an open letter to Mars, Incorporated

Dear Mars Incorporated,

RE: Your Agency Who is Creating These Snickers Ads.

Please keep on bringing this magic into the world.

This is 180 degrees from your past couple of godawful campaigns which forced us to look at brain collapsing words like "Hungerectomy," "Peanutopolis" and "Substantialiscious."

Granted, I make up horrible words all the time.

But, I don't slap them on the side of a bus and unleash them unto an unsuspecting public. You were not part of the answer back then, Mars. You were a part of the problem...to turn our nation state into a horde of Beavi.*

But with this new campaign...I forgive you and welcome you back with open arms.

While I rarely partake in a Snickers, I can promise to do you a proper and pick up a Milky Way Midnight.

Keep it coming.

*the plural of Beavis

just do it

Maybe it's because I've had less than 5 hours sleep.

Maybe it's because I'm tired of the Dems rolling over on all the bullshit that FOX, the tea baggers and a number of conservative/republicans have been slinging for months and I agree that turning on each other right now over something like this is the last thing we need.

Maybe it's that I'd give my left nut (I have a pair under my bed) to hear once, JUST ONCE, someone in Washington just let down their guard and really say what they are really thinking, instead of what is expected...

But, man. This SNL monologue hit me just right.

I'm no fan of Rahm Emanuel, per se, and I think that this is Andy Samberg's imitation of Mark Walhberg channeling Emaunel...but, hell, it works for me.

"In conclusion, boo fucking hoo. Get over it."

In other news...Dave Grohl has another band?
Jaybus. I'm always the last to know.

get yourself a sweet Madonna

Feeling like I've spent a night in the box.
