By my calculations it’s been four years since I last heard a television commercial. I see the people and their lips are moving, but no words come out.
You-know-who has gotten, shall we say, a little aggressive with the remote control. A little aggressive nothing — he is two shakes shy of maniacal.
Particular commercials tend to annoy him. Or at least they used to; they can’t annoy him much anymore, now that we rarely hear them. Sometimes it is annoying background music or a classic rock tune being twisted for commercialization that sends him diving for the remote. Other times it is an annoying voice.
