I was looking at an advert for a water charity on the tube today, and misread a sentence ending
...the little brother who died of a fever two years ago.)

God, I hate that advert. Even if the story was completely factually true (it certainly sounds plausible), the relentless sentimentality made my teeth itch. First time I read it I thought there must be a punchline somewhere, so it's probably just as well I didn't hallucinate the emoticon myself.

It was the first time I'd seen it, as I don't take the tube a lot these days, but it did stick out for being pretty "feel good about yourselves middle-class charity-givers, no REALLY".
