Social worker…or exorcist

I was just taking a quick stroll through Facebook and an ad for Julie Garwood’s new book caught my eye. Then the ad above it drew my attention and, I’ll admit, I recoiled a little.

Yeah, that makes me want to work with the little darlings.

    The Garwood looks good, though ;-)

    Especially when you only have to wait for the Ideal Man until August. But wait. Maybe not if the result of the ideal man is the picture above.

    You really have to wonder what inspires advertisers sometimes — and why the people in the business they are promoting would approve such an advertising campaign.

    Maybe they put “child in need” in the Google images search box and went with the first that popped up.

    I think they meant child in need of an advocate, not in need of souls to devour.

    I’ve noticed the social worker ads on fb a lot. Always because the pictures are awful. Awful and scary.

    I don’t get social worker ads. I think it’s in my profile somewhere that my preferred method for child discipline is placing said child in a lawn and leaf bag, tying the top, and placing bag and contents in a corner. (They don’t know I’m joking, I guess.)
