Apparently, Murder and Cannibalism Count as Bus Rage

Greyhound Pulls Campaign After Horrific Incident in Canada

By Published on .

Here at Adages HQ, we were all so fascinated and horrified with last week's news that a lunatic on a Greyhound bus in Canada stabbed a fellow passenger to death, beheaded him and -- according to some reports -- snacked on his flesh, that we didn't even consider there was an advertising angle to the story. Well, there is. The tagline for a Greyhound campaign running in Canada is "There's a reason you've never heard of 'bus rage.'" According to AP reports, Greyhound will be removing that campaign as quickly as possible. Probably a smart move. (Via Gawker)
