How Do You Market a Beverage That Looks Like Pee?

Beer.  You have to admit that unless you're dealing with most American beers (which are generally of the Pilsner variety, although we've been branching out nicely over the last few years), you're dealing with a drink that looks like freshly sprayed piss.  And marketing firms know this.  So how do they get around the "Urine Factor?"  Read on for a few examples...

Women’s Weird And Whimsical Fashion: The Umbrella Dress

Sometimes it's unfortunate that the most talked about fashion items only make it to a period of conceptualization and never actually hit the streets or the runways. In some cases, they've been created strictly for the purpose of chatter, where the fashion isn't the focus at all, but a manipulative marketing ploy is.

7 Discreet Wallets And Purses That Pick-Pocketers Will Never Suspect

These fashions are more about fun than they are about function. All of the designs give you a place to store your stuff just like a wallet or purse, but they do so in such a "discreet" way that no one will ever guess that's where you stashed your cash.
