First of all, let me apologize in advance for unleashing these abominable nightmares upon you, my unsuspecting readers. Whenever they come on, I literally want to take a hammer and POUND THE SONGS OUT OF MY HEAD. Those of you who have forsaken commercial culture with your fancy DVRs and TiVo machines, you don't know how lucky you are. Once these horrors get inside your head, they twist and worm their way into your very soul. On the surface, "LET YOUR NEW LIFE BEGIN CALL 1-800-GET-SLIM" might not seem as insidious as "I LIVE I RIDE I AM I LIVE I RIDE I AM I LIVE I RIDE I AM" (over and over until, my GOD, your ears are bleeding!). But because the lap-band commercial is perkier and more fun to sing, I think it stays with you longer. Listen to them at your own peril. Mind you: Hearing them JUST ONCE may shatter your psyche FOREVER. But please do, and let me know which is worse.
