I Almost Forgot to Write a Title

Have you seen that new A&W add where this family is eating dinner at A&W and the poor Mom is desperately trying to keep her four young kids (all boys) in line while they're eating? And the dad is eating the new sirloin burger completely in his own world because the burger is so good? And the mom turns to him while he's eating and starts talking about how she'd really like to try for a girl again and what do you think would be a good name? And the dad says, "Sirloin" because he's still so into his burger he hasn't even heard what his wife is saying to him?

I don't think that add is very funny.

  1. ...and the sirloin burger isn't any good either.

    McDonalds' Angus burger is much better.

  2. Glen likes the Angus too, which is good, because that's the "restaurant" we go to the most. (I don't really like anything, except for the luxury of being able to go to a place where my kids can get their food instantly, with a toy, and play while I eat at my own pace without them whining at me or disturbing other people.)

  3. I think that the as is funny but I can understand why you would not find it funny.

  4. I thought the ad was kind of lame. I like the sirloin burger too and all but really...who gets into their food that much?? I think it's kind of dumb!

  5. Really Becky...it isn't funny? I think it's hilarious...I felt so comforted that I"m not the only one. Somehow I felt validated in trying to trick my husband to give up his sperm just one more time...except his isn't spent on the lust of food, his is spent fantasizing in football games. I might be doomed. But my heart goes out to you just the same.

  6. I was wondering where you were going with your post... then I read the last line. I cracked up laughing.

    I haven't seem the commercial. Doesn't matter. I really don't like A&W ads anyway...

  8. I could take it or leave it. It's kind of creepy how the A&W guy listens in on everyone's conversations though.

    And you know what commercial really bothers me, the Noodleboro ones, that board game for kids. I don't think the game would even be that awful, but who doesn't count and make sure she has enough cookies when you're serving a group of kids?! Seriously!!!!!

  9. I really don't think that there is any food especially at a fast food restaurant that would make any man not take notice when his wife is talking about TRYING for another baby.

  10. I think the commercial is stupid as is the one that Cindi mentioned, but I think the last line in your post is hilarious! I, like Rain, cracked up laughing.
