Paul is (not) dead

I had no idea that there are still people out there who believe Paul McCartney has been dead for decades. I guess it's like rock 'n' roll's very own Flat Earth Society.

And now, a personal note.

Dear Cialis guy,

I'm so sorry you suffer from erectile dysfunction. Really, I am. But did you really have to show up during the commercial break on National Geographic last night and talk about it ad nauseum in front of my daughter and her friend? I had to keep pretending to be very concerned about the weather and flipping over to the Weather Channel. I would let a reasonable amount of time pass and then check back, and there you were -- still talking about your extremely personal problem. The 8-year-old girls in my living room last night were interested in a documentary about ancient Egypt and were not really needing an education in erectile dysfunction.

Best of luck to you, but in the future, please keep this problem to yourself.

    AMEN!!! I am so so tired of commercials for those drugs ... and I don't have children that need me to censor the TV for them!

    I feel your pain. I will be watching TV with my 15 year old step-son and the commercials are for feminine hygeine products, ed pills, kotex and Victoria Sectret bras. It never fails.

    I think the worst one is the one with the guy who has the fake smile. It just feels like it's the most, I don't know, graphic or something. Your girls probably had no idea you weren't interested in the weather. Did Julia see the picture of the whale that washed up on the shore with the super enlarged tongue? It made me think of her. Because it sounds like something that would fascinate her - not because she has an enlarged tongue...

    THANK YOU! I feel self-conscious enough in front of my husband, not to mention my kids!

    Thank goodness for DVR! I hate all those commercials too. Now, we DVR and watch later. {grin}

    Oh, AMEN. I hate those. I have two boys, and I am dreading the day they question me about the Vagisil commercials, or Tampax, or any of that stuff. Puh-leeze!

    Preach on sista! The "natural male enhancement" commercials are what get me. I know Kolby is going to ask someday what that means and really, I'm not sure I even understand it! And that annoying whistling! Yikes!

    I thought it was going to be some victory story about some dude getting his GED.

    I can't remember the product, but it's a radio commercial where a woman is asking a druggist a question about something . . . and he says the product you're looking for is (name of product) and you must want it for hemmoroids.

    She then says, not exactly . . . and HE says, "Oh, then you must want it for another delicate area!"

    Thank goodness MY child is still clueless about such things . . . but heaven help us when he starts figuring them out!
