A number of years ago the American Beef Council or some purveyor of fine meats used the saying “Give the Gift of Meat” as a holiday sales campaign slogan. Those of us with somewhat juvenile senses of humor thought that was incredibly funny.
Today there are still some businesses that use the slogan without trying to be intentionally comedic. Many of these ad campaigns come from Australia, where it is well-known that the inhabitants are generally free of the affliction of irony.
