That's almost it: Essentially people would make little clay boxes (kind of like Piggy banks only not whimsically shaped like a piggy) which were put out in the run up to Christmas so people could show their appreciation for the work done throughout the year. The day after Christmas the boxes would be opened (well smashed) and the money would be divvied up. So Boxing Day = Christmas Bonus Day really :)

Well at least I knew it involved employees and didn't have to do with beating each other up.   ;D

Depends on how the funds are divvied up I suppose....

Anybody scene the new Clean Coal ad talking about the impressive clean coal technology with that guy yelling in the desert.  I couldn't tell if it was for or against clean coal until the text at the end.  And even then I was surprised that it was against it by the way the thing was put together.

One commercial that always pissed me off were those uber-creepy and disturbing Charmin Bear commercials.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/vBNcQgkXEWE&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/vBNcQgkXEWE&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1</a>

It doesn't make me think about soft, sturdy toilet paper. It makes me think about bear crap.

Dammit, Maverick! Why don't you play by the rules?!

"About a pound."

I can definitely see how that would be annoying after seeing it more than once.

Must be tough for an Advertising firm to come up with subtle ways to sell toilet paper without becoming disgusting...

Yes apparently the only thing harder to find subtlety for is maxi pads...have you seen the one where the water tower explodes?

Nope, but I'd say the regular ones do enough damage. I can't remember the last time I went to the bathroom and saw blue, but I guess that's what I'm supposed to see. I'm a freak!

Yep you're definitely miswired; it should be blue and completely fluid.
