This is really more of an anicdote of my own personal experience
than anything else but none the less i thought it was rather amusing and so i will tell you :

I was "working" on my laptop with my t.v on ( yes that is my typical Friday night) and an advert came on and there was an Irish woman's voice talking but i didn't bother to look up, but first of all what it actually was, was one of those text subscriptions where you pay gargantuan amounts of money in order to find out innacurate and stupid things and in this case it was to find out the name of your future child and said you had to text " BORN" to bla bla bla. Remember she was Irish so what i actually heard was text "PORN".And this happened to be the only thing that caught my attention so as i was looking up at the screen thinking "well thats a bit forward" , there just happened to be a picture of a baby.

* Rubs Eyes*
( it took me far too long to figure out what had actually happened)

If you managed to get the punchline throughout these ramblings congratualtions.

pblthhhhhh

that's me doing a spittake with my coffee.

once on facebook i was trying to send a "gift" that was a picture of a baby to a friend with new babies. i accidentally clicked on an ad (because they intentionally put them in a confusing place...) for free condoms!!

so i ended up writing "free condoms!" next to the gift.

then, i'm so inept, i sent this gift like 4 times in a row.

my friend thought it was very creative junk mail until i fessed up.

I do remember thinking, hmm is she trying to tell me that I could have used these 9 months ago?

Adverts, I think, are nefarious, especially in women's magazines.
I once heard something highly sexual in a Disaronno ad and wondered if it was intentional.

I no longer believe that we can keep silent. We never really do, mind you. In one way or another, we articulate what has happened to us through the kind of people we become.
