Things that amuse me, annoy me and my funny friends

I have been doing some reading but today is ironing day. Ugh. I've been putting it off for too long and the pile is slightly frightening. I'm getting there though.

This commercial makes me smile every time it's on TV. The guy in the light blue shirt kills me.



Then I saw this commercial today and I just had to shake my head. The companies who prey on the fear of germs and the threat to our life they apparently pose seems completely at odds with the "we must recycle" messages that are put out there. Makes me crazy how lazy people are. Rather than wash the towels thus making them germ free, we'll just use paper towels and fill up the landfill. But hey, I'll never have a germ on me.




Actually I found this parody making my point exactly when I was looking for the video.



And to finish on an up-note now that I've gotten that off my chest. :-) My friends at Cocky & Rude started a broken telephone type game with some of us who hang out. Mikey started with a sentence, then someone draws a picture depicting that sentence, then the next person makes up a sentence based on the picture and on and on until you hit the end and you see if you are close to the original. Our second one just went up today and it's hilarious. My daughter is part of this, she's the one noted as "the kid". I was so impressed with her drawing. She said she gave dictionary.com a work-out since I can barely understand David's sentence myself but she did an amazing job. They are so funny. Hopefully we'll be starting round 3 soon. I'm also going to be doing the Biggest Cock and Rudest Loser contest there. I guess I won't win the first one, but it's basically a weight loss thing we're doing in teams. So hopefully I won't let my partner down. Wed. is our first weigh in and then we are off. Ack! Nothing like a little public humiliation to keep me on track. Anyway, stop by and check out our goofy story. You can click on the logo below to get there.

That's a dutch beer commercial. There is another one where they have a tube post / delivery system through the whole house.

Tam said...

I realized I had the original version after I posted it, but you really don't need words. However the one they play here is the exact same, just with dubbed English I guess. It just makes me smile. I'll have to look for the other one.

We had the Heineken add over her before christmas and I loved it - sort of went with the whole football mania that exist over here....

Fingers cross for you and the weigh thing - I have given up....

My excuse - If I was meant to be slim, I wouldn't have learn to cook... and I am sticking with that..

:)
