The purpose of commercials is to drive you mad.
(This comic strip was previously published on June 6, 2011.)
Now buy twice as much or we will play it double!
Okay, okay, I will!
Silly. Silly, silly., TV Advertisers . Even I know …..just keep repeating chocolate commercials dah!
It is difficult to resist a good chocolate commercial. They don’t have enough of them.
Agree with Twink. I want more chocolate commercials
And it goes without saying, more chocolate as well!
Yes let’s have more
chocolates Loon 🙂 xxx
Oh yes, let’s!
Even here in Germany we get infomercials from America dubbed in English.
You are so lucky.
Do’h! We get American infomercials dubbed in German.
That must be even more entertaining.
I bet you love those Dave 🙂
Thank God for the up button on the remote. The down button works good also.
What about the sideways button? That’s my favorite!
On to the next commercial!
Ha ha oh these stupid commercials. But hey yes to all the chocolate commercials cos they are doing public service.
What did you buy ?
I’m too embarrassed to tell! Okay, it was a subscription to a useless magazine.
All it takes is everyone to buy just one time and they make millions.
You should make a commercial Twink!
That would be a good idea. Maybe I could sell my latest book!
That’s what I mean. You have all the best recipes in the world….let the world know it!
Thank you, Deb. I’ll have to think of what to say.
Yes, I know. Suckers like me help encourage them.
Your not a sucker.
Well sometimes I am when I buy something I don’t need.
Happens to woman all the time.
Tell me about it! Would you like a nice small white purse?
Got one, and don’t need mine either.
I think it’s time we go through our things since spring is coming up and donate.
Yes, that would be a good idea. I’d like to donate Winky!
I think you’re going to have to keep, Winky! Some things we just can’t let go of no matter how we feel about it/him. :/
Yes, you’re right. But sometimes he drives me crazy!
I know he does, but you know deep down Winky adores you. 🙂
You’re not supposed to tell her that!!
I didn’t really have to…me things she knows.
Well she sure doesn’t act like she knows.
I think she likes to make me nervous!
On, that’s because you feel the way you said i wasn’t suppose to say to her.
I guess so. But I’m always kind of nervous around Twink!
Because I’m always afraid I’ll say or do the wrong thing around her!
That because you like her and you want her to like you too. Your okay Winky….just be yourself. 🙂
I’ll try. But being myself usually gets me in trouble!
Know does you better than you, but try to stay out of trouble.
I can’t talk right. I’m going to bed now.
I’ll try to stay out of trouble by going to bed.
Yes Deb a Wombie
advert would be fun 🙂 xxx
Maybe I could make one advertising my chocolate!
And they know everything you do. 😉
They sure seem to!
We rarely watch regular television. We watch Amazon Prime and Netflix. No commercials there.
Have a fabulous day. 🙂
That sounds like a much better choice.
Oh, if only it were true… I’d love to see some commercials bite the dust, but no….
They just keep repeating them and repeating them and repeating them!
Oh, those annoying commercials! That’s why we usually flip from channel to channel; no patience! And how did we ever live without remotes? 🙂
Binky is much more of a flipper than I am, but I don’t mind doing it for commercials.
It’s best to record everything
and then just zoom through the
ad’s 🙂 Yaaaaaay
I suppose we could do that as well.
Grrrr too many of those
repetitive adverts on everything 🙁
No way would I buy a product
though… Yes you’ve been had
there for sure… Oh dear, and still
the adverts continue… 🙁
You think they’d have the courtesy to stop running the same ad a million times a day after you have bought their product. But no.
Yeah dumb products but the Wombies are wise not to buy 🙂
Well sometimes I have to admit to not being so wise when I end up buying their product.
That would be great if it worked that way. As a seller (not a consumer)
I don’t think they need any more hold over us!
Some commercials do pass the annoying point very early on. 😉
More and more do these days.
When commercials become annoying, I will not buy what they sell.
That’s the best strategy you can employ.
There is not enough money in the world to make it all stop.
No, I don’t think there is. Maybe we could buy the TV station.
I can’t watch t.v. anymore for this reason.
It’s put me off TV as well.
Now that’s interactive TV. So if I buy more McDonald’s burgers they will stop advertising them?
That’s what they’d like you to believe!
Great Twink, I’ll try it
It doesn’t seem to work, though.
Maybe I’ll start with a McWombie Burger…
That must be one that’s 100% chocolate!
That’s why I rarely watch TV now … no more annoying ads … You should try it to Wink.
Yes, I think that’s the only way to avoid those annoying commercials.
True… and they are everywhere!!!
I could live without ever seeing another commercial for as long as I live.
These commercials can be quite frustrating. Nice comic strip. 🙂
They certainly can be!
Oh c’mon you never can have enough swirley mops or spray-can rubber coating right? W.C.C.
When I watch TV, I watch recorded shows so I can fast forward through commercials. Otherwise, I just put it on mute. Too many ads on TV!
That’s what we should do!
