Day 112, September 12

For today, let's return to the subject of questionable taste in advertisements and commericals.

The other day, I was subjected to a prolonged commercial on television about incontinence.  Okay.  Incontinence exists.  We get it.  But do the manufacturers of various pads have to go on and on (and on) about it?  Give us credit that we can find our own way to the incontinence products aisle of the drug store and leave it at that.

Around the same time, I stumbled onto a commercial for "mesh relapse" corrective surgery.  This was sponsored by a lawyer who wanted to represent anyone who had had their mesh relapse.  Seriously?  If I wanted to go to court for redress for my relapse, I would not choose someone who advertised in such a vulgar manner.

Finally, I ran across a commercial for a product guaranteed to cure "feminine itch."  Once again, give us menopausers some credit for taking care of our own itch.  Don't broadcast it on television while I'm watching a program with my grandchildren.

Okay.  There you have it.  Vulgar advertisements for sensitive conditions that should remain private.

  1. You are so right. Although, with this new lowering of standards, you might get a situation like one imagined by my husband. What if a coach got so mad with one of his players that he put him on the injured reserve list with the reason "ED".
