Thoughtless advertising

After the April 22nd blowout, explosion, and huge Gulf environmental mess from the Deepwater Horizon platform, we should have expected the phrase "blow out" to no longer be used for describing sales. Printed flyers have a long lead time. We might forgive seeing blowout in Memorial Day ads.

Yesterday’s email included the Labor Day gem shown above. Note the fire ball in the background. Why wasn’t the wording changed to something more thoughtful?
