Presented (almost) Without Comment:





















Okay, so Barry wants me to refinance my nonexistent underwater mortgage and go back to school. What does Congress have to say to this profligacy?

Well, Nancy says (at least subliminally suggested by the ad on the right) that I'm supposed to get all swoon-y over some metrosexual guy who spends more on skin care products than I do.

Festive.

It's the WebAds of the Apocalypse.

I'm buying precious metals, canned goods, and ammunition...

Ha!

I KNOW you've seen the ads about teeth whitening. The chick with the flashlight rammed in her mouth suggests to me I need streaming porn, which I will gleefully decline because my teeth are already white, and I'm more-than-happily married.

And, I swear by all that is holy and sacred, if my dentist shoves a flashlight in my mouth, there will be serious hell to pay. That chick looks freakishly uncomfortable.

Seems like whenever an ad wants me to make a massive and basically suicidal financial decision, it mentions Obama. It's almost like they're making some assumptions about the kind of people likely to make suicidal financial decisions, and who they trust.

Maybe I should go into that business. "Obama Asks Moms to Move to Guyana!" There's a dollar in there someplace.

"You have GOT to get Adblock Plus."

Commercials on TV became funnier than the actual programs about a decade ago. The internets are finally catching up...

If I ever have a date with more skin care products then me he is SO being left with a cold handshake at the door.

Wow, BO is quite the guy: sending us back to college, refinancing our mortgages, winning the nobel peace prize for something (I forget just what), and becoming the gun and ammo salesperson of the year. He's a busy guy!

It seems to me you repeat yourself (twice) with that last sentence.

Don't forget buying toilet paper and beer as well for that bunker.

I dunno - I always thought that "skin care products for men" was shaving cream.

But I have to say, I think about ditching Sitemeter because of those ads. The ones with animated walking people are the worst.

Sadly, Technorati has done a favor to the Sitemeter advertising department.

Screw precious metals, I'm stocking up on 100-watt incandescent bulbs. That's good barterin' stuff.

And easier with the startup voltage on your now extant home solar/battery array than the CFL's would ever be.

Sorry, professional geekout.

To expound on what anonymous inferred:

ammunition IS precious metals
