Beleive me, I've had a a lot of important stuff bothering me lately! To wit:
* Antacid Commercials- What is with these things? Some gravelly voiced guy is walking around a pure white room, passing by giant boxes of antacid, and talking about heartburn in an earnest way... Where is that white room? Is this guy some kind of doctor? If not, why should we trust what he has to say about antacid? Are we supposed to believe him just because of his gravelly voice? I don't get it.
* Car Commercials- Seems like half of the car commercials on television revolve around really weak jokes based on cliched ideas, like the joke about how men never ask for directions. The other half are about cars riding down twisty roads. Where are these roads, and where are the cars going to? That's something I'd like to know. Also, why do car commercial announcers have such whiny voices? Once again, I don't get it.
* Governmental Meddling
with the Free Market in Russia- Despite President Putin's recent
commitment to fostering a free market in Russia, his regime continues
to strong-arm Russian business leaders who he fears may come close to
rivaling his power. These and other methods to curb democracy and the
free market have yielded stability in the short term, but if events in
Georgia a few years ago are any indication, this stability may not endure.
Hey, what gives, Vladimir? I just don't get it.
Well, I have to say I feel
much better after getting all that off my chest.. Please enjoy the rest
of Spring Cleaning week here at Supermasterpiece.
