"Sheeyoot." "Yeah, sheeyoot."

Regarding commercials:

OK, I have to admit, Citibank's dubbed-over identity theft commercials are pretty darn funny. Especially this one, featuring Thelma and Norma. Steve and I watch in fascination, and giggle, every time.

Meanwhile, the ads where they have a Jimmy Fallon look-alike as The Mac, and a stodgy fat white businessman as The PC, are incredibly, annoyingly condescending. I have a Mac--two, in fact--and love them, but...Apple, you're embarrassing us. Don't.

Possibly there's no such thing as bad advertising, true. I like them on some guilty level, but I wouldn't have given the go-ahead if I were the ad department person. I have my doubts as to whether they'd really convert any PC users. But some people respond well to being razzed, so who knows? :)

OK, fanfic has officially gone too far now. Yikes.
