I heard one of those commercials on the radio on Friday that sure is a noodle scratcher.
The lady's part was one who was a total ditz. She is talking to a man about a Fair that she is throwing in her backyard. She is making cream puffs, and a neighbor is putting together a band. She is doing this because of the price of parking and gasoline to get to the State Fair makes it too expensive to go.. The insinuation is that it is cheaper to make homemade cream puffs and hire a band to play in your yard than it is to drive to and park at the fair. Then the male voice (or narrator) mentions that she could have taken a shuttle bus or freeway flyer to the Fair.
Huh? Besides the fact that one would probably have to use gas to drive to the Park N Ride lots in the first place, if you have more than two people in the car, it is actually cheaper to park at the State Fair than the cost of bus fare.
I don't know which is worse... the ad agency that came up with the idea, or the person (or people) at the bus company for going ahead with it.
All the more reason that I should never turn my XM off. That was my fault.
(Side note to the IRS guy - I parked six cars in my yard today. Two cars more than the first Friday last year, but YTD one less than last year. Reasonable temps and low humidity on Saturday... a winning combination!)
