Every spring, the local farm-and-feed store has a prominently displayed sign saying
Pick Up Chicks Here.
It's really true. They're in an incubator next to the cash register.

On the Not So Successful side was the local connectivity company's TV ad that began with an establishing shot of an isolated cabin in the woods. You were supposed to see the cabin and think "19th-century settlers who need to move into the present century by using our service". Unfortunately I didn't; I thought "satellite internet"-- a service the company doesn't provide, and if they did, it would be lousy. Some appropriately targeted market research would have nipped that particular ad in the bud.
