Something short about something sweet
Of course, I also find it hilarious that the obvious needs labels, like paper coffee cups that remind you that contents may be really frigging hot, kids' Superman capes with notes alerting you this does not enable the wearer to fly, and disclaimers hidden in CGI-heavy television ads to let you know that what you see is definitely not what you get. Below is something bound to give some tightassed adults nightmares: rumor has it that Jimmy Hoffa was buried in this small town, and what do the residents do? Bake undead cupcakes in commemoration!
I can't remember when I've been offended by a commercial. Someone needs to produce a really offensive one, so I can get all bothered over it.
I remember the Paris Hilton Carl's Junior one that really stirred up a lot of commotion. I suppose they sold a lot of burgers to men after than one.
I will upload the icicle pics I took soon. Most likely tomorrow.
I look forward to that pic. ;-)
Stuff that people get offended over is amazing. You will appreciate this one, JD: Some years ago, "America's number one Christian commedian" Mike Warnke admitted that at one time he smoked dope. Some of the faithful flock threw out their Warnke albums, aghast that their saint had been pothead! What struck me as odd about this was that these were the same people who would invite other reformed drug addicts to their churches to speak about their experiences. What, the difference is that one person didn't put it on his resume because that's not what he's there to talk about, and the other did because he is? Grrr. As Mike said on one of those albums... Stuff happens.
He admittedly inhaled!! Oh My GOD!!
I left this comment to you on my blog, but you may not have read it:
Mush: One day next week, I am going to do a post with a link to your icicle lights site and post my pics of the home I found and invite others to add theirs to your site. I think there may be some others who have aggregious icicle lights offenders in their home towns.
Thanks for the impending advertisement!
here's the currently running commercial that gets my goat every time i see it: it's a kool-aid spot that has the kool-aid pitcher on a deserted island and "SUS" is drawn in the sand. the hero kids land via helicopter saying, "we saw your SOS" and kool says, "that's not SOS it's SUS. Save Enough ..." i forget what the heck we're supposed to save but come on! Hey, Kool Aid! learn to spell you idiot cartoon. i know your name is spelled wrong to look Kool, but hey, stupidity ain't so cool.
