Frustrated with a thoughtless spammer
I was driving in the car this morning on an errand, flipping through the AM dial looking for something to point at with outrage, when I heard this ad: "... for the first time in 11 years." (Snippet of music: might be Journey, Styx, or any number of early 80s imitators) "If you order now, you can get the box set!" (more music). Basically, it sounded like some supergroup from my high school years had reunited. But never once after the opening sentence did they ever mention the name of the band.

I was maddened. Totally. Someone needs to remind these people that you need to repeat the name of the product several times if you've bought the ad-time necessary to say it! The band is the product, dammit.

Aren't you glad Head On doesn't make a remedy for erectile dysfunction?

But repetitious and rhythmic stimulation is one of the keys to success in, uh, that endeavor, no?

So that's what I've been doing wrong.

You know...

It might be Spinal Tap. They're doing a reunion for some global warming benifit concert.
