The Worst A Man Can Get

This morning circa 08:39, Mary Tyler Moore in the morning attempted to attack white conservatives for their 'profiling' of minorities by using the Gillette ad and asking how does it feel to be profiled.  Mary unwittingly acknowledged that Gillette was guilty of profiling white men.   Tomorrow on CBC Ontario Today, the Gillette backlash.

Mary has a habit of trying to attack Trump and conservatives by stretching the truth.  Last month he claimed the Trump economy isn't  doing as well as expected because  the profits corporations are making are not converting into higher wages for their employees.  Unfortunately for Ms. Mary, his partner in crime Lisa Laphlegm later that day cited the day's release of U.S. economic data and claimed that wages were going up, but there has to be a downside of coarse with Lisa, wait for it; wages are going up too high - causing inflation, thus higher interest rates and we're all going to die thanks to Trump's economic plan - we were better of with President Obama and his mere 2% annual growth.  https://money.cnn.com/gallery/news/economy/2017/01/06/obama-economy-10-charts-final/3.html 

Question for any body who works with Mary, have you ever seen his 'partner' he often mentions?

This ad sounded bad on the radio, but it's even worse watching it.  What's with the barbecues?
Did Proctor and Gamble ever have a concern advertising on Married...With Children?

Note the two second scene at 0:37 in this old Gillette ad.  Looks like sexual harassment.  Any hypocrisy?

Ah, so this is where the cynical, bitter Earl Cowan's come to talk to themselves.

How many Ford Nation pins & MAGA hats are in your collection?

I haven't visited here in a long time; no need to return.

Re: The Worst A Man Can Get

The way I figger, everybody from  Gillette went out after work the night the ad dropped and got drunk.  Their toast? "Success! We got them talkin'!"

A lot of people talked about the Pets.com ad after the 2000 Super Bowl  ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pets.com
 
Schick has joined in on the act as well...   https://www.commdiginews.com/business-2/schick-gillette-toxic-feminism-112143/

Pretty much how I feel.  With all of the "Mary Tyler Moore" comments and pro-Trump crap here, this board has lost any reason to exist.  It was way better when Irvine was here.  But in any case, there is nothing here mentioning KW or Hamilton Radio anymore.  Where are questions about CHYM or K-Lite or CHML?  It just seems to be the Exidor right-wing board.

Jody, that's unfair.

No offense, but if I may, I haven't seen you post anything postive in quite a while... if ever. Just sayin'

No it's not unfair.  There's nothing but politics here (and I'm sorry but it's all right wing.  You can think how you like, but that's not what this board is for).   So then to answer your second question, what is here to inspire me to post at all?  By the way, no sense singling me out for not posting, many MANY others have not as well.

Just Sayin'

Re: The Worst A Man Can Get

You misunderstood me, twice.

First of all my post, "The way I figger, everybody from  Gillette went out after work the night the ad dropped and got drunk.  Their toast? 'Success! We got them talkin'!'" was meant to refute previous comments about the Gillette ad. If the purpose of advertising is to draw attention to your product, the ad was an unqualified success. Yes, some people took issue with it. Gillette knew that going in and went with the campaign anyway.I say bravo Gillette! 

Secondly, I did not mean to single you out for not posting. I said you haven't posted anything positive in quite a while  which is no sin, but even if you ARE sinless I thought it was unfair to cast stones.

What I also thought was unfair and I still do  was labeling me as a MAGA hat wearing right winger. I'm not, and as insipid as they may be, my posts prove it.

Peace, Jody. BTW, I'm a fan.

Hey Mike:

It's all good.  It wasn't you I was labeling.    I'll leave it at that.  No hard feelings I hope.

Re: The Worst A Man Can Get

Apology accepted Mr. Thornton.

Now back to the subject at hand...the worse a man can get runner up, Chuck Gurney, on twitter said "I'm for real now! Whoo hoo! I admit that I am bored this morning, though. First time I've been "at liberty" in 12 years".   

And a few more pictures of interest.  Lester Holt in white face.  https://www.bizpacreview.com/2018/10/30/lester-holt-dressed-as-susan-boyle-photo-puts-self-righteous-nbc-in-bad-spot-after-megyn-kelly-boot-688696

And this video of Alan Park as Barack Obama.  https://youtu.be/yVboJZfPUcQ

# Stand With Jody

President Trump during this morning's press conference complemented Rush Limbaugh by saying he has the largest audience and that “He can speak for three hours without a phone call,” try doing that sometime. For three hours he speaks. He’s got one of the biggest audiences in the history of the world. I mean, this guy is unbelievable.” ... "Anybody can take phone calls, Hello".

Re: The Worst A Man Can Get

Rush delivers a sermon. A phone call would throw him off his cadence. I have heard him  take calls and he's not very good at handling them, imo.  There are many examples of men who delivered similar non-stop preaching to the converted.  Fidel Castro,  on the communist side. Rush and Hannity are on, shall we say, the other side. There's no difference. None of these people, past and present, left or right,  is on your side. They have an agenda. We are all being played. By both sides. It's very depressing if you think about it. So don't! lol

Well, isn't this ironic?  The best a man can get is a happy ending at Gillette stadium.  Toxic masculinity?

Thanks Eldon.  Everyone who has ever mentioned it to me has always said Wasaga Beach as Wah-Say-Ga.  So I appreciate the correction.  apparently Torontonians (which I'm not one) say it as Wa-Say-Ga.  I'm from Stoney Creek.  Hamiltonians suffer from the same affliction.

I'll make sure that I say Was-Saw-Ga next time.

Re: The Worst A Man Can Get

Actually what you might want to do is speak like ordinary people speak. You know, the people who listen to you. The ones you want to identify with you. Maybe it IS  pronounced to-mah-to, but hat's not what most people say,  and when YOU say it they think you're pretentious. The traditional pronunciation of short-lived is with a long "i".  Try saying THAT on the radio just once!

maybe check in with bayshore's CHGB Wasaga... oh wait.

anyway, as a 30 year resident of simcoe county, i vote for wa-say-ga. those who say wa-sah-ga are the same who say tor-ron-TO instead of toronna..  Spent many an hour at the DA-rd, not the da-RD.

such a silly thing, but at least this board is talking about something!!!

Re: The Worst A Man Can Get

In that vein, Bucky, there's a Pierre Street in Windsor. The locals pronounce it Pee-ree. When you're a "broadcast professional" you better pronounce it Pee-ree too.   You can explain and argue 'til the end of days that it's  wrong and you will be right. But you will lose.

With broadcast studios in Owen Sound and Collingwood (but not in Wah-sah-ga) it's probably not a reliable resource on this topic
 

um ya, that was meant as sarcasm.  thanks for picking up on that!

it's still Wah-say-ga
