A Homonym Makes for a Wonderfully Appropriate Advertising Slogan - No Ifs, Ands or Buts About It

"No Ifs, Ands or Butts."
Apparently Hebrew National has been running 15- and 30-second spot television commercials with the above illustration and slogan for a couple of years now. As I don't watch a whole lot of TV, I just saw saw the ad for the first time about a week ago and I love it.

I grew up loving hot dogs, all the while being told that they are made out of the least desirable parts of animals, so I love the homonymical wordplay involved with the cliche "no ifs, ands or buts about it," and with the word "butt."
