Make a list!

Things I'm tired of. The list might be endless. Stupid people. That's number one. Second on the list would be the countless pharmaceutical commercials and other really dumb commercials that constantly bombard our living rooms. It's non-stop.

Whatever happened to simple commercials like "Silly Wabbit, Kix is for kids!"? Or car commercials that made our mouths water and make us want to go out and buy one.

Now we're treated to a mop that just wants to come home (Don't you hate the song that goes with this commercial?) and do the job, a pile of money with eyeballs, and one commercial in particular for Chantix for those who would like to stop smoking.

The commercial cautions that users might encounter strange dreams (bring it on!), suicidal urges, depression, agitation, hostility . . .

And the makers of Chantrix also caution this:

"Patients with serious psychiatric illness such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depressive disorder did not participate in the pre-marketing studies of CHANTIX and the safety and efficacy of CHANTIX in such patients has not been established."

I'm thinking that if you want to drive someone nuts who's already bonkers lace their next cocktail with a little Chantix. It would definitely pour on more polar to the bipolar.

Like how bad do you want to stop smoking when you weigh the possible side effects of this drug. Like suicide. Now there's the ultimate cure for smoking.

Then there's the Viagra commercials. Come on people, aren't you sick and tired of seeing some old fart in those commercials with a shit ass eating grin on his face leading his lady to some South Sea Island bungalow to do lord knows what with his new found artificial stimulation? Barf.

I don't need to see that! Know that! Definitely don't want to fantasize that. I don't even want to buy that! Do you?

Maybe that's the problem with TV today. Too much information. More than we really need to know. I'd hate to have small kids at home. I can hear the questions being fired at Bob now.

"Dad, what's an erection lasting 7 hours? They say on TV that if you have one that you need to see a doctor."

Explain that one away.

When it comes to too much information how much is really enough? How much do we want our children exposed to. How much can we, as adults, stand watching?

Thank God for the remote control. Channel surfing is saving my sanity.

I am so with you there Bob! I find it amazing that the pharmaceuticals put commercials out there so that we can suggest medications to our doctors...

Shouldn't that be the other way around? Aren't they they experts?
