Gatorsweat

While we are on the topic of commercials that infuriate me for no good reason, we should mention the horrible Gatorade commercials where people sweat out brightly colored Gatorade sweat. Ew. Josh can verify that these commercials make me cringe, almost cry, and have to shut my eyes or leave the room. They really go beyond irritating me and enter the realm of making me physically sick. Why have they been playing these forever? Do people like the idea that they are drinking so much Gatorade that their sweat is no longer water-colored but Gatorade-colored instead? I certainly don't like that idea. I also don't like Gatorade, and thanks to these commercials, I like it even less. Yuck.

In fact, now that I think of it, I probably shouldn't have put one of the offensive sweat-pics up here as I will now no longer be able to look at Spacebeer until the picture has moved off the page (even that picture of the toilet paper from yesterday puts that irritating bear-butt-wipe jingle in my head instantly). I'll have to be tough. I hope you all appreciate the sacrifice.

What a cross I bear living with my irrationally offended cuckoo bananas wife. I am like Jesus multiplied by a thousand.

I know what you mean about getting physically ILL. I absolutely HATED the first BK Chicken Fries commercial. I don't know if it was the scrungy garage band screaming "CHICKEN FRIES" or if I just am not into misshapen foods .. but those damn fries offend my sense.
