Let's hear 'em! I'll save MY personal 'favorites' for later...

'The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.'

'When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.'

'And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.'

'An elective despotism was not the government we fought for.' - Thomas Jefferson

ALL commericals dealing with drugs/medicines.

Direct TV....the dead-pan, bugeyed brunette that says she wants us to know the truth about cable TV.

Also one of the car title places that has the girl saying "they got my title back from those other folks" in a very irritating chipmunk voice.

and sometimes it isn't the commercial itself that's irritating, but the frequency it's shown.
KS - you should check out the Slate article I mentioned above, I think the first link. They talk about the McDonald's Fillet-O-Fish ads! They say the opposite though, that the sandwiches look nasty and greasy and not yummy at all!

Talking about all this food makes me wish I hadn't skipped lunch!!!
The Pepto Bismol spot where the people are singing their symptoms. Heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea. Nothing worse than seeing people grab their butts and say "diarrhea"

The spots where the woman looks at the camera and says "I've got genital herpes, but I'm controlling my out breaks with ...." Not something I want to hear about while I'm trying to eat supper.

I hate those Sonic commercials,too,but I would have used the word -geeks- instead.And then there is the one about the A1 sauce drop on the grill,that one reminds me of my middle son.He has plenty of book sense,just not one drop of common sense.
only1me...I was absolutely going to say those "Call Goldberg" commercials where I have the freaking number memorized...I'll about break a bone running to the remote/TV whatever I can get to first to turn the danged channel.

I also hate the "Sticks & Stuff" with the Gordon girl and I can't stand, I think it's Hardees, where you can hear the guys crunching and smacking their food.

A funny comment about "Enzyte Bob", my father is hard of hearing and until he recently out the closed-captioning on his TV, he thought that was a denture commercial.

The pits has to be the woman smiling as she says, "I have genital herpes..."



Or the one where the guy says, "I have genital herpes" and Miss Perky says, "And I DON'T"! (I always want her to add, "I have GONORRHEA!!!)

Or the road ho looking woman on that weight loss ad with the painfully engorged fake boobies who talks about how "hot" her husband thinks she is. Billy Bob thinks Wanda is a hottie. Whatever.

Personally, I find the phrase/title 'trophy wife' demeaning. To me it says "See what I have? I may not appreciate her, but I have her....and you don't." I dunno... My wife can explain it better. She says her EX often used that phrase to describe her.
You know, in this case "trophy wife" is demeaning. But in my way of thinking, "trophy wife" is a good compliment when it is given to a wife who handles everything that comes her way with eloquence and patience. A woman that helps her children and husband. A woman that knows how to tend to herself and her family. and a woman (most of all) that loves openly and freely and says it every day to those that she cares about. THAT is a trophy wife!
the "trophy wife" commercial gets on my last nerve too. To me she is really saying - my husband (2 faced jerk who was cheating on me to start with) was about to divorce my fat lazy tail, so I lost weight & he loves me now. But hey, that is just my opinion. I would also like to stick Goldbergs 800 number up his nose! my kids go around singing that all the time.

Yeah, but the men ALWAYS mean the 24 year old plastic blonde he traded the above wife in on when he felt old.
