Sometimes you Americans crack me up!

Thanks to EOnline, I now know that one of the adverts being shown during the Superbowl is for Cialis. I am incredulous with laughter. Janet J can't show a boob "accidentally" but they can advertise a product for erectile dysfunction.

First of all, I didn't realise it was a real product as I just thought it was a load of Internet spam. The huge hoo-ha about Janet showing something half the population of the US possess but the networks can advertise that drug for men as it shows soft-focus couples being lovey-dovey! Hypocrites! I guess the trouble with Janet was that she was not advertsing anything other than nipple rings! Maybe they think she paved the way or something.

Disclaimer: I am not against boobs, nipple rings or men with problems in that area - just against corporate whoredom.

I know! Maybe if some big company would have paid to have Janet's boob tattooed with its logo, it would have been considered OK because it was advertising.

There was a pretty big stink about that commercial last year--especially the line in the commercial that goes something like, "if you experience an erection lasting more than four hours, seek immediate medical care." But it was overshadowed by Janetgate. Just ridiculous.
