I could be an ad exec...

I've always thought that a good idea for a car commercial would be to have a car pull alongside a big-rig and have the truck driver signal the driver of the car and make the "blow your horn" motion with his arm. Then the driver of the car would comply, eliciting a big kid-like grin on the trucker's face as the car pulls away.

Now if you see that kind of commercial on the air anytime soon, be sure and tell them where to direct the royalties for the idea...

but it's your own kind, Porky!

Has anyone else besides me noticed how many barbecue places use pigs standing at a barbecue pit in their logos? Do the people who come up with these think that it's cute in a cannibalistic sort of way?

pangs of guilt

I own eight Coca-Cola glasses. I use them to drink Diet Dr Pepper.

I feel like such a hypocrite.

bad commercial, okay pizza

On that "Bad Andy" Domino's Pizza commercial where Andy sneaks up on that delivery guy in the shower, two things come to mind. First, why is he wearing his Domino's cap in the shower? Second, why in the world is he showering at a Domino's at all?

Am I the only one who finds this stupid?
