I love all of you Jen and Jenn's out there. There are so many of you and you all rule. But right now, I'm going to tell you why I love this Jenn. And I just realized it.
I didn't just realize I love her, but I just realized another reason. I think we are somehow related in some cosmic way. It's not that we both got pregnant on Cycle 20. Nor that we both are married to guys named Tom. Nor that we both are into roller derby (me a derby girl and her an official derby girl supporter). It's because we both share a hatred of the same commercials. (oh yes, the glue which holds us together. heh.)
I bitched about the whopper vs big mac commercial the other day. The reason I talked about that particular commercial was because it was on at the time and tom and I had discussed it. But if you asked me what commercials piss me off the most? My answer would be exactly that of the commercials Jenn mentioned in her comment to me.
First off - The Snuggie. Are you fucking kidding me? They are actually hawking a ROBE. Or you can call it a blanket with arms. Regardless of how you look at it - it's stupid. At the beginning of the commercial, they show this woman who just is having SO MUCH trouble with a blanket. Like she's a moron who can't keep it on. And then the phone rings and she just can't seem to get her hands out from underneath it. Okay, if this woman doesn't know how to manuver around a blanket, well, she's got bigger problems than needing to order a snuggie.
Next is the ShamWow guy. And this time I'm not talking about the product, but the guy. Doesn't he actually look like a shark? And I don't mean the second definition of the word shark: "a person who preys greedily on others", but an actual shark. Like he's straight out of a cartoon. And something is up with his face. The way he talks out of one side or maybe he's squinting. I can't remember which and I really don't want to google the guy, but he's annoying. And really. A headset? It's a fucking tv commercial for goodness sake - use a microphone dude. I'm not going to buy it anymore if I'm pretending I'm watching you peddle your towel at the county fair. Oh, have you noticed he's selling another product? One of those pampered chef chopper knockoffs. Wearing the same awesome blue shirt and khakis. And of course, the headset. Mmmmm. The headset. That sexy, sexy, headset.
Leaving you with how ridiculously large I am right now. My favorite long sleeve t-shirts aren't even covering my girth anymore.
