    And this year's best advertising slogan goes to...


    "I'll have the roast duck, with the mango salsa."


    Masochism is a training adaptation.

    That's hard to top.
    Those "Lance in Your Pants" adds are pretty rediculous, but they make me laugh.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    I love how the guy who posted the adverts calls them 'condescending', yet HE'S the one who posted them, and I'd put money on the fact that him and his mates probably run around calling eachother 'monkeyboy' and joking about 'spanking the monkey'.

    Ahh yes that was freaking funny.
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.
    "Stop Ruining my joke!", "No, a joke implies humor attached at no additional cost"
    So many sayings, so little sig space.

    Yes, the GEICO caveman ad is STILL funny, and I must have seen it thousands of times.

    I really like the Geico gecko one , where he explains his role in the ad (unfortunately I forget the exact words) and says in the end: You think you are watching entertaining television, but you're actually watching <whispers> a commercial...
    Too cute!

    What a casting coup to get Dirk Novitski to play the caveman
    on the right. Saved a bundle on makeup cost.
    Iím not familiar precisely with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said whatever it was.

    Geico gecko and caveman ads... great stuff. I'll stop the fast-forwarding DVR to watch those.

    The cavemen are funnier, but Messing with Sasquatch makes me laugh too.

    I love the new VW Rabbit ads. No words ... no need. Makes me want one.
