    I think the subaru dog commercials are hysterical. Especially this one !: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWqdRYUH9QQ

    That commercial reminds me of this blog post from the rebel heart blog. They force their kids to be on a boat 24/7 with not much to do, then bake a yummy cake at night, then when the 3 yo asks for some they lie and say it's all gone and give her 5 gumdrops instead. What the heck. How much cake could a 3 yo possibly eat and why not just give a sliver? It's not as if she had much else to look forward to.

    They are no longer at sea (the younger child who was sick just before they left got sick again and they had to be rescued by the national guard and the navy). But I'm sure they'll go right back once they get the funds for a new boat.

    I'll tell you a couple I think are cute. The puppy at camp singing to the old Alan Sherman song. And then there is the one with the young Canadian singing group "dressed up as a pirate in this restaurant". Those are some that I actually like.

    I hated MUTING commercials. My Husband does it and so do his parents when they are around. If you mute a commercial you need to watch it so you don't miss the actual program. If I can hear it I can tune it out enough so that I can hear when the program comes back on . I read or sew and watch TV at the same time. I always know when to go back to check the screen when the noise changes.

    One radio ad that drives both my DH and I absolutely crazy is "1-800-Kars-4-Kids". Their jingle is like nails on a blackboard.

    Add me to the list of haters of Flo and the Progressive ads. Ugh!

    I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I like the Mucinex ads with those green mucus monsters setting up home and having parties in people's lungs.
