The world, my friends, is a fascinating place. And by fascinating I mean annoying...
1- Werther's Originals, those hard candies my grandmother used to carry around in her purse, are now promoting their all-new gooey chocolate Originals. Uh, those aren't original people, they are all new, and that is crap marketing.
2- And more bad marketing from the Tassimo coffee people. I luuuuv my Tassimo. I hate their new tv advertising campaign, with the human barcodes, because it's annoying, and because the detail is wrong --- the cartridges are shown being inserted upside down. Wrong is wrong people.
3- Two And A Half Men makes me laugh. I am not proud of this.
4- The Amazon Associates thingamajig on this blog came up with George W Bush's book as the first one it linked me with. Bastards.
5- Michael Buble.
6- The Tim Horton's commercial with the young couple at a hockey game drinking totally fake-looking hot chocolate. If you can afford to make a commercial you can afford to make a good one.
7- Who the hell writes and self-publishes a how-to book for pedophiles? Now the subject of death threats and police investigation is author Phillip Ray Greaves for his 'seminal' work The Pedophile’s Guide To Love And Pleasure, available until last week on Amazon.
8- PBS edited out Tina Fey's biting comments about Sarah Palin at the Mark Twain awards, claiming it was because the show ran long and had nothing to do with Fey's or Palin's politics. And yet you found time to show people walking up to the stage and back, over and over and over. Uh-huh.9- A woman called 911 about Subway burning her sandwich.
10- Inspired by the TV show Chuck, some dude in Oregon legally changed his name to Captain Awesome. Schmuck...
