Has the peacock grown a conscience?
Conscience? Naaah. Bidness decisions, all.
(Can I say "peacock"?)
A serendipitous outcome is that Obama's reformation of how politics are being done and communicated begins to look more than just change to competency and skill - it starts to take on an increasingly moral quality when compared to last eight years.
Obama plans to speak to the Muslim world from a Muslim capital? "America is not your enemy!" God, how easy to do and how strategic it is in taking the lure out of extremism.
Why couldn't we have done this six years ago? Because "the burdens of the office are overrated."
The adds banned aren't really up to snuff anyway.
WTH? They were risque, at most! Bordering on tasteless, one of 'em. But the beaver thing was just cute, IMHO.
Pure History of Sandoz: Old Jules.
I may have to look at "CRazy Horse" again. I recall it being creatively straightforward, but not fictionalized. ... But then I read, like, 50 books of Custerania in the sdpace of about six months; I might be confusing it with Ambrose's "Crazy Horse & Custer."
Oh, and drlobojo, there's nothing wrong with fourth grade humor. Inside every grown man is a little boy who still enjoys a good fart joke.
I would have to contend that the degree of "not yet" grown up would be directly proportional to the glee expressed at a fart joke. I would also contend that a "good fart joke" is oxymoronic unless you are a forth grader or drunk.
As for the PETA beaver commercial I think they are guilty of giving away the underlying psychological meaning of the beaver in the Rozerem ad thus probably getting the beaver, diver, and Abe banned.
Gotta wonder if PETA was trying to get banned, or at least didn't care either way-- win,win-- and free pub on the cheap. If so, it's smart.
Network Standards? An oxymoron, to be sure.
I just wish I could remember the product.
But for my money the "Herding Cats" ad is the best ever.
