Those witty Brits

Those witty Brits: I don’t get it. Just because a magazine’s advertising tries to be witty by using poor, old hungry people to set up a visual joke, why should viewers be offended? (To anyone just landing on this blog by mistake, the last sentece is a joke. I really do not condone the use of poor, old hungry people as characters in a television “advert” in which they go hungry while waiting for the meals-on-wheels delivery person to put down the magazine they are reading and bring them their lunch.)
