It Really Makes Me Want To Spit

Wed Jun 28, 2006 10:37 pm

Listening to and watching radio/TV in the UK in the afternoon. The blinking adverts. I really could put it in 'basic' terms but!

'If you've had an accident contact (whichever company) it's all free..'

There are people dying all over the World. For just blurrr pence a day you could help.

For your car,home,contents, pet(?) insurance contact (whichever)

If you have dandruff use 'Lead and Boulders' and put Dove on your skin. Like, I want a bird fluttering on my face????

Got that bloated feeling? Try the new deluxe tablet, drink, from (whichever).

Try a bleeding tube up yer backside and squeeze. Cue smile

 boggled 

Finally, we have numerous adverts for loans. Anything from a pound (not really) to whatever we can get you into debt for.

Looking at all the things I need/should help with, provide cover for, I need to borrow £1000,000.

On second thoughts, I think I'll just pop down the coast and jump into the...

Bouncy castle at Poole.

What!

Did you think I'd do meself in.

Noooo! Life's too precious and I'm already loaded.

Now where did I put that detonator

 bomb 

Rant (more like rabid) over  bigthumbsup

It's OK... just call XYZ psychotherapists at 1-800-FREAKIN-NUTS for a FREE trial session if you experience this kind of emotional stress again.  Wink

That's actually a pretty dam accurate account of the adverts!

My personal favourite is 'The Pi Helpline' which is advertised by some fat bloke rambling on about something or other. The 'Pi' stands for Personal Injury but I originally thought it was the 'Pie Helpline'. Makes more sense to me!

Just be thankful you aren't in the US, where there are even more adverts per hour! Additionally, everything that can be sponsored on TV is, so that on ESPN you get the 'KIA Half time report' on a TV programme sponsored by Budweiser and Cingular among others!

The Brits are lucky. They don't have to put up with that Billy Mays guy. He yells during the whole commercial.

But without them how would I have known that I have rheumatoid arthritis, migraines, gum disease, enlarged prostate, small penis, ulcers, poison ivy, jaundice, measles, chicken pox, labor pains, menstrual cramps, and acute hearing loss? Of course, once I learned all this I became depressed, which triggered my allergies and hypoglycemia. So I got my prescriptions, but was having trouble reading them so I went out and had Lasik surgery at the Boothe Eyecare and Laser Center. They screwed it up, but I remembered a couple of lawyers around town: Brian Loncar, one call that's all; and Jim Adler, the Texas hammer. So I called them with my personal injury claim, settled out of court, and then bought a new house on Lake Lewisville in a new, exciting community! It has to be since that's what they said on tv! And now I'm claritin clear, have a big boost of confidence, am putting on a happy face, and am doing much better. Of course, I do have some mild side effects that include diarreah, blood loss, fatigue, leperosy, dry mouth, headaches, joint pain, burning in the genital area, constipation, a heart murmur, liver cancer, nausea, and an aversion to midgets, but those are manageable according to the new ads I just saw! Thank goodness for tv and modern medicine!

Well, I have to go now. Nike just came out with some new soccer shoes that will allow me to play with Beckam, Ronaldo, Drogba, Henry, Adu, and others according to their commercial. And thanks to my new H2, financed through ditech.com, I'm going places. Like McDonald's. Da da da da da, I'm lovin' it.
