And Then I Stepped in Gum . . .

Wednesday, June 08, 2005


OK, I'm insulated from most commercials these days by my TiVo (I heart my TiVo more than I can say), but I just saw the worst, grossest, aimed-at-kids commercial ever. At first I didn't even know what it was advertising. It just showed two kids with gigantic fruit heads (watermelon and blue grapes, I think) -- think Fruit-of-the-Loom guys but with faces poking out of the fruit. And then the blue grape one SNEEZED BLUE ECTOPLASM ALL OVER THE ROOM.

I cannot begin to tell you how disgusting it was. GROSS, GROSS, GROSS!!! Am I the only one?

(It was for Fruit Gushers, by the way -- candy that even my children won't eat.)
