A Question for CPR

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

The Bush campaign has dropped a TV ad in which an image of Al Gore is followed by the subliminal word "RATS."

However, Bush has stated that he is convinced that the inclusion of the subliminal word was not intentional.

My question for CPR, since he is such a technical whizbang, is: how can the inclusion of that word not be intentional?

Besides, Subliminal advertising has been shown to be ineffectual by study after study. SOURCE: George Stepanapoulos (spell?) on Diane Sawyer's AM show after Bush denied knowledge of this ****SILLLYNESSSSS*.

HOWEVER.........you can believe that I have a Built In BS Detector that is set to HIGH whenever albore shows up with his 7th Face (or is it 12 now?) to pontificate and "clarify" what is for him only a "minor change in position" against his "usual steadfast advocacy of issues".

He gives worm turning a new meaning. The real problem with alBore is that no matter which way he SPINS, he ends up facing LEFT. And we know what that lead to after FDR/LBJ and alBore's Idol: Hubert the Left (aside from Daddy ((who had a tiny bit of sense)).

Did it say "RATS"? I thought it was "ASSHOLE"

Truth be told, The Great and Powerful All-Knowing All-Seeing Master-of-the-Universe cpr is pretty much correct. Notwithstanding the book Subliminal Seduction (Wilson Bryan Key), many experts have pretty much concluded that Key was rather full of popcorn and Coca-Colas (if not something else). I studied the pictures in the book (yes, I have it), and I'll be damned if I can detect a giant penis in a 7-Up ad.

But I must admit, if "CPR" flashed on the screen for 1/30 of a second, I'd probably be running for the door (and women and children be damned).

I once saw a vagina in a Johnny Walker ad..I was so revolted I had to consume the whole bottle to bring about mental and emotionable tranquility

You certainly would see the giant penis in 7-UP if you were an 8 with those two big holes.
