Funny Scare Mongering

Remember the old duck-and-cover cartoons? (‘Crawl under your school desk in case of nuclear explosion. Because your half inch plywood desk is radiation-proof.’) Well, now you can enjoy laughing at some of today’s illustrative equivalents.

Foreign Adverts

It’s amazing the amusement I can derive from listening to foreign radio. I’m currently listening to Ireland’s 2FM and even the advertisements amuse me. Living with Sky TV for two years convinced me that commercials can be entertaining and not annoying. They don’t have to be one exceedingly nervous used cars salesman followed by a craptastic have-you-ever-been-hurt-by-anything-call-us-and-let-us-get-you-money shyster lawyer and then a pharm commercial. (I don’t want to type the full word, probably for fear of having my inbox flooded with spam containing that most hated of words.) I’ve actually been tempted to dig up some of the videos I taped off of SkyOne to show my suitemates. We could fast forward through the shows and just watch the commercials.

Because adverts don’t have to suck. They can be funny! Except in the U.S. We apparently have laws against that.

Epiphany! In The Clinic!

For all of my House-inclined friends, there’s now a new way to entertain yourself and friends while watching the show: House bingo! (Much thanks to Lisa for sharing the link.)

What are you still doing here? Go forth! Laugh!
