Honk If You Love...2.0

This has just got to be my favourite TV commercial these days.

If only life came with warnings, eh?

Hey Dufus! Ha! I saw this one a few times during the NFL coverage on Sunday night. The tongue kiss was priceless! Indigo

Indigo this ad kills me. Although the first time I saw it I had the sound down and thought the honking was coming from outside. Glad I paid attention the second time around.

Yeah, my life would have been very different if there were warning "beeps" every time I'm doing or about to do something stupid. I probably wouldn't have 15 million kids. Or Jepeto.

That one cracks me up every time!

Amazing commercial. I sooo need that.
If I had that horn warning i wouldn't have bought that crappy Nissan.
I've never seen this one, but, of course, don't see much TV out here in the sticks. ;) But it's a good 'un. :)

You really should look into cable, Bryan.

I'd choose Jepeto. Fewer to feed.
Nonamedufus said…
Ha, Ha. Good one.

My 11-year old Altima needs replacing. THIS has given me the impetus I needed to run over to test drive the new model.
nonamedufus said…
Did your car honk to warn you it was time to replace it?
Cheryl said…
No, it went cha-ching one time too many.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, that's so sad. But at least it's still making noises and hash;t stopped running altogether.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.

Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
