    The anti-soda tax ads. A small tax isn't going to stop you from buying pop and other sugar-added drinks, something you and your kids shouldn't even be consuming in vast quantities in the first place. If you're really "trying to make ends meet", shouldn't you be spending your money on healthier items? As my dad has pointed out on many occasions, when he was growing up in the 60s, pop was a treat that he and his brother had to beg my grandparents for (and they rarely got it).

    And of course, any and all other political ads at this time of the season.

    Hell...even when I was in elementary school in the late 80's, I had to steal a dollar from my mom's purse, give it to a senior that road the bus, he'd buy one for me after school, and I'd drink it on the bus before I got home. My mom would have been ****ed, now she lets my 10 year old brother drink whatever he wants.

    Hmm...

    Interesting results.

    Too bad they didn't wait a bit. The BK hippie needs to be executed... using that g-d flute.

    I'm in agreement about the Progressive commercials. I know, when I'm a budding actor like the woman who portrays "Flo," I want to go on TV and adopt an annoying personality and look like a skanky tranny... no wait... no I don't.

    And the Toyota ANYTHING commercials with those stupid families. Wow, you've bought X many Toyotas in your life. Good for you. Who cares. Go to the facebook page? The Youtube channel? Why? Because I enjoy watching not funny time wasters that don't prove anything other than you can put way too much garbage on the internet and mislabel it as "content?"

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure Dean Martin's waiting on that chick in whichever corner of hell he's in.

    I think the participants in the Chrysler minivan commercial with the racing kids are all headed for a fiery afterlife as well.

    Between Braves Baseball and Thrashers Hockey on XM, I've heard that ad a LOT in the last two years. And in the radio ads, a girl sings the jingle.

    There's obviously something going on, I'm sure the trades have discussed this advertising war. "Why don't we jog over to namby pamby land where maybe we can find you some confidence, ya jackwagon!" We have a winner.

    If I see another ad for Corn Sugar, I'm taking a trip to Iowa and torching a cornfield. ADM can call it whatever they want, but it's still high fructose corn syrup, and it's still a cheap replacement for real sugar.
