Re: Colons*

I've said it before and I'll say it again- I understand some marketing teams have such a crappy (that will be funny in a moment) product their only option is to make a cheesy, self-deprecating (or defecating! again, funny in a sec) commercial. I pity the marketeers who are stuck with Pepto Bismol, Mucinex, Tampax, etc. Topping the list of undignified products is Phillips Colon Health. This is a painful commercial to watch thanks to its level of corniness** but I can't just let it go without note, can I? The dude who posted this on YouTube couldn't resist his commentary, right? So how can I be expected to keep from Ad Bitizing it? Clearly, I can't. I also couldn't keep from visiting their website out of morbid curiosity. It's as respectable as possible, and they offer a "forward this to a friend" option! Naturally, I'll be busy looking up my frenemies' email addresses on Facebook for the rest of the night; a colon cleanse would double as a stick up the butt remover, yes? I've got a busy evening ahead of me!

*Did you get that? Or was it too much of a stretch? I was just gagging to use a colon punctuation in my title.
**Oh dear, that could act as a disgusting pun if that's where your head happens to go.
