I watch a lot of TV, mainly PBS, and see a lot of ads. (Yes, even PBS/KET have succumbed to running ads these days! Drat.)
I don’t know which is worse..the medicine ads or the lawyer ads. I guess perhaps the lawyer ads about medicine.
If I never hear corticosteroid again it will be too soon..or “messy-feel-lee-oh-ma(ha!), if I could spell it.
And why there so many drugs with made up names starting with X, but pronounced as Z. Something wrong with Z? Are Zeus and Zorro out of favor?
(There’ll always be an ad man, and a lawyer…but must we hear those voices telling us."Don't take X if you are allergic to it!” I mean, give me a break.)
Those lawyer ads are going down hill. The Hammer used to have whimsical, funny ads…no more. The best of what’s left are the Morgan Family ads..even if they "Ulti-muttly” go to the dogs.
But the ads that defy all logic are on the Fox 10pm news..A commercial says.."This portion of the 10pm news is brought to you by Sam’s tattoo and vampire shop.” Two minutes later comes another ad…”This portion of the 10pm news is brought to you by Dewey, Cheatam, and Howe.” Which means what Sam has brought you is a couple of commercials, NOT the news. Why Sam, why?
And so it goes…"ad” nauseum,."
I'm just sayin'
