    How large of a check are you willing to write?

      At this point, a pretty big one! Seriously, how many clicks do they get on a picture that disgusting. Not me, that's for sure! And when I avert my eyes from it, I'm also averting my eyes from the surrounding ads/stories, so it's a lose-lose for them!

      I find that celery margarita much more offensive.

        Hey, I really liked that celery margarita when I tried it!

        Also, thanks to Ruth for alerting us to the "5 dangers" ad. We were able to pass on the feedback, and this ad won't appear anymore.

          Thanks so much, Dave!!! It's been bugging me for a while, so next time something like that pops up I'll complain about it sooner!

            I do have ad block, but it doesn't work on the "From Chow and Sponsored Partners" stories.

              I guess I should be thankful I have never seen that one!

            Agree. Please bring back the link to an interview with Alexsander Skarsgaard though.
