A radio ad is now marketing Hooked on Phonics to illiterate adults. An illiterate adult had to either be skipping school at an early age or their teachers called in a lot.
I’m sure admitting to being illiterate is as embarrassing as showing up to school the next day after losing a fight.
Doesn’t illiteracy only happen in 3rd world countries like, Somalia, Ethiopia or Alabama?
And what could be more embarrassing than being illiterate and having to call to order the program by dialing 1-800-ABCDEFG?
