    <Thinking Cassi may not speak to him again, Scoobie scuffs his feet in the ground, hands Bach an Arctic Rush, then says.....>

    Sorry for making you sad Bach, you're my goofiest friend ever.

    <Scoobie turns back to Cassi, winks, then gives her the "thumbs up". ;)>

    <Nine is quietly going through PDA Bach's wallet whilst patting him comfortingly on the back>

    Ooh look, pictures. Err... why have you stuck this picture of Halle Berry's head onto this picture of... oh. Oh.

    <Nine puts everything back and returns the wallet to where it should be>

    <PDA Bach politely points out that the wallet was in the pocket, not, oh never mind.>
    What's wrong with putting Halle's picture on my driver's license? It usually makes the police officer laugh and gets me out of tickets.
    <PDA Bach takes a gulp of his Arctic Rush. He is having trouble identifying the flavor but offers his thanks to Cassi (by giving her half the Arctic Rush) and to Scoobie (by giving him the other half of the Arctic Rush.>

    <Scoobie feels just terrible for the mistake. He really did think it was supposed to be an "Arctic Flush">

    I previously had never seen the heads-on avertisement, so felt I was missing something. Last weekend I was in Reno and just playing the quarter machines in an area where I could see a TV screen in the bar. I could not hear the TV due to all the casino noise but got whiplash when I looked up suddenly from my poker machine to see the heads-on commercial on the screen. I feel so priveleged....LOL

    Unfortunately, what has happened is exactly what the advertiser wants. If the advertiser can get his or her message stuck in your head, no matter how stupid it it, and stupid tends to work better that intelligently saying something, therefore, you will now remember their Product name, and in fact they hope you'll rant about it, so more people hear and remember their product name.

    Kind of backfires when people won't buy the product because of the stupid commercials, though.
