An unfortunate series of words

Seen in the paper today (April 10) was an advertisement for department store bigwigs TJ Maxx. I haven't been able to find this ad online, but the header is "Clearance Gone WILD"! Yeah. Echoing, natch, "Girls Gone Wild", the no-core porn phenom produced by Joe Francis. Joe Francis who is destined for the cheapskate circle of hell. Hey man, go ahead and show the coeds' tits, but get model releases and give them at least enough money for an iced latte. Anyway, it's kind of a not-good association for a sale that includes "misses', juniors' & kids spring tops & bottoms." And yeah, you could read more and more into it.

Of course, this company has also had some hacker trouble. The twenty-first century hasn't been all that good to them.
