Trivial, fabric-of-everyday-life stuff really

Ordinary-sized people riding around in truck-sized 4X4s now look as silly as the fat blokes in bubble cars we used to laugh at in 70s sketch shows.

AND I think they should put a ‘thank you’ button on those automated check-outs in supermarkets. I miss saying ‘thank you’ (and I guess the machine could be programmed to say ‘you’re welcome’ back).

AND I think we’ve arrived at saturation for TV ads involving groups (sometimes crowds) of ordinary people completing funny/whimsical tasks or assembling funny/whimsical objects (current examples from Orange, Guinness and Sony have pushed me over the edge). Enough (and where are all the bloody photos of fat blokes in bubble cars now that I need one?).
