I do not watch television. I couldn’t tell you what are the popular programs running now, nor can I tell you what are the new programs, or anything. I do, however, turn on my screen to watch old movies and occasionally – occasionally – catch up on news.
I notice that so many – the majority, in fact – of commercials are pushing drugs and pseudo-drugs. Dang. And I am getting tired of George Foreman, “Broadway” Joe Namath, Crabby Ass Martha, Amy “Bikini” Jacobson, Sebastian Gorka, Pat “White Bucks” Boone, Jimmie “Dyno-mite JJ” Walker, Mark Spitz, Joe Piscopo, et al shilling for secondary insurance and pseudo pain drugs.
And then there’s Brigitte the Sexpot from Le France hawking vegetables in a capsule.
Then there’s all those actual drug commercials. “Tell your doctor . . . “
This is just an observation of the fear huckstering so popular these days.

You forgot William Shatner. Captain Kirk and his sleep apnea machine.

Ah, yes. His sleep apnea machine. I also hear that Jimmie “Dy-no-mite” Walker is hawking something else now, but I have not seen it — yet.
