What if Starbucks Marketed like Evangelicals?

This is so funny, I almost had my non-pretentious, non-Starbucks coffee coming out of my nose!  Too bad it requires a parody (not too far removed from reality) to show the silliness of it all:



A-musement (26 Sep)

As one who totally identifies with these nerdy Elementary school kids, this commercial makes my sides hurt in laughter…

A-musement (2 May)

It has been almost three months since we’ve had any a-musement around here!!! So here’s my favorite T-mobile commercial of all time…probably because I see this conversation happening around our dinner table in about 7 or 8 more years:

Disclaimer: I have no relation with T-mobile in any way, but they have the best commercials…

Amusement (6 Feb)

It’s been awhile since we’ve taken a walk on the lighter side of things, and after finding this jewel of a YouTube special, I can wait no longer…I’ve always been amused by celebrities making fun of other celebrities, including themselves, but this treasure is somebody else poking some light-hearted fun at celebrities, saying the things we’re all thinking.

This video is a parody of Nickelback’s “Rockstar,” video, which is side-splitting in itself, if not a bit off color. Anyway, enjoy:

(For the uninitiated, here is Nickelback’s original)

Other classics of the genre include two of my perennial favorites…

“Celebrity” by Brad Paisley…and the song that may have started this madness, John Mellencamp’s “Pop Singer”

Amusement (11 Dec)

No need to look at our high school achievement scores to know we’re a nation of world-class idiots (or top notch lawyers)…tonight as I’m putting butter into the fridge, I turned over the package to marvel at the fact that, “Wow, it really is one hundred percent fat.”  At that point a warning label catches my eye.  Thinking the surgeon general has finally decided to warn people away from this artery-clogging stuff, I decide to read it.  Much to my chagrin, here is what I saw:

WARNING:  Contains milk.

After re-reading it to make sure I didn’t miss anything, I asked our ten year-old daughter, “What’s the single ingredient in unsalted butter.”  Her reply…”Milk.  Is this a trick question?”
