Those effing commercials

You know what's getting old (besides the 25 things epidemic on Facebook)? Getting blind-sided by the polar bear commercials with Noah Wyle, the starving children commercials with Laurie Metcalf, and for God’s sake, the animal cruelty spots with Sarah McLachlan. Make it stop, please, make it stop, or I’m going to have to punch global warming, famine, and animal abusers in their collective faces.

Ohhhhhh my gosh. I was JUST bitching about that commercial. Like JUST. Sometimes we're go in synch, J Wo.

You're a hoot! Love it. How many of these commercials did we see Sunday afternoon?

Save the abused, blind polar bears in Africa!

Seriously, after a weekend of doing not much besides watching tv and playing bejeweled on my crackberry, I was ready to shoot myself everytime that gd sarah mc. commercial came on. Well, I vacillated between committing hari kari and running into the bedroom to hug my dog (who was hanging out under the bed per usual).

I dive for the remote at the opening notes of any of those commercials. That shit *haunts* me, and I'd swear they shouldn't be able to put that on TV, except then I'd feel like I was denying a dog or a polar bear or a child a home and a good meal.

I still prefer bears to starving children with flies swarming around them.

TiVO people, TiVO!
I haven't watched a commercial in years, years, I tell ya!
(You cannot tell me that a polar bear wouldn't enjoy warmer water. Anyone remember waiting for the swimming pool to open in summer? Helloooooo!)
