Friday, September 18, 2020 – Snarky Friday Returns
Never mind. I just looked at this Saturday’s college football games. There is very little to snark about because I have no interest in any team playing.
Perhaps an exception to is Baylor and University of Houston. Throwback to the Southwest Conference. Sic ‘Em Bears! That is on FOX tomorrow at 11:00. At the same hour on ESPN there is Tulsa and Oklahoma State. Go Pokes!
And perhaps Stephen F. Austin and University of Texas @ San Antonio. This is interesting only if you attended either university or better if the parental unit graduated from SFA and the children graduated from the UTSA. PLUS there is 12-ounce beer and four quarters to the game. Ax ‘Em Jacks. This is on ESPN3 for you streamers.
The one item to snark about is the majority of the LSU football players tested positive for COVID. Guess it hard to not party in Baton Rouge. HWIT – the winner of the SEC will be the healthiest team still on its feet in November.
Since there is so little snark, I devised another thought question for you. Many of us are spending an extraordinary time in our homes. This leads to endless hours of time wasted by watching television. Since March I have seen every episode on the Investigative Discovery (ID) Channel and am currently working on the OWN. FYI – They will always find you from the cameras at Walmart. And the spouse usually did it. But I digress.
The point is that we are watching television. So here is your assignment.
Rank the following television commercials from one to four in terms of irritation and obnoxiousness with one being “it is only on for 30 seconds” and four “where is the damn remote mute button.”
- Joe Namath hawking Medicare
- William Shatner hawking the sleep machine cleaner
- LiMu Emu and Doug hawking insurance – you may substitute the creepy fortune teller in the booth
- Any commercial of your choice that deals with the release of bodily fluids or deals with bodily functions, including but not limited to your intestinal tract or your urinary tract
As you are ranking these television commercials, please notice that they all air just about the time you are sitting down to dinner.
Until next Friday, when real football begins, have a nice weekend. Stay safe and wear your mask.
