Dumb Advert

I saw a television advert for vacuum cleaners. It showed a family dancing about their house with a vacuum cleaner.

The excitable voice-over said that this vacuum cleaner would keep the carpet really, really clean.

If the family in the advert wanted to keep their carpet really clean, they might like to stop dancing about their house with their shoes on. That would be a good start.

Or get tile.

What do you think of tile/linoleoum with shoes?

Thanks for asking.

Shoes in the house is a bad idea with any kind of floor.

Shoes can leave marks. High heels can scratch.

Shoes bring in dust and traces of nasty stuff like dog excrement and pesticide. Not good for children.

Looolllllll, good one Matthew. Only you would notice that.

Haaaaaa, I was drinking water while reading this and you made me spit it on my computer, gross I know,...but that's too funny.

Dyspraxic Fundamentalist said...

Am I really that funny?

Thanks for dropping in again, Sarah.

God Bless

LOL, Sarah!

I like the idea of dancing while vacuuming. Perhaps that would make the chore more fun. Haha.

"Shoes bring in dust and traces of nasty stuff like dog excrement and pesticide. Not good for children."

None of us chatting (at the moment) has children, so what's the worry?

Unless you count my daughter... but she's an animal and makes a mess on the floor anyway.

Carey, dust and toxic dirt is not good for adults either. It is just worse for children, that is why I mention them.

God Bless

I think I've mentioned this before, but I like trying tricks with my vaccum.

For example, we live near the water, and oh the joy when summer comes along. BEES!!!! My mom has an old AC in her room and they somehow manage to come through that thing. I grab the vaccum and chase them!

It is so much fun...a little scary cuz I hate them things...but when I get one, I do a psychotic laugh and I feel so strong!!!!!!!!

Carey said...

*rolling on the floor laughing* Sarah, you are hysterical. I used to live in an apartment that had a bee problem. Only instead of the vacuum cleaner, I would shoot them out of the air using rubber bands. It was rather funny. WARNING: beware of me when I have a rubber band. I have excellent aim.

LOL, reminded me of a funny story (dealing with me, a youth pastor, and a rubber band). Later on that one.

Redeemed said...

Ok, you'll have to tell me about that one.

Lol, you're so funny. I can only imagine you and I chasing bees...one with a rubber band and the other with a vaccum.

We're so psycho,lol (in a nice classy way of course)

Carey said...

We're going to have a lot of fun! Sarah, we should start a psycho-cutist blog! *laughing*

Carey said...

I will try to post that story on my blog during my lunch break.

Redeemed said...

Psycho-cutist blog!!!! That is such a good idea. Cute and psycotic, me likes!

Dyspraxic Fundamentalist said...

Thanks a lot, Jel. You too.

Beware of the Psycho Cult.

Carey said...

Beware of crazed Scottish women.

*laughs insanely*

Just kidding. Glad you like my idea, Sarah. Sorry I haven't posted that story yet. The entire campus computer system was down. I was so sad. :-(

Redeemed said...

Lol, Matthew!!!!

That's Ok, Carey, no rush. I've been laughing so much over here, I think I got a facelift.
