I'm with you, Kiel. And don't look now, but here comes the Cialis Western Open at the end of this month. How'd you like to have that on your resume? Winner: Cialis Western Open. It's just embarrassing.

Why does everyone who has this kind of comment start off by saying "I'm not prude but ...?" Well, I am a Christian and I am prude, so excuse me if I would like to watch a bit of t.v. and not be bombarded with foul language and sex. Starting off comments like that tell everyone else "It is o.k. that I have this opinion because I am not prude." Otherwise, I share your same annoyance with all the E.D. ads. It makes me feel uncomfortable to have Golf (golf of all things!!) on while my neice is in the same room.

Mr. Prude asks, essentially, "Why the disclaimer?" It's not a justification of an opinion; it's a rhetorical device. Specifically, such a statement is a pre-emptive strike against those who might disagree with your thesis not because of the content of that thesis, but because they disagree with a larger world-view that the thesis might imply (whether that implication is intentional, or accurate, or not).



Why does it matter that I'm not a prude? It matters because prudes might well be offended by bare ankles. And if so, would naturally be offended by ED ads. So who cares what prudes think? They're offended by everything. That's neither noteworthy nor original. It's expected.



On the other hand, if someone who is not a prude is offended by something, well then, whatever the offensive material is must be pretty bad, or at least worthy of some closer scrutiny.



Bottom line, though: If Jennifer Mario, Mr. Prude, and I all get offended by these horrible ads, I'm guessing more folks do too, and the offense cuts across all sorts of demographics. The drug companies, or at least the PGA Tour, might want to pull their muzzles out of the drug company trough and take note if they want to keep viewers around.

Quote:' If they invented a "longer & straighter tee shots" pill, that would probably sell very well also ... even to women.'

Agreed! I'm always looking for something to help me get it straighter, and into the hole.
