Is it just me?

After spending several hours in front of the television while I nursed a headcold last week, I began wondering about a few things about the advertisements I saw.

Things like:

Am I the only one who's bothered by the fact that the guy in the "Extense natural male enhancement" commercial isn't wearing a wedding ring?

Am I the only one who would rather see advertisements for Trojan Condoms than advertisements for (Furthermore, am I the only one who thinks is prostitution with a loophole?)

Am I the only one who knows there's a second verse to "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is!" ? (Maybe my grandma made that up. Hmmmm...)

Am I the only one that feels sorry for the boogers in the Mucinex commercial?

Am I the only one who finds it hilarious that Benadryl's new slogan is, "You can't pause life," and yet taking Benadryl for allergies requires a four-hour nap?

Am I the only one who is immature enough to giggle at the name Aciphex?

Just curious.

Ok, what kind of cold medicine were you using, I WANT SOME!!!!!

Ok, on the sex ones, NO, I'm not laughing....Those are just not right. I have issues with them. Didn't notice the no wedding ring thing...but grrrr, that makes me even madder about them now.

The rest of these....I was cracking up, girl.

I hadn't heard of, mmmmm. But there is a swingers advertisement on my clipart website that creeps me out. Something like "Are you married and bored?"

"You can't pause life," and yet taking Benadryl for allergies requires a four-hour nap? This one cracks me up! I am not the same the whole next day! :)

Great post!

Benadryl is the devil. Well it's definitely not for me. When I was having an allergic reaction to something I couldn't identify, I end up in these horrible period of half-sleep, sort of like sleep paralysis, which is something I've had before too...

The last two totally had me LOL!

I can't stand the explicit commercials. I don't even like the Viagra commercials, because of the little voiceover about side effects that talks about a certain side effect that can last eight hours. That's just not something I want to be bombarded with as I try to rest in my home. No wonder I don't watch much TV anymore.
