"Hello Mate....Over Here"

I watch a lot of TV, far too much, especially when I should be studying.  I will have an abundance of time to watch TV in less than 2 weeks.  Hours and hours of TV are being recorded while I sit in this hotel room in preparation for catch up.  I am quite selective in my programme choice, I don't watch any old thing, however some of my favourite things are adverts.

My glass is always at least half full, many times overflowing and I laugh at almost anything.  I find many amusing things in life, most of which no-one else finds funny.  When I was younger there was a Christmas advert for KFC which basically showed those of us that could not or would not cook over the Christmas period that they would be open.  Their way of doing this was to have a man walk into a glass door which was locked.  Not too funny I hear you say?  I would beg to differ!  My mother still talks about how much I laughed.  I hurt my side laughing.  I cried and cried and cried laughing and for days afterward would randomly burst out laughing again when thinking about the advert.  Doesn't take much you say?  I agree, I am easily pleased.

My favourite advert at the moment involves weeds.  I'm not keen on weeds, they annoy me.  I have very little in the way of plant life in the gardens at home for 2 reasons.  One is because I can think of better things to do than pull pesky weeds up and the other is because Fred the giraffe thinks he is a herbivore and ate them all when he first came home from the pet shop and continues to do so. 

However, this advert has me rolling about laughing every time.  I don't know whether Resolva is a better weed killer than others and I don't care.  I think these weeds are cute, I need some in my garden.  If weeds looked this cute I'd let them live in my garden - they could talk to me every morning before I went to work and they would set me up for the rest of the day.  I would even think it funny when they stuck their tongue out at me and blew me a raspberry. 

Weird?  Yes.  Childish?  Yes.  Do I care?  No, because the advert makes me happier than I already am and reminds me that life cannot be taken seriously.  The only problem is that they don't show it often enough.  I should record it so that I could play it randomly every day.....
