Say What? [Feb. 7th, 2011|11:08 am]
terribleturnip
Okay, I was tired. And had made myself stay up until 9pm, because darn it, it was a Saturday night and going to bed at 8:30 on a Saturday night...alone...well, decrepitude is right around the corner, right? Or, getting another two cats and taking up scrapbooking.

So, whatever less than memorable show I'd been watching was over and I was shuffling into the kitchen to get a glass of water, walking out on a commercial that was just too energetic for me. Some guy, ostensibly older than I was, all mountain biking and surfing and master of the universe-ing, taking life by the short hairs, whatever...

Which why I was surprised to hear "Don't let a reptile dysfunction slow you down."

Reptile Dysfunction? And for a minute I'm thinking....car insurance? Is that a Geico with the Gecko thing...

And then I realized the voiceover was "Erectile"

And you may be thinking "huh, that's funny" or "maybe get your hearing checked" or "that's all you've got for me on a Monday?"

Which makes you normal.

I'm thinking "I can't believe that years of listening to those dumbass commercials and this is the first time I heard it as "Reptile Dysfuntion"...'cause that's funny.

Which makes me weird. But that's a crown I can wear in my sleep.

Oh wow! Hahaha - that IS funny! :) I had never heard it before like that, but you can guarantee that I won't ever hear it the "real" way anymore.

Anne heard it that way too, on a radio ad, when she was about eight. "Mom....what is reptile dysfunction?" This was 7:30 in the morning, on the way to her Catholic elementary school. I told her it was what killed all the dinosaurs.
