So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Can't make this shit up

Driving back to work from running to Target during lunch and hear a radio spot for Benjamin Moore paints. Their toll-free telephone line is 1-800-BMcolor. Swear to God. The marketing team apparently has no new moms, daycare providers or pediatric nurses on their staff of they'd know that we immediately hear BM and think of poop and the color part of it just makes it all the richer! I can't tell you how many times I'd call the pediatrician when Pickle was a baby and they'd ask about his BMs or I'd call and tell them he had an orange BM, what does that mean? (by the way, baby poop can change colors based on what they eat). But, I digress.

I really thought about calling and asking whoever answers how many poop jokes they get each day. I bet they get a few crank calls every now and then.
