What is true that strikes you as bizarre or disgusting?--Al

When you flush a toilet, the top layer of -- I guess the water, bacteria, whatever -- can be sprayed up to six feet.

Just a comment on the Britney Spears ad.

I don't see that the Bob Dole reaction thing is so wrong considered apart from what Britney is doing and wearing--or not wearing. In other words, I think what Britney is doing is wrong--she is too young to be projecting such a sexualized image. And the "reaction shots" of the guy staring open-mouthed while the barbecue burns and Bob Dole saying "down boy" are just meant to underscore that sexualized image. So, I really don't see that singling out just one part of the package is appropriate.

How old is Britney Spears? 16? If she is under 18, her behavior in the commercial is questionable, and Pepsi should get the blame for exploiting her. Just my opinion.

It is true that fashion designers and clothes models set the style. It is also true that models appear to be in the last stages of anorexia.

True and VERY disgusting.

Al tells me that Britney is really 19. I honestly thought she was underage. She still looks jailbait-y to me. But I guess I can't really blame Pepsi for hiring her.

I don't have any of her cd's/tapes, and don't plan to buy any. I'll buy Pepsi only if it is on sale.
