Super Bowl Commercials 2010 Naughty List

Super Bowl Commercials 2010 Naughty List and boobs: WHAT were they thinking???? Sorry, but are the writers of these ads having a problem with their manhood, or is there some unfortunate incident with women they'd like to talk about?

I don't think there's going to be any purchases of Dockers happening in this household in the next decade or so! An ad that has men (ugly-butted men; couldn't they have at least been cute?) running around proclaiming that they have no pants??????? And need to wear the pants in their houses? Dumb. Perhaps the ad-writers should consider that 1/3 of the Super Bowl viewers are women, and not insult them. (Even I watch the Super Bowl; I, the noise-cancelling-headphone-wearer-during-sports-cause-I-hate-their-sound; I watch it for the commercials.) But that also leaves another 2/3 rds audience who are male, and do they really want to been portrayed as buffoons? Probably not, just as women don't want to be portrayed as Wardens, and ball-and-chains. Tsk, tsk.

But the worst ad was the Flo TV spineless ad, that had the guy walking around, shopping, carrying the bra. Apparently, he's spineless 'cause he wasn't watching tv????? Just yuk. I did notice that these same sponsors, in another ad, are also supporters of breast cancer awareness, and relief efforts in Haiti, so they are perhaps not completely worthless scum. Then again, they might be.

Somehow, I feel more forgiving of the Dodge ad, because at least it was funny. Or at least, I really liked the promise of the toilet seat being down.. . . but do men really, really want to be portrayed as such idiots?????? The men I know aren't. And it shouldn't be only up to women telling these ad writers to clean up their acts; just think how we women would feel if WE were the ones who were being portrayed as such boobs (even though it's quite nice that we have boobs.)

Enough.

On to more important things, like my photos of the Disney Cruise. I feel that I should give you some kind of warning at this point, like STAY CALM and CONTINUE TO BREATHE, 'cause you're going to see some extraordinary food. And chocolate.

Glorious chocolate.

What the heck; I'll let the photos speak for themselves. These were photos from the brunch we had at Palos on Day 6 of our Disney Cruise.

OMG! I spotted prosciutto wrapped melon, asparagus in hollandaise sauce . . . But the desserts . . . You need to tell us what they were!!!!! This is too much of a tease!

I agree with you about the commercials. My favorite was the one with the Clydesdale horse and the calf that become friends. I like kind, sappy stories. There's enough meanness in the world.

Didn't watch the super bowl so I can't comment on the commercials BUT YUM! I now am having major sweets cravings. You're making me want to go on another Disney Cruise too ;)

OMG...I wouldn't know what to do with myself...I SO need to go on a cruise!

Yummmmmmm......

I completely agree with you about the commercials during the Superbowl. This year was a dud really, as far as I was concerned. WAY too much meanness and stupidity and not enough creativity! Although, I did think the Betty White one was pretty funny.

Those food picks are scrumptious! WOW! Lucky ducky you!

Joanne said...

Totally agree about the commercials. I liked the Clydesdale and the calf.

That food looks delicious! I think we need to book a cruise!

Denita said...

What a display - I would have to try one of everything!

Just gained 5 pounds looking at all that food!! Watched the Super Bowl but here in Canada we don't get your commercials - have got to go see them on youtube!

Those desserts look wonderful! I think I would probably start with them. :)

I felt this year's ads were just plain 'lamo'. Couple were 'cute' at best. Did you notice how they were kinda grouped. The take-down and tackle were together; the men in underwear were back-to-back (and disgusting I might add). Not one commercial left me feeling like I wanted to purchase that produce.

On the other hand, I am most fond of the grouping of chocolates you posted - much more inspired by these pictures to seek out hidden chocolate in the house.

OMG I totally agree with you on the commercials! I thought the same thing and the man walking around shopping w/bra was the worst one ever! I thought they were awful for making women look so badly! Wish I could word things as well as you but I totally agree!

What? No chocolate chip cookies or brownies? ;)

And I bet you weren't the only one taking photos. ;)
