Well, you'd at least have a convenient place to hang things from for a few hours.

(I am a lesser person for that; this I understand.)

Yeah, but think of all the walls, door jams and table corners you'd run into....

EDIT:  Back to commercials to hate....those DirecTV commercials that are movie characters stopping in midscene to pitch the dish.  Aliens being the lastest one.

Not that they're badly done - just the opposite.  But when you think what it must have cost them to get the rights to the movies and pay the actors - Shatner, Jessica Simpson & Sigourney Weaver, just to name a few - imagine how much of your DirecTV bill is paying for that!

Oh, one I was just commenting on: Horror commercials. These seem most prevalent before movies, for some reason. Just these disturbing advertisements. One I saw was something about "getting cubed" or some such thing, and had a commercial where some mad scientist is giving people square heads. Another, which I saw before Sunshine, had goblins killing and eating people to sell cars. WHAT THE HELL? Are you trying to sell me stuff by making me feel sick to my stomach before my movie? Screw you, advertisers. Stop trying to be clever and just try to sell, a**whipes.

Those viagra/viagra derivative commercials also annoy me. I do feel sad for the guy featured in them though.

Doesn't it make you want to vomit when the voice over says "If you experience an erection lasting longer than 4 hours..."


Or gag, as the case may be...

Well, unless I missed a memo, there are only actually 2 things that you CAN do with it. Everything else is just semantics. ;)

That DOES depend on how creative you are, but it really is a limited piece of flesh overall. I can use my feet to open doors, but.... yeah, not going to explore this line of thought any further.

Makes a handy towel rack in a pinch. :P

There's a third if you want Cynthia Albritton's opinion.

I don't know if this has been mentioned but....

I'm watching The Godfather on Bravo again and they keep showing this commercial for a perfume with Sarah Jessica "Why the long face?" Parker....the long version of this.....

Yeah, I want a scent that makes me turn into a scary, emaciated harpy who goes around in ugly prom dresses kicking out store windows.

It's what I aspire to.   ::)

Seriously though....she looks like she's been doing crystal meth for a week.

And I lived in a homeless shelter for an extended period of time....I know what that looks like.   :speechless:
