Is it just me but "Exactly what part of the pig is Taylor ham?" is making me nuts!

When I log into the Boards section, I usually get the above title with the suggestion to go to the Mid Atlantic Board. These change with various titles (Achtung!, etc.) but for some reason the above one always seems to come up when I check in. Am I the only one that these annoy?

I thought it was cute the first 50 times but now I think it's a bit tiresome. Of course with the state of the world being what it is, this should be every Chowhounds biggest problem. Still, I wonder if these large eye-catching titles will soon be changed to another subject???

  1. Agreed. Drives me nuts also; it's always there it seems.

      1. 'sposed to be moving to soon. I'm sure we'll see changes of all types?

          Good to know. The Taylor ham reminds me of those giant billboards on the highway or those flashing banners on my monitor that are so distractive.

        2. I'm pretty successful in tuning it out, but...

          - it is annoying, and

          - it's not useful in any way since the link from it doesn't even go to that thread, just the Mid-Atlantic board.

          I'll go so far as to label it very poor web design.
