Hungerectomy: I feel ill

Deconstructing the Hungerectomy ad campaign.

It's got a suffix that conjures up hospitals and operating rooms, the closest real word is "hysterectomy," the middle of the word is "recto," and it's all on a brown background.

What were the ad guys thinking?

Update: I saw another one, "Satisfectellant."

The suffix "fectellant" should not be applied to anything one would like people to eat.

My favorite parsing of the word is "Hung? Erect? O My!"
