Today’s story is one of shock and outrage.  It is a true story.  It is a story of something that occurred at work.  Let’s begin.

I have been working some very long hours at work trying to meet a ridiculous deadline.  I spend these long hours mostly out on our assembly floor next to the machine I am trying to start up.  The assembly floor is not a terribly clean place.  The guys make some effort cleaning their work areas, but it’s a warehouse-like space so it’s never as neat and clean as the office portion of our building.

Anyway, as I was doing stuff next to the machine, I decided that I needed to reference the electrical diagram.  I took the drawings out their pocket on the machine and as I was perusing the drawing, I suddenly found a large black and red spider walking across the top page. There is a picture a spider after the cut.

The other night, I was watching some TV…or really, I had the TV on in the background as white noise while I was cleaning.  Anyway, Law & Order went to a commercial break and this commercial came on.

At first, I thought it was a spoof of an infomercial.  You know how they make everything really ridiculous in order to make their product seem so much more useful?  They’re something like the beginning of this commercial.

I thought the Sensa commercial was actually one for where they poke fun of how ridiculous these infomercials are.  But…it wasn’t.  It’s a real commercial.  AND!  They say they’re “proud to announce the debut of our national commercial!”


That’s really the only emoticon that can describe the situation.

Obtw, the animation in the bigspot commercial really bothers me.
