I don't believe it!

I don't watch a lot of television and when I do, it's usually BBC. On those rare occasions when I tune in to ITV, I turn into my granny.

'They're not advertising that on television, surely?'

First it was towels with wings, then sachets for cystitis, but last night was the end: Soften hard stools with Dulcoease.

In the words of Victor Meldrew, 'I don't believe it!'

It could be worse. Try explaining erectile dysfunction to an eight-year-old girl when an ad for viagra airs during a family program. I couldn't change the channel quick enough -- so now this mom is ALWAYS in charge of the remote!

Oh, I don't think we've gone that far!

This all gets me remembering that when my sister (who's 9 years younger than me) was really young, one time, an ad for a particular sanitary napkin aired on TV -- whereupon my sister proceeded to announce loudly to everyone in the room "That's what big sis uses!" ;(

Neither do I!

Liz, we have gone that far.... at least here.

I often see commercials for herpes medication, erectile disfunction, and weight-loss aids (complete with scantily clad models) during family programming.

So I just don't watch TV anymore. And the boy watches none.

If I turn into a granny when I watch TV-- and I do-- then I don't think you have anything to worry about.

That must have been so embarrassing, ytsl!

I'm afraid it's true, Welshcakes.

During family programming, Ruthie?! Are there no controls at all any more? As granny would say, 'What is the world coming to?'

We have half a dozen (free) porn channels here in Germany. Much like the snooker channel, except sometimes they confuse the pink with the brown ;-)

Oh god I've just seen the Dulcoease advert. I am considering myself disturbed!
