Not As Intended

I went to the cinema on the weekend and saw the new Sandler/Cheadle flick Reign Over Me. With such a perfectly cast ensemble, and brilliantly written and thought-provoking script, surely I must have learnt something from this exercise of pictorial art?

Did I learn that friendship can overcome all?


Did I learn about the inner workings of post-traumatic stress and mental illness as a whole?

Not really.

What I did learn is this:

Motor scooters are really cool.

I worry about myself sometimes too.

A Pun So Terrible, It Has To Be Shared

Sam of Culture Strain raises an interesting point about the publicity shot for the film/doco Bra Boys. Please inspect the following... was that a publicity shot, or a pube-licity shot?

I'll just get my coat...

P.S. Bra Boys, please don't come to my house and hurt me for this.

Unnecessary Product Of The Year

As if bottled mineral water wasn't as unnecessary, expensive and a ridiculous status symbol to boot (Hey! Look at me! I'm drinking expensive bottled water! No drinking out of the tap for me!), some bright spark has taken it one step further. Introducing "Aqua Dog", water for dogs with a splash of beef.

I struggle to understand the reasoning behind this niche marketing. I can only muse that, somewhere, someone believed that they had a brief moment of genius to think of producing this doggie delicacy.

Once again my faith in the intelligence of the average person takes a hit.

And so, Aqua Dog recieves my nomination for Unnecessary Product Of The Year. But of course, if you have your own nomination for Unnecessary Product Of The Year, I implore you to drop a comment into the box provided, or send your photographic evidence to couchculture Although something tells me that Aqua Dog will be hard to beat.
