    Why do you watch commercial television? I can't tolerate commercials anymore.

    Yep. When we do want to watch commercial TV, I pause the playback on the DVR for about 20 to 30 minutes, so I can skip thorugh commercials.

    On the few occasions that we watch commercial television, I always hit the mute button during commercials. There are commercials playing that I've seen for several years, but have never once heard the audio to them......I'm that good at avoiding listening to them. Think of me as a champion skeet shooter, only with a mute button rather than a fancy Italian shotgun.

    "If you or a loved one has taken [drug name here] and has contracted [condition name here] or died, call now!"

    That one cracks me up too.

    But what if I called before and then hung up? I mean, I did call. They should be happy with that, right?

    I never call right away unless they promise me that the item is "new and improved."

    But wait. If you order now, you'll receive two of the items, just pay an extra fee. Of course, they never tell you what the extra fee is before you order.

    I always wondered if there was a dead guy in the next room behind the TV, and how much did it cost to cover that one up?

    I cancelled my cable tv three weeks ago. Don't miss it at all. I've got Netflix and ROKU for streaming.
