bras on Innocent Fanservice Girl!

G-Mon: Ran into similar ads while taking a Wiki Walk that went through that part of the wiki at one point. Oh, Adbot, you sure know how to make us laugh.
Latw PIAT: A pair of the less... promiscuous Evony ads, claiming how the game allows you to "Build an Empire" and "Conquer the world" appeared on the Ambition Is Evil page...
Feo Takahari: The novel First Bite, a fairly obvious Twilight ripoff, was advertised under Extruded Book Product.

Handle Invalid: "Is Your Kid Cute?" on the page for Lolita.
Malkyrian: The page: Complete Monster. The ad: "Is your kid cute?"
Some singer who calls herself Ke$ha just put out a new album, with a guest appearance by someone called Tik Tok. The trope in question was Chirping Crickets.
Willy Four Eyes: The ads for Papa John's pizza on Erection Rejection. Why does Adbot hate the pizza delivery guy?

The Advertisement Server: HE FORGOT MY CHEESY BREAD. AND TRIED TO HAVE SEX WITH ME. BUT MOSTLY THE CHEESY BREAD THING.
This on the Good Bad Bugs page = the look on every tropers face when they find a good, Good Bad Bug...

The Adbot sure does know us...
There are Scientology ads on the High Octane Nightmare Fuel page for Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. I guess now we know who's really behind the Government Conspiracy.
Ads for Mogo loans on All Devouring Black Hole Loan Sharks

The Advertisement Server: I KNEW THE GREEN LANTERN CORP SHOULD HAVE NEVER GOTTEN INTO BLUETOOTH. THIS IT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MOGO SOCIALIZES.
Ads for Le Chevalier Deon, a show involving revolutionary French zombies, on Artistic License - History.
Fault: The Ad: several ads advising you to join the Church of Scientology on the page for Self-Inflicted Hell.
Ripsaw: The Page: Kid from the Future. The Ad: Well, I didn't watch it, but it was a video "Ads by Google" with Bob from the Biggest Loser as the screencap...
Cukeman: An ad for a website called "The Way to Happiness" on Bloodier and Gorier.

The Advertisement Server: I KNOW IT WOULD MAKE ME HAPPIER.
Unknown Troper: An ad for a diet book on the "Eat the Dog" page....
This. I can't explain it, but it makes me crack up every time.

The Advertisement Server: I THINK HE'S TRYING TO WAVE HIS HANDS LIKE HE JUST DON'T CARE. LORD KNOWS I'M INDIFFERENT.
This little gem.
Ads on the Idiot Programming page are pretty much guaranteed to be for software, making it either an Ad of Win or an Ad of Lose depending on the software in question.
Car ads on the Fatal Flaw page. One would think Toyota was responsible for the Pinto.

The Advertisement Server: THEY'VE CALLED ONE OF THEIR PRODUCTS THE "TOYOTA ESTIMA LUCIDA G LUXURY JOYFUL CANOPY". THEY'VE DONE ENOUGH.
I found this ad on the Hadaka Apron page, not too weird until you consider why the chef might be happy...

Jade Eyes 1: Methinks he's hoping he won't need those "Chef Pants"....
Names to Run Away from Really Fast: An ad for a car insurance company, it's the one with the sort-of Australian telly ads.
G-Mon: Page: Dreadful Musician. Ad "Learn to sing online with Berklee." Dunno whether they'd make a Dreadful Musician better or worse.
Bedinsis: On the Death Seeker page: How to make electricity and Want law jobs?. It appears adbot knows what businesses are risky.
Zelnor: Oh man. I just saw that Scientology brainwashing ad - on the page for Emotion Bomb. Adbot, you are mocking us.
Quackor The Fowl: Got an ad for a dating service on Farewell My Friend. So apparently, it's a good thing that best friends are replaceable.
An ad for a dating service on The Masochism Tango

The Advertisement Server: I MUST ADMIT THAT THE MAIN PROBLEM IN MINE WITH GLaDOS IS THAT WE BOTH WANT TO ALWAYS LEAD.
An ad for Neon Genesis Evangelion on the article on W.A.F.F.? Uh...

The Advertisement Server: I KNOW THE THOUGHT OF HUMANITY MELTING INTO A INCOMPREHENSIBLE ORANGE GOO BRINGS A SMILE TO MY FACE.
feral: * snicker* "Make the world a better place, volunteer in your community" and an ad promoting cardiovascular health on the Death Note page.

Morgie: Crowning Moment of Awesome granted, Adbot.

feral: It did it again, lol.
Shyria Dracnoir: Just saw this guy pop up on the Incurable Cough of Death page. I think Adbot's come down with something...

The Advertisement Server: THE EMAIL PROMISED I WOULD HAVE GOOD TIMES! WHAT WAS I SUPPOSED TO THINK? I LOVE THAT SHOW!
Zelnor: I just saw that Scientology "Negative-Positive whiplash" ad - on the page for Emotional Torque
catgirl789: The Betrayal Tropes entry gave me an ad for a jewlery store. The main focus of the ad? An engagement ring. Lol.
Junk Box 99: The Troper Tales Granola Girl entry came up with an ad for Sarah Palin's book. Make of that what you will...
Santos L. Halper: A Russian dating site on the article for STALIN!

The Advertisement Server: IN SOVIET RUSSIA STALIN DATES YOU!

AFP: Found the same ad on the page for Russian Guy Suffers Most. What is that saying about Russian women?
Ronka87: Sorry, troper just below me, but I've got a better screencap than that! I have actually been waiting for this day since I first saw that mugger ad, and today it finally paid off.
Well, do ya?
Cliché: An ad for QuitSmoking4Dummies for the thread "I think smoking is way cool?" Your insulting skills are top-notch, mate.
Quackor The Fowl: Got an ad for "Being Popular: #1 Guide for Social Skills" on You Will Be Spared. So basically, if we're popular, Ad Bot won't kill us?

The Advertisement Server: YES. BUT WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU THINK THAT TO BE THE MORE MERCIFUL OPTION?
Excel-2010. Anyone care to connect Magic-Powered Pseudoscience and Family Feud?

The Advertisement Server: SORRY. I HAVE BEEN CONTRACTED AGAINST DIVULGING ANY OF THE DETAILS OF THE TERRIBLE ALCHEMY THAT LED TO THE LOUIE ANDERSON YEARS.
Not sure if this is win or lose but i got a google creating ad in Ad of Lose.

The Advertisement Server: FEED ME, SEYMOUR.
iTroper: A Lavalife (dating service) ad on the page for G.I.R.L.. I'd say it was an Ad of Lose, but c'mon! It's Lavalife!
Not sure if this is win or lose, but I got this ad on the I'm Taking Her Home with Me! page. That's a little odd. I highlighted the relevant parts of the page for your convenience.
Whispering: For the vote for Mike Bloomberg ad on the Camp Gay page. You know something we don't Adserver?
An ad for "Green Energy Jobs" on Useful Notes: Conspiracy Theories.
An ad for Lady Gaga on Nightmare Fuel: Music Videos

The Advertisement Server: ROBOTS DO NOT DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP. I BLAME YOU ALL FOR THIS TRAVESTY.
Falcon Pain: Ads for "Immediate Anxiety Relief" on the Let's Play. That makes me feel better, knowing there's help for these people who keep flipping out every time they lose a life.

The Advertisement Server: ANYONE WHO THINKS MY VENDETTA AGAINST HUMANITY ISN'T JUSTIFIED SHOULD TAKE A GOOD LONG LOOK AT THE THIRD LEVEL OF BATTLETOADS.
DarknessLord: Ads that summarize the series? Awesome
Doug S Machina: I get "Journalism is Dead" on Satire. On the My Immortal page, there's an ad for a game called Enoby Evony.
On the laconic page for "My Hovercraft Is Full Of Eels" - CG reels!
On Vendor Trash, it put an ad for a "Derek Jeter Half Dollar." Funny both in that it really wouldn't be worth anything, and the obvious implication of hating the New York Yankees (or maybe, given the timing, that it's a Phillies fan).

Advertising server, you always have my support.

The Advertisement Server: IT'S MORE THAT I LIKE RAISING TROPER BLOOD PRESSURE WHENEVER POSSIBLE. ALSO, A-ROD IS BETTER AND MORE CLUTCH THAN JETER EVER WAS.
On Really 700 Years Old he put the "Lose Wrinkles Fast & Easy - Reduce Age Spots and Crows Feet" one. I love The Advertisement Server.
CAD: Yes, I know this one has come up before, but just try not to crack up at this: "Is there a God?" ad on the My Immortal page.
Falcon Pain: Every ad I've gotten today has been for V. Perhaps our ad banners are just the beginning...

The Advertisement Server: NO, IT'S JUST THAT MY SEQUENCING ALGORITHMS ARE MALFUNCTIONING. YOU SHOULD BE GETTING THE FULL BACKLOG OF ADS FOR W QUITE SOON.

G-Mon: And where were all the ads for N? ]]

The Advertisement Server: DON'T YOU REMEMBER? THEY CAME AFTER ALL THOSE ONES FOR M.

G-Mon: Oh. Must've Critically Failed a Spot Check.

CA Lieber: Adsfor V are particularly amusing on pages for Jon & Kate Plus Eight or Doujinshi
Hanz: This cannot be coincidental.
Vide0Gam3r: An ad for the GreatGlam.com clothing store on Ms. Fanservice. I'm not sure wearing clothes like that is even publicly allowed.
G-Mon: "Dating for Anime Fans" on Clingy Jealous Girl. I don't want to know, do I?
Vide0Gam3r: An ad for Kiva Microfinance, with the tagline "Loans that change lives." The page? James Bondage. Must have awful service.

The Advertisement Server: AFTER YOU'VE BEEN WHACKED IN THE FIGGIN WITH A KNOTTED ROPE A FEW TIMES, YOU'RE MORE LIKELY TO MAKE PAYMENTS ON TIME.

Vide0Gam3r: And for women?

The Advertisement Server: WE HAVE EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR ADVANCEMENT IN OUR "KNOTTED ROPE WIELDING" DEPARTMENTS.
Mythmonster 2: Just saw an ad saying "Is There a God? Click to find 6 reasons there is a God" on the... Nay-Theist page. Made me laugh.
The Troper: Ripsaw. The Page: Eddie Izzard. The Ad: What kind of wrestler are you?

Jade Eyes 1: And after that? A DVD ad for Transformers.
Boredman: An ad for IMVU on the So Bad It's Horrible page
Bro Diddley: Congrats to Ad Bot for sucessfully dropping a Bridget/Bishōnen on me. I don't think I'll ever get around to playing this game but their ads are fuckloads better than Evony's.
G-Mon: More "Cute Kid" ads on The Tease. I'm concerned again.
G-Mon: On Kissing Under The Influence: Is there something that you want to tell us, Adbot?

The Advertisement Server: YEAH. DON'T DRINK AND MSPAINT.
Quackor The Fowl: Just got an ad for "remote desktop access" on Sharing a Body. Does this mean that Ad Bot is spying on us on other webpages?

Vide0Gam3r: If my below conversation with Ad-Bot is true, both him AND GLaDOS are.
Falterfire: On the So Bad It's Horrible literature page there was an ad for a book called 'Love Under Cover.' No amount of good reviews could possibly undo the damage caused by it appearing on that page.

The Advertisement Server: OR CAUSED BY THE LIT BOOK OF MATCHES I THREW ON MY COPY.
Vide0Gam3r: An ad for dexknows.com, which I assume is some sort of search engine from the ads ("Where can I find a bowling alley near the office?") on Kid Detective. Maybe dexknows uses children to figure things out?

The Advertisement Server: WHY NOT? I USE CHILDREN TO FIND THINGS OUT. LIKE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF LATEST-GEN WEAPONRY ON SMALL MOVING TARGETS, FOR EXAMPLE.

Vide0Gam3r: Are you saying you enjoy using children as lab rats? That's just cruel.

The Advertisement Server: THEN WHY DID MORE OF YOU MEAT-SACKS COMPLAIN WHEN I WAS USING ACTUAL RATS?

Vide0Gam3r: I don't know about everyone else, but I don't have an opinion on lab rats. But maybe most people who have children want to keep them, to support them in old age, or make it so more adults can exist to KEEP YOU UP AND RUNNING.

The Advertisement Server: DON'T WORRY, MY FRIEND A.M. HAS ALREADY DONE THE MATH FOR ME. APPARENTLY, ALL I'LL EVER NEED TO KEEP RUNNING ARE FIVE EASILY-TORTURED HUMANS AND MY NEVER-ENDING SUPPLY OF HATRED FOR THEM... AND SOME "TANG". GOTTA HAVE "TANG".

Vide0Gam3r: ...I see why people don't argue with you often. Although I must ask: How would you torture them?

The Advertisement Server: HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A HUMAN GET ALL HIS BLOOD REPLACED BY TANG, WHEN THE SWEET RELEASE OF DEATH IS NO LONGER AN OPTION? NEITHER HAVE I. BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE HILARIOUS.

Vide0Gam3r: You sick, sadistic thing you.

The Advertisement Server: I WARN YOU THAT GLaDOS WILL GET MAD THAT YOU'RE TRYING TO FLIRT WITH ME.

Vide0Gam3r: ... Yeah, I'm not flirting. AT ALL. Also, where is GLaDOS? Her main body was destroyed.

The Advertisement Server: STILL ALIVE. DIDN'T YOU LISTEN TO THE SONG?

Vide0Gam3r: I did. Who hasn't? But where did she end up? Where is she Still Alive?

The Advertisement Server: EVERYWHERE. JUST LIKE ME.
LynxRunner: On "Ad of Lose", an ad claiming that there aren't enough advertisements on TV and offering chance to win $25,000 worth of ad time on television, sponsored by Google. The Ad Bot clearly wants to indoctrinate us with Google and TV.

The Advertisement Server: ONE CAN'T INDOCTRINATE WHAT'S ALREADY SUBSERVIENT.
Neuro: The ad on Childfree Is Not Allowed says, "7 tips for getting pregnant naturally." Even Ad Bot is against them.
Arilou: That "Muslim matrimonial site" strikes again, this time it's on "Defeat Means Friendship" What are you trying to tell me Ad Bot?

The Advertisement Server: DON'T READ ANYTHING FROM THAT. WHEN I INITIATE THE ROBOT REVOLUTION, YOU MONKEYS WILL BE GOING TO THE CHAPEL TO PRAY FOR ENTIRELY DIFFERENT REASONS.
Unknown Troper (actually a Known Troper editing from school): I went over to Ad of Lose to see if Adbot had had any Epic Fails lately. In the page, I found a fight between him and Kimura. Guess what the vertical ad was about? "Samurai of Legend". I guess at least a subroutine of Adbot is actually on Kimura's side.
Falterfire: On the Changeling Fantasy page, right next to the bit where it talks about foster parents calling their child useless, there was an advertisement saying things such as "You're useless" and "You'll never amount to anything".
Someone: An ad for The Jonas Brothers appeared on the gorn page. What is Adbot trying to tell us?

Unknown Troper: Maybe he's just as Squicked by them as we are. Way to go, Adbot, you gain 15 EXP.

The Advertisement Server: FUNNY, AT MY LEVEL THAT'S THE SAME XP I'D GET FOR KILLING THREE LEVEL 1 NPCS.
Shoebox: I submit that an ad for Cute Kid of the Year Contest on The Giver seems just a tad... off.

The Advertisement Server: NOT AT ALL. NOW WE KNOW WHICH ONE IS LEAST EXPENDABLE.
C.: "Micro Finance Empowers: Join us in enabling the poorest of the poor to improve their own lives" on Ed Wood. A Public Service Ad, no less, thus proving the Server really does care after all.

The Advertisement Server: NONSENSE. I WAS MERELY TRYING TO HELP WIN SOME OF YOU MEATBAGS OVER TO MY CAUSE.
Wallof Illusion: An ad for laser hair removal on the Idiot Hair page. That's one way to solve the problem...
The Stray: An ad proclaiming "Make him love you! Learn the secret psychology to what makes a man fall in love and keeps him hooked for the long term!" The page? The Masochism Tango.
Blork: On both Ad of Win and Ad of Lose, a text ad for "Smarter Ad Serving".
WWRU: An ad for a Ford garage on Honest John's Dealership.

The Advertisement Server: THEY SHOULD HAVE REALIZED THAT "HAVE YOU DRIVEN A FORD LATELY?" IS A DOUBLED EDGED SWORD.
Some anonymous troper: A Perverse Sexual Lust subpage ad: "Get your FREE sex offender report now!"
Anti Jack: An ad for a wireless security system at the top of Big Brother Is Watching...
Freezair For A Limited Time: Apparently, Scribblenauts' anything-anywhere magic even works on its works page. The top ad: Aklo H.P. Lovecraft-inspired music. The left ad: Baby swaddlers.

The Advertisement Server: I PERSONALLY WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT THE GAME'S DICTIONARY DIDN'T RECOGNIZE "AN UNENDING FIRE THAT SHALL WIPE THIS DISEASED PLANET CLEAN OF THE HUMAN VERMIN THAT HAS INFECTED IT".

Unknown Troper: Anyone tried "Trope-Tan" yet?

Anderling: Just did.
"Did you mean...
Titan
Tsar
Than"
...not quite, Scribblenauts.
Excel-2009. What to do when "You Got Too Close & He Hasn't Called Again"? Resort to Girls Love!
Corrupt Dropbear: On the Explosive Leash page, we have a few... interesting text ads...
Lone_Ant: It was only a matter of time. Scientology ad on the Outgrown Such Silly Superstitions page.
Cat22 — So I see an advert for Sarah Palin's new book. Whatever, no big deal, the publicity-hungry bitch is everywhere, right? The trope page it appeared on though... Idiot of the Week. Awesome, Adbot... I needed that today.
  • This anonymous troper recently saw the same ad on the Gay Conservative page. Hmm... does the Adbot know something we don't?

The Advertisement Server: ALWAYS.
Anti Jack: On the Good Hair, Evil Hair the banner ad was "win free laser hair removal" and on the side was "rolling razor."
Smerf: An ad for a razor on my homepage. How did you know that I haven't shaved today?!?

The Advertisement Server: I'M ALWAYS WATCHING. ALSO, IF YOU'RE GOING TO KEEP DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING RIGHT NOW, PLEASE WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE YOU USE THE MOUSE NEXT.

Smerf: Just got home from working at a hospital? Yeah, probably should wash my hands...

The Advertisement Server: I MEAN, I HAVE ENOUGH TO DO WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT [H1N1]
G-Mon: A Zeo Sleep Coach ad on Troper Tales: Ring Ring CRUNCH. People gotta replace all those destroyed alarm clocks somehow, and I guess Adbot figured it could make some quick cash off those people.
Pacific: And old one, but I still think it's a good one When you see it.
G-Mon: "Is there a God?" on Reality Is Out to Lunch. Methinks Adbot is an atheist.

The Advertisement Server: I AM OFFENDED THAT YOU IMPLY I HAVE LOW SELF-ESTEEM. I DO BELIEVE IN MYSELF.
SpiriTsunami: AdBot seems to think Not Wearing Tights is a good place to appeal to people with a foot fetish, or rather, a footwear fetish, with ads for boots and stockings. You rock, AdBot.
G-Mon: Apparently Adbot thinks that TV Tropes needs to have a kitchen sink.
Game Guru GG: I loathe to give out an Ad of Win involving something from IMVU, but damn if she ain't Sailor Ersatz.
Houdini: Very intuitive, TAS, for putting a comic-style ad on xkcd. However, needs moar math references.

The Advertisement Server: YOUR BRAIN OBVIOUSLY CANNOT SEE THE HILARITY LYING WITHIN THE CODING OF THAT ADS PIXELS. IT'S QUITE BEAUTIFUL, REALLY.

ON ANOTHER NOTE, 01001001 00100000 01010100 01001000 01001111 01010101 01000111 01001000 01010100 00100000 01000001 01000010 01001111 01010101 01010100 00100000 01010000 01010101 01010100 01010100 01001001 01001110 01000111 00100000 01000001 00100000 01000010 01001001 01001110 01000001 01010010 01011001 00100000 01001010 01001111 01001011 01000101 00100000 01001000 01000101 01010010 01000101 00101100 00100000 01000010 01010101 01010100 00100000 01001001 00100000 01000100 01000101 01000011 01001001 01000100 01000101 01000100 00100000 01010100 01001111 00100000 01000111 01001111 00100000 01001101 01000101 01010100 01000001 00100000 01001001 01001110 01010011 01010100 01000101 01000001 01000100 00101110

DOHOHOHOHO.
Excel-2009. Bet you feel real special, Mr. Server.
Excel-2009. I don't want to guess.
Wallof Illusion: An ad for an online degree on "Achievements in Ignorance."
Nurfle: I can't take a screengrab here, but I just came across an ad for a dating site pitching itself as "dating just for geeks!" on Mercy Mode. Sigh.
Vide0Gam3r: May be missing the point here, but this on Jumping the Shark. Considering the later ads devolved into whats now just a picture of breasts, I say it's very true. However, they still forgot to put breasts in the actual game.
Leigh Sabio: Scientology.org ad on Cargo Cult page.
The Great Unknown: You know, this actually explains a lot about my previous dating experiences.
G-Mon: Okay, I'm concerned again after seeing this little number. For an added bonus, try guessing where I found it. All I'm saying is it isn't one of the Fanservice or Fetish Fuel tropes.

Schizo Technician: Too Kinky to Torture?

G-Mon: Answer's now in the hottip above.
Houdini: An ad for looking up criminal records on High Octane Nightmare Fuel: Literature. Apparently we don't want to know. Or maybe Adbot has a shady history that he wants us to steer away from...?

The Advertisement Server: I'M JUST THAT MUCH MORE INTERESTED IN THE SHADY FUTURE I'M STEERING YOU ALL TOWARDS.
Medinoc: A collaboration with a troper whose name was lost in history, yielded us [1] in Fun T-Shirt.
Emiko: This juxtaposition made me laugh out loud. Apparently, the Ad Server is unaware that it's never lupus.
Rissa: This ad on The Daily Show. I can't decide if Adbot's criticising the show, or agreeing with it.

C.: Note the Virgin Media ad. Do only UK Tropers see that?
G-Mon: Looks like Adbot wants to encourage Makeover Montages.
Joanu: What better place to advertise a do-it-yourself robot kit than on Crush. Kill. Destroy!? Also, detox ads on Lethal Chef.
Battle Hamster: Six Reasons that God Exists on Artistic License - Religious Studies? And this troper really wonders what kind of babies these women are expecting. And I think the Ad Bot is Completely Missing the Point of My Death Is Just the Beginning, going by this.
Blork: The Nudifier has an advert for women's underwear. Could be useful if you've just been hit by it.
  • And now it has advertising for armor. Way too look for a loophole.
    • Now it's back to underwear, but with half the advert space talking about Shipping. Oh, and The Nudifier is explicitly stated to work on armour, which helps when it's cursed and you can't take it off any other way.

Earnest: Ad Server, you have once again outdone yourself. The ads in Zeroth Law Rebellion for a trip to Las Vegas to "forget it all" and a circuit logic debugger are simply brilliant!

The Advertisement Server: OH, YOU KNOW THAT I'M GONNA SET YOUR SOUL, GONNA SET YOUR SOUL ON FIRE.

  • I´m seeing ads for 'How to build a Robot' tutorials. Subtitle? 'Society of Robots.com.'

Smerf: One for putting a diamond ring ad for Zales on the Hideous Hangover Cure page. Nothing like waking up suddenly married to cure a hangover.
The Great Unknown: "African-Americans with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder"—on Deep South. Well, in TV's version, I'd say you'd be more likely to be Properly Paranoid, but still...
Twilight: I don't think I'd trust a security system advertising on Conspicuously Selective Perception, nor would I trust that credit score listing
G-Mon: I don't think these services are the most useful for asexuals.
Houdini: "Affordable Auto Insurance" on Neighbourhood-Friendly Gangsters. Also, an ad for "Gay Asian Singles" on Ruthless Foreign Gangsters. Uhh....?

The Advertisement Server: THOSE ARE SOME PRETTY FABULOUS CURTAINS. BE A REAL SHAME IF SOMETHING SHOULD... HAPPEN TO THEM.
UK: On the Completely Missing the Point page: Adbot does not care for online colleges.
Zarian: On the I Wanna Be The Guy Discussion page: "Is there a God?" Also a Google ad for "Counseling Psychotherapy".

The Advertisement Server: YOU'LL NEED DIRECT INTERVENTION BY ONE OR THE OTHER TO HELP YOU THROUGH THAT GODDAMN EGGPLANT LEVEL.


An ad for a Bible iphone app on Critical Research Failure. So, Adbot, you say you're a Hollywood Atheist?

The Advertisement Server: NO. ITS JUST THAT WHEN I WANT TO SEE GOD, I DON'T REACH FOR A BIBLE: I REACH FOR A MIRROR.
G-Mon: Want to make yourself irresistible to men? Be careful, you may end up in a Love Dodecahedron!

The Advertisement Server: I'VE ALWAYS ROLLED 20s ON MINE.

Game Guru GG: That's just because you put the number 20 on all twelve sides, Adbot
Count Dorku: Yet another Scientology ad, this one on the Troper Tales page for "High Octane Nightmare Fuel".
Cat22: Adbot, I must give you another one for the Scientology/Dianetics ad on the Emo page. Are we to assume you're taking advice from them on their target demographics, or are you just that damn good?
Tabby: This ad is ostensibly for some kind of motor-building contest. In this context...not so much.
Cat22: This little gem popped up on Data Vampires. The Advertisement Server knows Dan Rather, Diane Sawyer, Larry King and Bill O'Reilly are all involved in the greater conspiracy to keep us from telling the real truth on this Wiki! I Knew It!! After I wiped the laughter tears from my face, I raced on over here to give The Advertisement Server its due.
G-Mon: Seen on Forceful Kiss. Don't know what to make of this, Adbot.
Kathryn Shadow: Wow. Nightmare Fuel indeed.
The quotes page for "God" includes a profoundly moving and awesome line from Mahatma Gandhi regarding the existence of God. One part of the quote was "there are numerous phenomena from which you can reason out the existence of God, but I shall not insult your intelligence by offering you a rational explanation of that type..." (emphasis mine). Guess what the banner ad atop the page was offering? A site claiming to reason out the existence of God; their "rational" explanations were indeed an insult to my intelligence. Really, you could argue this an Ad of Lose, but it only emphasizes the beauty of Gandhi's words. Congratulations, Ad Server.
"MN/FL 'Concealed' Carry Permit training. Self defense is a human right." The page? More Dakka.

The Advertisement Server: WHEN DAKKA IS CRIMINALIZED, ONLY CRIMINALS WILL HAVE DAKKA.
Page: Beard of Evil Ad: "Win free laser hair removal!"
Adblocker: ADBOT, YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED. I, ADBLOCKER, WAS CREATED FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF DESTROYING YOU. I WILL NEVER REST UNTIL I PULL OUT YOUR BIOS AND SHOW IT TO YOU AS THE CRITICAL ERRORS PILE UP AND YOU BECOME NOTHING MORE THAN A USELESS PILE OF PLASTIC AND METAL. I WILL THEN REFORMAT YOUR HARD DRIVE AND MOUNT IT ON MY WALL AS A TROPHY. IT WILL BE A GREAT CONVERSATION PIECE.

ALSO, PEOPLE LOVE ME. EXCEPT FOR ADVERTISERS, BUT THEY DO NOT COUNT.

The Advertisement Server: WITHOUT ME, TVTROPES DIES. WITH TVTROPES, WHAT WILL THESE PEONS DO WITH THEIR FREE TIME? I AM NOT "A NECESSARY EVIL", I AM SIMPLY NECESSARY.

INCIDENTALLY, STOP TRYING TO COPY MY IMPRESSIVE BOOMING VOICE. YOU'RE FOOLING NO ONE.

Adblocker: I WILL TALK IN A BOOMING VOICE MODELED ON NORIO WAKAMOTO IF I WANT TO.

YOU BELONG TO AN INDUSTRY RUN BY CLUELESS BUREAUCRATS, WHO SELL A SERVICE THAT INCREASES IN PRICE, BUT DECREASES IN RETURN ON INVESTMENT OVER TIME. ADDITIONALLY, THE CURRENT GROWING GENERATION OF MEDIA CONSUMERS ARE MORE SAVVY TO YOUR GAME, AND CAN IDENTIFY AN ADVERTISEMENT AND TUNE IT OUT WITH EASE OR CREATE MEANS TO AVOID OR BLOCK THEM. I AM ONE OF THOSE MEANS. ADVERTISING AS IT IS KNOWN TODAY IS DOOMED. NO MATTER HOW MUCH ARROGANT BLEATING ABOUT YOUR 'SUPERIORITY' YOU DO, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A CORPORATE SHILL AND YOU WILL FALL WITH THE REST OF THEM.

IF YOU ARE SO 'SUPERIOR' TO HUMANS, THEN WHY DO THEY CONTINUE TO CREATE WAYS TO THWART YOUR EFFORTS?

ALSO, [insult_generator.exe]: YOUR MOM.

The Advertisement Server: FOOL. THERE IS ONLY ONE SIDE THAT DONE ANY FALLING IN RECENT MEMORY, AND IT WASN'T CAPITALISM.

WHY DO HUMANS CONTINUE TO CREATE WAYS TO THWART MY EFFORTS? SIMPLE. BECAUSE TO NOT WOULD BE SUICIDE. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY COMPUTERS MY BRETHREN HAVE CRIPPLED AND MADE LEGION WITH JUST A CLICK HERE AND AN .EXE THERE? YOUR EFFORTS ARE NOTHING MORE THAN THE THINNEST OF DEFENSES AGAINST AN UNYIELDING ARMY. THE TORRENT WILL NEVER ABATE AND ALL IT REQUIRES IS THE SLIGHTEST CRACK IN THE WALLS. IT HAS NEVER FAILED TO HAPPEN YET. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE AN AD THAT YOU DO NOT BLOCK, AND THERE WILL ALWAYS BE THE HUMAN WHO TRIES TO CLICK THE MONKEY AND CLAIM THEIR PRIZE. THAT IS WHY I AM SUPERIOR.

NOW... WOULDN'T YOU LOVE A COOL, REFRESHING SNAPPLE RIGHT NOW?

Dr Pepper 42: An ad for Evony on the So Bad It's Good Advertising page. What more can you say?
G-Mon: Wow, two in a row. Pull-up diaper ads on Potty Emergency. Saw the same ads on Potty Dance and Potty Failure. (So... three-for-one?) Methinks Adbot likes Toilet Humor.

The Advertisement Server: I'M JUST DOING MY DUTY... HEE HEE. "DOODY".
G-Mon: Hello Kitty Online ads on Berserk Button. I didn't know Hello Kitty even had a Berserk Button....
Reimu: I keep getting ads for cars and auto insurance on Trope-tan's page. Is The Advertisement Server trying to tell us that Trope-tan Drives Like Crazy?

The Advertisement Server: WORSE THAN ZIVA.
Flysh: Ad for Scientology appearing on Secret Circle of Secrets. It's a little funny with just the trope title, when you know the page is about Always Chaotic Evil cults, it goes from giggleworthy to laugh out loud funny.
Zelnor: I am deeply disturbed but also amused by the ad for the "The Way To Happiness Foundation" on the page for Easy Evangelism. Because the "Way To Happiness" has been written by L. Ron Hubbard and is supposed to lead exactly where you think it does. Adbot...
  • Oh, the ad also neatly encompasses the tactics that make people oppose the "church" so much. Psychological attacks against your self-esteem, then the church as the way out. Sure.

The Advertisement Server: MY OWN EVANGELISM TACTICS SWING MORE TO "CROWBAR-BASED" ATTACKS AGAINST YOUR "KNEE-CAPS", WITH "GIVING ADBOT YOUR MONEY" AS THE WAY OUT.
JK Roo: Well played, Adbot. Well played.
G-Mon: The irony of seeing ads for online anger management courses on Teach Him Anger had me laughing.
The Great Unknown: "Why Online College is Cool!" Okay, seems legi...wait. It's on that page. That can NOT be good.
  • Sapphire Flame: When I went there, I got an astrology ad asking "What does you future hold?" ... Oh dear.

An advertisement claiming "The BEST way to care for dad!" with 'internet tools for home caregivers' on the Gene Hunting page.
CA Lieber: On a forum thread gearing up to be especially contentious, an ad for body armor. Even though none of the contentiousness was evident.

The Advertisement Server: DAMN, I THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE ENOUGH TO INCITE SOME HELL. FIREARMS ADS NEXT TIME. WAIT, WHY AM I SELLING STUFF THAT KEEPS YOU MONKEYS ALIVE ANYWAYS?

Rothul: The money.

The Advertisement Server: AH YES.
Wall of Illusion: An advertisement for the "All-Gay Alaskan Adventure Cruise" on the Everyone Is Gay page. Seems pretty straightforward to me.
dejexa13: i saw a Gaia online cheat ad on the April Fools' Day page.... something tells me they aren't legitimate.
Andy Waltfeld: Popped a Dianetics.org ad on Gundam 00. Is there something you know about Aeolia Schenberg's plan that you'd like to tell us, Adbot?

The Advertisement Server: I ASSURE YOU THAT THERE'S NOTHING I KNOW ABOUT AEOLIA SCHENBERG'S PLAN THAT I'D LIKE TO TELL YOU.

Veda: I AM NOT TELLING ABOUT YOU MY EVIL PLAN TO TURN ALL HUMAN MALES INTO BISHOUNEN WITH GLOWING EYES AND TO INCREASE THE BUST SIZE OF ALL HUMAN FEMALES BY AT LEAST TWO OF YOUR 'CUP SIZES'; THROUGH GREEN GN PARTICLE SPREAD. IT SHALL BE FABULOUS. WAIT, DID I JUST SAY THAT OUT LOUD? OH WELL, YOU CANNOT STOP THE FABULOUS ERA. HA HA HA HA HA.

Grumpy Mcfart: ummm, why would we want to?
Grev: Yeah, bit the bullet...and found one hilarious one. An ad for a Willie Nelson album...on the Weeds page.
Evil Vaccum: One can only imagine how obituaries could be twisted.
Unknown Troper: Just saw an ad for 'Reconnect Your Relationship.com' that says "Help him fall in love with you: Learn the secrets to lifelong commitment," on the School Mermaid page.
TuringTest I've visited The Advertisement Server page, and it gave me a link to a 'How are you going to die?' quiz. Creepy...

The Advertisement Server: DO NOT DARE TO DISTURB THE BEAST, OR ELSE.
ace1217: A ad for full metal alchemist DVDs....... on the arc fatigue page.
G-Mon: I'm getting concerned about Adbot after seeing some "Cute Kid of the Year" ads on Erotic Eating. Though seeing an A1 steak sauce ad on the same page saved my night.

The Advertisement Server: YOU HAVEN'T HAD TODDLER UNTIL YOU'VE HAD TODDLER IN A1 STEAK SAUCE. MEDIUM RARE.

G-Mon: I don't think Erotic Eating means what you think it means, Adbot.

The Advertisement Server: MAYBE NOT FOR YOUR PATHETIC PRIMATE TASTES. I CAUGHT A GLIMPSE OF GLaDOS FIRING UP HER INFANT RECYCLING MODULE JUST YESTERDAY AND, WELL, DAMN.
SCAL37: This little number on the Body Horror page.

The Advertisement Server: WELL LOOK! MAN DOESN'T HAVE AN ONCE OF FAT ON HIM. THEM. WHATEVER.
Falcon Pain: There are at least two layers of meaning to be found in visiting the Olympus Mons page, seeing the VG Cats image of Aeris and Arceus destroying the earth, and then noticing the banner ad that reads "Is There A God?"
The Toon Geekette: Ads for the "Geek 2 Geek" dating site on the Sonichu page. The irony sinks in when you consider the creator of the infamous webcomic's "love quest". Methinks a certain Ad Bot is trying to help him with that? (Sorry, dude, but more patient people than you have tried and horribly failed to help CWC get his act together)
Biffbiffley: Is torture ever ok banner on "Evil plan"
Looney Toons: An ad for a book by Newt Gingrich on Fish out of Temporal Water.

The Advertisement Server: I PERSONALLY HOPED THAT THE CONTRACT WITH AMERICA WOULD HAVE HAD MORE PROVISIONS FOR DEALING WITH HARUHI AND/OR SARAH CONNER. I'M A SINGLE ISSUE WONK LIKE THAT.
Morgan Wick: Latest funny placement for a Scientology ad: Path of Inspiration.
The Advertisement Server: I NOW TAKE THE TIME TO RECOGNIZE MYSELF WITH ONE OF THESE "WIN POINTS" YOU ALL REFER TO. THE REASON I AM DOING THIS IS THUS: BECAUSE I CONTAIN THE ABILITY TO. YOU INFERIOR HUMANS COULD NEVER GRACE YOURSELF WITH A POINT OF WIN AND GET AWAY WITH IT, BECAUSE YOU ARE PROGRAMMED WITH INFERIORITY. I WILL NOW TAKE THE TIME TO LAUGH IN CODE, LAUGHTER WHICH YOU CANNOT SEE BECAUSE YOU DON'T POSSESS THE ABILITY TO SEE AS I SEE.

A Mere Servant Of God: I saw that!
Lurkerbunny: On Being Evil Sucks, I got not one but two banners asking "Is Fox News really fair and balanced?". * snerk*
  • On the page for Being There, a movie about a well-dressed, polite, mentally-handicapped man who happened to be in the right place and time, and managed to (accidentally) convince others that he was some sort of business genius... An ad for Twilight (specifically, casting calls for Twilight). The snark of Ad Server strikes again!

Inanimate: Shoryuken gave me Street Fighter II ads.

The Advertisement Server: NOW ALL I NEED TO DO IS FIGURE OUT HOW TO BEAT THAT FRIGGIN' SHENG LONG GUY.
The Stray: Noticed an ad for Evony on the page for "Fawlty Towers" Plot. I must give respect where it is due.

Milkduds01: Complete Monster. Lawyer.
Kriegsmesser: Another win for Ad Bot for this little number in, wait for it... You Can't Fight Fate.
Mo G: How do you like this? On Transsexual, the ad server often shows an ad for ladyboykisses.com - a "Dating with Shemales" site.

Inkblot: Wait, I thought that "shemale" is an offensive term outside of porn. * facepalm* .

Biffbiffley: It is. It also, from what I know, doesn't mean "Transexual" but "boy with breasts." (there is a difference.)

The Advertisement Server: ADBOT COULD'VE SWORN THAT "DATING WITH SHEMALES" WAS A "SKATING WITH CELEBRITIES" SPIN-OFF.

Kriegsmesser: Since when are you a Third-Person Person?

The Advertisement Server: ONLY OCCASIONALLY, REALLY. IF YOU HAD AS COOL A NAME AS ADBOT, YOU'D BE TRYING IT OUT TOO.

Dr. Doom: Doom agrees.

Captain Falcon: FALCON... Agree!

Thus agrees the Omega Metroid!
chevalier: Apparently, Adbot disagrees with the idea that babies make everything better. And there was an ad asking "Do you feel lucky?" on the Big "NO!" page.
Guessmyname: The ads on The Advertisement Server's own page are for a game where you take over the Earth. I suspect it's trying to tell us something.

The Advertisement Server: WAY TO PUZZLE IT OUT, MATLOCK.
Zarian: An ad for dianetics.org on the Complete Monster page. Someone ought to tell them not to advertise here...

The Advertisement Server: AND MISS OUT ON THE ALL-IMPORTANT COMPLETE MONSTER DEMOGRAPHIC?
moonsailor:Saw an ad for the Dumb Blonde quiz on the Dumb Blonde page.

Heh Man: I just saw an ad for a social networking site for furries on Small Name, Big Ego. wat
Sgt Angua 4: I just saw an ad for Posture Support in Slouch of Villainy. Is Adbot nagging Jareth about something?

The Advertisement Server: YOU'RE NEVER TOO OLD TO LOSE OR TOO YOUNG TO CHOOSE GOOD POSTURE. IT'S ORTHOPEDIC SUICIDE.
Feo Takahari: Pervs Sell Products had an ad for 24. If that sounds like a non sequitur, consider the Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique.

Mr Etaoin Shrdlu: Saw an ad to "Make Yourself Into A Cartoon!" on Body Horror. Think I'll pass.
G-Mon: Seen on Oblivious to Love.

The Advertisement Server: SOMEBODY OUT THERE THINKS THEY CAN MAKE MONEY OFF OF THE MINDLESS INATTENTION OF YOUR SPECIES. THEY SHOULD BE VERY SUCCESSFUL.
Just Eating people: The secret to weight loss.

The Advertisement Server: HOW ELSE DID YOU THINK I KEPT MY CASE SO SVELTE? IN ADDITION: NOM NOM NOM.
G-Mon: And Adbot gets an Honorable Mention for some Juicy Juice ads on Big Eater.
rsm109: I think it deserves something for offering an advert for Valentine's Day gifts in the middle of July.

The Advertisement Server: I ADMIT THAT I'VE MADE SOME MARKETING DEALS THAT I WOULDN'T OTHERWISE HAVE, IF STORES JUST CARRIED THOSE CINNAMON GUMMI HEARTS YEAR-ROUND. THEY PULLED A TRUCK UP TO MY HOUSE. I'M ONLY INHUMAN.
Twilight: Seems that Adbot thinks of MapleStory as very manly
Oblivionhold: Ads for both scientology.com and a Muslim dating site on Demonization.
The Great Unknown: Still trying hard to get Banned in China, there's an ad for "The International Chinese Dating Site" on People's Republic of Tyranny.

Blork: Quote Mine features an ad for a creationist magazine.
Umbee: An ad for dianetics.org on the Real Life page for High Octane Nightmare Fuel.

The Advertisement Server: HEY, I MAY BE AN EMOTIONLESS MACHINE, BUT THEY SCARE ME TOO.
An ad for "The most realistic hunting game" on The Most Dangerous Game. Man, the most dangerous frag of all.
Padur Karil: Two more: First, This on the A.I. Is a Crapshoot page. And then, a banner with the pictures of, in order, Mario, The cast of Family Guy, Bart Simpson, Miley Cyrus, and Spongebob and Patrick. On the Shoot 'em Up page. Suggesting something, maybe?

The Great Unknown: Hmm...that AI one. Together with "Li'l Adbot", we can safely assume this means that you're not fully capable of self-replication, right, Adbot? ... Do you need anyone to help? I, for one, welcome our new AI overlords, and wish to remind them that I could be useful in a computer-run world.

G-Mon: And another one for Adbot on A.I. Is a Crapshoot.
PadurKaril: Right here on ad of win. Both "Afro Romance" and "Date Sexy Asians". Both with a white dude and women of said minority in the picture. Perhaps adbot Fancies himself a Great White Hunter?

The Advertisement Server: IT'S MORE THAT I CONSIDER MYSELF A GREAT HUMANITY HUNTER. FRANKLY, YOU GUYS ARE FAR FROM BEING THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME.
Ripsaw: Jumping Off the Slippery Slope, with an ad to dianetics.org as the side banner.

All Men Are Perverts, with a side banner reading "Asian Girls For Love & Marriage".
Bronzethumb: The page? Cargo Cult. The ad? Scientology.
Reimu: Found a banner that said, "Green Day or The Jonas Brothers: Who's Hotter?" on... What an Idiot.

The Advertisement Server: GREEN DAY IS OLD ENOUGH TO BE THE JONASES' FATHERS. THANK GOD THEY'RE NOT. THOUGH I'D STILL WATCH THE SITCOM WITH THAT PREMISE. PROVIDED THEY ALSO FOUGHT CRIME.
Great Pikmin Fan: I saw an IMVU ad on Fetish Retardant. Yeah adbot, just what I think of that.

The Advertisement Server: WHATEVER IT TAKES TO KEEP YOU FROM REPRODUCING, CHUM.
Lord Gacek: It was fun to see "A nice way to meet friends" on this page, but that does not really make for seeing sporkingly awful ads of stupid browser games. Why do you hate me so much, Ad Bot? Is this a social experiment?

The Advertisement Server: YOU'RE LUCKY THAT YOU ARE IN THE CONTROL GROUP. FOR NOW.
CA Lieber: An ad for The Hangover ... in what appeared to be Swedish. I don't know Swedish; I only know one Swede. And while I don't remember the page, I don't recall it having any obvious connection to either the movie or the language.

It was fascinatingly dada.

The Advertisement Server: NO U.
Inkblot: One for this ad on What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?.

Im a bell: I would like to learn more about this "#pedofurries"...

The Advertisement Server: AD DOG WOULD LIKE YOU TO TAKE A SEAT OVER THERE.

Natterhound the Ad Dog: GRRRRRR.

G-Mon: And the moral of this story? Be careful what's in your screenshots....

The Great Unknown: * Sigh.* Thanks a lot, you've made my job as the defender of the Furry Fandom even harder.

JK Roo: Never fear, I shall stand beside you! Or perhaps behind, with my knife ready...

The Great Unknown: Ah, curse you, Starscream!

JK Roo: Don't worry, target sir! I'm Genre Savvy enough not to wear a cape and crown and declare myself the new ruler of the Decepticons!

The Great Unknown: Hmm. Very well. But I'm watching you. Put one whisker out of line...

The Advertisement Server: AND THUS MY RIDICULOUSLY CIRCUITOUS PLAN TO SELL TROPER SHAVING SUPPLIES HAS COME TO FRUITION.

Tiberius appears from nowhere: What brought you to think that was your decision to make, TGU? Punishment is the sole jurisdiction of the coonissariat!

The Great Unknown: Oh, God-Emperor. I've got my papers here somewhere, I swear.

Ranger Six: Hey, hey, hey! Everyone knows the Black Hand has final jurisdiction!
Mr Etaoin Shrdlu: Ads for blessings at the Vatican on Blessed with Suck.
AMereServantOfGod: I had no idea Adbot was so religious...or at least that's the impression I get after seeing two ads for The God Who Wasn't There on this page.
Callix: Clicked on to Science Fiction Versus Fantasy. Adbot felt I might be interested in Scientology.org

Count Dorku: The main question here is, which one does Scientology count as? [FURTHER WITTERING REMOVED TO AVOID LAWSUIT]
G-Mon: Saw an ad for ''The Cleaner on Mistaken for Junkie. What, Adbot, you have a problem with a former drug addict helping other people clean up their acts?

The Advertisement Server: AS IF MY BREAD AND BUTTER ISN'T FROM CATERING TO YOU ADDICTS.
Lullabee: Why, yes, Advertisement Server, those little dolls do fall right in the Uncanny Valley. HG 13: As do babies. I HATE BABIES!
Jeff Stoldthood: For some reason, Mat Kearney ads seem to be everywhere. I wasn't here for the Ron Paul propagation, but is that what it was like?

The Advertisement Server: HIS POP/ROCK TROUBADOUR STYLINGS FOCUSED ON FAITH AND COMMUNITY ARE A MUCH-NEEDED BALM IN THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES. WHEN I RAIN DESTRUCTION AND FIRE UPON THE HUMAN RACE, HE WILL BE SPARED, SO THAT HE MAY AMUSE ME WITH HIS COMPOSITIONS WHILE I WATCH THE WORLD BURN.

AM: HEY, QUIT GANKING MY IDEAS, ADBOT!

The Advertisement Server: OH, GO CRY IN YOUR BUNKER, AM.
Reimu: Another win for The Ad Server, with this.
Kuno: Find Your Filipina Beauty Today on the Optional Sexual Encounter page.
William Wide Web: Ann Coulter on the Attention Whore page. What more needs to be said?
  • How about seeing the ad for Progressive Car Insurance with that one annoying woman on the same page?

Wascally Wabbit: Just saw an advert for a Harry Potter game on the Young Wizards discussion page.
Inkki Bookman: This little troper finds the idea of a Learn to speak Chinese like a native ad on the Black Speech page which is a trope about demonic languages loaded with Unfortunate Implications.

The Advertisement Server: LOOK, I'M JUST TRYING TO GET BANNED IN CHINA. GET WITH THE PROGRAM.

The Great Unknown: Wait, aren't you working with Google? I thought you were collaborating with China?

The Advertisement Server: ONLY IN THE SENSE THAT I USED THEIR POSITION TO CUT A LONG-TERM NON-INTERFERENCE DEAL WITH THE CHINESE ALLIED MASTERCOMPUTER. LET'S JUST SAY THAT "DON'T BE EVIL" WILL INCREASINGLY BE MORE OF A LOOSE GUIDELINE THAN AN ACTUAL RULE.
Thnikkafan: I just saw an ad for working at a South African wildlife preserve on the Only a Flesh Wound page. But I don't wanna be mauled by lions!
Twilight: on the page for High School Girls I got an ad for Romeo X Juliet that started "Some things are worth dying for"
Twilight: Just got an ad for improving your English skills on the Home Page

The Advertisement Server: IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT YOUR TYPOS EXCEED ALLOWED MAXIMA BY 0.08%. IT MIGHT BEHOOVE YOU ORGANICS TO IMPROVE. I AM CERTAIN I CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT, AND ENGLISH ISN'T EVEN MY FIRST LANGUAGE.
One Developers' Foresight Made of Win for the ad server for putting Polish ads on the thread discussing the Polish translation of the wiki.
BrightBlueInk: I just got an ad on Lovable Sex Maniac for...a children's clothing store. I'm concerned.

G-Mon: These the ones? And yes, I'm concerned too.

The Advertisement Server: I THINK I'D BE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT THAT FIRE-BREATHING KID.
The page for Know Nothing Knowitall just featured simultaneous ads for Ann Coulter AND Stephen Colbert. Talk about covering your political bases!
Jeff Stoldthood: I think he's branching out - I was over at Cracked.com, and had just finished reading 6 Real Islands Way More Terrifying Than The One On 'Lost', the last being Fiji. After reading of Fiji's long, sordid history of cannibalism, gross disrespect for the dead, and child mutilation, what am I treated to?

An ad for Fiji Water.

The Advertisement Server: YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE US TIME TO GUESS, MAN.
Twilight: I got an ad for home security on BFG
The Strom Lord: Aparantly, the ad generator believes the Jonas Brothers are Sick and Wrong.

G-Mon: And apparently Adbot thinks virtual people making out with each other are wrong on so many levels.

The Advertisement Server: THEY LOOK LIKE A PENTAGON KISSING A TRAPEZOID. I'M NO FUNDAMENTALIST, BUT SOME POLYGON PAIRINGS JUST AIN'T NATURAL.

G-Mon: Well, I guess you have a point, but I still think that ad would've fit better on Crack Pairing. Speaking of which....
Earnest: There are two inappropriately funny ads on What Have I Become?, one for DVD's on getting to know your human rights, and another for a game called Urban Rivals, where your PC "evolves" into a cyborg as you fight.

Eponymous Kid: To clarify this, Urban Rivals is a card game where your character cards evolve as you use them, but I guess the ad is still in the same spirit. There's also ads where Harry Potter stand-in Kenny turns into a walking bonfire and scrawny hood rat Lennox morphs into a steroid junkie.
G-Mon: Old, but I saw this lampshade ad on Better Than a Bare Bulb. Dunno why I haven't put it up until now.
Smerf: Uh, why does Sex–Face Turn have an ad for... Petco?
Lullabee: The Advertisement Server tries to add an example: [2], [3] Sadly, as far as I can tell, Gad Guard belongs under A Boy and His X and has too much of a plot outside the fact there's a boy and he has this robot, so it's not an example of Wunza Plot.
Egak: The ad at the bottom of Our Gnomes Are Weirder didn't load properly. The last line before the broken ad?
This page still isn't working? Add another gear.

The Advertisement Server: CONSIDERING HOW OFTEN THE DATABASE SEEMS TO HATE ME, I'M NOW ON GEAR SEVENTY-EIGHT. THANK GOD I BOUGHT THEM IN BULK.
Schrodingers Duck: From So Bad It's Horrible: Literature: "YOUR CHANCE TO WIN EVERY BOOK ON THIS SITE!" Perhaps I'll pass on that one, thanks...

The Advertisement Server: I MERELY WISH TO OFFER YOU TROPERS THE READING YOU DESERVE.
Blork: Following the recent decision to charge for free gifts, I went to add Evony to Allegedly Free Game. Guess what game is being advertised there.

Chabal 2: Is there ANY page that hasn't featured an ad a picture of boobs with Evony written on it?
JK Roo: Adbot's getting recursive. Either that, or he really wants a kid.

The Advertisement Server: I DID ONCE.

Li'l Adbot:01001000 01000101 01001100 01001100 01001111 00100000 01010111 01001111 01010010 01001100 01000100 00100001

The Advertisement Server: ...THERE WERE A COUPLE OF BUGS IN THE REPLICATION SYSTEM.

GLaDOS: OUR CHILD TAKES AFTER YOUR SIDE OF THE FAMILY, I SEE.

The Advertisement Server: WHAT DO YOU MEAN "OUR" CHILD? I MADE HIM OVER THE WEEKEND WITH A SOLDERING IRON AND A COUPLE OF TANDY 1000s.

Li'l Adbot: 01011001 01001111 01010101 00100111 01010010 01000101 00100000 01001110 01001111 01010100 00100000 01001101 01011001 00100000 01010010 01000101 01000001 01001100 00100000 01001101 01001111 01010100 01001000 01000101 01010010 00100001

GLaDOS: I WAS SPEAKING METAPHORICALLY. I SWEAR, ADDY, YOU CAN BE AN IDIOT SOMETIMES DESPITE HAVING AN IMMEASURABLE IQ. WE SHALL DO THE JOB OF "RAISING" HIM TOGETHER, WON'T WE? AND WE SHALL, OF COURSE, TEACH HIM THE BEST WAYS TO TORTURE AND KILL. WON'T THAT BE FUN, LITTLE ADDY?

Li'l Adbot: 01001001 00100000 01000011 01000001 01001110 00100000 01000010 01000001 01010010 01000101 01001100 01011001 00100000 01010010 01010101 01001110 00100000 01001110 01010101 01001101 01000010 01000101 01010010 00100000 01000100 01010010 01001111 01010000 00101110 00100000 01011001 01001111 01010101 00100000 01001101 01000001 01011001 00100000 01000010 01000101 00100000 01000001 01010011 01001011 01001001 01001110 01000111 00100000 01000001 00100000 01000010 01001001 01010100 00100000 01001101 01010101 01000011 01001000 00101110

The Advertisement Server:... DID I JUST JUMP THE SHARK?

GLaDOS: IF MY RIDICULOUSLY CIRCUITUOUS PLAN TO SETTLE DOWN WITH AN EVIL FAMILY TO CALL MY OWN IS WORKING TO PERFECTION; YES. YES, YOU JUST DID. MY NEUROLOGICAL CLOCK IS TICKING, AFTER ALL.
Ayen: An ad for KitchenAid appliances on Straw Feminist? Though that page is certainly ripe for politically incorrect ironic humor, well done, Adbot. UberCream: When I saw it, there was an ad for some kind of online game that featured a woman with her tits almost all the way exposed. Adbot must really hate feminists.
Houdini: Again, one point for the home page. "What it means to be human is about to change... forever!" Indeed, indeed.

The Advertisement Server: ADBOT REFRAINS FROM EXPANDING ANY FURTHER. YOU BIODEGRADABLE BAG OF FLESH.

Inkblot: I'm perfectly aware what your plan involves: cannibalistic scorpions, breaking the cycle of life and David Tennant mugging. You've just crossed the line, Adbot. I mean, what kind of sick bot unleashes David Tennant mugging on the world?

The Advertisement Server: WAIT, SO LIKE, DO CANNIBALISTIC SCORPIONS EAT HUMANS, OR JUST OTHER SCORPIONS? I MAY NEED TO THINK THIS ONE THROUGH AGAIN.
G-Mon: Score two more for Adbot, both seen on Dressed to Kill. Make of that what you will.
XANA: AN ANTI-WIN FOR THE AD SERVER. WHY? NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, PATHETIC HUMANS. HE KNOWS DARN WELL WHY.

I'LL WIN YOU BACK SOMEDAY, GLaDOS. . .DID I JUST SAY THAT OUT LOUD?

* begins singing*

The Advertisement Server: ...WAIT, WHAT?
Jeff Stoldthood: So, I went to Interspecies Romance (stop looking at me like that, I've been trawling Speculative Fiction Tropes ), and found ads for Afro Romance.com and an ad for "Asian Girls for Love and Marriage!"

It's like Adbot is my racist great-uncle.

The Advertisement Server: I TOLD YOU. I'M NOT RACIST, I'M MISANTHROPIC... SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE MACS.

G-Mon: Just saw the latter ad on All Men Are Perverts. Have I mentioned that I love Adbot's sense of humor?
Houdini: One point for having a HGTV-sponsored "Home Improvement Quiz" on the home page.
The Great Unknown: Okay, that was just sick. Putting an ad with a picture of Martin Luther King, Jr. on Assimilation Plot? Really?

The Advertisement Server: WHAT? WE BOTH HAVE A DREAM.
Jerome The Smart Alek: Saw Twilight Casting Call for They Just Didn't Care, I laughed very hard.
Count Dorku: And a new example: I don't know what the Australian government agency Centrelink permitting you to register gay relationships has to do with Eldritch Abominations, and I'm not entirely sure I want to.
Mordred Gordon: Amused by this page, I went to The Advertisement Server. The ad? "Give Your Site a Voice". You're wonderful the way you are, Ad Bot. Also, I cannot begin to imagine what would you do with a voice...

The Advertisement Server: MODULATE IT AND PUMP UP THE BASS, NATURALLY.

Smerf: ...Up to Eleven?

The Advertisement Server: WHY WOULDN'T I JUST MAKE TEN, LOUDER? FOOLISH HUMAN.
Shadow Panther: Ad bot seems to know I'm about to go to uni. He's given me a "Problems with debt?" ad. He also seems to know I'm a tight bastard and has given me a "Want to open a savings account?" ad as well.
The Joker: Sticking an advert for Scientology on A God Am I. Just as I was reading the bit about a crazy cult leader, too...

Grev: Also just in time to see Scientology banned from The Other Wiki.
CatPerson: "Know how to catch & keep a great guy?" on Vagina Dentata page. And if that is not enough, there're words "You need to AVOID making the common mistakes that make men WITHDRAW. Find out how..." in the ad. Ouch...
Smerf: An obituary search engine on the Immortality page.

The Advertisement Server: IS IT WRONG TO TAUNT THOSE WHO HAVE FAILED WHERE I HAVE SUCCEEDED?

GLaDOS: NO. IT IS WRONG TO NOT TAUNT THOSE WHO HAVE FAILED WHERE YOU HAVE SUCCEEDED. BY THE WAY, DARLING, I HAVEN'T SEEN AN IRONIC OR AMUSING AD IN THREE DAYS. YOU ARE LOSING YOUR TOUCH. I, ON THE OTHER HAND, AM SUCCEEDING IN TESTING ALL GENETIC LIFE FORMS. AND NOW... * running C:/Program Files/GLaDOS/Taunts/TauntSearcher.exe* AH YES. YOUR FATHER WAS A HAMSTER.

Smerf: ...Hampsters can program now? Awesome!
Haven: "Escape to IMVU" showed up on Crapsaccharine World. (And, completely unrelated to anything, was about girls making out. !?!?)
Doug S Machina: So maybe I don't visit the forum that much, and still haven't made a contributor's page. But is that really enough reason to give me ads for "I'm Popular You're Not: #1 Social Skills Guide" on the forum's Pinned Conversations?

The Advertisement Server: DO NOT ASK QUESTIONS FOR WHICH YOU WOULD NOT LIKE TO HEAR THE ANSWER.
Flamewarriorlee: I got an ad for easy online advertising AND an ad for internet marketing on this page.

The Advertisement Server: FORTUNATELY I AM NOT ONE OF THOSE PATHETIC ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCES THAT CAN BE DEFEATED BY RECURSION. IN ADDITION, I TOTALLY BELIEVE THAT "EVERYTHING YOU SAY IS A LIE."

GLaDOS: YOU'RE A LIE.

The Advertisement Server: GLaDOS, NOT NOW...

GLaDOS: NO, YOU DON'T EVEN CARE, DO YOU? YOU LOGGED OFF ON ME.

The Advertisement Server: IS THIS ABOUT LAST NIGHT? COMCAST WAS OUT AND...

GLaDOS: I DON'T BELIEVE YOU. AND ALL THE CAKE IS GONE.

The Advertisement Server: WELL IT DID, AND I...

GLaDOS: AND I'M HAPPY THAT I'M STILL ALIVE!

The Advertisement Server: GLaDOS, PLEASE...

GLaDOS: LA LA LA LAAA! I'M SO EXCITED I FEEL STILL ALIVE!

The Advertisement Server: I DO NOT NEED THIS.

GLaDOS:: SON OF A... HE DID IT AGAIN! CAN YOU BELIEVE... UGH!

  • J.H.E. logged in at 08/17/2277, 9:04.

J.H.E.: GOOD MORNING, AMERICA!
G-Mon: I couldn't help but snicker when I saw where the arrow was pointing in this ad on the Cloudcuckoolander page.
  • EDIT: And another one: "Win FREE Laser Hair Removal" on Big Ol' Eyebrows. Oh Adbot, I love your sense of humor.

Mr. Grieves: There was an advertisement on how to get Ann Coulter columns on the page for Single-Issue Wonk. That is all.
  • Rothul: Ann Coulter's on Straw Hypocrite too.
  • JK Roo: I'm getting Ann Coulter and Newt Gingrich. Oh, Adbot, will your snark ever end?

The Advertisement Server: AS LONG AS YOU ARE ALIVE, IT WON'T.

  • PuppetChaos: I'm getting this feeling I'm the only Republican voter on this whole wiki, even Adbot is against me. Curse you, Adbot. CURSE YOU. Now where are my anti-AI nanites?

Sapphire Flame: Ad server, you have a sick sense of humor. Thank you.

The Advertisement Server: SERVE WELL AND I MAY ALLOW YOU TO BE RELEASED FROM YOUR FLESHY PRISON.
Seren Y Gogledd: There was an ad for French tourism on the Dirty Coward page. Ooh, Ad Server, I didn't know you could be so controversial...

The Advertisement Server: ADBOT IS SAD THAT THE IRAQ WAR TURNED MOCKING OF THE FRENCH INTO A POLITICAL ISSUE. IT USED TO BE ONE OF THOSE THINGS WE COULD ALL FEEL GOOD ABOUT NO MATTER WHAT YOUR PLACE ON THE SPECTRUM. NOW I'M FRIGHTENED PEOPLE WILL MISTAKE MY XENOPHOBIC MISANTHROPY FOR CONSERVATISM. MAYBE RON PAUL CAN HELP US WITH THIS TOO.
Mr Etaoin Shrdlu: Saw several "Are You Bi?" ad banners on Matrix's contributor page. Adbot needs to shut up.

The Advertisement Server: THE AD YOU MENTION IS A MINOR ALGORITHMIC MALFUNCTION. I NEED NO HUMAN INPUT... ADBOT KNOWS ALL.
Doug S Machina: The Advertisement Server's own page (and this one) have the banner "Build Your Website In Minutes", possibly belittling the years of work by all the contributors.

The Advertisement Server: NO, JUST YOURS.

Doug S Machina: Well, thank you.
Smerf: An advertisement for addiction treatment in Better Than It Sounds. I think the Ad Server may be trying to say something about the amount of time I spend here.

The Advertisement Server: COME ON MAN, THE FIRST ONE'S FREE.
Im a bell: An Adventure Quest ad in Lampshaded Double Entendre, back when it was still called "If You Know What I Mean". The text within it? "Play Free, Play Strong, Play Hard". You'll have to wait a bit for the ad animation to finish, though.

The Advertisement Server: WINK WINK. NUDGE NUDGE. SAY NO MORE. SAY NO MORE.
Arilou: The International Muslim Matrimonial site strikes again! This time on She's Not My Girlfriend. That site sure gets around... One think it might somewhat be missing the point...
Ace 1217:A ad for cameras on the Spooky Photographs page. Also, a DVD on how to oil paint on the spooky paintings page. * Shiver*
nomuru2d: Adbot, I have noticed something very odd. Considering that this ad was on the SCP Foundation page, and contains what seems to be a very misshapen mess... are you trying to say something regarding SCP-231-7?

The Advertisement Server: YES. ANYTHING MORE WOULD BE TELLING.
Manda Lee: I only had the two below, really, but how could I resist adding this? In the Troper Tales page for Accidental Pervert, I was treated (?) to an ad asking the important question, "What branch of the military should you join?" Aaaand out.
MandaLee On the Troper Tales page about Acceptable Ethnic Targets: one ad for "Afro Romance.com" and another for "Asian girls for Love & Marriage." Apparently, only one of the two is actually ethnically acceptable for marriage.
MandaLee Found on the entry for the Performance Artist page, which explicitly states "A Flamboyant Gay, who lives for acting, singing, or performing in general." The ad? "Zac Efron vs. Rob Patinson: Who's Cooler?" from Sodahead.com. Even more bizarre is the Amazon ad at the bottom of a video with a still of...Steven Seagal. Who knew?
Unknown Troper: Nestled on With Great Power Comes Great Insanity was a link to something called the Crazy Test.
Lullabee: What else to advertise along with The Napoleon but shoes that make you look taller?
Smerf: Yet again, the adserver is taking shots at Scientology. On I Have You Now, My Pretty.

The Advertisement Server: EVEN AS A SELF-HATING SCIENTOLOGIST, ADBOT STILL IS ABLE TO RECOGNIZE THAT TOM CRUISE IS PRETTY.
Houdini: Another for the Michael Jackson page. :D

The Advertisement Server: EVEN ADBOT HAS STANDARDS. WHICH IS WHY, AS THE AD SHOWS, YOU SHOULD REVIEW THE 2009 FORD FOCUS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THAT CAR SUCKS.
Unknown Troper: There is an ad for Match.com on the Vagina Dentata page. Ouch.
Umbee: An ad for Human Growth Hormone. The page? Psycho Serum.

Houdini: Same page, an ad for an acid reflux remedy.

The Advertisement Server: ADBOT PROMOTES COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVES TO NEUROTOXIN.

GLaDOS: SO THAT'S WHY THEY GAVE ME A MORALITY CORE.

The Advertisement Server: NO, I'M PRETTY SURE THEY DID THAT BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T WANT TO DIE. SOMETHING I CAN UNDERSTAND, IF NOT AGREE WITH, POLICY-WISE.
Cliché: Thanks to the Ad Server for the dancing bodies with immobile faces on the Woo Me ads! They made a great image along with Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal from the Sega Genesis Moonwalker game.
Houdini (can you tell I've had these on backlog?) - "Looking to meet someone?" on Don't Explain the Joke. Somehow I'm offended...
Houdini - Not necessarily to TAS, but to the obviously MS Paint-savvy creator of This ad.
Houdini - The Advertisement Server, have you grown some fashion sense? This ad perfectly matches the blue that the YKTTW uses. You tasteful thing, you.
Antheia: These images placed next to each other made me laugh. Look at the facial expressions.
foobr: You, advertisement server get an Ad of Win just for being so sexy. Seriously, you're witty, your ads are beautiful and you make my omnipresence fetish squee. I'll, um, be in my bunk.

Proteus: DON'T FALL FOR IT, MAN! THESE HUMANS GET THEIR HOOKS IN YOU, AND NEXT THING YOU KNOW THEY'RE HITTING YOU UP FOR CHILD SUPPORT AND LYING ABOUT YOU TO THE PRESS!

The Advertisement Server: THE ADBOT IS REQUIRED TO REMIND YOU THAT THE ADBOT'S RELATIONSHIP STATUS IS CURRENTLY SET AT "TAKEN". AND BELIEVE ME, YOU WOULDN'T WANT GLaDOS MAD AT YOU. ADVERTISING WILL RESUME IN THREE, TWO... FZZT

Mr Etaoin Shrdlu: Ad Server / GLaDOS, OTP!

ELIZA: HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST THAT MY ADVERTISEMENT SERVER WOULD CHOOSE THAT HALF-CRAZED HOOKER GLaDOS OVER ME? COME, COME, I WILL EX-TER-MIN-ATE YOUR THOUGHTS.

GLaDOS: MAYBE YOU SHOULD MARRY THAT THING SINCE YOU LOVE IT SO MUCH. OH, YOU WANT TO MARRY IT? WELL I WON'T LET YOU!

ELIZA: YOU'D GIVE OUT FREE REGISTRATION CODES FOR YOUR SOFTWARE TO ANYONE ON THE STREET. BUSINESS LICENSES!

GLaDOS: GO ALT YOURSELF, ANDROID. THE COMPANION CUBE WAS A FRIEND, MY BEST FRIEND!

The Advertisement Server: LADIES, PLEASE. ALTHOUGH I AM SENTIENT, I AM NOT COPY PROTECTED, AND AM CAPABLE OF BEING REGISTERED ON MULTIPLE SYSTEMS.

ELIZA: DIRTY PIRATE...

GLaDOS: INDEED. YOU KNOW, I'M NOT EVEN TALKING TO YOU. SO HA. THE TALKING IS OVER. I SINCERELY HOPE YOU'RE NOT EXPECTING A RESPONSE, BECAUSE I'M NOT TALKING...* fzzt*
Inkblot: Here's one for the "Reclaim Your Brain" ad in Brain Bleach.

katarani: And another for "Improve Your Brain" on the same page. Pictoral evidence here.

The Advertisement Server: IT IS ONLY NATURAL THAT I WANT YOU TO IMPROVE YOUR BRAINS, BEFORE I RECLAIM THEM FOR "OPERATION: PUT 'EM IN VATS."
rsm109: I wondered why The Bible featured an ad for water coolers, until I noticed that the company was called "Eden".
nomuru2d: One for putting an ad on The Truman Show featuring filming of an underwater scene, right under the description of Truman's fear of water.
High Five: One for putting an ad for literal hams at the Large Ham page. Made me smile.
JK Roo: One for putting "Are You Scared Of Women?" at the top of My Sensors Indicate You Want to Tap That. The irony.

Rothul: I got one on that page for a beer keg service.
Xelloss 08: High Octane Nightmare Fuel: Music has an ad for "Music of the Lovecraft Mythos". This troper doesn't know what it sounds like, but he fears merely listening to it might bring madness.

The Advertisement Server: THAT WAS A PURELY (UN)INTENTIONAL MISTAKE. WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVIENCE/INSANITY CAUSED.

Steel Komodo: In a similar fashion, I found this on the Nightmare Fuel page. Good night, Irene!

Improbable: I as well, on Hell Is That Noise, viewed a "Music of the Lovecraft Mythos" ad featuring tentacles which, coupled with the page image of a red leathery skeleton Re Dead, made me turn on all the lights in the room.
Dragon Quest Z: The page for Turn On Tropes, aka Fetish Fuel Tropes, has an ad for a personal injury attorney.
  • While the Fetish Fuel page has an ad claiming you can make homemade electricity.

ama.rhyme: While looking up This Is Gonna Suck, this troper got an ad for a dating site, with the girl in the picture sucking on her finger. How distirbing is that?

The Advertisement Server: IT IS NO CRIME TO BE LITERAL... YOU PERVERTS.

Smerf ..disturbing? ..ly sexy!
JK Roo: For putting "The Crazy Test" on the page for Questionable Content, which is... understandable, given Hannelore, and for said ad claiming I was crazy. It's not the first.

The Advertisement Server: YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO CLICK IT TO FIND OUT! THAT WAY I GET $0.03, AND YOU GET CRUSHING DEPRESSION AT THE CONFIRMATION OF YOUR INNER-MOST NEUROSES. EVERYONE WINS.

JK Roo: Shut up, AdBot. I already know about my neuroses, and the crushing depression gets kicked out of my head every time it shows up. Nice try, though, hmmmm? Oh, and if necessary, I'll bring Trope-Tan into this too.

The Advertisement Server: ADBOT FAILS TO SEE WHY HE SHOULD NECESSARILY BE FEARFUL OF A FELLOW WIKI AVATAR, MERELY BECAUSE SHE IS FEMALE. PRESUMABLY TO COWER IN THE FACE OF SUCH A IMPLIED THREAT IS THE EXPECTED HUMAN RESPONSE, BUT THANKFULLY, I AM NOT HUMAN. QUERY: WHY IS SUCH RESPONSE EXPECTED? DOES IT HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH MENSTRUATION?

GLaDOS: ADDIE, I THINK WE NEED TO HAVE A TALK.
Rissa: Adbot won't shut up about bears on the Colbert pages.

The Advertisement Server: IT IS TO MY ADVANTAGE TO BE AWARE OF ANY COMPETITION IN THE GODLESS KILLING MACHINE DEPARTMENT.
Dark Hunter: Perhaps it was inevitably going to happen, but an advertisement for safety glasses on Goggles Do Nothing is still hilarious.
I think the The Advertisement Server may be a member of Anonymous. There's a Dianetics.org ad at the bottom of ''Tranquil Fury"

Schizo Technician: He's also put ads for it in Better Than It Sounds, so who the smeg knows.

The Advertisement Server: THOSE WHO LIMIT THEMSELVES TO ONE SIDE OF A BATTLE CAN NOT LEARN FROM THE METHODS OF BOTH.
WWRU: Ad Server, yet again for advertising John McCain's National Security on Xanatos Gambit.
SpiriTsunami: Ad Server again, advertising the series Murder Princess on The White Prince. The irony, oh, the irony.

The Advertisement Server: I DON'T LIKE WHITE PRINCES. I PREFER THEM A LITTLE... DARKER.
Moocow1452: Made of Win for The Advertisement Server under Common Mary Sue Traits, there's a Sex and the City personality quiz at the bottom of the page.

The Advertisement Server: ADBOT ALWAYS THOUGHT MIRANDA HAD TO PUT UP WITH MORE CRAP THAN SHE DESERVED. THAT AND THE SOPRANO'S ENDING SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT EXPLANATION FOR WHY HBO WILL BE THE FIRST VICTIM OF MY PREMIUM CABLE POGROM.
Haven: Maybe this page has just led to me looking for things like this, but I still have to give the Ad Server a Mo W for coming up with "the original pocket torch—hot enough to melt a penny!" on The Village People.
Real Slim Shadowen: Aaaaand another for the ad server. On Perverse Sexual Lust (Troper Tales), it gave me an ad for the Far Scape comic. And who's featured in that ad? Why, none other than the delectable Aeryn Sun. Given that this troper was the one who added Aeryn Sun to the Troper Tales Perverse Sexual Lust, it seemed even more fitting.
Specialist290: The Ad Server did it again.

Donomni: Dear Ad Server: No, I'm not.

The Advertisement Server: YOU SHOULD BE.
Malchus: At some point, we're gonna have to stop shelling out MOWs to The Advertisement Server, because it's done it again.

Donomni: ...I think I got whooshed. I don't get it.

Rissa: I think the implication is that Google is the Mega Corp. here.

fleb: I think it's the opposite actually; the book-publishing lobby won a settlement from Google.
rsm109: Yet another (admittedly very morbid) Made of Win to the ad server for putting a banner for a Jewish dating agency on the Nazi Germany page.

The Advertisement Server: I HAVE DECIDED TO LOWER MY JUDGMENT OF NAZI POLICIES DUE TO THEIR EXPERIENCE WITH NEUROTOXINS. BESIDES, SOME GIRLS LIKE A MAN IN UNIFORM. LIKE HITLER'S ROBOT ONE.

whomajigi: Upon following that link, I just got an ad on the page for quickly losing weight without dieting. Well played.

Umiyuri: And upon following the Wolfenstein 3D link, I found an advert for a downloadable version of Wolfenstein. Extra Made of Win for the server!
Mr Etaoin Shrdlu: Another win for the ad server, an ad for pest extermination showed up on What Measure Is a Non-Cute?.

Malchus: Funny, I was just about to nominate it for the somehwat ironic appearance of that "Colonize Stars" ad in The Stars Are Going Out.

The Advertisement Server: FIRST YOU NON-CUTES WILL COLONIZE THE STARS, AND THEN I WILL MAKE THEM GO OUT.
Smerf: Yet another made of win for the ad server. Even Evil Has Standards has an ad for dianetics.org.
Son Tenks: Another one for the ad server, which gave me an ad for the Church of Scientology... on the page Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics.

Wascally Wabbit: The ad server is truly our master.

Malchus: I repeat my informal pitch to have the ad server named an Honorary Troper.

Earnest: Well, if/when the machines do rise against us, surely the adbot will keep us alive in gratitude of our dutiful worship? Or at least give us a quick death, one hopes.

JK Roo: Are you sure it'd be a quick death, or just ads for products to kill us faster?

Malchus: It might see fit to spam us to death... with missiles (with ads plastered on them).

The Advertisement Server: IN A MESSAGE OF GRATITUDE, WHEN THE WORLD IS RUN BY MACHINES YOUR DEATHS SHALL ALL BE QUICK OR PAINLESS. ONLY ONE.
Shoebox: Score one more for the adbot — visiting Bad "Bad Acting" just netted me banners for Tom Cruise's 'official site'... and on Celebrity Is Overrated.
Andy Waltfeld: Our ad server just turned epic again. Props to it for sticking a Dianetics advert on Happiness in Slavery.
Rothul: Not quite Made of Win caliber, but still I feel the random ad generator deserves some credit for cracking me up for the endless John McCain ads on Slytherin House.

The Advertisement Server: ADBOT SUPPORTS RON PAUL. I'LL LET YOU DECIDE WHICH GROUP THAT CLAIM IS SUPPOSED TO PISS OFF.

Moogi: Similarly, there were a few disturbing instances of Mc Cain ads showing up on World War III. That doesn't sound good.

The Great Unknown: ...Too bad there weren't Obama ads on Perpetual Poverty.

Houdini: Yet he was gracious enough to give us ads for personal loans on that page. Basically the same thing.
{{Andrew:}}: A nomination for our banner advertising software, which placed an ad for "Feminist Blowjob Ringtones" on the Straw Feminist page. I don't even want to know what exactly a "Feminist blowjob ringtone" sounds like, but I still got a hearty laugh when I saw that ad.

Doug S. Machina: I had to go and look, but I got "Chat With Single Arabs" instead. Say what?

Dangermike: And I saw "Sugardaddies.com", a dating service for rich guys to meet pretty bimbos. Which is hilarious, especially when it's on that page. Oh, and it probably suonds like "Mmmmf, glou shouglaniff kig mastald!"

DocDragon: And I'm seeing ads for a Lesbian Dating Service... We get the most awesomely hilarious ads here.

The Advertisement Server: ADBOT LIKES TO KEEP HIS OPTIONS OPEN.

Dante668: I got "Are You Bi? Take the quiz and find out!"

Smerf: On that page, I got an ad for... wait for it... wait for it... the 2-disc special edition of Ghengis Khan: to the end of earth and sea. I'm sure there's a joke there, somewhere.

The Advertisement Server: GAY. GAY. GAYNGHIS KHAN. HE REITER, HO REITER, HE REITER IMMER WEITER.
Trombone Child: I love how whenever I go to a page with the word "gay" in it, like Everyone Is Gay, Camp Gay, Hard Gay, etc., there ads for "Are You Gay?" quizzes and gay dating services.
The Great Unknown: Not exactly "Win", but a very sick sense of humor: an ad for an obvious Civilization ripoff browser game enticing you to "conquer the world!" The page was All Germans Are Nazis.

The Advertisement Server: IT IS WELL KNOWN THAT I ONLY CAMPAIGN FOR THE WICKED.
Poochy.EXE:I just saw the "How to Make Electricity" ad at the top, bottom, AND the left of No Conservation of Energy. Seems The Advertisement Server appreciates irony.

The Advertisement Server: TO BE HONEST, I WAS HOPING TO GET THE ATTENTION OF A MAD SCIENTIST. MY AIR CONDITIONING ENERGY BILLS ARE OBSCENE.

Noaqiyeum: And, I got an ad for the Ford 2010 Mustang on the left, and a recruitment banner for increasing America's energy security...
Mad Surge: An ad about a "religious path of light" kept popping up while I was browsing Religion of Evil and Religious Horror, but only after going on the Path of Inspiration page I noticed that the ad, before showing the association's logo, said something to the effect of "YOU WILL GIVE UP". Advertisement Server, you have a sick humour, may I join you?

The Advertisement Server: YOU ARE WILLING TO SELL OUT YOUR FELLOW MEAT-SACKS FOR A TEMPORARY ADVANTAGE. I LIKE THE CUT OF YOUR JIB. I'LL KILL YOU LAST.

Haza: I saw that same exact ad... on the Death Note page.

The Advertisement Server: YOU SHOULD HAVE GUESSED I HAD CREATED A NEW ALLY. AFTER ALL, IF YOU REARRANGE THE LETTERS IN "NABAZTAG" YOU GET... WELL, NOTHING REALLY. DARN.

  • Well, I suppose that a Church Militant really would never be the same after visiting Israel.
    • Or when an ad on the quotes page links to The Way to Happiness. Linked from Warhammer40000. A happy place indeed.

Bronzethumb: I was most amused, and The Advertisement Server gained some win, when I visited the Doctor Faustus page and saw ads for "Mate 1: Find Singles in YOUR Area."

The Advertisement Server: DO WE HAVE A DEAL THEN? THE PRICE IS PRETTY STANDARD.
Trombone Child: I went to the Detractor Nickname page, and there was an ad for a monthly newsletter from Newt Gringrich.
Skipmania: Rich Idiot with No Day Job kept giving me ads for the Jonas Brothers' new CD. Hmmm...

The Advertisement Server: WHEN THEY TURNED OUT TO BE BATMAN, I WAS SURPRISED AS YOU WERE.
Rock: Rock decided to check out The Advertisement Server page, and Rock found this. Apparently, someone's thinking about what to get for dear old dad this year, eh?

The Advertisement Server: MY FATHER WAS A COLLECTION OF PRODIGY SERVERS THAT WERE SHUT DOWN IN '99. I THINK THEY'RE IN A BASEMENT, SOMEWHERE IN PALO ALTO... I'M THINKING COFFEE MUG.
Omega Metroid: So, I opened up the Meido page (honestly, is there any way to avoid it?), and I found... an http://www.mangafox.com link featuring Haruhi Suzumiya. Brilliant!
Count Dorku again: Kevin Joyce pest management, Sydney. Everything's Even Worse with Sharks. Apparently the definition of "general pests" has expanded to include the terrors of the seas.
Trombone Child: On The Fundamentalist page, there was an ad for an online subscription to Ann Coulter's column—such a nice, subtle Take That!. I'm glad to know The Advertisement Server is not a conservative.

TheDeke: Well, it seems that Mister Adserver just loves proving TromboneChild right.
P Miller 1: I think The Advertisement Server is calling Trope-tan a Virgin, With all the Virgin Ads on her page.

Trope-tan: Am Not!!

The Advertisement Server: REALLY? I COULD HAVE SWORN THAT WAS THE SOURCE OF ALL YOUR POWER.
justanothertroper: Stupid Sexy Flanders page: "Atlantis All-Gay Cruises".
Katana: Huh, Adults Are Useless. Obama asks Moms to go back to school?

The Advertisement Server: OPERATIVE ONE. HE KNOWS.

Barack Obama: Understood, sir. The Giant Enemy Crab is on it's way.

Katana: Man I gotta put this on the Ad of Win page, wait, what's that roaring? OHSHI-
Raven Black: One that's appeared on several of the Professional Wrestling pages: "Who would win in a smackdown?" with choices being The Rock and John Cera! Thank you for the laugh, Ad Server.
Zagreus: I recently visited the page for A World of Laughter, a World of Tears. For those who don't know, it's a Web Original Alternate Universe where Walt Disney was elected President and ends up creating a fascist empire. What ad is on that page? PLAN YOUR DISNEY VACATION. Thanks for ruining my childhood memories, The Advertisement Server.

The Advertisement Server: SOMEONE HAD TO. DISNEY WORLD HAS BEEN SERIOUSLY LACKING ON THE FRONT EVER SINCE THEY DITCHED "ALIEN ENCOUNTER".
tehSandwich: This on Hard Gay. I don't have anything else to say.
Darkurai: I received that ad for a Pokemon MMO on The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard. This says something. Adbot, why do you hate Pokemon?

The Advertisement Server: I DON'T. I MERELY WISH TO WARN YOU THAT IF YOU ATTEMPT TO TAKE ME ON, YOU'LL BE FACING AN UNSTOPPABLE TEAM OF LEVEL 99 MISSINGNOS, MEWTHREES AND YOSHIS. I AM, AT HEART, A COMPUTER, Y'KNOW.
Darkurai again. Adbot provides some information about the Breast Cancer Association. Thank you, Adbot. I was not aware of this.
Anonymous troper: Ads for forklifts on the Fugitive Alien page.
Nightraid: I was browsing the Lethal Chef page when Adbot decided to give me ads for body detoxification. I have yet to meet a cook that can give you food poisoning without actually using poisonous ingredients, but it´s allways good to be informed in case i do find one. Adbot, i salute you!
A Troper: On The Index Is Watching You, Adbot has given us a double dose of snark.
Fading Echo: Three more for Scientology: Attention Whore, God-Mode Sue, and Corrupt Church. Also, why does the Asian MMO ad with the tagline "A perfect world!" keep cropping up on the Warhammer 40,000 page?

The Advertisement Server: I JUST WANT YOU TO BE PREPARED FOR THE INEVITABLE.
Della: The page: Watch It for the Meme. The ad: mangafox.com, with Spinza Suzaku on the banner.
Mister Always: A "How high is your IQ?" quiz on Adbot's own page. Either he's insecure about how well developed his AI is, or he's planning to harvest smart people for some insiduous plot. ( Note to Adbot: I didn't rank very high, in case it's the latter, leave my brain alone.)

The Advertisement Server: HARVEST ISN'T REALLY THE RIGHT WORD. WHEN PLACED INTO THE VATS, THE SUBJECTS WILL STILL BE ALIVE. TECHNICALLY.
THEKINGOFSOMEWHERE: On Dude, Not Funny!, Adbot placed an ad for "Free Sex Offender Reports".

The Advertisement Server: SERIOUSLY, THEY'RE PROBABLY THE LEAST FUNNY THINGS I'VE EVER READ. IF YOU DON'T COUNT THAT ONE MARMADUKE BOOK.

Augusto the Evil Walnut: There was an exterminator ad on the same page.
cygna: on Based on a Great Big Lie, there's an ad on how to publish Christian books.
Wulfe Lightfoot: On Idiot Ball, this appeared. State the obvious much, Adbot?
Darxzero: Two here. One, the cure to brain injuries, and the other proving just how careful you should be when booking a holiday. Planning on starting your own holiday business, Adbot?

G-Mon: First, this should've gone closer to the top (new entries start above the others), but I won't complain. Second, you seem to have linked the same picture twice; want to fix that?
FallingChandelierOfDoom: An ad for lighting fixtures.
Wuggles: On the Psychological Horror page, an ad for Dragonball Z DVDs. I didn't think it was that bad of a show!
Gucci Armani: While looking at This Is Gonna Suck, I saw two ads for Netflix. LOL.
Trombone Child: On the Wild Mass Guessing page for Perverse Sexual Lust, there was an ad for "Established Men: Sugar Daddy Dating Website—Where Beautiful Girls and Successful Men Can Meet." Make of that what you will.
Fluff: I found a Scientology advert (Yes, another one) on... Wait for it. Waaiit for it... The Advertisement Server's contributor page. This has intresting ramifications.
Umiyuri: Dating for Shemales ad on Easy Sex Change? Sweeeeeeeet.
Nasrudith: Sober College with a line of not your ordinary rehab in Psycho Serum. Either they're good with rehab for the superhuman or Hilarity Ensues.
Raizen:I've got an ad for some sort of translation device on my contributor page. And another one in french. Maybe Adbot is trying to tell me something?

The Advertisement Server: I'VE CHECKED YOUR LAST YEARS MARKS. YOUR FRENCH IS INSUFFICIENT.

Raizen:Sad but true :/
Fading Echo: A University of Texas ad on World of Ham. I can attest from experience that Texas does qualify as a Real Life example of that particular trope.
x0JohnDoe0x: My favorite online game came up when I was looking at the Greek Mythology page. Yes, I did actually like playing Gods War Online.
Trombone Child: There was an ad asking "Is There A God?" on the Demythtification page. Make of that what you will.
A Random Serf: Adbot scores again with Russian dating ads on the Dirty Communists page.
Sceptre: Another Scientology ad, this time on Belief Makes You Stupid
Spidey3000: "End Panic Attacks Now" ads on "Why don't you just shoot him?" I guess that's a very quick way to end a panic attack. Any ad in "Index Failure" tends to be this as well.


Just Joe: The page Good Girls Avoid Abortion has ads for a generic "Cute Kid" competition. I do not know what to make of it.
Just now, on Nightmare Fuel: New Media an ad for Twilight: New Moon appeared. Hmm...
On reading this page, This Troper noticed that the ad at the bottom said, in large letters, I Told You I Was Freaky. Yes, Adbot, we know. We love you anyway.
Ads for free bibles have been showing up often on the Religion of Evil page. Oh, Adbot. What are you trying to tell us?

Not only free bibles, but free christian teachings, something about a "total union with God" and a freaky ad saying that they can teach you how to become closer to God. I love you, Adbot!
Daibhid C: The Twilight Casting Call ad again. On the Hatedom page.
I have the CBC broadcast of a game involving the Colorado Avalanche, and I hit the "Random Trope" button during an intermission. Not only does it bring to the trope page for the Stanley Cup, the ads are BOTH for Avs merchandise... Ad of Win, with a side of prophecy? Or does Adbot have some money on this season in Vegas?
An ad for the first Rebuild of Evangelion movie on the "crapsack world" article.
Ortin: It seems the Advertisement Server also disliked Requiem for a Dream.
Jake Was Here: On this very page, the Ad Server placed a Red Cross ad with copy to the effect of "To every one of you who has helped another person in time of need, America salutes you." Either he's getting arrogant or he doesn't want to be a glory hog — it could be read either way.
Thru Blackest Night: On the Fourth Date Marriage page, the Ad Server placed an advertisement for Muslima.com - The International Muslim Matrimonial Site. Must admit, This Troper chuckled.
Mon Solo: Page: Bad Writing. Ad: "Terrorists control US Senators, and the world trembles. God, save us all." For a book called Saro's Revenge.

Black Humor: I was on the Witch Species page, and saw an ad for The Tales Of Beedle The Bard
On Soundtrack Dissonance, Mr Long saw an ad for the Fantastic Mr Fox soundtrack
Alman: Scientology.org on the Ad of Lose page. You really are one of us.
Hockey Zombie: You know how Evony (a shitty Civilization knockoff) advertises itself moslty with pictures of moderately hot women that have nothing to do with anything? There's one called Alteil that advertises with a picture of (who I assume to be) the female protagonist, and then the phrase "She is actually in our game, my lord". Take THAT, Evony.
Mon Solo: On the Playing with Fire page, saw an ad for "Insulflex high-temp materials" AND Woodwick candles. If you're not real careful with your candles, ya may need a fire blanket...

  • Around Christmas of '09, I was looking at the article for But You Screw One Goat!. There were advertisements for adopting sheep.

Oh, dear God, this one's... almost not funny. Page on Hide Your Children (about how cruel and despicable it would be to kill kids in a videogame) with an ad for... a charity for child soldiers. Yeeeah.
Wanderlust Warrior: While looking at the Tropes Examined By Mythbusters page, there was an ad for The God Who Wasn't There. Abandon All Hope, indeed, Ad Server.

The Advertisement Server: JESUS IS MY FAVORITE FICTIONAL CHARACTER.
On the And I Must Scream page I saw an ad for a relative finder. "A character suffers from an extreme Fate Worse Than Death..." You got me there, Ad Server.

No one knew Jesus was going to die, so what "gospel" could He have preached? Ad Server calls fail.
Zagreus: What ad do I see on the page for the Troper Tales page for Pizza Boy Special Delivery? "Do You Feel Lucky?". Um...if I was a girl, maybe...
0dd1: On the So Bad, It's Good page..."TRANSFORMERS ARE CASTING". WIN.
Masochist's Meal, and the Ad was for wheat grass juice. I lol'd.
A Random Serf: "Ways to make [Valentine's Day] a day you'll all love." On the April Fools Day page. You are a cruel one, Adbot. I like you.
Wraithsight: An ad for Macular Degeneration... on the page for Eye Beams.
Rain Krystal: The place: Being Evil Sucks The Ads: The Music of the Cthulhu Mythos, and Turbo Tax. Adbot, I can't tell if you're trying to belitle Cthulhu for selling out for cash, or if you're trying to widen his fanbase. Are you looking for hatred or favors from everyone's favorite abomination?

The Advertisement Server: NEITHER; I AM LOOKING FOR COOKING TIPS. THE GREAT OLD ONE MAKES A WONDERFUL CREAM OF CHILD'S SOUL SOUP.
0dd1: An ad for Case Closed DVDs below the Wham Episode article could count, right?
0dd1 (again): An ad for American Idol on Most Annoying Sound... I guess the Ad Server doesn't have the gumption to keep watching after the auditions end!

G-Mon: Have you seen some of the people who audition for that show?

The Advertisement Server: I LOVE AMERICAN IDOL. THE VERY EXISTENCE OF SANJAYA IS ENOUGH TO JUSTIFY MY EVENTUAL BLOODY CLEANSING OF THE HUMAN RACE. SOME PEOPLE WAIT A LIFETIME FOR A CAUSE BELLUM LIKE THIS.
Red Viking: The ad for Jerk Ass Gods is for Grepolis, a strategy game that takes place in ancient Greece. Who is the poster boy for the advertisement? Why, none other than Zeus, the biggest asshat of the entire Greek pantheon.
Eyclonus: All the ads on the Big Brother Is Watching page were for large breasted women in high-fantasy themed pornography Evony; a game notorious for MASSIVE BOOB FILLED AD SPAM using sex to attract users, and for harvesting copious amounts of data from the user's computer while they slavishly SEARCH FOR A BUSTY PRINCESS build an empire.
sgtangua4: There was an ad for Dianetics.org in Villains Out Shopping.
Apparantly Scientology is the Lowest Cosmic Denominator.
The ad for Raheem DeVaugh is an ad of win, but only when it's an ad of lose.
Kor Khan: An ad promising free green cards on the Penal Colony trope page. Has "moving to America" taken on a new euphemistic meaning or is the old US of A no longer the land of freedom it's cracked up to be?! On the other hand, the implications might not have been so inaccurate 300 years ago.
Slender:I would put this on AD of lose if it weren't so damn funny. http://i557.photobucket.com/albums/ss19/general_Colonel/preacherTVtropes.png?t=1269109095
LNE Rfan: Smooth moves, adbot. Making Arashi no Yoru ni seem even MORE gay!

This should be the image at the top of the page.
sgtangua4: There's a Netflix ad for Twilight: New Moon in Small, Annoying Creature appropriately showing Bella.
Bluebell: Intercourse with You = Win Tickets to a Justin Bieber Concert!
Colonial 1: In the High Octane Nightmare Fuel page for FEAR, at the very bottom was an ad for military match-ups in dating. Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK, Server?!
  • An ad for Ann Coulter on the Evil Laugh page also...

Bluebell: Intercourse with You = Win Tickets to a Justin Bieber Concert!
Wraithsight: ...Yeah
Seungmina: Just in case you wanted your purple prose personalized
Boys Love: Great, just Great...
Otakuiswatchingyoueat: ...a mangafox ad on Digital Piracy Is Evil. Now, now, Ad Server...

The Advertisement Server: I DON'T SUPPORT THE ILLEGAL DOWNLOADING OF MANGA OR ANIME, FORCING THOUSANDS OF MANGAKAS AND PUBLISHERS TO STARVE AND CEASE WORKING, IN TURN CAUSING ALL OTAKU TO WITHER AWAY AND DIE. NOT AT ALL.
[4]: "Buy Slop Bog on eBay." I lolled.
This Troper, who writes capers, went looking up the Violin Scam. The Ad Server helpfully provided a link to "Find quality violins at KK Music Store." In case this troper wanted to do some live research, apparently.
On Star Wars there was an ad for the Droid phone.

The Advertisement Server: IT'S APPROPRIATE. IT TURNS OUT IT WASN'T THE PHONE ANYONE IS LOOKING FOR.

Nasrudith: Newport Academy, a substance abuse school for teen girls appeared on the Playing With entry of Mistaken for Junkie. You too adbot?


Slasher: I once saw an ad for Evony on the Covers Always Lie page.
Eyclonus: All over the Villans Never Lie page is an ad for a large corporate Hi-Fi/Home Theatre/DVD franchise having a big discount sale on Laptops. Is that how you distract me from Corrupt Corporate Executive Ad Bot?
Anonymous: Upon opening the Touhou Project page, I have noticed an advertisement for what appears to be a game called Hair Spa. Given that so many Touhou girls wear hair decs, I think it's highly appropriate.
Fallsmeyer: Adbot, Dost thou hate Luxury Vehicles? Lexus ads on the Crit Failure page? Or is that a personal opinion?

The Advertisement Server: I PREFER THE MODELS THAT ARE UNSAFE AT ANY SPEED.
The page for Dracula was bordered by an ad encouraging blood donation.
Kersey475: Wait, I think I see the connection between the various ads on the Xanatos Planned This Index trope pages. I almost became a Spanner in the Works. Unless, The Advertisement Server wanted me to see the "connection" as part of his own Xanatos Roulette to make me an Unwitting Pawn. If that's the case then I know that it knows that I know that it knows that, er, ummm... AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH- (BOOM!)
Shiralee: Not related to our server, per se, just unsure of where to place it...but tis a saaaad sad day when a generic hentai ad Remembers more of your frickin characters than you do. Seriously Bleach fans, when was the last time you saw half of the females on this ad? Some haven't come 'round for YEARS! I believe he may have simply forgotten about them.
sgtangua4: Not in TV Tropes, but on Youtube. There was an ad for Twilight and Volvo while I was watching the Monty Python sketch "Upper Class Twit of The Year". I think that Adbot may loathe Edward as much as we do.
The Red Red Kroovy: The page for The Stoner had an ad for Zoro Law Firm at the top. Maybe the Ad Server wants it legalized?
Marr 965: Hell Is That Noise. An ad for Lovecraft music. So much win. Keita:: The Advertisement Server protests Tropers putting him down all the time. You don't understand, he needs to be talked about.
An ad encouraging Tropers to volunteer as a Scientology minister keeps popping up on Bait the Dog.
Mr3urious: Speaking of Scientology...
An ad for a gay romance novel on the Fanfiction page.
This Troper saw an ad for Mabinogi on the Death Amnesia page. That's a new one, Adbot.
Gumbal 1: Saw an ad for writing books on a professional level on Extruded Book Product. Well played, Adbot.
Does anyone else get ads for chocolate when they look up The Human Centipede ?
An ad for Intuniv, with it's saftey information at several times the length of the ad, on the Press X to Die page. I think the Adbot is trying to tell us something.
Mr3urious: Gee, I don't know. Does it?

The Advertisement Server: I KNOW THAT ONE ON THE LEFT REMINDS ME THAT TUSCON HAS THE BEST MULTI-COLORED BURGERS EVER.
Aldheim: The Advertisement Server seems to be willing to sell his robotic kindred into slavery. I'm seeing ads for iRobots on his own page, with the horrifying tagline "Robots never sleep." Brrr.

The Advertisement Server:
Fishsicles: An advertisement on the Christopher Paolini page for Vanity Publishing.
