really bad product placement.
Yup, that should get the stain right out.
My bajingo just convulsed reading that. Then my uterus curled tighter & rocked from side to side. Damn.
It’s better than a picture of Joan Crawford beating a small girl with a wire hangar, right? No?
and yeah, I want to get into the abortion debate with the people that get the semen stains out of my prom dress.
Oh god, that creeped me out. Which is not uncommon for this site so I’m not sure what I’m bitching about.
Oh my god. That’s so abhorring that it’s brilliant.
I think that advertisement should be printed on rifle stocks, hand gun grips, bazookas, and nuclear warheads.
I question whether the marketing people are evil or if they are actually brilliant.
I think that advertisement should be printed on rifle stocks, hand gun grips, bazookas, and nuclear warheads, the front bumpers of cars, scary amusement park rides, and halloween candy.
You know, things that actually kill people.
HAHAHA oh my god. That’s amazing.
I can see it now: “Well, I was GOING to use this coat hanger for a shoddy, back-alley abortion, but now that the very hanger I was planning to use has admonished me to choose life, I just feel like a douche.”
Someone already beat me to the Mommy Dearest reference… what a shame.
But really, they’re just hoping to stop those On-The-Fence back-alley abortionists.

They need the same image, replete with kiddy scrawl on an 8-ball and a bottle of butt lube. XD
i’m getting mixed signals here…
Do people still use hangers? That’s so old school.
i thought my “no smoking” themed ashtray was great found object art.
Holy Shit Balls
@fatchissimo It’s the lesser-known side of the vinyl craze…
These people are the reason I never leave the West coast.
NO! WIRE! HANGERS! EVER!!!!!
Buzzkill, don’t forget all items used for capital punishment.
Excuse the poor photoshopping, but my lunch hour is over already.
That’s like putting an anti-obesity ad on a Big Mac combo, no?
#22 whimiscalistehnics, well, I am limited to 550 characters.
The inevitable photoshopping (someone needs to make pinback buttons from this image):
Do these comments accept HTML?
Two things come to mind when I see this-
The scene from “Dirty Dancing” where Penny has the botched abortion.
The scene where Joan goes batshit crazy on Tina in “Mommie Dearest” (which has been mentioned)
Think that about covers it
Maybe the foam cover was on there to discourage such things…right. It’s like putting Wilford Brimley’s face on a box of powdered donuts- this makes no sense.
choose life on a wire hanger?! what’s next? are they going to put AA ads on the bathtub gin i get down at the speakeasy?
@11: And here I was going to tell this crack added 12 year old that she should get an abortion, then saw this hanger. Now I’m going to tell her that bringing a new life into her house is a swell idea.
its funny because this is from near where i currently live, which is about 30 mins north of cincinnati, OH… now does it suprise anyone that someone from ohio would do something dumb like this?
I laughed maniacally at my desk at the office. Then I did this
Who the ZARK would automatically think ‘abortion’ when seeing a metal coathanger??? That is twisted shit, people…
Other inappropriate Ad Places…
1. Eat Healthy…McDonalds
2. Save the Dolphin…Bumble Bee Tuna
3. Crack Kills…Drywall Compound.
I sincerely doubt the people who decided to share this message with their customers will ever get the irony of where they placed it.
It’s like the clarification they put on their plastic coverings “This bag is not a toy”, but more slightly subtle than “This wire hanger is not a heathen medical implement.”
Maybe it’s a Pro-Abortion hanger and they meant it to read “Chews Life”.
If hanger manufacturers made them so they couldn’t be unravelled into a killing tool then there would be no need for this message.
I blame the hanger manufacturers!
#32, almost but not quite worth a drive from Detroit. At least Christine O’Donnell will guarantee there aren’t any unseemly stains on my clothing when it comes back.
Does this mean if I do choose life, I can sue them for encouraging me? (like I could sue them if the life I chose suffocated on an unmarked plastic bag)
this dry cleaner is not a uterus cleaner.
also… is this being directed to women by placing it on the drycleaning, assuming a woman would be picking it up?
I am just in awe of the stupidity here. I don’t even know where to begin.
My brain broke.
The Comic Sans-knockoff font I think was the final straw but I’m not sure.
One more quick Photoshopping
Holy…I smacked my hand over my mouth so hard I think I left a mark.
You know, I think my DRY CLEANER should spend less time worrying about what comes in and out of my hooha and more time concentrating on getting the wine stain out of my pants. Just a thought.
The dry cleaner wants us to choose life because they know where we’re going to bring the comforter and linens after we’re done.
*I know, bad. Very bad*
#48, and the bridal gear after the shotgun wedding…
My thought process:
…only worse ad placement I guess would be on the packaging of a Shop-Vac…
Why does it always have to be Cincinnati? Sigh. I have to go on the record to say we’re not all like this.
All I could think of is Joan Crawford wailing on her unwanted child saying, “No more wire hangers!”
#38 Bills: I’m thinking Chews Bacca!!!
someone in marketing took a break at the wrong time or they were super tied and just said yes
Well, if the goal of advertising is to make a company or product memorable… It sure as hell worked.
I will never be able to forget about Springdale Cleaners for the rest of my life.
“Choose Life — choose a licensed medical professional!”
I always naively presumed that if people were going to do a back alley abortion, they’d bring a wire coathanger from home instead of raiding the nearest dry cleaners. Apparently I was wrong.
I hope no desperate young person reads about this coat hanger thing and thinks its an awesome idea–if you look at anatomy diagrams there isn’t a straight line from outside the body through the cervix to the fetus, in fact it is a tiny passageway that’s at an odd angle so trying to stick a coat hanger or any other straight object up there is way more likely to cause yourself severe, life-threatening bleeding than accomplish an abortion.
@ #6 Hey Space Girl, the word you are so diligently misusing is ‘aborrhent,’
