It is possible that some links from here, particularly those within the site, are now broken. If you encounter one of those, your best bet is to go to the new front page and hunt for it from there.

leaf blowerA while ago an idea for a TV ad popped into my head. It was so vivid that I feel like it must be a real ad that I just don't remember having seen, but I can find no evidence that is true.

The ad opens with a wife leaving the house and telling her husband to remember that he is supposed to clean the house while she is gone. Then a montage of him goofing off. Finally he gets up, goes to the garage and gets a leaf blower, and proceeds to clean the house with it, just blowing everything loose into a pile, out the door, and into the trash. Maybe the wife comes home and thanks him for doing such a great job.

It sounds like an ad for Home Depot.
