New Hampshire in the Morning

Rats! No wonder I can’t get TV work

M – What’s the deal with rats starring in TV commercials these days? There’s a funny ad for a car company that stars some ghetto rodents wearing hip hop clothing driving around that’s actually pretty amusing. The other is an Orkin commercial that also features real-life rats. With all the unemployed actors looking for work, why are casting directors hiring rats? Are we outsourcing acting jobs to lower life forms the way we’ve outsourced call centers overseas?

Oh..something else that made me go, “Huh?” I just put down some lawn fertilizer this morning and noticed that it says “Green meadow scent” on the bag. Do we really need to make fertilizer smell like cheap French perfume? Seriously, it reminds me of one of those awful plug-in scent things for your home. Actually, it smells like a cross between fertilizer and scented dryer sheets. What’s next? A hanging Scotts fertilizer air freshener for my car? Maybe next time I fertilize, I should pick up some cow manure at my local farm…that ALSO has a “green mountain” scent…the REAL kind!
