    Default Poxy TV adverts

    I hate TV adverts, particularly when they keep repeating the same ones over and over.

    However to keep the brain active I look for inconsistencies or stupidity to give amusement.
    Take the Right Move advert with the sad 'Graham...' being summoned by his missus up and down the stairs.

    Cut to the shot where they have moved out ...they have taken everything including the stair carpet .... and moved to a bungalow?

    Sad I know that I noticed, Shirley thinks so anyway.

    Graham will need something to wrap his wife's body in when he finally snaps!

    I think what's happened there is that they don't like the people who are buying the house off of them because they were messed about by them for ages over the sale. They're the vindictive sort so they've ripped up the stair carpet and burnt it in the back yard. But they've left a bit unburnt just so it's obvious to the buyers what they have done. Of course there's not enough time to show all that in the advert.

    The other half still subscribes to Sky .. She is astute enough to record the progs with ads inbetween so when she does actually watch them she can fast forward the shyte out !!!

    Ads that really bug me are the ones that are obviously foreign with the english just dubbed on, like those bad kung fu films. Oh & that arsehole with the parsnips & his funeral plans.

    I'm just up - well rather Del's asked me to get up and make her a cup of tea and stuff, before going to work, as she likes that and it saves her time in the morning. I've to have another one ready for her, with some toast, when she comes out the shower! Some service, eh?

    Lol... I really don't mind, in fact I enjoy it, although she knows she won't get any sense out of me until at least 8am, and coffee o'clock. Indeed, she'd probably say that she doesn't get much sense out of me, no matter what time it is!

    Anyway, looks like a nice sunny day outside....

    But she does manage to get some sense out of you sometimes - we need to know what's her secret Think I may have a "posh coffee" too before I leave the house, I'm working for myself today, so I'm working at my own pace (slow). Honestly this being "my own boss" is tough going, I'm such a lazy shite I'm in danger of sacking myself.
