I wasn't going to touch that one Minstrel! It's no wonder the poor girl has these strange visions and all after living off jello for a month. That'd be enough to send anyone over the edge!
Yes... it would also explain why sticking her head into a freezer to lick the fish sticks box doesn't strike her as unusual... :-)Originally Posted by rocky1
I found this on a Molson Canadian add somewhere, and i now dedicate it to Mikmik
Which art in barrels,
Hallowed br thy drink.
Thy will be drunk (or I will be drunk),
At home as in the tavern.
Give us this day,
Our foamy head,
And forgive us our spillages,
As we forgive those that spill against us.
And lead us not into incarceration,
But deliver us from hangovers.
For thine is the beer,
The bitter and the lager,
For ever and ever.
OMG! I came to the startling realization last night that Wen is saner than we think! Or, at least she's got allot of company on the dark side if not, anyhow. And thus, this appeared the perfect place to vent this rant!
I was lying in bed watching Television in my usual state of insomnia, when a Television commercial (one trying to sell me a TV, eh), came on Television. Now usually I ignore such realizing the irony, not to mention the sheer stupidity of advertising such, in such fashion, but.... having just left here, and having nothing better to think about, my mind began to wander. (I think it came back this morning, I'm not sure though!)
But, anyhow... one truly has to wonder about anyone that would advertise their TV on your TV. They boast what a fabulous picture their high quality product has, yet I found the picture on the 27 inch high definition, high priced unit they were advertising, oddly enough was no better than the picture on my sale priced $89, 19-inch! And, I thought to my self, "You know Self, that's odd!"
My self started to explain that it really wasn't odd that it was rationalized by the fact that quality on their set was limited too quality on my set, before I interjected that I wasn't referring to that, I was instead referring to the fact that all of those college educated advertising geniuses hadn't figured it out. I mean really, if you're going to advertise a TV shouldn't you be hauling it from door to door showing off how good the picture is.
Realistically if you advertise a TV on TV it is entirely limited by the quality of the TV upon which the commercial of your TV is aired. I mean, who do they think they're fooling here... "Our $2500 plasma screen with 8 speaker surround sound offers the highest definition video and audio quality imaginable, why just look what a picture it has! And, that sound... why it's just like you're sitting in the crowd at the symphony."
Not only does it look just like the picture on my $89 sale priced TV, it fits inside of the same 19 screen! Not only that but the surround sound, sounds just like those 2 cheap little inch and a half diameter speakers on my $89 TV too. They really haven't impressed me! None! Not even a little! I mean wouldn't it be bad advertising to advertise on a bad TV, "Why just look at the quality of that picture!" when it looks like $#!+
Then there is the Bose Acoustic Wave Radio commercials, or whatever their latest design is. Hell, it always sounded just like the same old $9, rained on the speaker a dozen times, bounced around in the back of the truck with the tools, jobsite radio we listened too everday at lunch, when Paul Harvey was playing those ads. Why would I want to spend a $100 on it!
And, thus one has to wonder if Wen isn't maybe on a little more even plain than was initially anticipated here, because not to mention those that produce these commercials, there are those out there in the world that buy these commercials, and in turn buy these products, when by virtue of the nature of advertising, they are no better than the products they already own!
Who was it said, "A fool and his money are soon parted." anyhow?
Sorta makes you wonder what those folks try to talk too in their cupboads, don't it Minstrel?
You really have to lay off the cough syrup, dude...Originally Posted by rocky1
Actually, it makes me wonder more just how long you've been standing out there in that river... :-)Sorta makes you wonder what those folks try to talk too in their cupboads, don't it Minstrel?
"Boy left standing in river by parents rescued after 19 years"
But... you are right about those commercials...
only 1 in 5 hey? hmmmmm...its a bit of a worry! ;-)
Worse yet, in a very odd kind of way (and I stress ODD!), you can see an 'element' of logic in it. About as much as "if you break your leg, dont coming running to me for help".
Now Rocky me mate ....been slippin into that moonshine hey? ;-)
And Wen !! To think they picked on you ! ;-)

It' time for Progressive Web & IT Development!
Unfortunately it cannot be blamed upon drink, nor smoke! And, I gave up on the mind altering drugs my physician pushed upon me, as they made me feel worse than not sleeping at night. Thus it can only be blamed upon insanity by association! And, guess where I'm associatin' most!!!
That's OK Rocky we all know that you are associatin' with the rest of the USA, we just thought that you may have actually been the exception to the rule.Originally Posted by rocky1
Ducks for cover from Wen
Well Greyhawk... I'm close enough to the border that I could relate to the Moulson Prayer, even if it were dedicated to MikMik!
And, I don't know who to point fingers at here as far as associating, because the score card reads 3 Canadians, 2 Americans, and 1 Australian who's lived all three places, so that we can't really determine where she might have inherited the traits found in this thread!
It would however appear insanity in advertising is globally unilateral!
