    That Direct TV ad where they are reading a guys will and the son or whoever gets the Direct TV subscription thing then starts yelling his head off. Man! As soon as that one comes on we either mute the tv or change the station. I hate that one!

    As for the medicines, there was an ad on last night for a pain med and the side effects were lymphomia and "certain other cancers." You know, there are many other RA medications to choose from than something that has shown such a strong possibility of cancer that they have to claim it in their ad. Now I have to remember which medication that was...

    I hope it's ok that i disagreed with King slightly in one instance
    Of COURSE it's ok! He's Stephen King, not God.

    And if I hear one more woman on a commercial tell me to "have a HAPPY period," I'll go find her and dot both her eyes!

    Good god, that woman is like nails across a chalkboard.

    I know exactly how you feel. The real sad part is that half of those spokes people probably had lipo surgery to lose the weight. I always wondered if Jared really lost all that weight by eating subs too.

    The worst ad for me is the "Ped Egg". It shaves your dead foot skin off like parmesan cheeseThe woman looks so happy while shes doing it too.

    Hi,

    That's the best bit IMO!

    But then, I'm a huge Hugh Lofting fan, in fact, I see that the Dr. Dolittle books are now available for FREE download from Project Gutenberg, I know what I'll be re-reading in the near future!
