TV Just Keeps Getting Better....

I tend to watch the Food Network in the afternoon. Watch is a relative term, since it is mostly background noise while I putter around the house. I figure it is safe for my boys, they are busy playing, but don't bug me about their shows because, hey, something is already on! Genius, I know!
I was answering some email, watching Racheal Ray, and playing with the boys, when I think one of the WORST commercials I have seen in a while came on.
It starts with this guy getting ready to leave his house/townhouse when he sees this VERY cute girl, who happens to be a plumber go into the building next door. Well of course, being a GUY, he races into his house to try and break something pipe related. You think, pretty funny, single guy, trying to get the hot girl to fix something so he can drool over her and perhaps awkwardly ask her out. He is in the bathroom, LITERALLY flushing everything he can reach down the toilet to clog it up. And then I saw a bra go down, and I started to wonder a little. And then when he is POURING dogfood down, his WIFE, thats right, I said wife, pops her head around the corner, with a look of "What on EARTH are you doing??" look on her face. Why, preparing to cheat on you my dear.... Obviously thats not what the punchline was, it was a commercial for Kohler, the brand that does bathroom fixtures, faucets, toilets, and tubs.
Hmmmmm, what is the world coming to? I know we all know the answer to that one, but I was just a little surprised to see it so blatant.

Oh, man, I've seen that one! There are so many commercials that drive me nuts. I have my own "hmmmmm" for that one. "Hmmm, buddy, maybe if you paid that much attention to your wife..." well, you fill in the rest!
I blogged about a recent K of C commercial where they announcer says something like, "Dinner on a weeknight? What a shocker!" Like no one ever cooks during the week! Ever!
I could go on for five pages about commercials...

Yeah, those type of commercials really irk me. It's like the marketers need to get a clue, or they really don't care. It's already bad enough that it's teaching your kids to flush everything down the toilet! The things people think are acceptable these days, or even just funny.

Okay...that's enough ranting from me... ;)
