He is in for a rude awakening!

I HATE television commercials. I know... a dreaded necessity.

I despise some more than others. I can't stand the Progressive Insurance gal.

Bill can't stand the Gillette razor blade commercial where there are two guys with shaving cream on their hands and faces who are ordering razor blades on their cell phones. One speaks into his cell phone and the other pokes cell phone buttons with his nose.

That doesn't annoy him. It is the fact that their hands AND their faces are covered in shaving cream. He says, "Why do they cover their entire hands? Nobody puts that much shaving cream on their hands. You dab and smear, not coat your hands. Plus, why don't they just wash their hands? They already have shave cream on their faces."

I couldn't agree more. Most product advertisements are ridiculous, and umm, dumb.

Bill waited until I was in the bathroom with door ajar, and shouted, "I need help."
I flung the door open and there he stood, his hands covered in shaving cream as though he had on mittens, his face soaped with white fluff. "Honey, I need to order more razor blades."

He doesn't know it, but sometime when he least expects it, "Flo" is going to get him.

Funny column. My stepson's friend, recently divorced, told him one day that he'd been having troubling dreams. He'd dreamed that he was dating Flo, and he thought he'd found true love. True story! I watch mostly Masterpiece on commercials other than Viking Cruises, which I've taken and loved. xox

That seems like the worst possible time and way to order new razor blades.

Commercials are crazy...BUT here we are talking about it right now!

Heh, heh! At least that was one of Bill's tamer pranks.

I wish Hick had a sense of humor. He was born without a funny bone. That, combined with the fact that he has a beard, makes me pretty sure I won't be getting this kind of joke from him.

Commercials are crazy - but they work!

It's usually the commercials we hate the most that we remember. The ones that get me are those that make people look stupid.

Haha! Too funny! The commercial that I can't stand is the Sonic commercial with the two idiots in the car. I will never go to Sonic, EVER, because of those stupid commercials.

Connie said...

Hahaha! I guess he made a good point. I hate the commercials for prescription medicines where they go on and on and on about possible side effects of the pills being advertised.

Mary Horner said...

I can't help but wonder about the fact that half of the commercials are for prescription drugs, and the other half are for lawyers trying to find people who took those drugs and suffered serious side effects!
