When the hubs and I are watching TV and a commercial comes on, often, the commercials are so god damned ridiculous, that he often has a retort, and it usually starts with “If I were the director…” At which point, I roll my eyes and brace myself for the lameness that usually comes out of his mouth. Because it usually has a porn spin on it, and really? Porn? It gets old, I’m telling you.
And as an aside, seriously? Is it just me, or is marketing these days just total shit. I’ve convinced myself, that if I were ever to return to college, I’d pick marketing, because I’m guessing it’s an easy A with all of the bad commercials that are out there. It would be a toss up between that and meteorologist, because that’s a profession where you can be wrong, and still keep your job. I’m not saying that because they totally incorrectly forecasted the “mostly rain” that’s now gracing the area in the form of a foot of snow. I’m not even the slightest bit pissed off about it.
So the other night, we were sitting in bed, watching whatever, and this Manwich commercial comes on:
The hubs looks at me, just after the corn said “Hey, you’re supposed to be a vegetable!” and says, “If I were the director, she would have said, “Yeah, but I haven’t fallen down the stairs yet.” And I have to admit, I lost it, because politically correct or no, it was a pretty funny quip. I couldn’t even roll my eyes at that one.
