This is my second year participating in GISHWHES. I agree that the scavenger lists are very badly un-thought-through -- both years, items have been included that have had to be withdrawn or amended...
Here's me... a fairly close lookalike to what I *wish* I looked like!
So... buy our phones and you can watch Keyboard Cat, porn, and Keyboard Cat again? Yep, that's me sold.
Tropicana's been showing "breakfast in New York" commercials for a few years now in the UK. This makes a nice change of pace (with a seasonal summery feel) while still sticking closely to the...
Yeesh. It's interesting to compare this with the UK version:http://www.tellyads.com/show_movie.php?filename=TA10572

I can't remember which stand-up comedian said this...
"Guns don't kill people. Bullets kill people. The guns just help the bullets go fast. Imagine a bank robber coming in with a handful of bullets...
"Inuit" isn't a PC term in itself -- it's the name of a people -- but the indiscriminate use of it to mean "any Arctic native" is PC.
"Inuit" covers several peoples: the Inuit and Inuvialut (Canada...
Hey, I resemble that remark.
(My glasses are also still broken, so I can't see the details of the material. I do agree the woman's cleavage looks like a builder's backside.)
I think they're hilarious. Would probably go over well here in the UK. They're certainly a heck of a lot better than the current boring "true-life interview" ads Sensodyne are running on TV now. ("I...
