I'm a straight, gay dog who has spent nearly ten years as an advertising copywriter for radio and television. This has left me with a debilitating work-related disability. I had always planned to try my hand at writing the Great Canadian Novel and several years ago decided to begin during a two-week vacation. Day one I spent with my feet up searching for an idea. On day two I kept myself busy sitting beneath a tree, nibbling potato chips and scribbling plot points and back story onto a pad of yellow paper. Early on day three’s morning, I sat down at my word processor and began to write. When I finished, I went back over my work cleaning up spelling and typos occasionally changing a word or phrase to something more elegant. Finally, I read my story to Fizzgig, the grey Persian/Maine Coon mix who allows me to sublet part of the rooms I rent. It took exactly sixty seconds to read.Premature exposition! I know, but I’m working on it.

This is hilarious. But did they honestly think this would make the Super Bowl? I have concluded that several of the edgier advertising agencies are creating on-line ads, purporting to be television commercials, which they know are beyond the pale for broadcast TV. These generate notoriety, so people purposefully search out the ads on YouTube, etc. and expose themselves to the sponsor's message. The sponsor pays only for the agency's efforts producing the ads, not the bigger expense of buying blocks of television time in which to air the commercials. Everybody wins except the broadcasting companies.

Roses are red.Violets are blue.If you won't take my flowers,I'll just chew on my bone.
"Me, fa, so," sing I.
...HOISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF.. Perhaps the reason why "hoistery" keeps repeating itself is because every time someone makes an intelligent attempt at correcting the problem, fellows like you go off like a bunch of "petards."
Roses are red.Violets are blue.If you're buying drinksI'm a Lush for you.
Somewhere the shade of Rube Goldberg is smiling.
A trifle harsh, perhaps, but I've had days like that.
