    I listen to WRKO out of Boston on internet radio to wind down after a day at work over here in Spain. Nice to listen to a little Rush and Howie in my "native tounge".

    But the continious internet ads for "Hands Only CPR" with the clippity-cloppity" background music, the "Fatherhood.gov" ad with Obama telling everyone how to be a better father, and the United Way ad with some woman with the heavy accent talking about how helping people get their "earned income tax credit" makes her feel like she "gets back more than she gives" gets me to thinking about drop testing the laptop from the 6th floor!:steamed:

    Any other radio ads that drive you crazy?? I'd rather have the local ads than the stuff that gets put on the internet and what really torques me, is that my tax dollars are being used to promote how great a father Obama is...but if you have doubts, check out fatherhood.gov.:upeyes:

    Little ditty for a local company...sung with a nasally monotone accompanied by guitar.

    Gotta blue spot on the floor,
    That thing weren't there before.
    Let KirkPro Cleaning tidy it up.
    Let KirkPro Cleaning tidy it up.

    Good God man what's that smell?
    Suddenly I don't feel so well.
    Let KirkPro Cleaning tidy it up.
    Let KirkPro Cleaning tidy it up.

    Brown toilet paper on the wall,
    Lord sakes don't open that stall,
    Let KirkPro Cleaning tidy it up.
    Let KirkPro Cleaning tidy it up.

    Several other verses. So bad it sticks in mind.

    a mattress shop in Auburn used to have quite a distasteful radio promo blatantly involving what we all do on a mattress other than sleep :whistling:

    That Tom Shane whiner from The Shane Company jewelers makes me sick. Valium addicts have more energy than that guy.

    I have a hard time telling apart paid advertisements from the actual music/news/talk programming. Sometimes only the "small print" (unintelligiblelegaldisclaimerreadveryfastwithoutanypauses) gives it away.
