Truthful, Humorous, Or Offensive?

that is the question,

 these billboards appear to have ruffled a few feathers in Armistead Ave. near Downtown Hampton, Virginia, U.S.A. the billboards are the idea of Cheree Owens who is the Labs To Go president, a paternity testing laboratory in Virginia Beach, the first billboard shows a male U.S. soldier standing next to a smiling postman, with the catchphrase “Who’s the Daddy”

the second is on display in Norfolk, and shows a blonde woman with a Pinocchio-like nose next to the catchphrase “Is the Mother a Liar?” and phone number of the paternity testing lab, Labs To Go has defended their ad campaign, saying that they were only meant to be funny, “It was absolutely not to offend anyone,” Labs To Go president, Cheree Owens told News 3, “It was to spark humour, and it only may offend someone who may fit in that category.” so you can only pick one, which is it, truthful, humorous, or offensive? you decide.
