Yesterday Gut Check weighed in on Ragù's new "coming of age" commercial, which aired during NBC's Olympics programming on Sunday, August 5. Admittedly, our first reaction was that the "sex sells" approach to pasta-sauce promotion might be a bridge too far.

But upon further cogitation, maybe it's just the beginning of an entirely new direction for Ragù's marketing and advertising departments. In an effort to assist Ragù in expanding its risqué pitch, Gut Check submits five promotional slogans to accompany the new commercial.

After the jump: Pick which of Gut Check's proposed campaign slogans you'd like (or fear) Ragù to run with.

"Spaghetti doesn't erase the memory of seeing you two mid-coitus, Mom."
  • "Spaghetti doesn't erase the memory of seeing you two mid-coitus, Mom."

1. Parents Eat Out, Kid Pigs Out on Ragù

2. Pussghetti & Dadballs = Eating Disorder!

3. Not Even Italian Sausage in the Can Puts Boy Off His Feed

4. Dad Plows, Boy Chows

5. 9 1/2 Weeks Meets 9-1/2-Year-Old Boy
