People tell me that my sarcasm and cynicism will get me into trouble some day. We'll see.

She Loves You

This month marks the forty-fifth anniversary of one of the most beloved #1 hits from The Beatles: She Loves You, with exciting lyrics including:

"She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah," and culminating with the unforgettable lyrics:
"She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, YEAHHHHH."

A few years later The Rolling Stones, a band that some have argued had sprung up in answer to The Beatles rosy cheeked songs, wrote a song called "Start Me Up" containing such amusing lyrics as:

"You make a dead man come."

And people complain about the direction song lyrics are headed these days.

Starting 'em young

Saw the first pic from a post on one of my fave blogsites. Picture of Mattel's "Ken" doll - Barbie's main squeeze.

How could one help but notice the obvious direction the advertising people were going with those trunks, huh?

Little girls only saw the cool things she could do with this new doll from the ad.

But I'm sure it was Mom the ad guys were targeting. The Mom who controls the purse strings when it comes to purchasing decisions like this one.

Mom may not have been able to detect why she was drawn to the ad, but drawn she may have been.

Subtle, guys. Real subtle.
