The amount of crap daytime television programs is only outmatched by the awful commercials. Today I saw the following, all during one break, in this order:
- Clinical Trial for Schizophrenia Medication
- California Walnuts
- Psoriasis Medication
- Ulcerative Colitis Medication
- Democrats @ South Carolina Town Hall Meeting Tonight
I have empathy for anyone with any condition. If a medication can help them, how fantastic is that? I mean, come on Optic Nerve Restoration Elixir! But this back-to-back representation of people living with these three afflictions was enough to make me itch and burn and start naming my personalities. With the Triple Threat I witnessed, I’m suggesting a tonic for hypochondria be slotted in between the politicians and the entertainment industry’s “biggest night”. The only more fitting product placement? Hemorrhoid cream.
