Topic: "Purple Pill Please" (2)
Frodo has publicly announced his intention to separate the head from the torso of the individual who first decided to broadcast television commercials for pharmaceuticals during the dinner hour. In the true spirit of capitalism, Frodo has also promised never to purchase the product "Nexium" (i.e., the "purple pill") even if bile discharge should appear in his own gullet. True revolutionaries have to be prepared for personal sacrifice.
Feminine hygiene products, cat litter, erectile dysfunction assistance, and foot odor eaters are other popular subjects for broadcast at 6:30 EST (4:30 in the Mountain Time Zone). No network, cable affiliate, or independent station has operated free of the gross and disgusting advertising presentations during either the Evening News or the re-broadcast of a re-broadcast of a syndicated comedy re-run (Is that really John Travolta?). Frodo truly thought that things could not get even more tasteless.
Remember, dear reader, the little old lady used in the political commercials, Clara somebody-or-other, who screamed "Where's the Beef?' Now that was funny, regardless of whether or not the advertisement was for or against anyone in particular, it was funny, and it got a point across. Try, dear reader, to match the creative application of humor to today's political landscape, and the truly concerned adult looks directly into the face of political bathroom humor. It will not surprise Frodo at all to soon see a commercial taking note of a political opponent subtly attempting to pass gas. It will be "aired" during Frodo's dinner.
The Republican National Committee, and the sly jokester Ken Mehlman, today pulled the advertisement used to attack Democratic Senatorial Candidate Harold Ford. The suggestive comments of a "white" woman regarding a "black" man got extensive media play for three or four days in a "southern border state." The assumption being that those potential voters who would be offended by this violation of the literally-interpreted prohibitions in the Book of Leviticus had been titillated by this presentation from the "low ground." This may prove to be the most widely-referenced political ad in the future histories of these mid-term elections. Its' one redeeming virtue is noted by the fact that it will not ever again appear on Frodo's TV during the dinner hour. If only the 15,394 equally offensively-repeated presentations could go with it, and never again attempt to anger, titillate, amuse, or (Heaven Forbid) inform anyone ever again. And may their Creators form a single line from the platform of Frodo's personal guillotine, so that Frodo never again will wish that he could suffer another "Nexium" commercial in lieu of one more look at the pudgy countenance of Sonny, the "TooDoo."
For you non-Georgians, don't ask!
