A Tale of Two Ads

In the world of advertising, there are two popular ways to promote and/or sell one’s product.  One way, which isn’t recommended, is to be a real dick about it.  Ya know, start off by saying your opposition (or whoever really, doesn’t matter) is the worst… ever…. in history.  Then make some funny faces into the camera to make us forget that you’re the son of one of earth’s dumbest human beings.  Then, threaten violence.

Sorta like this:

Kinda lame, yeah? 

That’s because the product itself is lame (sorry, Arizona, but y’all are really failing me on your decisions of late).  Bottom advertising line: avoid lame products.

Q:  What’s Red State Blue State?

A:  It’s a podcast.  About baseball.  And other things.

Q:  What’s baseball!?!

A:  America’s pastime.

Q:  What’s America!?!?!

Ask yourself that question again, dear readers, and ask it often: What is America?

And how disturbed are you that part of it is going to be run by another Quayle?

Happy Friday!

Oh jeez….I don’t know if I should comment on this or not. I kind of like Quayle…and kind of don’t like Obama…I’m not trying to sound wishy-washy, just don’t want you guys to kill me for spewing right wing stuff on your blog
Although, this is America…I could say whatever I want. But naaah. I don’t want to start something. You know what I’m thinkin :)

Wow…”Knock the hell out of the place.” Really? I still cannot believe he said that. Is this dude related to the potato guy? That might explain it.

This proves scientists have it all wrong when they think they hear the backround noise of the universe left over by the Big Bang. What they’re picking up with their giant ears is the global vibrato of the world laughing at us! Good grief!
I think they all suck! Power to the people.

the temptation to click submit when stuck was too much for me to overcome this time. I’m so ashamed! (going away with my head held down)
