Wait, what?

So the voice-over on the TeeWee commercial in the other room said "Have you been seriously injured in an accident?" but I heard it "Have you been seriously injured by an axe murderer?" and I wondered just how a personal injury attorney was going to help if I've been messed up by some maniac, unless he was one of those rare wealthy psychos swinging a high-end Gransfors Bruks tree-felling implement.

I like the one for the attorneys that says "have you or anyone you know been seriously injured or died from (insert defective drug here)".

If I was dead I wouldn't be watching the ads on TV. Unless it was ZTV (zombie television).

I have several times considered calling the advertising law firm and say "I took (insert defective drug here) for X months and then I died. I am certain that (alleged defective drug) caused my death. How much money can I get?"

Heh.

I got a letter from my insurance provider last week, wanting to know if my recent short-term disability claim involved any other responsible parties. I called and said that no, it didn't. Took five minutes. I think they were disappointed that they couldn't make anyone else pay for their time and trouble.

No comment on Stupid Lawyer Sds but on the Say What? Front.... I pulled into a Sonic and I SWEAR the sign on the wall said enjoy a "USED" latte!... no, of course it couldn't have said "ICED" latte!

...I don't always mutilate people with an axe, but when I do, I use a Gransfors Bruks.

I bet Gransfors would make you a person-limbing axe, custom, if you paid in advance.

"...suffering from all sorts of colitis"

instead of "....suffering from ulcerative colitis"

Nope, you're not alone here.

"Have you been seriously injured by an axe murderer?"

Wouldn't it just be my luck if I got the incompetent one who couldn't finish the job...

Thanks for the laughs. :)
