It's Friday, we all need a laugh...

... so today I'll break from answering questions and post this most amazing and hilarious nugget.

Rachel of Lessons Learned, bless her, posted a link in this blog, a link to Scalzi's report of his visit to the creationist museum. It's a long post but oh so worth taking the time to read.

Scalzi made his way to my favourites list with that one post. That museum seems positively surreal and his description of it is great. Check out both their blogs, it'll give you something to do while you're pretending to work.

And a new Viagra commercial... "See a doctor if your erection lasts more than 4 hours"! If a guy was poking at me with a woody for more than four hours, I can guarantee he'd also be seeing a doctor for a black eye... and probably a broken bone - and yes, it might just be that one.

Poor Elvis. (If for any reason the link doesn't work, look up Viva Viagra on YouTube).

OMG this is way too funny...

I can feel Elvis turn over in his grave... who knew his songs would be used to sell Viagra??? lol Thanks for the laugh :)

Rachel said...

Aw, Thanks for the shout-out! I'm glad you found the link, too.

That creationism museum gave me the heeby jeebies. I shouldn't have waited so late to look over there. Now I'm afraid I'll have nightmares.

there is some scary stuff out there. I hate this trend of using dead people to endorse stuff, it's tasteless and bizzarre.

"Ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for sex."

Those are the saddest words I have ever heard.

Geewits what is really frightening is that people visit and think that it is all real, go figure.

Aw c'mon. You know that if Elvis were still alive he'd be IN the commercial.

Followed the link to you from Urban Pedestrian and what can I say? I'm hooked. You're in my Faves. Don't let me down.

A four hour woody. The mind, and other things, boggleth.
Did you know (trivia time) that de Maupassant died of satyriasis? Thought I'd share that.

I saw that Viagra commercial--yikes!--how uncomfortable would a four hour erection be?!!--and imagine going to the emergency room with that issue??

All these sorts of commercials disgust me but this one especially so. Elvis would not be happy. He told me so in the 7-11 last week. ;)

OMG, I am in shock.

I like how they had to clean it up for TV. Those old men aren't taking Viagra for their 20 yr old g-friends, they are looking forward to going home to the wholesome, sweet loving of a good woman.

Big Brother so the you tube video is not a commercial? Too funny... In this case, even though it's really a dumb use of an even more dumber song (sorry guys, I can't stand Elvis) I guess it's better than the very stupid commercial of men and women speaking viagra...

I can understand that we need to be entertained but I'd like to think that everyone has heard by now about Viagra and we don't need to be subjected to two old men/women yakking about whatever they're yakking about in a totally incoherent language...

Foxtrot - Elvis has been used for a lot of things.

Rachel - You're welcome. Although that link? Creepy place.

Geewits - I'd like to visit the place for a laugh but the thought of giving money to these people stops me cold.

Toast - Tasteless and bizarre indeed.

Josie - And it might entail that there is a reason you can't get it up.

BB - Creationists live in their own little twilight zone.

Kwach - You're probably right. And I'm flattered to be in your faves. I'll try to keep you happy.

Ian - Gee, thanks for sharing... I wonder how many Viagra boys will share the fate.

Susan - It would be rather embarassing I'd think.

POP - I take it you and Elvis have a special relationship...

Too Lively - I had the same reaction. The boys actually want to bof a hot 20 year old...

Foxtrot - It is a commercial, he was referring to Geewits comment on the creationist museum I believe.
