The line 'the most sophisticated piece of technology you'll ever pee on' had me literally rolling out of my chair.

Mark me down as another person who is not amused by smiling bob and his male enhancement campaign, who is bugged by the pepto bismol dancers, and horrified at 'Viva Viagra'.

Where did Douglas Adams put advertising copywriters in the pantheon of those who will be put up against the wall when the revolution comes?

Remember this oldie?

Doxidan, Doxidan
When nature needs a helping hand
Doxidan, Doxidan,
As sure as the sun rises.

My cow-orkers watch a soap during lunch. Why is it that they run all the ads for herpes, yeast infections, stomach ailments, & constipation DURING THE LUNCH HOUR??? Iíve practically given up bringing chili for lunch.
