I was up very early this morning and turned on the local news. A Pittsburgh woman is offering to sell advertising space on her body in exchange for tickets to the Super Bowl. Her reasoning is that advertising at the Super Bowl is extremely expensive and she is willing to wear your ad, emblazoned on her body (and car) before, during and after the game. Hmm. Nice try. The offer might be a bit more attractive if, well, the advertising space were a bit more attractive. She might want to contact NationWIDE insurance to see if they are interested......... Forget I said that… it’s just mean.
While discussing my sock rant, my daughter reminded me that a year or two ago someone was trying to sell ad space on eggs. Not Easter eggs, just the good ole everyday white chicken eggs that you probably have in the fridge right now. The idea was that as you cooked breakfast the eggs could have cute little pictures and clips like “Wake up with Eyewitness News”. Not a bad idea. I would especially enjoy this campaign if they had actual photos of news anchors right on the eggs. Who wouldn’t enjoy cracking open Katie Couric’s head and scrambling her brains over a high heat? ….. That comment is probably a bit over the top too, huh?
Perhaps I’m a bit cranky today. Well what do you expect? The weather genius on every local station has predicted snow and freezing rain for today and a probable 3-5 inches tonight into tomorrow. Meanwhile I’m praying for a mere 40 degrees. I want winter to be OVER and if it can’t end, then keep the white stuff on the ski slopes. How on earth do those people in Minnesota do it?
Now I think Ill go finish my coffee and remind my husband to site in his shot gun. That pesky varmint in Punxsutawney will be sticking his head out of his hole next week and I want to be ready.
