This ad from Network World is the most tasteless ad I've seen in a long time. This goes way beyond clever and humorous, to cruel and malicious.

Regardless of one's opinion of former Vice President Dan Quayle, any ad that resorts to portraying a public figure as stupid is uncalled for and reflects poorly on the advertiser, in this case Network Access Equipment.
