Random Friday After Thanksgiving Nuggets Of Potpourri

Nugget One:
As I was clicking through some archived stuff over at Newsbusters, I came across this bit where apparently they have their panties in a wad regarding a sex toy being advertised in prime time:

It’s hard enough watching television with your kids these days given all the Viagra and Cialis commercials, but are we now going to have to put up with ads for sex toys?

Trojan’s vibrating fingertip massager for women has been around for over a year, as has the commercial for it.

However, I didn’t expect it to appear in the middle of CMT’s prime time airing of “Field of Dreams” Monday night.

The commercial for the massager is at the link, but I have seen it several times on TV.  Seems rather tame to me, I mean it’s not like they are showing how the thing works.  But then again the boy is 6 and the commercials on Cartoon Network/Boomerang aren’t a big concern to me.  And I’m certainly a lot less offended with this commercial than I am with the constant parade of cock hardening commercials you see during nightly network television.  Offended isn’t the right word.  Sick and tired is probably more like it.   I mean is there a man over 50 who doesn’t know there is a pill out there to help in the boner department?

Maybe Trojan’s ads should be shown after 10 p.m., but some ads should simply never be seen. I guess I am going to agree to disagree on this one.

Nugget Two:
Here’s an article regarding attitudes of male office workers in South Korea about the attire of their female co-workers.

Almost three-quarters of South Korean male office workers feel uncomfortable when female colleagues show too much leg or cleavage in the workplace, a survey has revealed.  A poll of 1,254 employees by the job portal site CareerNet found that 74 percent of men felt upset with the attire of their female co-workers. Some 56 percent of them cited micro-miniskirts as their chief complaint, while 51 percent objected to excessive cleavage. Low-rise trousers that reveal women’s underwear, “killer heels” and flashy outfits were also cause for complaint.

Ummm, were these 74% gay??

Meanwhile, a similar number of male office workers in Japan indicated that they would prefer their female co-workers work in the nude while being violated by multi-tentacled anime creatures.  But really, who are we to judge either of these cultures and their ancient history of being really weird.

Nugget Three:
And lastly, and I know this is old, but this is one badass marijuana cave hideout.  And frankly worth looking at again.  Visions of Pineapple Express.

You gotta have a certain respect for criminals who go all out in their crime commitment.  Of course this could all could just be a misunderstanding over private hemp use.  And really, who couldn’t use an escape hatch from their house?
