Sometimes companies will use fictional characters to advertise their product.  In an effort to exemplify the 'strength' of their product, these companies will often insist that said character be portrayed in a manner at odds with its contextual reality...

So, what's the deal with all of the "anti-knock" goodness this gasoline supposedly provided? I guess this was a pretty big deal?

We used to put lead in things. Now the Chinese do that for us too.

You must never actually go into the gas station. Or, maybe I live in the South, and should be happy that they're still common here.

And why didn′t the Hulk or Superman or Captain America or Wonder Woman or Spider-Man or The Flash return the favor and help Hostess® in their time of desperate need? Heck, they even had outright supernatural beings such as Casper the Friendly Ghost and Wendy the Good Li′l Witch owing them favors! Why did none of them help Hostess, after all the times Hostess products helped them out!?

Why, Bruce Wayne could′ve paid off much of their debts with just the cost of a Batjet or two! Or, better yet, Ri¢hie Ri¢h, the Poor Li′l Rich Kid, could've bought them outright with a week′s allowance!

But nooooooooooo, none of them could even be bothered to lift a finger or chip in some petty cash!

Do you think fark will ever disable the shiat filter? Considering it's used in prime time TV and even some ads?

For some reason, I kept reading Spider-Man until I actually RTFA, then it became Superman.

I must be going crazy.
