Which annoys you the most? I mute my TV every time the SCREAMING Billy Mays and his beard come on the tube SCREAMING at the top of his lungs about some 'incredible' new product that can perform the impossible but wait! If you order in the next ten minutes I will double the order, just pay for separate shipping and handling .........(which can be as much as the product itself):mad:

Add male enhancement and ED products. And on top of it all, why are all men stupid in commercials? There are exceptions like the fake doctor telling us we need their pill. But all husbands are idiots.

ALL infomercials, yep, Billy Mays and the Sham-wow punk are at the top of the list. The sham-wow is a sham, watch the cola on the carpet demonstration, especially the liquid on the table.
Oprah and the View commercials too.

Most car salesmen.

In the Oklahoma City area we have a few who have reached the point where they actually see themselves as being "TV personalities."

We have a couple who are low key, never scream, and describe their promotions in a conversational tone.

I'd do business with them first.

Man that needs shave and wears tennis shoes not so Brink. Man neatly dressed with shave, Brink. If had just got a TV gig I would at least shave and wear nice shoes not tennis shoes.
I wonder how much Billy Mays makes for doing one of thoes ads?

Agreed.

Also men's products, including the warning to see the doctor if the erection lasts more than 4 hours.


Once I did mention to my doctor, during a checkup, that I needed some of that stuff as I could not last for 4 hours. I received a dirty look in return.

Hey! Those pills really work ... my **** grew 36" in a month but even the constant supply of Viagra won't help anymore.
ShamWow is really great for dehydrating corpses and making mummies.
I heard they are now running Billy Mays commercials 24/7 at Gitmo.

I look at this and find myself - quite satisfied with te decision to dump cable and satellite connection and use the TV set as a monitor to watch tapes and disks. Missing commercials is - wonderful, I do believe.

Watched some TV in the motel we stayed in while in the D-FW area for a get-together just before Christmas. I was not, shall we say, inspired to come home and sign up for cable or satellite service.

I'd say teh feminine hygiene ads were the most distasteful, followed very closely (or perhaps matched) by the ones for ED.

Da telly....

...has done more to destroy American levels of proficiency in reading, math, grammar, manners, diction, pronunciation, manners and skill in interpersonal relations than any other factor in the 20th century. I will not suffer one of the d**nable contraptions to exist under my roof. My last one perished when I assassinated, by proxy, the electronic effigy of William Jefferson Clinton. It is amazing how much more time I have for reading, writing, and working with my horses. I fear, however, that the mind-numbing infernal device has terminally destroyed my interpersonal skills, because I find I cannot relate effectively with the TV-aholics. They make me wish to indulge in regurgitative behavior upon their so-correct shoes....

TV's kinda like the internet. Can only take so much before I want to run screaming down the road. LOL the upside is it can be intertaining for a short while.
