I am thoroughly convinced that if you watch three full episodes of The Bachelor, that you can be certified, brain dead. My wife not only watches this, but she watches the commercials too. Sitting there in my chair, with that deer in the headlight stare, my mind keeps playing over and over, shoot me, shoot me, please, take me outside and shoot me!
Being as I am a man, I want to see something imploded or wrecked, salvaged or sunk. Pretty basic masculine wish list if you ask me.
Another thing I am really getting tired of is “Rob Lowe” the new, the old, the dirty, whatever. I mean … Who cares? Commercials much like America are now evolving into something, I don’t know what, but they are changing.
Noticing a lot of Asians, Mexicans and other ethnic races in the commercials now. Big hoopla not long ago about a “mixed family” and Cheerios.
KInd of cracks me up. The garbage they try to spoon feed us each night. You ever notice that when people are eating Chinese Food, they are most always using Chopsticks? Over and over, this ethnic stereotype is portrayed in advertising and film.
On average, I eat Chinese Food about three times per month, and without hesitation, I can assure you, it is seldom I see anyone using Chopsticks. Myself I am “fair with them” but still prefer a fork or a spoon.
Now and then, my wife (who is Asian) meets with her girlfriends and they all go out for Chinese. I have accompanied them on several occasions and they all eat with chopsticks. I of course, will use them too, but I am not all that comfortable with them. The girls however get a kick out of it, and will lean over and in Chinese they will say to her … “Your husband is a good sport.”
Did you know that the Japanese and the Chinese are now being told to use regular eating utensils instead of the sticks?
Throw-away chopsticks that are commonly used in most Asian countries … About 24 billion pairs of disposable chopsticks are used in Japan each year. The impact of so many discarded chopsticks on nature is of course unsustainable. China is now saying that this practice is destroying their forests and if something is not done, and soon, there won’t be much left for future generations.
This also leads to a disposal problem, what to do with all of them.
Here is an idea, send me a container ship load, I will pile them under Rob Lowe and we could get some lighter fluid … Nah, wait a minute. I believe that is still not legal in civilized countries, what was I thinkin?
