Chip Shot: A new study showed that 43% of women have used vibrators. From this I concluded that 57% of them purchased theirs new.

Here’s a short video from the Conan Obrien show, where Norm’s lightning fast wit, saves the interview. His very last comment put me on the floor.

Isn’t it interesting that the generations that grew up playing with toy guns, didn’t produce mass shooters like those we have today who grew up never being exposed to toy guns?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


This Holiday Ad Will Get Your Attention

Chip Shot: Stranger asks, “Could you tell me how to get to 425 Franklin Street?” Me: “What you’re gonna wanna do is type the address into your phone and then do what it says.”

This Holiday Ad Will Get Your Attention

 

The “most guts of the week” goes to Australian lingerie brand Honey Birdette which has rolled out a holiday commercial that that is sure to offend many … but the company brushes those snowflakes aside.

This spot is called “Office Party,” but it’s probably a little different than your company’s annual gathering. Unless you happen to have supermodels in skimpy underwear milling around for the entertainment of dudes in tuxedos.

Funny Ad Featuring “The Trainer”

 

 

Here’s a pretty entertaining ad for headphone maker ROC.

 

Cristiano Ronaldo may be one of the most famous footballers in the world (the Real Madrid forward is a four-time world player of the year), but he’s apparently not immune to an off-season slump that involves lying on the couch and eating junk food.

 

Consumer research has apparently shown that music can be a workout motivator. So in this funny ad, the “trainer,” played by YouTube actor-comedian Christian Busath of “Fruit Ninja” fame, can’t touch his toes or do a crunch, but he’s referred to as “a golden god” charged with bringing Ronaldo back from the slothful brink. He does it while wearing a tiny Speedo and attempting moves like windmills and lunges. (He’s unsuccessful at the latter because “my scrunchels are showing,” he says.)
