I think it's safe to assume that unless something drastic changes, I will continue to loathe any and all Hardee's commercials that ever come out.

Well, I wouldn't spit one out if I found out I was eating one.  But I almost never intentionally seek them out.  Maybe once or twice within the last year.  I just don't believe in spending money on a product whose advertising annoys me.  Because if I do, that will lead them to continue to believe that annoying advertising is effective, and therefore make their advertisements more annoying.

I actually do the same thing.  In theory, anyway.  Generally if the place's ads annoy me I don't like it anyway (Sonic, Wal-Mart, etc.).  Particularly that Sonic guy though, I just want to slam him in the nuts with an anvil.

I may be a different story since I love big burgers (if I eat Whoppers, I'll have two because one just won't fill me up).  But yes, I too hate Sonic...but only because they are ridiculous on their chili dogs!  Growing up in Detroit, my local Coney Island restaurant sold coneys for $0.75 per coney so I'll be damned if I'll pay 1.99 per!  And its terrible chili, hasn't been aged like a proper coney chili should be.

No, it's a valid complaint.  I'm just feeling very silly tonight.

I used to sell wine. The three wines produced by Chateau Latour are all red, which should be served at room temperature, though it's worth noting that "room temperature" is a specific temperature (around 58-66 degrees) and not really "the temperature of the room" which tends to average a wee bit warmer these days. :)

However, go and translate the French phrases in both my last post and Kodiak's  ;)

EDIT: Didn't factor in wines made from Gamay and the like :)

Sonic commercials are among the stupidest ones ever. I feel my IQ drop everytime I see one.. Lousy food too. I only ate there about 3-4 times. Only thing I liked was the chicken tenders. Everything else is horrid!

Right now I hate the Target ones with the children's pageants. Ugh....

Also sick of Jared Jewelers commercials. Someone goes there and gets a piece of jewelry and everyone freaks out. HE WENT TO JARED!!! OMG!!!

I went to Jared for Ann's wedding band, but that was only because the engagement ring is really nice and distinctive and I needed something quite simple to offset it. Jared is a really mediocre jeweler with a ton of very chintzy baubles if you don't want just a simple inlaid diamond band.
