    The Liberty Car Insurance ads are ridiculous! So are the Progressive Insurance ones. The Geico Insurance ads with the lizard and turtles are pretty hilarious, but. Liberty Mutual Fortune Teller, "Zoltar", is ridiculous also.

    A tag line of "customizes your insurance so you only pay for what you need" qualifies as one of the stupidest ever. When was the last time that you paid for insurance that you didn't need without somebody telling you?

    Any of the "erectile dysfunction" ads, especially the two idiots each in their own bathtub. Whaaa?? Or any other pharmaceutical for that matter. "Ask your doctor????" I'm not in the habit of requesting random drugs, thanks.

    At least they are not the political ads. They are running one against NC Senator Thom Tillis that I know for a fact are nothing but lies. I get so angry seeing that that I feel my blood pressure go up.

    I mute the sound of commercials or flip to another station without one.

    I'm sick of drug commercials adapting the songs of our youth.

    Just stop.

    OK, hands down, the WORST TV commercial, in my book, is the one with the bears who are obsessed with wiping their butts with some name brand TP. "Enjoy the Go!".......!!!!?????? Gee, I guess I'll take a TV into the crapper, maybe sit there with a nice slice of pizza and a cold beer, and have a few girls in there with me to entertain me while I do my business! What a bunch of disgusting nonsense. I wouldn't buy that brand of TP, pushed by those disgusting, copraphobic bears, if it was the only brand left on Earth!

    -Copraphobic?

    Can't we have a word for those of us who tolerate crap but don't wanna be forced to embrace it?

    -Copratolerant?
    -Coprabivalent?
    -Employee of the Month?

    Thing that pisses me off, and I sincerely hope that this does not make me racist or homophobic is the stereotypes in commercials.
    The "empowered" women striding thru the store in a wine commercial
    The chill black chick in a car kickin back and snapping her fingers.
    The super animated black guy the burger king has hired
    The incredible numbers of multiracial families that exist no where but TV land
    The oh so special fathers that are shown raising their offspring (parenting) as if it makes them some kind of hero, just because they can change a diaper.

    Pandering at its best!
