       I just get so sick of commercials that tell us how inadequate we are. I just don't think that the latest breath mint is really going to make me young and beautiful again. We are so brainwashed.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    My floor has waxy buildup.
    My body odor offends.
    My car is just not stylish,
    And my clothes come from trash bins.

    I don't go to the right spots
    To overpay for food.
    I can't be really happy
    For I don't enhance my mood.

    My hair is the wrong color,
    And my abs need to be toned.
    My dog is just a yellow mutt,
    And I don't drink or get stoned.

    When I watch the TV,
    I know that i'm just screwed.
    But if I buy their products
    My life will be renewed.

      Like those products they advertise is really gonna do all they say it will. I have bought cleaners that are supposed to do wonders and shoot thunders (as my grandmother used to say) and they end up not doing much more than plain old soap and water!
    BASH the advertisers! I say do it...you go girl!

      You said a mouthfull with this one and I couldn't agree more! I hate commercials, in fact I can't watch Tv without the remote in my hand so that when a commercial comes on I can hit the mute button. I've pushed the mute button so often it just kinda flops around in there now! It was a happy day for me when they stopped ply'n those Greg Cinamone commercials. hell I don't need him to tell me I'm fat, all I gotta do is look in the mirror! Liked this one a lot.
    Take care,

      Yes, it's true, inadequacy is great for business. It breeds insecurity which also makes psychiatrists a living. It's funny I took a course in advertising before I started on my degree in psychology, it was the perfect send off into the world of mind manipulation we get from advertising. Let's get real here.. hey Lynn, I liked this write, lots of good ideas and just plain fun.
    peace and love,

      Dont you just love when you buy something and then 2 weeks later, they come out with the "new and improved" product. So what was wrong with it in the first place? This brought a smile to my face and I'm sure everyone can relate to it.

      Yeah I agree with this alot. Its hard to keep up. I agree you buy one product.. Like say some cleaning stuff. That about a month later... That stuff isnt as good as this stuff now on tv. Its kind of dumb too. It applys to everything.. It is like on the HAvE TO GET LIST. than you are like broke.. Than they have video game systems.. Than a yr later its not in.. Its kinda stupid to keep up with the advertisments.. Why can't they just stick with one thing.. All they are thinking about is getting money... So its just stupid..
    Well loved the little poem.. Shows a great message. Why should we buy hipper, expensive stuff, when you can go somewhere else, and get just as much out of something, and its all cheaper. To me makes no sense..
    Sometimes I like the fashionable stores.. But sometimes it does get to me..

    well good write

      Seems like we all agree that we pad out our short lives with even shorter lifed things. I guess we are creatures of faith and cannot help but invest it somewhere, even if it is in scientificly designed toothbrushes or whatever.

      Take it from the "Info-mercial-watching-queen"
    I know too well how silly these ads are, rather than watch prime time comedy or the silly home videos, I stay up late to watch the info-mercials on tv. I crack myself up making fun of the gemmick natzi's and those who follow them, especailly when it is a celebrity...Sometimes I find myself getting near hysterics, and other times I findmyself wanting what they are offering (Usually for the kids ie hooked on phonics) then I go to the internet and get on the Epinions Website to view the reviews from the gullible ones who faltered, and I regain my thinking pattern and save that extra $$ for something real...like chocolates.
    This is a great poem, I am going to save it to read to my mom...she will appreciate it as much as I do.
