Have Ford Executives...

...been living in a cave or something? What morons thought this was a good idea to begin with?

Ford splits with Eminem: report
Paper says Ford initially happy when rap star wanted new Ford for video, but lyrics raised concerns.

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Ford Motor Co. is ending a newly formed relationship with rapper Eminem, according to a published report.

The Detroit News reported that the split comes because of concerns of Ford executives over the title and lyrics of the artist's newest song. The three-word title includes a vulgarity.

A vulgarity?! From the mouth Slim Shady kisses his mother with?!
And here I was all set to buy me a Ford because they were gonna sign Eminem as a spokesman.

It never should have gotten to a marriage to begin with, one would think. I mean "lyrics raised concerns..."? Like that's news with this loser? What planet have they been on for the past 5 years?

A textbook example of corporate divorce from reality.

I mean, even the folks who like this guy have got to admit he's way too much of a potty mouth to be an ad spokesman.
