Did we really hear that commercial?


Just now, on a certain local news station...

"You didn't give up on sex! Don't give up on birth control either! There are so many different methods.."

For the love of God! (One of my friends always says that and I have picked it up.)

Does everything have to be right out there? Last night we cracked up hearing an ad for some, ahem, prostate medication. It was telling guys something like: "You can stop getting up at night to go to the bathroom. Instead, you can get up for something a lot more fun!"

Considering all this, it kills us, this one cemetery guy we hear on the radio. It might have been Forest Lawn, might have been the Catholic Cemeteries, who knows. There are so many people these days competing for our dead body, we lose track.

Anyway, the graveyard guy begins: "I'd like to talk to you about something that used to be considered taboo."

What in the world is considered taboo?

What kind of a grabber is that?

We have to laugh every time we hear...


... those anchor types on WBEN-AM having to say, "There's an app for that."

They have to say it at every newscast!

And this has been going on for months. If not years. We forget when they came out with their app.


We can laugh freely and affectionately at WBEN because they are practically family, what with those call letters. Buffalo Evening News, get it? Anyway, it is just so funny hearing them trying to say "There's an app for that" with all kinds of different inflections so it does not get boring.

Sometimes we tune in just to hear them say it!


It's OK, WBEN. You can laugh at us too.

We won't be offended.
