When will they stop?

Posted Thursday, October 28, 2010, at 5:43 PM

They are there every time the TV is turned on. There are the shrieking, screeching, cackling, weird sounds. Will they ever stop?

Oh, you think I'm referring to the political ads. Could be. However, I could be writing about the Halloween ads. Have there always been so many Halloween commercials shown so frequently? It's surprising that the car manufacturers can even get a spot on TV between the spooks and the politicians.

What will the TV stations and newspapers do with all that extra time and paper once Halloween and the election are over? It would be nice if we had some peace and quiet in there, but we all know that Christmas ads will pop up immediately. The sounds of toy noises and children's laughter will be a refreshing change.

Don't forgot about all the "Black Friday" sale ads. They will be on from Halloween until the Monday after Thanksgiving, when the Christmas ads kick into overdrive.

I've noticed that the ad time is much longer lately too. Perhaps I have a short attention span, but after 3 or 4 commercials, I find myself losing interest in the show I was watching and move on to either another show, or just turn off the tv and find something else to do. I don't find tv as interesting anymore.

they have made me so sick with their lies and slanders Grown adults should be ashamed of themselves for doing childish actions. If you do this you never should get one vote.
