|Commercials alarming and amusing
||[Apr. 2nd, 2011|09:44 am]
We don't watch broadcast TV here very much, just the occasional baseball or hockey. As a result, commercials startle me more than I think they otherwise would have, and we get a certain...skew to them. (This is less true with baseball commercials, I think--hockey fans are suspected of being a rather specific demographic.)
The alarming one is from Denny's. Denny's is having an event called Baconalia. Yes: Denny's. Is making a Bacchanalia pun. It will be an orgy of bacon. Seriously. An actual orgy. With bacon. At Denny's. Um.
The amusing one has been a source of mirth for timprov and me for most of the hockey season: there is a website that advertises itself as Go Fish In Ontario Dot Com. It pleads with Minnesota fishers to sample the wonders of Canadian fishing, but: Go Fish. In Ontario. So we call out to each other, "Euchre in British Columbia Dot Com!" "Crazy Eights in Manitoba Dot Com!" And so on.
I don't know, I just thought I should tell you. A lot of what's on my mind lately is worrying and not mine to tell, but there's always Egyptian Rat Screw in Prince Edward Island Dot Com to perk a person right up.
