More Important Lessons from the Tube

Bird of Happiness, redux
Stuffed Owl of Happiness
  • The New Hoover has Cyclonic Suction and awaits you. ( Was that and ad, or a threat?)
  • Regarding another ad: I have noticed if you turn off the sound and just look at the visuals, it is hard to tell whether a particular ad I have seen is hyping Viagra or a trip to Bermuda.  Also, I wonder what the Viagra ‘conversation’ is about and does it ever turn into an argument?
  • “Approximately 2 out of 3 people being treated for depression still have symptoms of depression.”  (This must be an ad from one drug company trying to get a depressed person to switch to their drug.  It depresses me.)
  • “A tyrant will always find a pretext for his tyranny.”  (Law & Order, SVU)
  • “If you sit by the river long enough, you will see the bodies of your enemies float by.”  (Attributed to Confucius by ‘The Mentalist’.  Don’t our rivers have enough troubles without our throwing our enemies into them?  What will we do next?)
  • I am going out on a limb here, but I think old people should not get back on stage on national networks and either try or pretend to sing their hits of thirty or more years ago.  Even more, when I am in charge of things – I will prohibit it.  Granted, I’ve never had a hit, nor could I sing, but I do have my couch potato rights.
