How odd. I guess most of "us" are savvy and smart, and stuff; but I always imagine that "we" are rather "above the curve"...

I saw some of those ads linked in metafilter, in a positive light. Hmmm...

Lookingforward to stepping forward.

A better descriptor would be... "Ten of the most un-PC ads in the last decade" -- it doesn't make them dumb. A dumb ad is one that does not sell the product. But being PC does not make an ad smart, nor does making it unPC make it a bad ad. I applaud the advertisers and agencies for trying to keep the world from getting Walmartized.
