    I don't mind the Arby's oven mitt so much.

    But I do HATE all the ads for Viagra and it's cousins. I hate that someone in Queen let their music be used for it. I hate the one for Cialis with the woman, who looks 25 years younger than her "husband" uses every euphemism for sex she (or the ad writers) can think of. And why does the wife always look so young? If you use Viagra, you can get a woman younger than your daughter, too? Urg.

    Totally agree on the SUV and large truck ads.

    There was some twit running for Congress in Nebraska a couple years ago, and his ad led off with, "Jim Smith has been married to the same woman for 27 years." Do I give a sh*t? No, I do not. I always mentally added, " and has had the same mistress for 10 years." Bleah.

    Princess Leppard....I hate all of the viagra and male performance "enhancement" commercials. I know they can't come right out and say it, but all of the tricky wording and veiled phrases are hilarious....and after 50 viewings they are just plain maddening. I hate them! I at first thought the one about the guy at the cookout who was "enhanced" was sort of funny and different, but now I only want to hurt the people that choose to run this commercial endlessly.

    There is also this local commercial in SE TN that is horrible. It is for one of those cheap car lots and it features this man dressed like a giant yellow chicken...all the while he runs around and yells in the most grating and jarring voice, "I got it! I got it!".

    I think someone mentioned this one on another thread some time ago but it is right up there with the most annoying....the antidiarrhea medication where the girl and guy are listening to music and dancing around in the music store. Add to that the one with the guy in the hot tub..yukl! Also the identity theft commercials especially the Asian lady speaking as I believe it's "Larry" who had to have the "old chassis waxed" and the guy speaking as the girl who "wants to be the prettiest girl in the entire DEE-velopment with the press on nails with the little diamonds already on them....I know it's wrong but I do not care." : .....triple yuk!!!

    I despise any of the medicinal product commercials that mention side effects which are worse than the symptoms the person would want to relieve, LOL. Who wants to take an anti-depressant which has side effects that could dangerously lower your heart rate, put one at the risk of heart attack or exacerbate some already existing medical problem? I realize that the drug companies putting out these products are just trying to protect themselves from liabilities, but they carry these "don't-take-our-product-if-you've-got-this-condition" exceptions to the point where they are ridiculous, LOL. If the product is so dangerous under certain situations, why advertise it at all? I wish the drug companies would just give the product information only to the physicians and let them advise their patients about what is available and the risks of taking the product.

    Other ones which just drive me nuts are the "male enhancement" ads with the warnings that if the desired sensation lasts longer than four hours the person should seek emergency treatment. A guy would need to be truely desperate to risk pain and the resulting anxiety to "please" his girl friend/wife!

    Thumbs down

    There's this new "Got Milk" commercial that is totally revolting. A woman is looking for milk, and her skeleton leaves her body melted on the floor while it goes to the refrigerator to get some milk. We saw it last night, and RG Jr. was TOTALLY grossed out -- and I was upset that such a disgusting commercial made it to TV--it was as awful as the kind of horror movie I would not allow her to see. I couldn't even look at my milk carton today.

    Oh my gosh, FINALLY a place where I can vent about my annoyance with this one commercial that I somehow end up seeing every night like six times (and I am not even watching that much TV this summer!). Its the one from the Aluminum Foundation or something that has the annoying song...."Don't shake the can...don't shake it, please don't shake it....don't shake the can now, oh no" (and yes its really sad that I know that much of that song, LOL) and it has all these weird random people dancing around with cans of pop and juice. I watch this commercial and am like, what the heck is this?!?! And I STILL don't have a CLUE what in the world this commercial is for!! Why is this on TV?! If anyone can enlighten me on the purpose of this commercial, I would LOVE to know why this annoying commercial is allowed to be on TV and especially, how we can make it go away, LOL :sheesh:

    Ditto to the annoyances with the Viagra type commercials and the feminine product commercials but hey, at least we know what those are for, LOL

    There's a commercial for a drug advertised to treat rheumatoid arthritis where the list of side effects is horrifying (TB, lymphoma, death). Then I saw a commercial for the same drug being used for psoriasis. Now, I could understand that a person suffering with intolerable pain and crippling from arthritis might want to try that drug and risk lethal side effects. But PSORIASIS?

    I think the government has enforced the drug companies to list the side effects and thank goodness they have. Would you like it if you didn't know the side effects? Otherwise, more people would be trying to get their Dr's to give them prescriptions for medications that may even kill them. I had to laugh when I started hearing all the side effects. Kind of like one over on the drug companies. Are any of you familiar with the author Arthur Hailey? He fictionalizes stories about different types of companies and lives the part before he writes. He wrote one about the drug companies and his books are really enlightening. I will have to look up the name of that book. Most of them are really a little too immoral for me but I read them anyway for the enlightenment.

    I would like to know how a drug for arthritis could also be used for psoriasis. I have it inside my ears (plus psoriatic arthritis) and it can be downright miserable. Not that I would take it, just interesting. Of course, when I'm really achy and someone says it's better than the alternative, I tell them, there are days you disagree with that. So, even though you don't want to hear about those side effects, be glad they're telling them.

    Donna, last night was the first time I saw this commercial and was in utter disgust. The place where I work deals with people with disabilities and some of our people talk the way the guy does---------NOT FUNNY!!!!

    Where do these businesses get off showing a commercial like that?

    Okay, the egg beater one is pretty bad....

    But the WORST, and I can't believe I forgot this one because it's totally disgustinng, but perhaps I just blocked it out of my mind, is the one for a toenail fungus cream, and it shows the horrible little creatures jumping under a diseased toenail. I can't even WATCH this anymore, I have to avert my eyes, and it always on during the evening news. Bleah!

    PS My final for my 9th graders last year was for them to create either a commercial or an informercial. One group parodied the drug ads...the list of side effects went on for three minutes. It was hilarious!

    Both psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis are autoimmune diseases, so a drug that treats one may also have an effect on some symptoms of the other.

    The title of the book is Strong Medicine. Did you know that once you choose what book you want you can go to www.anybookstore.com and they will give you a list of the prices, etc. of the book you want. Just tried it and it went to AllBookstore. That way you can get the best price and they tell you the tax and the shipping cost.

    Thanks Bronxgirl. I know about the autoimmune thing. Lots of others too. I have the majority of them but thank goodness not Lupus!

    I usually hate the FHP commercials but I do smile when the cranky teacher says "I hope you brought enough for the entire class" and the girl replies "Enough for the girls".
