AS for commercials I find inappropriate- It's the male & female products whatever they are, The yelling banshee, and any commercials where the kids ae smarter than the parents with smart ass answers.
    Ever since I read this earlier, I've had that REM (I think it's them) song, I'll stop the world and melt with you, stuck in my head.

    I often fantasize about getting rid of EVERYTHING I own and buying a boat to live on. No material goods except for what I can fit on a relatively small sailboat. Well one big enough for me and 3 dogs.

    I'm starting to really hate any food commercials because as soon as I see one, I want the food (duh, that's the point). But I really don't need the food, so I don't want to watch the commercials either.

    Actually it's Modern English not REM.

    Re: Inappropriate Commercials

    Bumping this one up.....

    Today daughter had to have some more oral surgery and was feeling less than chipper when we got back home. So I made sure she was all set up on the couch in the family room.....and turned on the TV. She was flipping channels and ended up on the ABC Family Channel. This was about 1 o'clock in the afternoon. I think the show was called something like "Sister, Sister." The show was holding her attention for a bit. Anyway, then a commercial came on for that Extenze stuff.....an all-natural male enhancement product!

    I am glad that she really wasn't paying any attention, and I really wasn't paying attention at first either, but then noticed the commercial and then checked to see just what channel she was on and was surprised that the ABC Family Channel would air such a commercial, since most of its audience is....um....children!

    I used to hate hearing them (and the other questionable material) on morning radio when I used to have to drive my daughter to school when she was younger.

    Even on the Disney radio station they used to have some commercials I felt were way too adult for any kid. I always hated having to answer questions about what did that mean mommy?

    I am still getting those questions, and my youngest is 23. I guess he didn't listen too much when my friends and I would get together and talk trash!
