Toe fungus ads

I love the internet. There's so much to find on it. I just learned about blogging recently from my friend Dave. I thought his blog was so cool that that night, I went home and started The Zombieslayer blog. Now I look at his blog and say, "Dave, when are you going to update your blog?!"

I love the internet. All the free porn you could possibly want. What an invention.

But there's one thing I hate about the internet. Toe fungus ads.

I'd be going around, doing my research on en.wikipedia.org, downloading porn, catching the news on news.google.com, checking out my bookmarked favorite blogs, downloading more porn, checking sports rumors, and suddenly, a toe fungus ad. I don't care what it came up on, I immediately close the window. I don't care if it's 100 free pics of Aria Giovanni. I don't want to see a toe fungus ad.

They're disgusting. They're repulsive. Very few things in life are more hideous than a dirty pair of feet. Now, nice feet are sexy, but dirty feet with toe fungus, yuck! Not only that, toe fungus ads always have close ups of nasty feet. Double yuck!

Remember Cindy Crawford? Remember how she used to be the rage, the supermodel? Well, she had bad feet. One day I saw her in an interview and she flashed her feet up to the camera. Ever since then, her hotness went from 9 to 4. I'm serious too. I'll readily admit I have a slight foot fetish and cute feet with average looks is way better than hot everything else but bad feet. Fine, I'm weird.

But that said, if you're running a website and you have a toe fungus ad for your advertiser, I'm warning you that you're doing more to hurt your website than you can possibly make from the toe fungus ad. Anyone else disgusted by them?

Their still not as bad as the Levitra ads; "erections that last longer than 4 hours are not normal and you should seek immeadiate medical attention." How many takes did they have to do before that guy could get through it without bursting out in laughter?

What I don't see is how anyone can appear in an erection dysfunction ad. "Hi everyone in the world. I can't get it up anymore." Do some people have no shame?

Thank heavens I have software that blocks that stuff.

But at work, I"m really getting sick of people wanting to make my johnson bigger when I don't have one.

I've missed the toe fungus ads, but I'm no one to talk. I have little hairy Hobbit feet, and until my recent surgery had these disgusting calloused tumors on one heel. That must lower me to Cindy Crawford's level. ;-)

You know what actress has super bad feet? Uma Thurman. You get to see them up close in Kill Bill vol. 1
She has like a size 11 foot with lots of gnarly bones and veins--not feminine at all.

I ran a post on my blog DAILY GAGGLE April 4-05, on ill timed TV advertising. I mentioned the dirty fungi diseased yellow smelly toenail Ad, among other things.
The first comment was received from 'Mercurie' USA, who stated they also enjoy watching this advert at mealtimes.

There's an ad somewhere on TV that starts:

"Hi, I'm (I forget the name) - I'm a damataphite(?) and I live under your toes."
Wouldn't you know they have a CGI of that nasty yellow thing Kicking the toe, and the TOE nail 'pops up' and he jumps into a fleshy/ pink bed to join his 'friends'.

This has seriously turned me off at times when I didn't think I could be turned off.

If I could just get my Lotrimin and/or Lamasil on that Damataphie(?) and get a my fill of the sweetest nectar that is .. .REVENGE.

Ben. Big 'E's' are a reflection of my past. Its 5 mins now and hurry hurry or I lose interest.
I feel certain that, using the option of these enhancing medications; in my case may prove to be Euthanasing.

vest; understand I am not attacking the people who use those drugs, I just think that the wording on the warning could have been phrased a little better, I mean "erections that last longer than 4 hours are not normal and you should seek immeadiate medical attention." sounds pretty funny/dumb doesn't it?

Zombie S. post done on daily gaggle. Today I refused to be bullied into picking up both of my neighbours Bow Wows calling cards, I was quite polite about the matter to my nodding acquaintance neighbours, who were anything but polite in return, its so sad when this happens. My granddaughter walked it in on her shoes.
I shall overlook the cleaning expense.
Tomorrow a local govt inspector will be making a unanounced call to view the poo and round up the illegaly roaming hounds and arbitrate the dispute.
My Idyllic lifestyle is about to be plagued by controversy and I am not blaming the doggies,it's the unthinking people who allow this to happen, I have been shovelling this poo for about 3 years now and today I called it Quits.
I apoligize for my comment having nothing to do with erections, I should have headed the comment 'Getting It Up Your Nose.'

Vest - I sympathize. We bought a corner house because it has both large front yards and back yards. We're thinking of putting up a fence in the front because some of our neighbors allow their dogs to leave behind presents in our front yard.

My buddy John at work says to shoot the dogs, but I'm a dog-lover. I'd sooner the owner. However, I'm thinking of just leaving out the video camera so I could find which dog it is, then collecting the dog's presents in a bag and delivering them to their door with a copy of the videotape.

Not that I'd ever get around to doing that though, got a million other things on my plate.

ZS, try putting it in a paper bag on their front step, lighting it on fire, and ringing their doorbell.
