Ads Of Agony; Got Milk?

You ever get peeved when you are reading about how Batman is about to get eaten by a horde of Penguin's psycho penguins, and it gets interrupted by two pages of ads? As a collector of single issues I can see why a TPB can be more tempting. But some of the ads are pretty damn weird. So weird that you almost enjoy them. Like this one:
Now this one is a classic. Someone really macho and cool, like the Hulk, with a milk-beard. Implying that if you drink milk, you might grow up to be just like him!
WHY WOULD YOU WANT THAT!!! This is the Hulk! His life sucks! The entire world is constantly after him, his love-life is painful, he has trauma that would make even the best psychiatrist give up. In fact, his psychiatrist stabbed him in the back!
And there are two more, one with Batman, and one with Wolverine. Oh yes, there is someone I want to be like!
That must be one of he worst ways to advertise your product, that's all I'm saying. If you drink milk, your life sucks... But that must mean that milk is... EVIL! Oh my lord, that means that cows are evil too!
I KNEW IT! The Indians had it ALL wrong! Maybe THAT'S the purpose of "Got Milk?" ads; to warn us against the poison of milk, and that we must kill all the cows if we ever want to be safe. Well vegetarians, you are either with us or the cows! DEATH TO ALL DEMON-COWS!!!

I'm Waezi2, and thanks for wasting time with me.
