    I`m going to call fake. If this was real, there would be hundreds of examples of it all over the web. The only one in existence seems to be this one here on IAB.

    Plus, progressive as they can be, I do not see this ad appearing in Belgium without some sort of uproar.

    I seriously don`t see anything wrong with this. I imagine that most girls have done something like this at one time or another, all the company has done is making it into a cute commercial.

    @ Dr. Atlas: I did not say this fake ad was progressive. I said the Belgians are progressive people.

    Don`t try to spin my statement into something it isn`t. Friggin` troll.

    People who follow the etymology. Dropping the `a` is a modern shortening from one country only that breaks a link to the root word.

    I wouldn`t say that dropping the `a` is necessarily wrong, but it is less right.

    Aluminum was a typo to begin with and doesn`t match the usual naming of elements, so calling it the correct spelling is rather dubious.

    You`re on much better ground with `honor`, as the root word doesn`t have a `u`. The `u` was added when the word was Anglicised - the Latin word it comes from doesn`t have it.

    I don`t know about `flavor`...looking it up implies either way works. It entered English from French, where the `u` is present, but it entered French from Latin, where the `u` isn`t present but neither is the `v`.

    Of course, it could also be argued that the correct spelling of any English word is the English spelling, since English is English.

    I also think it`s an innocent picture of a child playing. But I see how it could be interpreted very differently. If I was on an advertising standards authority and this landed on my desk, I wouldn`t pass it.

    How is he a troll? Your statement clearly says that although Belgians are progressive, they aren`t progressive enough to accept this ad. That clearly implies that you think progressive = paedo. Go look in the mirror troll.

    I find it amusing how my country is being portrayed by Americans and Canadians. Thanks for thinking we`re progressive, but sometimes I think some of us are more ass-backwards than redneck trailer trash in America.

    Anywhore; I don`t see anything wrong with this. Sure, it might look kind of pedofile-ish to some, but meh.

    @ I-IS-BORED: You two are the only ones who have chosen to put such an unfortunate spin on my words.

    Nice try though... Continue to miss the obvious point. I never implied that progressive = pedo.

    The fact that you need it explained to you speaks volumes. Go find a fight somewhere else... you ain`t gettin` that satisfaction here.

    I am not sure what dictionary you use to define words, but progressive does not mean, nor is it implied in his statement, that it is refering to a pedo. Guess what, American`s are not progressive enough to accept this add either. Our stigmas prevent us from seeing the true message here. But uhhhhhh, Im not really sure what the msg is really supposed to be.

    it`s pretty funny how an add like this can lead to a fierce battle over orthography! :D

    @Angilion, if you were really following the etymology, why are you using latin characters and not greek ones?

    @Angilion, sorry, the question was only rhetorical ... ;-) the point really is that no matter what kind of orthography you are used to, it is as it is not because it`s correct, but only because it has evolved this way due to historical circumstances. yet we usually consider our way of writing to be correct because we are used to it (and then look for reasons to justify it, `because we wrote like this first`, `because it`s more logical`, `because divine inspiration and/or a chinese fortune cookie told us so` etc. etc. etc.

    i usually just draw pictures, more fun anyway.
