101 Dumbest Moments in Business

This is a very long list of dumb business moments. It’s a fun (albeit long) read. One of my favorites:

20. He’s a perfect 10 — a 1, plus 9 glasses of sparkling Lambrini!

Having barred alcohol marketing that associates drinking with sex, British regulators block an ad that shows women imbibing Lambrini sparkling wine while using a fishing pole to hook a hunky guy. The Advertising Standards Authority says the ad violates its guidelines because the guy "looks quite attractive and desirable to the girls." It would pass muster if only he were "overweight, middle-aged, balding, etc." The company then runs a version of the ad using a paunchy, chrome-domed model.
