they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

it better be good

Last night, I was watching TV and one of those commercials for a CD compilation came on PBS or something. It was for a classical CD. The tagline was:

The best classical cd in the world…..ever.

The announcer kept saying it over and over and over. “You can purchase the best classical cd in the world – ever.”
And then he'd say things similar to:
"Be soothed with the sounds of the best classical cd in the world - ever."
"Enjoy hightened self-awareness with the best classical cd in the world - ever."

It's quite possibly the worst tagline I've heard - ever. It was like a Saturday Night Live skit, only it wasn’t a joke. But that doesn't mean I wasn't laughing.

    There is another one, they show it after Jeopardy:

    A woman in front of a green backdrop is applying a roll on stick to her forehead. A voiceover comes in:

    "Head On. Apply DIrectly To The Forehead. Head On. Apply Directly To The Forehead. Head On. Apply Directly To The Forehead. Head On. Available at Walgreens."

    That isn't a typo. She really repeats herself 3 times, like a car alarm. I immediately thought of SNL. Hilarious.
