Burn Energy Drink - Missing letters - posters, Switzerland

These posters from ask "are you bad enough?" and I realize that I'm not, because I filled the missing letters in to read Dock, Boots and Luck - so my head is still firmly at the shoe-sale in the harbor where I scored some seven inch heel fake fur cuff designer boots for like no money.

Ikea - Ikea kitchen's improve your life / Love your home - print, Canada

Je regrette, mais... as you adgrunts know my French totally sucks, but not so bad I can't see what they've done here with the headlines. Perfect: "Turns grilled cheese sandwiches into croque-monsieurs" in English becomes "Transforme les patates pilées en pommes purée". You don't need to know the language well to see that they have the exact same tone of voice in those lines.
